Imagine you had not watched the Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans today. Would you believe it if I told you that the Eagles actually held a nine point lead in the fourth quarter of this game? A game that they lost by 18 points? It’s all too true… The Titans outscored the Eagles 27-3 in the fourth quarter of this game and turned a two score deficit into a total blowout.
For the Titans, the star was Kenny Britt who set a record for the most receiving yards by an opposing player in Eagles franchise history. He had 225 yards and 3 TDs in a total domination of the pair of CB Ellis Hobbs and rookie S Nate Allen.
It would be pointless to list all of the Eagles that were poor today. In every way, this was the definition of a “team loss.” There’s probably not one guy outside of David Akers, who you can really say played well.
As I said, there’s a lot of blame to go around here, but let’s look at the easy stuff that always loses you games. The Eagles had four turnovers today, which the Titans scored 20 points off. They forced two turnovers, but scored zero off those. Finally, they had ten penalties for 100 yards. You can’t do that and win games. It’s that simple.
