The New York Jets hosted the Philadelphia Eagles in north Jersey, and the Defense did indeed win the game. But not the Defense that everyone was predicting. Our Eagles Defense grabbed four turnovers and kept the Jets Offense stumbling at times, not able to accomplish much.
The Eagles Offense, on the other hand, were more effective and were more of a cohesive unit, despite DeMarco Murray being out with an injury. Quarterback Sam Bradford looked more confident, but still struggled with accuracy. But more of a concern was the dropped passes, at least one to two of them could have been converted into touchdowns.
Darren Sproles was another bright spot, running back a punt for a touchdown in very exciting fashion. He’s just so damn good.
This week the Eagles take on the NFC East Division rival Washington Redskins, who, by nature, struggle. This could be a win that gives the Eagles even more confidence moving forward, and allows them to continue to gel. They need to get it done.
