The Philadelphia Eagles are not out to a great start in 2019, dropping to a 1-2 record with their Sunday loss to the Detrit Lions at home.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, footage from that game showed the team should be quite embarrassed when they realized they allowed a huge play in that game by having just 10 players on the field.
They were missing a right defensive end and Lions QB Matthew Stafford not only noticed it, but he exploited it as the Lions ran a reverse with J.D. McKissic going 44 yards and deep into Eagles territory.
That drive would lead to a field goal and as you noticed, the Eagles lost by three points.
“I’m really supposed to seal the end on that play,” Stafford said after the game. “We only had 10 guys (to face) because there was no end over there, so I just kept moving and found the next guy. I’m sure he’s been hit a lot harder than that, but I at least tried to get in the way.”
What a mess the Eagles are turning out to be in 2019.
