Week 8 PFF Grades

Only against the Cowboys could the Eagles play as poorly as they did and still win by 14 points. As a team, the Eagles left much to be desired, but there were a few standouts. Nevertheless, Week 9 is the bye week and the team will have a bit of extra time to get healthier and try to figure out this rut before the season comes to an end.


Offense:

Best Grade: WR Travis Fulgham, 78.1

It's official, the Eagles finally have a bona fide WR1 in Travis Fulgham. The former ODU Monarch has led the league in receiving yards (435) since he was promoted to the active roster in Week 4.

Worst Grade: WR Greg Ward, 50.2

Greg Ward was nowhere to be found against the Cowboys. He caught three passes on five targets for 10 yards. He had one drop that caused his grade to plummet, and with him being in the main WR trio along with Fulgham and Jalen Reagor, Ward will need to regain his 2019 magic if the Eagles want a fully competent receivers group.


Defense:

Best Grade: DE Brandon Graham, 83.7

Brandon Graham is in the midst of a career year, currently sitting 4th in the NFL in sacks with 7.0 of them. He continues to be a complete thorn in the side of the opposing offensive line every week.


Worst Grade: LB Alex Singleton, 28.3

It's weird saying that the worst single-game defensive grade this year is coming from a person not named Nathan Gerry. Alex Singleton was bad at everything you want a linebacker to be good at. Run defense (29.3), tackling (27.9), and coverage (35.9) were all worse than Gerry's usual numbers.

Notable Grades:

The best coverage grade on the team went to Jalen Mills (82.5), who is playing very well this year at safety. He is tied for the team lead in tackles with 32 and has one of the teams three interceptions.


The Eagles (83.8) are the highest graded pass rush team in the NFL, ranking 3rd in sacks with 28.


Lastly, if you want a quick chuckle, Carson Wentz (50.7) outplayed Lamar Jackson (47.7) this past Sunday according to Pro Football Focus.
