Another Sunday, another ugly Eagles loss. The final score was 33-22, but the game wasn’t that close. The Eagles have now fallen to 2-5 and are one of the worst teams in the league. All the optimism from the opening Sunday is long since gone.

After going up 7-0 and looking good, the Eagles fell apart. They gave up 30 unanswered points to trail 30-7. Ugh.

Derek Carr went 31-34 as a passer. That would be impressive in practice. It is embarrassing to see an Eagles defense allow that kind of performance. DC Jonathan Gannon is less popular in Philly than a Cheesesteak from Arby’s.

The Eagles did try to run the ball but an early injury to Miles Sanders (on a screen) changed the offense and led to some real issues.

Eagles have trailed by 12 or more points in 6 games this year, most in the league. Trailed by 10 or more 12 times last year. That is some bad football.

Lions

Jaguars
