Despite a lackluster affair, a few Eagles served as bright spots.

When your team is struggling, you can only hope that your stars can make big plays when needed. Credit these Eagles for assisting in giving Philly a shot at winning. They'll be needed to shine moving forward as well.

2. Stud - defensive tackle Jordan Davis

The vibes told us that Jordan Davis needed to step up with his buddy Jalen Carter out, and he did exactly that. He was the space-eater that Philly needed him to be, and he even split a sack with Brandon Graham.

3. Stud- linebacker Nicholas Morrow

Some thought Nakobe Dean's return meant the disapperance of Nicholas Morrow would follow, and all he did was lead the Eagles in total tackles. Credit the coaches for sticking with him.

4. Stud - wide receiver A.J. Brown

As far as we are concerned, if Philly's offense is ever in a pinch, A.J. Brown can stand on the sideline and complain about needing more touches whenever he wants. When you get this guy the ball, good things happen.

With seven receptions and 131 yards receiving in this one, he becomes the first Eagle to ever eclipse 125 yards receiving in four straight games. You can't blame this loss on him.
