EAGLES 24 – giants 19
WELL we won. Did we lean on a lot of our youth? No. Did they at least get a significant amount of playing time? No. Did our regular starters at least win by blowout? No. So what got proved? Nothing. Building blocks established? None. But at least we won, right?
QB Carson Wentz (13/24 – 54.1% – 152 – 1 – 1) threw his 14th touchdown of the season along with his 14th interception of the season. At one point he was knocked from the game, and had to be taken back to the locker room to evaluate him for a concussion. He would later be placed back in the game for some reason.
RB Ryan Mathews (18 – 46 – 2.5 – 0 – 0) led the rushing attack, though it was RB Darren Sproles (7 – 40 – 5.7 – 1 – 0) who kicked off the scoring with a 25 yard TD run. WR Nelson Agholor (2 – 47 – 23.5 – 1) led the team in receiving yards and also scored a TD, on a 40 yard pass from Wentz.
S Malcolm Jenkins (5 – 0 – 2 – 0) brought one of his interceptions back for a 34 yard score, in the first quarter. However, the real story here is the total absence of sacks on a QB like Eli Manning.
Did you notice?
That we need to draft starting RB.
