The Eagles have shown all year that they can beat opposing defenses in a number of different ways, but they have especially shown it the last two weeks, with QB Jalen Hurts and RB Miles Sanders both rushing for over 140 yards last week and Hurts notching nearly 400 yards through the air this week.
Offensive spotlight: All three of Hurts’ passing touchdowns came on passes thrown 20-plus yards downfield — two to A.J. Brown and one to DeVonta Smith. Brown joins Davante Adams as the only two players with two deep touchdown receptions in multiple games this season.
Tennessee has just three touchdown receptions on throws 20-plus yards downfield as a team this season.
With little room to run against a tough Titans run defense, that kind of performance is why Philadelphia traded for Brown.
Defensive spotlight: Philadelphia’s pass rush got to Ryan Tannehill on 13 of his 31 dropbacks, per PFF’s initial review. While a 42% pressure rate is comfortably above league average, Philadelphia’s ability to finish those pressures with sacks made it seem even higher. Josh Sweat, Haason Reddick, Javon Hargrave, Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham all got home for a sack. Reddick led the way in the pressure column with eight on initial review.
Rookie spotlight: Reed Blankenship finished PFF’s first-run analysis as one of Philadelphia’s highest-graded defenders. He was targeted four times as the primary coverage defender and allowed just two receptions for 10 yards, adding a pass breakup to his stat line. Nakobe Dean also played a season-high 15 snaps on defense for the Eagles — all in the second half — after recording just six defensive snaps all season before this week. Dean was the first contact defender on four plays and recorded a tackle for loss.
Offensive line spotlight: The left side of the Titans' offensive line had a rough go against a talented Philadelphia pass rush. Aaron Brewer and Dennis Daley combined to allow nine pressures. On the other side of the ball, Jordan Mailata and Landon Dickerson combined for a clean sheet on PFF’s initial review.
