Week 12 PFF Grades
The Eagles' Week 12 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks was definitely a strange one. With a lot of speculation about the Eagles QB situation leading up to the game, and the defense holding strong in the early part of the game, it was another game to keep us interested until an inevitable letdown. Let's look at Monday's individual performances.
Best Grade: OT Jordan Mailata, 83.2
One of the biggest head-scratchers in the last few weeks was the Eagles starting Jason Peters at left tackle whenever he was healthy, even though Jordan Mailata outplayed him consistently. This week, Peters was moved to right guard and Mailata slid in at left tackle. This proves that they should've gone with this lineup to begin with. Mailata and Peters (71.8) were the two highest-graded offensive players.
Worst Grade: Alshon Jeffery, 45.9
In probably the worst trend in Eagles football this year, Alshon Jeffery has been the worst performing Eagle in each week since his return. Jeffery's presence on the field is taking important and meaningful reps from young talents like Travis Fulgham and John Hightower. This is probably the most immediate change the Eagles need to make to the game plan.
Best Grade: DE Brandon Graham, 90.7
At this point in the season, it's easy to say Brandon Graham is this team's best and most consistent defensive player. Graham has been one of the few rays of light in a dark season. On almost any given play you can see Brandon Graham all over the field. Most of the plays he made won't show up on the stat sheet but they show up on film where it matters.
Worst Grade: S Will Parks, 28.4
Well, in his last game as an Eagle, Will Parks turned in the worst defensive performance. With the second worst coverage grade (43.8), Parks ended his Eagles tenure with a whimper. Hopefully this means that K'Von Wallace will be able to develop.
Miles Sanders has a serious drop problem. He had a drop grade of 28 against the Seahawks and is leading the league in drops with eight. Not ideal for someone who should be a do-it-all back.
Carson Wentz averaged 8.4 yards per carry Monday night and 5.3 on the year. He is the second highest graded running QB (81) behind Kyler Murray. Wentz seems comfortable carrying the ball, so it would make sense to scheme more designed runs for him.
Richard Rodgers (88.9) is the second-highest graded TE this season.
