EAGLES 23 – Cowboys 29 OT
IT was your typical Eagles/Cowboys game. It went back and forth of course. We were down (3 -10), then they were down (23 – 13), then we wouldn’t knock off the fucking Screen passes, fumbled the ball… Just generally played without an edge on Offense. So basically, the Eagles gave away this game.
QB Carson Wentz (32/43 – 74.4% – 202 – 1 – 0) was his usual poised self out there, as he directed a bland Offense. Statistically his game looks fine, but if you watched him in action, you had to be left wanting more. RB Darren Sproles (15 – 86 – 5.7 – 0 – 0) for some reason got about 2/3 of the Eagles carries. The most telling stat of the night belonged to WR Jordan Matthews (11 – 65 – 5.9 – 1), as his receiving stats looked more like rushing stats. The ball simply did not get downfield enough in this game. (As in others)
Except for Jordan “Cowboy Killer” Hicks (4 – 0 – 1 – 0) picking off a pass in the end zone to kill a drive, there weren’t many standout moments in this game for this unit. The 187 rushing yards we surrendered were a sure sign that we were missing DT Bennie Logan this week. Also it seemed the only way for us to get pressure, was to blitz.
Did you notice?
A rare moment of aggression from Doug Pederson, when he called the same WR pass that Dallas tried to run against us. Doug seems to be a good tactician, but ballsy he is not. It was good to see him “man up” for a change.
