The Eagles are starting to get into a rhythm with better play in recent weeks. They are currently sitting at the top of the NFC East and will look to stay there for the rest of the season. With that being said, we are going to look at some former Eagles players that are still in the NFL and how they performed for their teams in Week 7.
Foles did not play well this week as the Chicago Bears lost to the Los Angeles Rams 24-10 on Monday Night Football. The Bears are now 5-2, which seems great, but the Bears offense has been struggling. This week Foles was 28/40 for 261 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions. The Rams defense shut down the Bears offense and did not give up an offensive touchdown the entire game. The Bears' only touchdown was on a Robert Woods fumble that was returned for a touchdown by their defense. This offense needs to figure something out if they want to stay in the playoff hunt, they can’t just rely on their defense anymore. If Foles wants to lead Chicago to wins, then he needs to be able to put some points on the board, which doesn't seem to be a strong suit in Bears Land.
The name Agholor usually brings up bad memories for Eagles fans. However, Agholor has been doing his best to change his image based on his previous missteps. Even though the Las Vegas Raiders lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past Sunday, Agholor played very well. He caught five passes on nine targets for 107 yards and a touchdown. He continues to be a deep ball threat the Raiders are not afraid to use. Agholor continues to impress in Las Vegas and be on the lookout for him to continue having big games with his confidence the highest its ever been.
The New York Giants played the Eagles this past Thursday, which meant Golden Tate had the opportunity to stick it to his former team. Tate was not used much on offense, but he made a difference when he was the target. He was only targeted twice this week, but one of his targets was a 39-yard touchdown reception. The one-time Eagle continues to show that he isn’t the top option in the Giants passing game, but when he is targeted he is able to help his team.
