USA TODAY Sports

Who were the best/worst graded Eagles players against the Giants?

Pro Football Focus is a site that grades NFL player performances. Let's take a look at what they had to say about the performances in Philadelphia's victory over the New York Giants.

PFF offers explanation on their grading system on their website. Read more about that here.

OFFENSE

Best

LeSean McCoy +2.3
Nick Foles +1.8
Michael Vick +1.4

Worst

Jason Kelce -8.9
Brent Celek -1.3
Riley Cooper -1.2

Analysis: Shady McCoy didn't have his best rushing day with only 46 yards (1 TD) on 20 attempts, but he also contributed with 6 receptions for 46 yards. Interestingly enough, each Eagles QB received a positive grade. Foles earned his grade through the air as he threw for nearly 200 yards and 2 TD. Vick earned a positive grade thanks to his 79 yard rushing performance

Center Jason Kelce was the worst graded Eagle. He was a plus in pass protection, but his run blocking was atrocious. Celek also received a negative grade due to his run blocking. Cooper's snap counts have been dropping each week, and it's no surprise why. Riley finished with 0 catches after only being targeted once in 62 snaps.

DEFENSE

Best

Vinny Curry +1.8
Connor Barwin +1.6
Nate Allen +1.1

Worst

Cary Williams -2.0
Earl Wolff -2.0

Analysis: Vinny Curry was the Eagles best grader defender... but only played 12 snaps. He had 1 QB hit and 1 QB hurry in that limited playing time. Barwin received a positive grade in run defense and finished with 5 QB hurries, 1 batted pass, 1 tackle, and 1 stop. Nate Allen was solid in coverage and as a run defender.

Cary Williams was brutal in pass coverage: targeted 14 times, allowing 10 receptions for 107 yards. On the positive side, he contributed with 8 tackles and 1 INT. Rookie safety Earl Wolff struggled again in coverage (6 targets, 4 receptions, 52 yards) but made 3 tackles.
