The Eagles fly easy and the Lions continue to win in 2021

By Luis Díaz-Trujillo (@eledetepe)

With very little effort, the Philadelphia Eagles of HC Nick Sirianni, literally walked around the field, as they accumulated 236 yards on the ground and took care of what was necessary to defeat the Detroit Lions without problems by a score of 44- 6 in week 8 of the 2021 NFL season.

In the absence of RB Miles Sanders due to injury, the Eagles opted to run the ball by committee, with old acquaintances such as Boston Scott (60 yards and 2 TDs) and Jordan Howard (57 yards and 2 TDs), as well as QB Jalen himself. Hurts, who had a low-key performance, rushing for 71 yards and passing for just 103, but the most important thing is that he executed the game plan correctly and made no mistakes. He even gave substitute QB Gardner Minshew II a chance to play in the fourth quarter.

The Philadelphia defense captured QB Jared Goff six times to score the third victory of the season, although, during the game, they were not really demanded by the Detroit offense, which could barely break zero in the middle of the last fourth, but when the score was already unattainable.

The Lions seem to have run out of fuel with their fight at times with the Rams last week. It is known that HC Dan Campbell plays very far “from the book”, but even so, his team does not show itself as a complete product, they have little talent and precisely in this match, they were not able to resist.

Detroit suffered from the last minute absence of RB Jamaal Williams, reloading a large percentage of the offense on RB D’Andre Swift, who could not find room to run consistently, as well as losing a ball that was returned for a score to keep increasing. the score in the third quarter.

The Eagles are apparently starting to straighten out, but this beating of the league’s worst-record team shouldn’t be a reliable parameter. Is the fire going a little bit in Nick Sirianni’s chair?

The Lions rest next week, but when they return, the schedule is not at all favorable. Are they heading towards 0-17 in an irremediable way? Do not forget to leave your comment in this note or on our social networks.
