Dud -- Eagles tight ends

You can’t replace Dallas Goedert, but Philadelphia will have to figure out the best way to scheme the tight ends open moving forward.

Jack Stoll caught the only pass for the tight end group, and all three ended up with costly penalties in the win. Stoll was hit with a false start on a punt, Grant Calcaterra with a hold, and Tyree Jackson with offensive pass interference.

The Eagles’ offense has become stagnant and inefficient, which falls on Steichen as the play caller.

Philadelphia employed heavy tight-end sets despite missing the dynamic Dallas Goedert. Steichen still isn’t featuring Miles Sanders enough and the Eagles have to get more innovative on third downs.
