Forgive us if we still haven't put the Eagles Week 6 loss to the Jets behind us.
When it rains it pours, and that’s exactly the kind of metaphorical weather the Philadelphia Eagles found themselves in during their Week 6 loss. There were various degrees of injuries, missed opportunities, and a plethora of turnovers.
Some of these problems are correctable, and some of them are not. Here's what we'll do. Let’s do our best to find solace and dissect everything that went wrong, so we can finally put this loss behind us.
1. Lane Johnson's injury comes on the Eagles' second drive.
Right tackle Lane Johnson is the best in the business. Everyone knows that, but that point is driven home every time he is forced out of the lineup. In his absence, Jack Driscoll was asked to fill in. Lane's absence was noticed immediately. The Eagles O-line struggled all game long as quarterback Jalen Hurts was under constant duress.
Hopefully, Lane will be back sooner rather than later. Philly shouldn't rush him though. Injuries happen in football, so when it's all said and done, Philly has to just wait and see.
With a murderers’ row of opponents ahead, the Eagles must correct every issue that's fixable. Let's look at another 11 mishaps from Week 6 and see how many of them are.
