The Philadelphia Eagles week 6 game of the 2017 NFL season is now in the books with the Birds winning 28-23. They are now 5-1 on the season and remain atop of the NFC East division (and the NFC itself) after beating the Carolina Panthers on the road and on Thursday Night Football! While the Eagles lost the time of possession this game, they still generated 5.2 yards per play to the Panthers 3.9 yards per play. Overall, the Eagles were dominant on defense and the d-line played with incredible purpose helping to force three Cam Newton interceptions. Carson Wentz had a very nice game throwing three touchdowns – two to his tight end, Zach Ertz. Once again, he’s proving that he is a franchise quarterback and a player that can take the Eagles to the next level. It was a well-coached game by both Doug Peterson and Jim Schwartz. We gave our analysis and takeaways from the game. We also got into the team stats, box score and graded the positions and coaches.
