Eagles vs. Cardinals week 5 Game time TV Radio schedule and more
The four teams Philadelphia has defeated this season have combined for just five wins through the first five weeks.But Pederson, Wentz and the rest of the Eagles believe they are a much better team than a year ago. Marcus Johnson's 6-yard catch was the first of his career and part of a 9-for-14 third-down conversion day for the Eagles. He is the man. Unfortunately major injuries are becoming a staple of this season's team.
The report aligns with what was suggested Friday following the Eagles' final practice of the week, which Smallwood sat out. Watkins missed two games with a hamstring problem suffered against the Chiefs, but he practiced all week for the Cardinals. "They're good at stopping the run, they're good at everything", Blount said. Being down by three touchdowns, however, with three quarters left has proved to be almost impossible to come back from.
To cap it off, Agholor stopped at the 1-yard line and fell backward into the end zone to complete a career-long 72-yard reception to give the 4-1 Eagles a 31-7 advantage in the third quarter. In a first quarter punt return Barner scampered for 76-yards to set up Philly's second score. Wentz hit Smith for a 59-yard strike to blow the game wide open early.
"It doesn't happen if they don't work at it", Pederson said of the big plays the Eagles showed in the game.
Jumping out to a 21-0 first quarter lead, the game was already over. How impressive is that? That will help. But it would still be hard to replace a Pro Bowl-caliber right tackle, especially against the 4-1 Panthers' edge rushers.
"We were in position, we knew they were going to stretch the field, and we thought we could come up with some, but they really did a good job of making sure that even when we had those opportunities, they're punching the ball out". J.J. Nelson had the best carry of the game, gaining 14 on a 14-yard run. It's still early, but Wentz's performance has earned him a ideal 158.3 passer rating through one quarter. With the pace he's on, it's not out of the realm of possibility Wentz can throw 30-plus touchdowns this season.
On the opening drive, Wentz tossed a 12 yard pass to Ertz on third-and-11 and a 16-yard pass to Jeffery on another third-and-11. Zach Ertz paced the Eagles with six receptions.
And yet, things can unravel fast.
Ask around the Philadelphia Eagles locker room, and you might hear as much about the team's family atmosphere as its sits 4-1 atop the NFC East. And on the fifth Sunday of the 2017 season, the Philadelphia Eagles sent a message to the rest of the league. "I was ducking my head and then I saw the ball, so I turned up another gear to go track it. Carson just gave me a great opportunity and threw such a attractive ball".
