Nobody ever said winning is supposed to be easy, especially in division play. That has been true for the Eagles and Washington for a long time and continued to be the case on Sunday afternoon.
The first half of the season was a complete disaster for Philadelphia. Turnovers on the first two drives of the game were followed by three straight punts and an interception before halftime. The offensive line got banged up with injuries and running back LeSean McCoy was a non-factor. Fortunately for the Eagles, the second half was much better.
The Philadelphia Eagles handled a close game against a tough Arizona Cardinals team. See how Nick Foles, Chip Kelly and others performed during the home win against the Cardinals.
The Eagles got another solid game out of their offense and the defense handled a weakened opposing offense. This is what good teams do, but the Eagles still have some work to do before being counted as a good team in the NFC.
This one stings. The Eagles offense folded against a Cowboys defense that was vulnerable and incapable of taking advantage of a nice game put in by the defense.
The Eagles should not get too carried away with picking up their second win in a game that saw the Giants drop to 0-5 on the season, but the defense made plays, special teams did their part and Nick Foles proved why the Eagles felt a need to keep him on the roster despite using Mike Vick as the starter.
The bad news is each loss seems to have gotten worse by the week for the Philadelphia Eagles. The good news is it cannot get much worse than their 52-20 loss against the Denver Broncos. Can it?
Two games in a row a team from the AFC West flew to Philadelphia off a short week and controlled the Eagles in their home stadium. There was plenty of blame to pass around in this one.
The Eagles had the offense but the defense struggled in a big way to slow down the Chargers in the home opener. Here’s how the grades look for the Eagles for the second game of the season.
The first half was a thing of beauty for the entire Philadelphia Eagles offense. We knew the offense was going to be fun to watch, but the play of the defense was an added bonus in the first half.
