These Philadelphia Eagles were grand letdowns in Week 11.

Zero: Jason Peters, Left Tackle.

The future Pro Football Hall of Fame tackle, Jason Peters, continues to play every game like he’s never played pro football before. Peters missed multiple blocks, leaving Wentz open to take multiple hits by the Cleveland Browns’ pass rush.

There were already concerns from fans about whether or not Peters taking the left tackle spot back from Jordan Mailata was a good idea, and all of the concerns were given some fuel in this one. Peters looks slow, unprepared, and lost almost the entire time that he was on the field. That was before he checked himself out with an injury again. Retirement needs to be a major thought for Peters in the offseason.

Zero: Every wide receiver not named Reagor.

The Philadelphia Eagles receiving corps finds themselves once again on the wrong side of this list. They can’t consistently beat the opposing team’s coverage. they’re seemingly always bumped off of their routes. Play-calling hasn’t really done this unit any favors, but they have struggled heavily over the past few weeks to generate plays.

Zero: Jalen Mills, Safety. 

It is time to officially say that Jalen Mills is just as bad a safety as he is a cornerback. Week 11’s game solidified that the experiment is a failure, and the Eagles need to figure out another option at safety. Outside of one play against running back Kareem Hunt, Mills had multiple blown assignments against a mediocre Browns passing game. Nothing else to be really said on the matter, he is just not the answer at safety that the Eagles were hoping for.
