Against the Seahawks, the Eagles started slow and punted on their first five drives. They didn’t get a first down until their final drive of the first half. The 15-play, 75-yard scoring drive cut the score to 14-6. It was the best sequence in a terrible night of football for the Eagles. Carson Wentz got sacked six times.
Through 11 games, Wentz has been sacked 46 times. (David Carr was sacked a record 76 times in 2002). Injuries to the offensive line, wide receivers who can’t get separation, and Pederson’s questionable play-calling makes it hard to tell to if Wentz has regressed or is simply not surrounded with any support.
During Week 12, the Green Bay Packers tightened their grip on a second straight NFC North title. Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes to lead the Packers to a 41-25 win over the Chicago Bears. The Pack have a three-game lead over the slumping Bears (5-6).
