Some follow-up notes from Week 6:

  • Which is more true: The Eagles are back, or the Giants are awful? Tough call, really, but the best thing a Philly fan can take away from Thursday night is this: The Birds dominated, and even if the G-Men are atrocious, that’s what good teams are supposed to do — dominate. Even better: The Eagles could’ve been better, and they still dropped 34 and made an offense featuring Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. look incompetent when it needed to step up the most (third downs, red zone).
  • Everyone loves to rat on Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby these days, and often deservedly so. But both guys were solid — probably even more than solid — on Thursday. Mills did surrender one deep pass, but where and when else did you see him out of position? His red-zone play vs. Beckham was nice. And Darby was all over the ball early on, keeping his side of the field clean.
  • And now? The Eagles get extra rest! It didn’t do much for them the last time around (Week 2 vs. the Buccaneers), but this is different. Carson Wentz is around, the offensive line could use the time to heal, and the team finally showed it can fire on all cylinders. An important stretch awaits, and no matter how you slice it, Philly did what it needed to on Thursday night.
