And both the coach and the QB said as much. However neither game was ever in doubt. If/when they give up a big lead, I'll be concerned. This is not something unique to the Eagles either.I'd be more concerned if these games were close and the defense had to bail them out to hold on for a win. But that's not what they were. The games were non-competitive in the 2nd half when they really need to control the clock and not do anything stupid. Neither game was ever in doubt.
The running game was not very good today. Fortunately Hurts' arm was.
At the same time in both games there was momentum changing plays the opponents offense didn't capitalize on or shot themselves in the foot. IRV Smith drop wide-open, blocked FG and INT all could've changed the game if Minny executed.
Today WAS had numerious chances in the RZ or opportunities, stop on 4th down etc. You play aggressive football till the end don't allow a team a hope to come back because a game can change in minutes. Cant played scared like the Eagles too the point they are running vanilla offense. Just means you take less chances on low % plays like the deep balls and such.
Better teams won't mess up on those opportunities.
