PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — That dude is on fire.
28 touchdown to three interceptions this season, for Aaron Rodgers. He has not thrown an interception at home since December 2nd, 2012, and Sunday was no exception, as the Eagles’ NFL best 22 straight games with at least one takeaway came to an end.
It didn’t matter what the Eagles’ defense did, Rodgers could not miss and the Packers routed the Birds. It was much easier finding duds than studs this week, but here we go.
3. Josh Huff
As Huff continues to make negative plays that cost the Eagles points, I’m going to continue to put him on my list of duds. It’s every week now. This week, it was the punt coverage play where Huff just stood idle and watched the returner catch a ball that should have been fair caught, and proceeded to return it for a touchdown.
Never mind his zero-catch performance highlighted by a blatant drop over the middle (shown above).
2. Mark Sanchez
Two interceptions and two fumbles.
While Sanchez wasn’t atrocious and did make some nice in-the-pocket throws, four costly turnovers will kill you every time. We want Foles! Just kidding.
1. Bradley Fletcher
Fletcher got crushed all night and there was nothing anyone could do about it, but watch. The Packers’ outside receivers, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, combined for 14 catches, 238 yards, and a touchdown.
3. Cody Parkey
Tough to find studs in a blowout, but Parkey keeps making field goals. Parkey, 2-2 on Sunday, has made his last 15 field goal attempts, tying him for the fifth-longest streak in team history.
2. Jeremy Maclin
Maclin continued his breakout season on Sunday, catching a team-high nine passes for 93 yards, and he got in the end zone for his ninth time of the season. J-Mac has scored seven of 10 games this year and in nine of his last 12 games.
1. Jordan Matthews
Other than one crucial drop, Matthews was spectacular once again leading the Eagles with 107 receiving yards on five catches, and scoring his sixth touchdown of the season. Over the last two weeks, Matthews has tallied 12 receptions for 155 yards and three touchdowns, becoming the third Eagles rookie ever to have back-to-back 100-yard games.
