The Philadelphia Eagle offensive line continued to struggle in Week 10.

Duds: Sua Opeta and Matt Pryor, the offensive line

The offensive line didn’t play well, but Matt Pryor and Sua Opeta stuck out like sore thumbs. Both have had rough seasons so far. Pryor was unable to anchor his feet. He struggled versus the Giants’ blitz. He was vulnerable to the bull rush. Pryor was a huge liability in the run game and in pass protection.

Sua Opeta had similar struggles. If you’re an Eagles fan and you’re wondering why Jordan Mailata was on the bench, why Jason Peters was in at left tackle, and why both guard positions looked as bad as they did, you are not alone. This unit isn’t getting any better.

Dud: Jason Kelce, center

Jason Kelce didn’t look good. He had multiple bad snaps in this game that put this team in tough situations. This may have been one of his worst games.

Duds: Any Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver or tight end not named Richard Rodgers

It is shocking to see Travis Fulgham on the dud list after he had played so well in previous weeks, but winning this game was going to come down to execution, and Philly didn’t do that well. Their receivers looked, well, slow.

Yes, Wentz didn’t give them a shot because of some of the high throws. Yes, Pederson’s play-calling was awful (we will get to that in a second), but there were several moments where Philly’s tight ends and wide receivers didn’t fight to get open or fight at the catch point either.
