Eagles Heading to Playoffs, but can’t Escape Injuries in Win Over Giants
With a playoff spot on the line, the Philadelphia Eagles took care of business on Sunday, beating the New York Giants to capture a NFC Playoff spot. While they were hoping to avoid injuries to key players, unfortunately that wasn't the case.
Several players were banged up in Philadelphia's 34-17 win at the hands of the Giants.
Philadelphia entered the game with some key pieces sitting the game out due to injury, with Lane Johnson, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, and Jalen Mills inactive for the game.
During the game, Philadelphia lost even more key pieces, with a couple of injuries in this game, as running back Miles Sanders, and right guard Brandon Brooks both left the game with injuries and did not return.
Brooks is listed with a shoulder injury, while Sanders has an ankle injury.
Matt Pryor filled in at right guard for Brooks, while Boston Scott got the call in place of Sanders, becoming the hero. Scott rushed 19 times for 54 yards and three touchdowns, adding four catches for 84 yards on six targets.
So what happens next week is anyone's guess.
What if Agholor is healthy and ready to play, what if Sanders is out and Howard is ready for a bigger role, what if Ertz is back, what about the corners?
Well at least we have another week to figure it all out!
