The Eagles needed a win to keep up in the division after the Lions failed to come back for a win over the Cowboys.
At 5-4, the Eagles have lost to some teams that are not so great and won against some that are great. They entered this game hoping that they could add to the ladder.
Instead, the offense went out there and was flat out embarrassing. The Dolphins would be embarrassed to play like this and, frankly, there should be guys returning money and retiring – they should feel that awful about that “performance”.
Ertz was about the only player on the field that didn’t commit some sort of error to cost the Eagles, so he wins by default. He also managed 37 yards, more than the entire offense managed in the third quarter.
Darby made quite a few pass breakups in the second half of this game and was solid in both coverage and against the run. Had he played like that to start the season, the Eagles probably have a better record than they do now.
