Week 16 PFF Grades
In the last meaningful game of the season, the Eagles laid an egg against the Cowboys. Their second-round rookie quarterback looked like a second-round rookie quarterback. The offensive game planning reverted back to its midseason form, and the defense was victimized in the secondary. With the long inactive list tomorrow, many players have played their last game of the year and went out with a wimper. Here's a look at the grades PFF handed out from their debacle in Dallas.
Best Grade: WR Quez Watkins, 86.7
One of the most interesting stories during next year's training camp will be the development of Quez Watkins. Over the last two weeks, he has started to emerge as the speedster the team needed. He should see some decent playing time against the Football Team to end the season.
Worst Grade: TE Zach Ertz, 43.6
There is a real possibility that Zach Ertz plays his last game as an Eagle Sunday night. With the team falling way behind on the cap, and the emergence of Dallas Goedert as star TE, Ertz could be traded away this offseason. His play this year has made the decision less difficult but hopefully he can raise his stock in the finale.
Best Grade: DT T.Y. McGill, 87.3
After Fletcher Cox went out early with a stinger, McGill saw an increase in snaps. He didn't allow the Cowboys to run straight at him to take advantage of the Cox injury. McGill was also able to get a hit on Andy Dalton.
Worst Grade: CB Michael Jacquet, 26.9
And on the opposite side of the coin, Michael Jacquet was a complete non-factor on defense. He was targeted nine times and allowed seven receptions for 143 yards and a touchdown. Jacquet played a game last week that would make you miss Ronald Darby.
Miles Sanders will most likely finish the season with the league's highest drop rate at 22.2%.
Jalen Hurts has about a half-second longer in the pocket than Carson Wentz. Hurts has on average 3.38 seconds in the pocket and 4.05 seconds until a sack. Wentz averaged 2.89 seconds in the pocket and 3.52 before a sack.
