Here are more missed opportunities that won’t make Philadelphia Eagles fans happy.

Yes, there is more to talk about. QB1 has got to be better.

Early in the fourth, the Eagles faced a 3rd and two. Goedert motioned and a defender followed him signaling man coverage. Reagor, who was lined up in a bunch formation, made his way to the boundary side of the field. Denzel Ward followed him but was late getting over. Fulgham ran a dig route in man coverage so there was no one in the flat where Reagor ran to.

Even though 18 might not have been the first read, Wentz could’ve hit him for a big play. Reagor was standing there with his arms up. It’s not a terrible read. Wentz still hit Rodgers for a 29-yard gain but Reagor in the open field is a dream.

On the last play of the first quarter, the Eagles were at their own three-yard line on second and eight. The Browns called man coverage with a safety in a deep zone and a linebacker zoned up in the middle of the field. Eagles Head coach Doug Pederson goes 12 personnel with a tight end and receiver on each side of the formation. Travis Fulgham and Reagor ran mirrored out routes. Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers ran mirrored flat routes. Miles Sanders) sat in the middle of the field as a possible check down.

Reagor used a one-step release and began stemming outside. Once he got to the top of his route, he stuck out his elbow and winged off the cornerback. By leaning into him, he knocked him off balance without illegally extending his arm. He broked outside and Wentz delivered the ball a bit low and short. Sure it was raining but that ball has to be delivered on the money. It still ended up being a 16-yard catch though.
