Recap

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES @ Cleveland Browns

The Eagles offense put on yet another pitiful performance and their defense was only able to stop the Browns for three quarters. The end result was a 22-17 loss and more turmoil in Philadelphia.

Carson Wentz was once again abysmal, throwing two interceptions and having at least two more dropped. Wentz’s miscues directly led to 9 Browns points: a pick six in the first quarter and a sack for a safety in the third quarter. The offense as a whole wasn’t much better, as a Miles Sanders fumble deep in Browns territory on the Eagles first drive set the tone. The offensive line was under siege, allowing three sacks to Olivier Vernon and four overall. 

The Eagles defense played well for the better part of three quarters, holding the Browns potent rushing attack in check. But after allowing a 54 yard run to Nick Chubb early in the fourth quarter, they too crumbled. Chubb finished with 114 yards on 20 carries on the day. 

Eagles Week 12 Opponent- Seahawks at home, Monday at 8:15

 

DALLAS COWBOYS @ Minnesota Vikings

A touchdown reception by Dalton Schultz with 1:37 left in the game was enough to give the Cowboys the lead and ultimately the win over the Vikings by a final of 31-28. 

Andy Dalton played well in his first game since 4 weeks due to a concussion and COVID-19. Dalton three for three touchdowns and 203 yards on the day, albeit with one interception. However, the biggest news for the Dallas offense was Ezekiel Elliott finally crossing the 100 yard mark for the first time this season. Elliott finished with 103 yards on 21 carries for a healthy 4.9 yards per carry. 

The Dallas defense was able to offset great performances from Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook by forcing two fumbles, one apiece for Cousins and Cook. Cousins threw for three touchdowns and 314 yards and completed 22 of 30 attempts. Cook rushed for 115 yards on 27 carries and added a score. Adam Theilen had a monster day in the loss, notching 123 on just 8 catches with two touchdowns. 

Cowboys Week 12 Opponent- Football Team at home, Thursday at 4:30



Cincinnati Bengals @ WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM

The Football Team was able to ride a good rushing performance to a rather ugly 20-9 win over the Bengals to stay on pace with the rest of the terrible NFC East.

Washington’s offense finished with a total 164 rushing yards on 34 attempts and one rushing touchdown. Antonio Gibson led the way with 94 yards on 16 carries and the score. The strong performance was able to offset a lackluster game from Alex Smith. Smith finished 17 of 25 for 166 yards with one touchdown and one interception. 

The Football Team defense also put in a good performance, forcing two turnovers and notching three sacks and five tackles for loss. They were able to hold the Bengals to just 70 rushing yards on 18 attempts in the absence of Joe Mixon. Rookie phenom quarterback Joe Burrow suffered a gruesome leg injury that resulted in a torn MCL and ACL that will end his season
