02/05/18 - TE Zach Ertz had seven receptions for 67 yards, and five were good for first downs with four on third down and one on fourth down. They led to three touchdowns, with three coming on the possession that put the Eagles ahead 38-33 with 2:21 to play in the game.
In that drive, he had a 7-yard reception on third-and-6, a 2-yard catch on fourth-and-1, and then an 11-yard touchdown on third-and-7.
Often aggressive head coach Doug Pederson opted to go for the first down on fourth down with the Eagles on their 45-yard line and 5:39 remaining in the game.
Ertz said he hopes to get the ball in important situations. He said, "I want to get the ball whenever the situation calls for it. We have a lot of talented guys on this football team. They've done an amazing job building this roster. When the situation calls for it, they trusted me. That's all I can ask."
01/25/18 - TE Zach Ertz likely will keep his eyes on the field during Super Bowl LII even when his offense is on the sideline. Ertz admitted to reporters on Wednesday that he routinely studies fellow tight ends, and that includes New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski. "The guy's a physical specimen," Ertz said. "He's a freak. He's a beast after the catch. He's able to use his body even when he's not open to get open with the frame he has. He's definitely been the premier tight end in this league for a long time (and) I think he'd still be producing those numbers without Tom Brady."
01/08/18 - TE Zach Ertz has eight touchdown catches. All eight have been in the red zone. The Eagles finished first in red-zone touchdown percentage this season.
12/18/17 - TE Zach Ertz, who missed last week's game with a concussion, had six catches for 56 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Giants.
12/13/17 - TE Zach Ertz has cleared concussion protocol, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday. "He's good to go," Pederson said of Ertz, who sustained a concussion during the third quarter of a 24-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 3. The 27-year-old Ertz leads the Eagles with 57 receptions to go along with 663 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
