2. DeVonta Smith's Drops
Goedert wasn't the only one to struggle with a case of the drops on Sunday. In fact, wide receiver DeVonta Smith had two big misses on catchable balls versus New York.
The first came just a few plays before Goedert's mishap, actually. Smith got open on a slant right past the 50-yard line, and Hurts hit him right in stride. Yet, the ball went right off of the Alabama product's hands, and it mercifully avoided being picked off despite Jets defenders being right in the area.
Smith's troubles continued out of halftime. The Eagles had some nice momentum building on their first drive to begin the third quarter, and Smith got himself open again for a potentially huge gain. Instead, he failed to come up with the ball again.
That drop absolutely killed the momentum. Philadelphia then gave up a sack on the very next play, and punted right after that.
In a game that turned out to be so close, failing to get a score here when the team was driving hurts a ton. A touchdown on that drive would've put the Eagles comfortably ahead 21-9, easing some of the pressure off of the defense. Instead, the lead remained razor-thin as the offense continued to get in its own way.
