Doug Pederson: The way we played today is on me – ProFootballTalk
The Eagles came back from their bye week with gamers returning from injury and a chance to put some more distance in between themselves and the rest of the NFC East, however they could not make that take place.
A dull performance throughout the board sent them to a 27-17 loss to the Giants. The group failed to transform a 3rd down, committed 11 penalties and got shut out after cutting the Giants cause four points in the 3rd quarter.
In his postgame interview, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said to put the blame for the loss on his shoulders.
” I felt like the guys were prepared to go, I’m clearly disappointed, that’s on me the way we played today,” Pederson said, through Marc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Rather honestly, I felt the energy was excellent, it’s difficult obviously without the fans, however that is both teams to handle it.”
Some would be inclined to point a finger at quarterback Carson Wentz, who was 21-of-37 for 208 lawns while getting sacked three times, however there’s a lot of blame to walk around after such a dismal performance. Pederson said the team seethes and upset about how Sunday went and they’ll attempt to funnel that toward a much better trip against the Browns next weekend.
