Eagles Lose to the Packers: 10 Things We Learned - BGN
The Eagles had gone 12 straight games without losing by more than five points heading into Lambeau. Even when they lost, they usually had something to hang their hats on. In Philadelphia's losses to the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals, the team could say that they were only a few play(s) away from winning. This wasn't the case in Green Bay. The Eagles failed in all phases. It's impossible to blame the loss on one specific area/player. There's plenty of blame to be shared.

Dominated - Iggles Blitz
The Eagles simply got whipped on Sunday. Green Bay scored on offense, defense and STs. They controlled the LOS. They flat out dominated the Eagles and won 53-20. Please don’t start ripping the team for playing with no heart or Chip Kelly not having the team ready to play. Those are generic criticisms sports fans use over and over without any real meaning or thought behind them. Green Bay won this game because of execution and talent, not effort. Aaron Rodgers made some sensational throws. Jordy Nelson made some impressive catches. Randall Cobb was able to elude tacklers after the catch on multiple plays. Their blockers did a great job of engaging defenders and sustaining blocks.

‘I Don’t Think They’re A Better Team’ - Birds 24/7
A bad day at the office, or a sign of inferiority? The answer to that question is an important one after the Eagles were steamrolled by the Packers 53-20 in Lambeau Field. A couple key members of the offense made it clear where they come down on the issue. "I don’t think they’re a better team than us," LeSean McCoy said. "They were today, and that’s all that matters. There’s no reason to talk about it. They were a better team today. I think overall we’re a good team, we really are, we just didn’t play like it today."

Eagles fighting a losing battle with Sanchez - Inquirer
Mark Sanchez's history hangs over his head like an anvil, and since he joined the Eagles, the thread that holds it there never has looked as thin as it did Sunday. This is not about blaming Sanchez for the Eagles' humiliation at Lambeau Field, for a 53-20 loss that represented perhaps the lowest moment of Chip Kelly's 26-game tenure as head coach.

A bad day for Davis and his defense - Inquirer
This one is on Bill Davis. Aaron Rodgers is probably the best quarterback in the NFL right now. The Packers have a remarkable home-field advantage at Lambeau Field. The Eagles offense and special teams did Davis' defense no favors. And the coordinator simply doesn't have talent in the secondary like the Dolphins and Lions - teams that slowed Rodgers and competed with Green Bay by playing mostly man-to-man defense with a single high safety.

10 observations from Eagles-Packers - CSN Philly
Just like 52-20 in Denver last September, you take this one and throw it out and move on. The Eagles aren’t as good as they looked in last week’s 45-21 win over a disinterested Panthers team, and they’re not as bad as they looked Sunday in Green Bay. The Packers are demolishing everybody at home these days. They’ve outscored their five opponents at Lambeau by an average of 44-17 this year, so this wasn’t too far off that. If you’re the Eagles, all you can do is forget about it. Watch the film and learn from it, but just throw it out after Monday. Aaron Rodgers is as hot as any quarterback has ever been. He just isn’t missing. He hasn’t thrown an interception at Lambeau in two years. The Eagles bounced back last year after that humiliating loss in Denver, winning nine of their next 12, and you just have to hope this year’s team is just as resilient. Beat the Titans Sunday at home and you’re 8-3 going into Dallas on Thanksgiving. This is still a good football team with a lot to play for. Last year, they went 9-3 after that Denver blowout. They can’t hang their heads, and I don’t think they will.

The Eagles failed to convert their first four third-down conversions and were just 1 for 6 in the first half. The Packers were 5 for 6 in the first half.

All Goes Wrong In Road Defeat - PE.com
GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Eagles had been on the right side of these kind of games so many times in the last year that, well, maybe we forgot how a game can turn in such a wrong direction as quickly as it did for Philadelphia on Sunday in a 53-20 loss at Lambeau Field to the Green Bay Packers ...

In a home loss to Tampa Bay, Washington fans chanted for backup quarterback Colt McCoy to replace RG3. It's going to be a long November in Washington.
