The Philadelphia Eagles have been sloppy in 2019, shooting themselves in the foot but keeping games close. Here are three points that must be revisited.
The Philadelphia Eagles have been sloppy, to say the least in 2019, often shooting themselves in the foot but managing to keep games close. While all the attention has gone to dropped passes and fumbles, they aren’t the only aspects of the team’s game that needs to improve that need to improve.
It’s already been highly publicized that the Eagles had seven dropped passes, three offensive pass interference calls that went against them, and two lost fumbles against the Detroit Lions. It’s also well known that Nelson Agholor dropped a potential game-winning touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2. This has led many fans to the same conclusion. ‘Carson Wentz can’t do everything’.
