Jason Kelce responds to reports that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wants to permanently ban the ‘Tush Push’
Jason Kelce, the heart and soul of our Philadelphia Eagles, couldn't care less about a…
Another week, another win for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jalen Hurts improved to 20-1 in his last 21 starts with a 25-11 victory over Tampa Bay Monday night.
It was the best overall win for the Birds this season. They once again dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball, rushing for over 200 yards offensively, while holding Tampa’s ground attack to just 41 yards. Through the air, Hurts and Co. looked more polished than they had in previous weeks, racking up 277 passing yards, with AJ Brown and Dallas Goedert leading the way.
As we do every week, let’s take a look at PFF’s assessment of the Eagles performance this week.
The offensive line dominated Tampa’s front Monday night, and it all started with RT Lane Johnson. He earned an impressive 88.7 offensive grade in Week 3, along with an 85.8 pass blocking grade and 87.1 run blocking grade.
On the receiving end, AJ Brown earned his best marks of the season, posting an 85.2 overall grade and 84.2 receiving grade. On the night, he totaled nine receptions for 131 yards. Goedert came in right behind him, posting an overall grade of 78.8. It was refreshing seeing Goedert get in on the action; he racked up a season-best five catches for 41 yards.
Some honorable mentions for the Eagles offense include Landon Dickerson (76.5), Cam Jurgens (71.5), Jordan Mailata (70.2), and D’Andre Swift (69.7).
What else is there to say about Jalen Carter that hasn’t already been said? He’s been the best player on the Eagles defense through three games, and arguably the best defensive tackle in the entire league. It sounds like an exaggeration, but the PFF grades back it up.
Carter finished the night with a defensive grade of 94.9, the best grade he’s posted this season. As it stands, the former Bulldog is the highest-rated DT in the sport right now, sitting with a 93.2 defensive grade.
Behind Carter on the Week 3 report card we have Marlon Tuipulotu, who only logged eight snaps on the night. Nevertheless, he earned an impressive 86.2 grade for his efforts. At third we had another rookie, S Sydney Brown, who seems to be slowly making his way into the starting lineup. He finished the night with an 85.0 grade, the best single-game grade of his young career.
Outside of the top-three, we have Brandon Graham (78.4), Fletcher Cox (78.0), Reed Blankenship (72.2), and James Bradberry (71.7)
