The Philadelphia Eagles showed last week that there are other important issues for this team other than the quarterback position. New England is a team that is shorthanded in their receiving corps yet still crushed the Eagles last week by a 31-22 score on the Philadelphia home field. The Patriots piled up all their points in three quarters and at the half New England put up 24 points on the Eagles defense. One of the huge glaring weakness for Philadelphia was their run defense and their poor tackling technique. Philadelphia surrendered 248 rushing yards to New England on 31 runs from scrimmage. The Patriots were able to throw for 194 yards so the New England total offense was 444 yards gained against Philadelphia last week. Another huge issue for the Eagles defense is the fact they allowed three Patriots touchdowns in their four red zone appearances.
