Huge win for the Birds! Closer than it should’ve been but we really stepped up in clutch time. Despite Wentz’ fumbling troubles he still put together a solid outing with 3 touchdowns, including a bullet through the WSH secondary to Sanders and a game winning lob to Greg Ward. Sanders had a tremendous showing, he was everywhere on the field and really showed the potential he has in the coming years as a versatile back. Zach Ertz & Greg Ward led the receiving game, and for me, this game definitely proved that Ward deserves a roster spot next year. Boston Scott was present in the passing game as well, and Dallas Goedert’s insane one handed catch was one of the plays of the game. Our secondary still looked poor, we’re definitely gonna have to address that in the offseason. ———————————————————————————
With the Eagles defeating the Redskins, we now approach our biggest matchup of the season in week 16 against the Cowboys. If we win both our games left this season, we’ll officially clinch the NFC East and host a playoff game. Although this season has been far from perfect, anything can happen in the playoffs, we just need to get there first.
