How about another hand for the Eagles’ offense?

There isn’t much time to celebrate. Next up on the schedule is a road game in Landover versus the Washington Commanders on a short week. The 24-hour rule is definitely in effect, but we have to give one last tip of the cap to the Eagles’ offense.

Miles Sanders, running back

The name of the game was ball control, and the Birds did all that they could on the offensive side to keep the high-powered Vikings attack sidelined. Philadelphia dominated time of possession to the tune of 36 minutes and 14 seconds, thanks in part to 80 yards on 17 carries by Miles Sanders.

Dallas Goedert, tight end

Dallas Goedert had a respectable showing in Week 1, and he followed that up by leading all Eagles receivers in yards gained with 86 big ones on five snags in primetime.

DeVonta Smith, wide receiver

Rumors of an offense void of DeVonta Smith have been grossly exaggerated. After being shut out in Week 1, Number 6 showed tremendous maturity all week, and with offensive coordinator Shane Steichen looking to get his second-year star involved, Smitty answered the call.

Try seven catches on seven targets and 80 yards receiving on for size.

Quez Watkins, wide receiver

This one’s obvious. Jalen Hurts doesn’t deliver a 53-yard rainbow without Quez Watkins being on the receiving end to run under it. His touchdown reception was a thing of beauty.
