Safeties shine as offense falters: Grading the Eagles loss to Falcons

The Eagles were less than an inch short of the mark on Sunday night, falling to Atlanta in a 24-20 loss by the smallest of margins. It was a game riddled with setbacks and injuries, but how did the team look? It’s time to get out your whiteboards and grade last night’s loss.


It was a tale of two halves for Carson Wentz once again, who started out shaky and uncertain. After enduring a couple of hits, that shakiness suddenly turned into injury concern. Wentz looked desperate to get the ball out and with release valves being cut off one-by-one, the mechanics slipped into what we came to expect last year.
