Can The Eagles Offense Replicate What They Did Versus The Giants?
In Sunday's win over the New York Giants, the Eagles scored 34 points which marks the ninth time this season the team has scored at least 30 points in a game but is the first time they have done it without Carson Wentz at Quarterback. Nick Foles started his first game of the 2017 season, throwing for 237 Passing Yards and Four Touchdowns to go along with a 63.2 Completion Percentage. Can the Eagles replicate their offensive performance from their win in NFL Week 15 and continue to score so many points?
Turron Davenport of USA Today Eagles Wire joined The Sports Bash on Wednesday and discussed the Eagles offense following the win over the Giants:
“I think they can replicate it and do it even better; This is a team that didn’t run the ball as much as a lot of us thought they would and just imagine if they run the ball effectively how much you can work Play Action off that and how much you can show yourself to be more than just a one dimensional team….(Nick) Foles did an excellent job just staying on schedule, throwing to spots, and he even created a play showing a little bit of athleticism when he avoided (Jason Pierre-Paul) and he threw the ball downfield to Torrey Smith and got him to draw the Pass Interference call. So they did an outstanding job - Definitely when it hits the playoffs it’s going have to be the Running Game as the focus because when it’s cold out there and you keep pounding (with) guys like Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement, defenses are going to wear down and that’s going to lead to some postseason victories.”
