If Quez Watkins had caught this Jalen Hurts dime, the Eagles would’ve been inside the 10 with a chance to retake a 10-point lead. Instead, they settled for a 33-yard field goal, making things 27-21.

“I should’ve used late hands and I didn’t and it caused me to have a drop with a DB on my back,” Watkins reporters as he was cleaning out his locker at the Linc.

Maybe for the last time.

The addition of A.J. Brown made Watkins the No. 3 receiver, and he came up with only with 33 receptions and just 354 yards.

“I know I took a step back from last year to this year, but it was a very humbling season and I’m looking forward to getting back to work,” Watkins said.

“I didn’t play my best football all year.”

Watkins said he had suffered a shoulder sprain during the Eagles’ Week 13 win over the Titans in early December.

“I kind of grasped it well in the beginning of the season. But after the Tennessee game, I suffered a grade-2 sprain I’ve been playing on the last six to eight weeks. And, honestly, it deteriorated my confidence. I wasn’t able to play to my best ability.”

“Honestly… Trying to play through it, I knew I needed to be stronger on the left side, trying to really protect my left side,” Watkins said.

“After the Tennessee game, after the Giants game, after the Chicago game, I was kind of protecting it of some sort and in that instance, I should’ve just played ball and not worried about it.”
