3. D'Andre Swift's Fumble

We've already discussed a few plays that could've caused some damage. D'Andre Swift's fumble in Q2 actually did end up making an impact on the scoreboard, though.

A big roughing the passer penalty gave Philadelphia's drive a boost near the end of the second quarter, putting the team on the verge of entering opposing territory. The Eagles then dialed up Swift's number on a day where he had some success as a receiver, but this time he let them down.

Swift's lazy ball security allowed the Jets' C.J. Mosely to simply punch the ball out, which his team recovered. That set up New York just eight yards from midfield, and Wilson and co. eventually got a field goal right as time expired to make the score 14-9 heading into halftime.

Not only did this end yet another Philly drive that showed a ton of promise, but it gave the Jets an opportunity to get an unexpected score, and that's exactly what happened. There's simply no excuse to be this lax with the ball as one of the team's best playmakers.
