In 2021, the talk centered around Philadelphia’s inability to take the ball away from the opposing offense and Jonathan Gannon’s struggle with getting pressure on the opposition’s quarterback.

This season the Eagles lead the NFL in sacks, takeaways, and opponent’s three and outs.

Kyler Murray in rare company


Cardinals Vs Eagles

The Cardinals quarterback has 15 games in which he has recorded both a passing & rushing touchdown in the same contest since 2019, 2nd-most in NFL.

In his last meeting against Jalen Hurts and the Eagles, Murray passed for 406 yards
& he had four touchdowns (3 passes, one rush) vs. one interception with a 127.8 rating.

Maquise Brown consistent

Hollywood exited the Ravens via trade because he wanted to be featured more in the passing game.

So far, through five games in Arizona, Brown will look to record his fourth straight game with 6+ catches & 65+ receiving yards.
