Davenport: Eagles Can Find Different Ways To Win
After the first five weeks of the NFL season, the Eagles leads the NFC in total offense with 397.8 yards per game and tied for sixth in the NFL with 137 points scored. During their three game winning streak the offense has leaned on the run game to fuel their offense; the Eagles rank fifth in the NFL in Rushing Yards with 694 and third in the NFL in Time Per Offensive Possession at 3:10 per drive.
Turron Davenport of USA Today Eagles Wire joined Mike Gill on Wednesday and discussed the Eagles offense in 2017:
“They’ve definitely shown that they can find different ways to win and one of the things with the Eagles they can be a Passing team, they can be a Running Team. Over the last three weeks they’ve shown that they will continue to try to run the football which is different from last year so now (opposing teams) have to worry about both things. Doug Pederson I think always understood but he’s applying it now that you Run the Ball to Pass and that makes it a lot easier for that young Quarterback. So it’s a complete Offense, it’s a problem for any defense to defend.”
