Coming off of their first Super Bowl win in franchise history, the hopes were high for the Philadelphia Eagles. Having said that, it was clear early on that things might be off with this team. The thought was that the return of Carson Wentz in Week 3 would help that, but that has yet to be the case. Now they are coming off a short week trying to right the ship against a divisional rival, the New York Giants, the road.
Wentz has performed exceptionally well to this point given what’s been going on around him. Even still, the offense has been a lesser version than it was last season. With Jay Ajayi out for the season now, joining a number of other injured Eagles on offense, this unit really has to start scheming better ways to make explosive plays, as they did with Foles last year.
As for the Philadelphia defense, that’s an even more confusing group than the one on the other side of the ball. There is undeniable talent with the likes of Brandon Graham and others, but we’ve yet to see them perform at the same level. If this team is to get back to having a firm grasp on the NFC East, they will have to step up defensively moving forward.
Of course, in terms of stepping up, the Giants have been abysmal for the most part as a whole this season. The offense showed life last weekend with explosive plays from Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley. However, neither they nor anyone else on the offense has been doing anything with consistency in the slightest.
