Jalen Hurts made three turnover-worthy plays and no big-time throws, but he did have two red-zone touchdown tosses and an 81.5% adjusted completion percentage to propel the team to victory. He is set to earn a sub-60.0 passing grade for the game.
Miles Sanders was on pace for a big rushing day before exiting due to injury in the second half. He forced one missed tackle on eight attempts while crossing the first-down marker three times.
Wide Receiver/Tight End
DeVonta Smith continued his solid rookie season with another productive outing. He caught all but one of his six targets, and three went for first downs while another resulted in a touchdown. The Alabama alumnus is set to finish with a 75.0-plus receiving grade.
Tight end Dallas Goedert caught two of his four targets for only 28 yards, and he also dropped a pass.
The Eagles offensive line allowed only seven pressures, which buoyed the unit's 83.6 pass-blocking grade on first review. Lane Johnson surrendered no pressure on 31 pass-blocking snaps.
Philadelphia generated 16 pressures, including 13 hurries and two sacks. Josh Sweat tallied four on his own — three hurries and a sack — to complete a 90.8 pass-rush grade on first review.
T.J. Edwards made three stops, a tackle for loss and four total tackles in run defense. He had six stops overall, which should lead to an 85.0-plus grade.
Targeted four times through the air, Darius Slay allowed just one catch for negative four yards. A dropped interception was his only lowlight on the afternoon, as the Pro Bowl corner finished with an 81.3 coverage grade on first review.
Jake Fromm started his first NFL game, and it wasn't a memorable one. He didn’t surpass 30 passing yards passing and finished with a turnover-worthy play to complete a 39.7 passing grade on first review. Mike Glennon entered in relief, and while he did throw for a touchdown, his passing grade on the afternoon wasn’t much better (43.7, pending review).
Saquon Barkley continued his tumultuous 2021 campaign with another underwhelming ground performance. He managed only one rushing first down and just 2.1 yards per carry from his 15 carries. Barkley also forced a missed tackle.
Wide Receiver/Tight End
Rookie Kadarius Toney had just 28 yards on four catches but made two first-down grabs. Fifteen of those yards came after the catch.
Tight end Evan Engram snagged four of his five targets for just 17 yards and a late-game score.
The Giants' offensive line surrendered 17 pressures, including two sacks. Andrew Thomas was the lone bright spot for the unit, as he allowed just two pressures on 53 pass-blocking snaps.

Tae Crowder finished with a stop and three tackles in an underwhelming run-defense performance. He also missed a tackle.
James Bradberry gave up three grabs for 53 yards and a first down but still was able to finish with a pending 75.2 coverage grade.
