The Philadelphia Eagles have not had success coming out of a bye week under Doug Pederson. They lost for the third straight year out of the bye and this 27-17 defeat essentially wiped out the cushion they had on top of the NFC East.
The Philadelphia Eagles found a way to sneak out of Lincoln Financial Field with a victory thanks to Carson Wentz and the offense. They were down 21-10 with 6 minutes left in the game and Wentz led the team on back-to-back drives to take the lead. His most noticeable throw was to Boston Scott down the sideline for the game-winning touchdown and let me tell you, this throw was ELITE. This was coming after a Jason Kelce facemask which brought the Eagles away from the goal-line and you could argue it was a blessing in disguise based off of their redzone numbers. Doug Pederson had so many head-scratching plays, I don't even know where to begin.
