The Eagles finally got the home victory that has evaded them for weeks and the organization inched closer to the 7th and final playoff spot in the NFC.

Philadelphia rushed for over 240+ yards on the day and those weren’t the only numbers that defined offensive success for Nick Sirianni’s ballclub.

Here’s a breakdown of the dominant win by the numbers.

T.J. Edwards a monster

Against the Saints, Edwards was dominant despite struggling in pass protection.
10 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 INT, 2 pass deflections, and 1 fumble recovery.
