With the Dolphins losing last week, the Eagles are now just one of two teams undefeated through this point in the season. Quarterback Jalen Hurts will remind you that winning is all the matters, and that it’s always been the main thing.
Still, the team is four games in with quite a list of things to clean up. The penalties have been a problem, and have negated some big plays. Jason Kelce said this week that the NFL warned the Eagles that Landon Dickerson had been lining up in the neutral zone during QB sneaks — but regarding the penalty last Sunday, Kelce claims they mistakenly were looking at his other hand on the call.
It’s incredible the kind of offensive production Philly is having right now, especially considering what’s been left on the field. Sirianni took responsibility for their struggles in the red zone, saying the coaches need to put players in better positions. The head coach is looking to get their success rate in that area back to what they were doing last year.
It’ll be a tough day for the Eagles against the Aaron Donald-led defense, and with Cam Jurgens out and Sua Opeta primed to take his spot, the offensive line is going to have to pull off some impressive maneuvering — something they’re more than capable of doing. But, it won’t be easy.
Philly’s secondary will also have a tough task stopping rookie standout Puka Nacua and Tute Atwell, with DC Sean Desai noting they do a good job of creating matchups off motions. Sirianni spoke during the week about his respect for Rams’ head coach Sean McVay and his offensive mind, so they are expecting a challenging day.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
