For reasons outside of their performance against the Giants in Week 7, the Eagles have emerged as the clear betting favorite to win the NFC East. The Eagles didn't have many standouts on offense; most of the team played solid rather than a few people carrying. The defense had a small group of guys playing very well, with just a few dropping into the 40's.
Best Grade: WR John Hightower, 77.2
Even though this grade isn't stellar, this is a really good sign. Hightower was struggling to find his way earlier in the year but over the past two weeks has shown a lot of promise. Each week Hightower looks like a legitimate deep threat, which is good because that's why he was drafted.
Worst Grade: LT Jordan Mailata 47.9
I'm going to wait to be alarmed by this one; Mailata has been playing very well since Jason Peters went down. It's probable that this was a bad week for the Australian, which is fine for a player like him to have since this is his first year playing actual football against opponents.
Best Grade: DE Brandon Graham, 89.8
Brandon Graham back to doing Brandon Graham things. If I was a betting man (I am) I'd say if Graham held contain on the Daniel Jones run, he'd be in the high 90's. That's the only bad play Graham made
Worst Grade: CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, 39.5
Nickell Robey-Coleman started the year decent, but he is not playing well on the outside. With Avonte Maddox only playing three snaps, the former Ram had to hold it down on the outside opposite Darius Slay, which is not his forte.
The Eagles (91.7) have the second-highest graded special teams. How about that?
The Dallas Cowboys (35.6) are the worst coverage team in the league, Carson Wentz (18.6%) had the highest percentage of deep balls (20+ yards) in Week 7. Sunday Night Football should be fun to watch for Eagles fans.
