The Eagles have committed the second-most turnovers in the NFL this season, a problem Andy Reid said they must fix.

As has been the case most of the season, turnovers hurt the Philadelphia Eagles once again on Sunday. On Monday, head coach Andy Reid said the turnover issues were something Philadelphia had to fix.

The Eagles committed two turnovers against the Steelers on Sunday, and have now turned the ball over 14 times in the the first five games of the season. Only the Kansas City Chiefs have committed more turnovers than the Eagles this season.

Philadelphia is 11th in the NFL in offensive yards per game, but second-to-last in points per game. Reid said turnovers are a big reason why the Eagles have struggled to score points this season.

"You can't have the turnovers that we had in the first half. That is not helping our scoring cause during games," Reid said on Monday. "It's hindering our ability to score."

In an effort to fix the problem, Reid said the team will focus on turnovers during practice.

"As a coach, you emphasize it. You continue to emphasize it in practice. That's what you do. And as a player you make it happen," Reid said.

The Eagles have committed at least two turnovers in four of their five games this season.
