Jacksonville Jaguars 13 - 6 Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles have lost three straight games. The Eagles offense lost this one. Coming into this game they were averaging over 500 yards per game yet managed only 227 yards and no TDs against the Jags.
Eagle Eye Report:
For the second week in a row the Eagles lose to a back-up quarterback who does just enough to win without making any mistakes.
Garrard's stats: 10 comp., 17 att., 87 yds., 0 TDs, 0 INTs, 0 fum., sacked once.
Stallworth played for the Eagles but was a non-factor, 3 catches for 56 yards and no TDs.
An Easy Eagles Win
It should now be obvious to the Eagles players and coaches that they are not as good as they keep telling us they are - they are a 4 win and 4 loss team mid-way through the season. And the second half of the season looks more difficult than the first. Please stop telling us that you are better than your record and show us by winning some games.
Before today's game the Eagles had been throwing deep a lot, but today wide receivers caught just 5 passes. Was it the wind?
Did you notice?
With just a few minutes left in the third quarter the Eagles had managed just 5 first downs - the Jags had 11 at the time. Also the Jags ran for over two hundred yards.
