The Philadelphia Eagles have more than their fair share of liabilities.

Dud: Matt Pryor, Right Tackle

Honestly, anyone could’ve been in at right tackle and done a better job than Matt Pryor did for this team versus Dallas. He was flagged for multiple penalties and he missed blocks. All of which led to the Eagles being behind the chains drive after drive. Let’s move on before we all get angry.

Dud: Jalen Hurts, Quarterback

Was he not just on the stud list? Yes. Yes, he was. but just like one must do when credit is due, criticism must be given when appropriate. The rookie signal-caller had his fair share of questionable moments as one might expect. He was gun shy on a few plays. He pulled the ball down and ran when there were wide open targets in front of him, and he threw two very awful looking picks.

Dud: The offensive line, not including Jason Kelce

Even with Mailata playing well for most of the game, there were bad plays by the left tackle. As a matter of fact, from left to right (hopping over the center), the offensive line wasn’t good by any means. The blocking was bad. The penalities were worse. It finally seems like the injuries have caught up with them.

The line changes have set this team back, but the Eagles have avoided major game-breaking play for a large majority of the season (until Week 16 that is). This has been a long time coming, but with a lot riding on this game’s outcome, the offensive line couldn’t hold up and it was tough to watch.
