Here are some things they took away from the Eagles’ 24-23 loss to the Lions.

1. Carson continues to impress

Carson Wentz was the highest graded (79.7) PHI offensive player. “The poise he continues to show is reminiscent of far more experienced quarterbacks,” Khaled Elsayed of PFF wrote.

2. High grades for the o-line

The next four highest graded offensive Eagles were all offensive lineman, with Brandon Brooks getting the highest grade of the bunch (79.4)

The bad news is, this means the Eagles’ skill players made little impact: “The grades indicate that neither the receivers nor runners did an awful lot to make a difference.

3. Nigel Bradham was excellent

Bradham was the Eagles’ best defensive player (86.8) according to PFF. The Eagles played dime a bunch in the first half and Bradham didn’t see as many snaps in the first half as he did in the second half. In the final 30 minutes, the Eagles allowed just 45 yards and three points, in large part to Bradham who finished with five tackles and three for a loss.

4. Brandon Graham dominant again

“It was another dominant display by the underrated Graham who was simply too powerful for right tackle Riley Reiff,” PFF wrote. Graham has three sacks, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery in four games already this season.
