The Philadelphia Eagles' lack of strong execution finally came back to bite them in Week 6. The New York Jets pulled off a shocking 20-14 upset over Philadelphia on Sunday, as several contributors let the team down.
While backups being leaned upon certainly played a role in this ugly affair, there were some seriously sloppy plays on the Eagles' side that kept things closer than expected and paved the way for the loss. With that in mind, here were the unforced efforts that cost Philly in Week 6.
1. Dallas Goedert's Drop-Turned-INT
Unfortunately, the Eagles' offense was at the center of several plays that hurt the team on Sunday.
Tight end Dallas Goedert's slip-up in the second quarter seemed to foreshadow what would be a difficult day for Phily. The Eagles started Q2 with a nice drive, getting to the Jets' 46-yard line. On 3rd-and-8 in New York territory, Ben Johnson dialed up a screen to tight end Dallas Goedert.
While quarterback Jalen Hurts got the ball to his tight end, the pressure from the Jets' defense proved too much, as Goedert was unable to corral the ball. Even worse, it bounced off of his hands right to New York defender Quinnen Williams, who returned it to the Eagles' 45-yard line.
Goedert was extremely lucky this turnover didn't result in points, though. Despite being in enemy territory, Zach Wilson and the Jets offense were unable to do anything with this gift. Philadelphia's defense stopped them on fourth down, getting the ball right back.
