Nick Foles to Tyreek Hill is my new favorite preseason connection

Tyreek the Freak is showing himself. After an electrifying training camp, some of Tyreek Hill’s talent is translating to the field. Hill had a near 20-plus yard catch from Nick Foles in the second half of Saturday’s game against the Bears. This after he had a 20-plus catch from Foles last week, too.

And then...

Foles wound up later in the same drive and threw a bomb to Hill. The ball was underthrown - it’s impossible to overthrow him - so Hill stopped, the defender fell down and he tracked the ball to make the catch. Boom, 58 yards.

Note his hands -- he barely makes that catch. His hands are strong enough to hold it in. Hill is showing he is a true wide receiver, and not a gadget player. Great catch.
