The Philadelphia Eagles are finally on the board with a win! But what exactly did we learn about this team from beating the San Francisco 49ers? What’s sustainable moving forward?

There’s certainly reason to be encouraged about the defensive line. 13 sacks and 33 quarterback hits over the last two games is pretty impressive.

Offensively, though? Big issues still remain there. The Eagles still rank tied for dead last in yards per play. They only rank above both New Jersey teams in offensive points per game. They’re 31st in offensive DVOA.

Jimmy Kempski and I discuss the Eagles’ outlook and much more in this week’s BGN Radio podcast episode. You can [CLICK HERE TO LISTEN] or stream our conversation below:
