Eagles Week 11 studs and duds as Philadelphia earns its first home win
In Week 11, the Philadelphia Eagles continued their impressive ascension.
We all have learned over time that the appropriate way to handle the week-to-week grind of the NFL is to avoid getting too high after wins and two low after losses, but you should smile a little bit as we move towards another Thanksgiving holiday. The Philadelphia Eagles are officially on a two-game winning streak, their first winning streak since last season.
We have the New Orleans Saints to thank for that. Week 11’s game unfolded much like Philly’s victory in Week 10. The Birds racked up more than 200 yards rushing. They were good enough on defense. Jalen Hurts delivered timely throws from the pocket and torched the opposing defense when he decided to tuck the ball and run.
And, how about Jake Elliott? We don’t like to bring him up for fear of jinxing him, but he’s turned things around after some up-and-down play for the better part of the past season plus.
In Week 11, Elliott had his best day in quite some time, nailing all four of his field-goal attempts and extra points including a 50-yarder, en route to a 16-point performance. Dare we say it? The Eagles may not have won this game without him.
We bury the guy when he struggles, so with that being said, we must give him kudos when he performs well. Give him a game ball for his day in Week 11, along with a few more heroes that deserve game balls as well.
There are a ton of guys that deserve them. Here are five that really stood out to us.
