PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia Eagles had a dropped pass, a penalty and a sack on their first three plays.It only got worse for the NFL's top-ranked offense against a Jacksonville defense missing three starters.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
Jacksonville came into Philadelphia with a simple game plan. First, play ball control on offense by running the ball efficiently and do not let your quarterback have to win the game for you. Second, win the battle of field position by playing solid on special teams. Finally, play mistake-free on defense. Jacksonville ran inside and outside for big yardage against the Eagles. Specifically, they attacked Eagles linebacker Matt McCoy and defensive end Trent Cole (above).
The Jaguars' defense played great, holding the Eagles' high-powered offense to no touchdowns thanks to a philosophy of not giving up the big pass plays, which has been the lifeblood of the Eagles offense.
The Eagles haven't won since beating Dallas 38-24 in Terrell Owens' homecoming game Oct. 8. ... Second-year pro Sean Considine has replaced former Pro Bowl strong safety Michael Lewis in the starting lineup almost on a full-time basis. Considine recovered a fumble at the end of the first quarter. ... Jags WR Reggie Williams dropped passes on consecutive plays. ... The Eagles have trailed at halftime the last five games.
