The Eagles looked good early against the Raiders last Sunday before they didn’t!

They drove 67 yards in eight plays on their opening drive and then got just four first downs the rest of the half.

Miles Sanders’ ankle injury on the second possession threw off the offensive rhythm.

They were down 23 in the fourth quarter of an eventual 33-22 loss to the Raiders.

It didn’t help the Eagles that Derek Carr only threw three incompletions all afternoon. Philadelphia is favored for the first time this year, opening -3 ahead of a road trip to Detroit.
