Philly lose a thriller vs Falcons. Wentz made some crazy plays, but that O-Line is gonna get him killed!
the OL is fine, Wentz had to hold the ball much longer than he wanted because we lost Goedert, Jackson and Jeffery within minutes of starting the game, and then went with spells without Agholar and then Clement after HT when he was knocked out of the game. Wentz himself ended up in the tent, JP got hurt again. Basically anyone who can make a play got hurt. And he throws the game winning touchdown is Agholar makes a catch that hits him perfectly in stride with the safety already beaten.
Brutal game for philly, the injuries are already begining to mount badly. We're not going to be able to compete if we keep losing guys like we have in the opening 2 games. Even on d, Timmy Jerrigan carted off, Cox and Graham arent 100%, Sidney Jones went into the tent... just remarkable that we were still in that game given how poorly we played and how many injuries we had.
As an aside, i know it's the rules and the rules are designed to protect Carson Wentz, but i'll be **** if i know how a QB diving for the endzone is "giving himself up"... if that two point holds, at the death there we're driving for a game winning FG. Frustrating.
The first half wasnt remotely good enough though, and then to come out and immediately turn it over on the kick off... you're just not going to win NFL games on the road when your turn it over 3 times
