Another week, another disaster for the Philadelphia Eagles. What was once a 17-10 Eagles lead turned into a 38-23 rout at the hands of the hated Dallas Cowboys. This team cannot do anything right. The offense gave up two defensive touchdowns, the defense couldn’t get off the field on third down, and the special teams gave up a punt return and missed an extra point. There are two things we can take away from this game. 1) This team stinks 2) Andy Reid will be gone after this season. The Eagles are now 3-6 on the season. Offense: Michael Vick left the game in the second quarter with a concussion which opened the door for rookie quarterback Nick Foles. Foles, who seems to be the future of this Eagles team, did some good and bad things. The good was a 44 yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin. The bad was a pick six and a fumble recovered for a touchdown. This was just a small sample, so it will be interesting to see how he responds if he practices with the starters and starts the game against the Redskins next week. He also had no help from the offensive line. Speaking of the offensive line, it was absolutely terrible today. Demetress Bell and King Dunlap are possibly the worst two starting Rookie quarterback Nick Foles entered the game late in the first half after Michael Vick suffered a concussion. offensive tackles in the NFL. Penalties by those two players called back several big plays for the Eagles, which is a huge momentum killer. There are a lot of people who say that Nick Foles should start the rest of the season; but how can you throw a rookie into this mess? He will get absolutely killed with this offensive line in front of him. Maybe the most telling stat is that the Eagles went 1-10 on third down. Grade: D Defense: First of all, the defense only gave up 17 points today. The Cowboys scored two touchdowns on defense and one on special teams. However, Tony Romo completed 19 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns. The Cowboys stayed balanced with 26 pass attempts and 25 run attempts. They ran the ball for 101 yards and kept the Eagles off balance the whole game. The Todd Bowles experiment seems to be a bust. The defense, especially in the secondary, has gotten progressively worse over the past three weeks. Nnamdi Asomugha has not lived up to the hype since he arrived here from Oakland two years ago. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has shown flashes of brilliance, but has been a disappointment for the most part. Grade: D Stats: Nick Foles: 22/32, 219 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, 85.3 quarterback rating. LeSean McCoy: 16 attempts, 82 yards, 4 receptions, 20 yards Jeremy Maclin: 8 receptions, 93 yards, 1 touchdown Tony Romo: 19/26, 209 yards, 2 touchdowns, 122.1 quarterback rating Felix Jones: 16 attempts, 71 yards, 3 receptions, 22 yards, 1 touchdown Jason Witten: 8 receptions, 47 yards Dez Bryant: 3 receptions, 87 yards, 1 touchdown
