Eagles coach Doug Pederson on call: 'I wanted to win'

It didn't work out in the Eagles' favor. Wentz's decision making appears to be staying questionable at best between forcing throws and failing to get rid of the ball when outside the pocket, while completing a pass behind the line of scrimmage looks to be the only pass play the offense runs with confidence.

When the Eagles moved up to select Wentz with the second overall pick in the 2016 draft, the original thought was to sit him for the entire season to learn from the sideline.

"It was a tough-going game, typical December football game", Flacco said. I felt that he was capable of doing it, but you never want to expose a rookie quarterback to that.

The decision made sense on several levels.

As the game went on, Mathews broke bigger gains. Philadelphia (5-9) has lost five consecutive games.

"You've got to be careful with judging it only on sacks, but sacks do affect the game", defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. Joe Flacco, who grew up rooting for the Eagles in nearby southern New Jersey, played college ball at Delaware. There has been no give-up from these Birds, who will now conclude their season with two home games, starting with a quick turnaround Thursday night against the New York Giants followed by the Dallas Cowboys on New Year's Day.

The Eagles playoff chances were only theoretical before the game for a number of reasons.

"I love my head coach", Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor said. "We have to be able to hand the ball off and get yardage out of it because then it is going to get the play-action game going a little bit more and make it that much better". "He found some holes we didn't anticipate him seeing", Pierce said.

Everything about the defense was wrong on that play, from the call to the execution of the technique. "C.J. got a tip and (cornerback) Jerraud (Powers) got the ball batted out".

Hideo Kojima's new Death Stranding trailer is just as weird as before
However, since he left Konami, we were eager to see the return of Hideo Kojima - creator of the Metal Gear franchise. At the end of the trailer, it was confirmed that Mads Mikkelsen will also appear in the game.

That's why you have this seeming anomaly where the Eagles are actually allowing the 12th-fewest yards per game in the National Football League but have allowed the most big plays.

The trouble was, it also gave up a few. The change of possession gave Baltimore a chance to whittle more precious time off the clock. "(Losing) wasn't because of a lack of effort". "We don't have to jam up the box to stop the run".

The Eagles, meanwhile, will be without Sproles and Smallwood, who have accounted for 48 percent of their total rushing yards this season (and 53.4 percent of their rushing yards when you limit it to just the RB position). "But like I said, I trust my teammates and my coaches and everything". Even if the guy doesn't tip it, we probably get the call.

She was also all over the resodding that took place after the December 10 Army-Navy game and how that might affect traction near the end zones.

"It's hard to say that I expected to throw this much, but it's kind of just the way things have gone, so by no means am I down about it or anything", Wentz said.

The Eagles' Ryan Mathews barreled over Baltimore's vaunted defense, running for 128 yards on 20 carries with a touchdown.

Eagles QB Carson Wentz talks about the final drive, the failed two-point try and another close loss. The Ertz block was wasted on one of Caleb Sturgis' four field goals.

Wentz did lead the Eagles on a potential game-tying drive that had them down one facing a two-point conversion.

Wentz has 498 pass attempts and he's on pace to break Donovan McNabb's team record of 571 attempts in a season.
