Report card: Eagles top Patriots, 25-20 in Week 1

Nick Sirianni’s team is undefeated and set to host a vulnerable Vikings team in week two after defeating the Patriots in Week 1.

Check out Eagles Wire’s Week 1 report card for the Philadelphia Eagles following the team’s 25-20 win over New England:


It was a solid performance from quarterback Jalen Hurts, who went 22 of 33 passing, for 170 yards, 1 TD; Hurts also logged 9 rushing attempts, for 37 yards, and 1 lost fumble.

The All-Pro gets the B grade because Sunday was essentially his preseason game.


New offensive coordinator Brian Johnson gave D’Andre Swift 18 total snaps and one touch during Sunday’s win.

Kenneth Gainwell led the Eagles rushing attack with 54-yards on 14-carries.


The Eagles’ offense struggled in Week 1 but it wasn’t from a lack of effort on the pass catchers.

A.J. Brown had 79 yards receiving, while DeVonta Smith scored a touchdown and Quez Watkins caught both of his targets for 17 yards.


We can credit Bill Belichick for taking away Dallas Goedert, who didn’t get his first target until late in the fourth quarter.


There is a standard in Philadelphia and Jeff Stoutland’s group didn’t live up to the hype in Week 1.

Jalen Hurts was sacked three times and saw a ton of pressure, while running game produced just 97 rushing yards and a 3.9 yards per carry average.


The Eagles sacked Mac Jones with Jalen Carter and Jordan Davis playing a role in both.

Davis also caused a fumble, while Fletcher Cox flashed dominance.


Nakobe Dean led this unit with seven tackles, and he’ll now miss a month with a foot injury, while Zach Cunningham struggled to make plays in space.


Darius Slay notched a pick-6, the longest of his carrer, while James Bradberry gave up a touchdown and then suffered a concussions.

Josh Jobe played well in relief.


Reed Blankenship logged 12 tackles, but Eagles safeties were liabilities in the passing game late in the second half.
