Bad Play Rammed down our throats!!!

The Eagles were blown out by the Los Angles Rams on Sunday 39-17. Turnovers plagued the Eagles again on Sunday at the Link. Miles Sanders committed the first mistake of the game on the third play from scrimmage which led to the Rams first score and it went all down hill from there. The Eagles defense didn't have an answer for Jared Goff and the Rams offense as they cut through the Eagles D racking up 30 first downs and 449 total yards. Goff made it look easy completing 20 for 27 passes for 267 yards, 3 TD's and a passer rating of 142.1. The linebackers were exposed several times and couldn't cover Rams receivers and had a difficulty shedding blocks. The secondary was horrible missing assignments and tackles and lacked the aggressiveness throughout the game. The Eagles QB on the other hand had another bad game. Wentz was inconsistent, under and overthrowing receivers and making bad decisions throughout the game. Stats don't lie, Wentz went 26 for 43 for 242 yards, zero touchdowns, two interceptions and a passer rating of 56.5, That's right 56.5 for our franchise QB who just signed a four year $128 million dollar contract extension in June 2019. When you turn the ball over in the NFL don't expect to win. Teams that turn the ball over three times or more only win 18% of the time. Once again the run/pass ratio was lopsided, 43 passing attempts to 26 rushing attempts. There was a silver lining to this game. The Eagles offensive line looked much better with the return of Lane Johnson. Rams dominating defensive end Aaron Donald was not a factor in the game and didn't record a tackle or a sack. The Eagles are now 0-2 to start the season. In the NFL since 1999 only 13% of 0-2 teams make the playoffs. Carson Wentz needs to play much better and protect the Football. Doug Pederson needs to balance his attack and put Wentz in better situations if the Eagles want to salvage their season. Its a theme that we are getting used to hearing!!
