Let's take a look at what they had to say about Eagles players from Philadelphia's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. PFF offers explanation on their grading system on their website. Read more about that here.

OFFENSE

Best

Brent Celek +5.0
Lane Johnson +3.7
Jason Kelce +1.9
Dennis Kelly +1.6
Josh Huff +1.2

Analysis:

Celek finished with seven receptions for 79 yards. Celek has been surprisingly productive recently. After combining for 71 yards on seven receptions in the first eight games, the 30-year-old veteran has 213 yards on 14 receptions over the past two weeks.

Celek, Johnson, and Kelly earned positive run blocking grades. Johnson and Kelce graded out well in pass protection.

Huff scored a 39-yard touchdown his first catch of the day. Then the Eagles didn't even target him for the rest of the game. Huff played a total of 17 snaps, which is 14 less than both Miles Austin and Riley Cooper.

Kenjon Barner -2.4
Mark Sanchez -2.2
DeMarco Murray -2.0
Miles Austin -1.6
Nelson Agholor -1.2
Jordan Matthews -1.2

Analysis:

Barbre stunk in pass protection. He allowed five hurries.

Barner dropped a pass.

Sanchez threw three interceptions. He also overthrew some wide open targets at times. He struggled with both accuracy and decision making.

Austin played 31 snaps, got targeted once, and promptly dropped the pass.

Agholor was targeted four times. He had three receptions for 11 yards.

The Eagles are not good at offense.

DEFENSE

Best

Fletcher Cox +4.1

Connor Barwin +2.5
Vinny Curry +1.2

Analysis:

Even when the Eagles are bad, Cox is still good. He made four tackles and had a hit on Jameis Winston.

Kendricks earned a negative coverage grade but he earned positive ratings as a pass rusher and run defender.

Barwin finished with four tackles, two quarterback hits, and two batted passes.

Curry generated two hurries on only 12 snaps played.

Worst

Taylor Hart -3.1
DeMeco Ryans -2.0
