Week 2 Eagles score by position after Vikings win at MNF

Week 2 Eagles Score in Position After Victory Over Vikings on MNF Originally Appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

The Eagles took a full win on Monday Night Football and dominated the Vikings with a final score of 24-7.

The hypetrain has officially left the station.

Here is a breakdown of the numbers by position of victory:

quarterback

Jalen Hurts: 26/31, 333 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT; 11 rushes, 57 yards, 2 TDs

This is arguably the biggest win of Hurts’ career. He was great. Hurts completed 83.9% and it could have been higher; some of his best throws on Monday didn’t even count. Hurts also had 57 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground and he really had to fight through tacklers for both. His only interception came on a ball that bounced off the hands of Kenny Gainwell. This felt like a game where Hurts really took over the quarterback position in Philly. Obviously there is still a long way to go this season, but his stock is rising after this season.

Quality: A+

run back

Miles Sanders: 17 carries, 80 yards

It wasn’t an incredible performance, but Sanders put in a good day, averaging 4.7 yards per attempt. Boston Scott added 4 for 19. The running backs didn’t have much influence on the passing game. The only major mishap came from Gainwell, who couldn’t handle a screen pass and tipped it off to a defender for an interception.

Rank: B+

Receiver

DeVonta Smith: 7 catches on 7 goals, 80 yards

AJ Brown performed great in the Detroit opener. But it wasn’t just Brown in this one. All three of the Eagles’ top receivers played big games against the Vikings’ zone defenses. In addition to Smith’s 80-yard game, AJ Brown had 5 for 69 and Quez Watkins had 2 for 69, including a 53-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Even Zach Pascal had 2 for 14, including a big third-down conversion in the first quarter.

Quality: A+

Tight ending

Dallas Goedert: 5 catches on 6 goals, 82 yards

There is no doubt that Goedert is off to a great start in 2022. In two games, he has 8 catches for 142 yards. He hasn’t found the end zone yet, but it probably won’t be long. He’s on pace for 68/1207.

Class A

Attacking line

The OL were guilty of a few too many penalties (they were flagged off for seven!), but they blocked well enough to give Hurts enough time in the bag. Hurts was fired three times for 10 yards, but the line did well enough to let him pass 333 yards. Something to clean up but that device plays well.

Class A-

Defense Line

Josh Sweat: 1 Sack, 3 Tackles, 3 QB Hits, 3 TFLs

The Eagles sacked Kirk Cousins ​​twice in this game with the Sweat Sack in the last game. Fletcher Cox turned back the clock and performed strongly with, among other things, a comic bag. And Javon Hargrave also had a significant push on one of the interceptions. The Eagles really put the pressure on in the second half, but there were periods when the pocket was too clean. Would love to see more from Haason Reddick; he’s done a great job blowing up a screen pass, but hasn’t managed to come after QBs yet. In the run game, the Eagles completely eliminated Dalvin Cook, who had only 6 carries for 17 yards.

Rank: B+

linebacker

TJ Edwards: 10 tackles, 1 QB hit, 1 TFL, 1 PBU

After a shaky performance in the opener, Edwards made a huge recovery. He was a tackle machine and gave the Eagles the kind of physicality he gave them in the second half of last season. And Kyzir White flew around too, finishing with 5 tackles and 1 pass breakup. Early in the season, that’s like stealing a free desk.

Class A

subordinate

Darius Slay: 2 INTs, 5 PBUs, 1 tackle

This was the best game of the Slay’s Eagles career. He spent most of the evening 1-on-1 with Justin Jefferson and dominated. Even aside from his two interceptions, Slay could have had a few more if he could’ve landed them. NextGenStatsSlay actually had more catches than Jefferson when the two faced each other. That is a dominant achievement.

Plus, Avonte Maddox had a wonderful jumping interception.

Quality: A+

Special teams

Arryn Siposs: 4 punts, 179 yards (44.8), 2 knockdown within 20, 1 tackle

The Eagles did block a field goal, which wasn’t good, but credit to Siposs for knocking it down and saving a touchdown. Britain Covey didn’t do much as a punt returner and Watkins hasn’t been great as a kick returnee. But in the return game, at least the Eagles didn’t give much away.

Grade B

Coaching

Record: 2-0

The Eagles came into this game with great plans on both sides of football. Give a lot of credit to offensive coordinator Shane Steichen, who has now done a really good job of play-calling in back-to-back games. On defense, Jonathan Gannon had a more aggressive game plan, married his multiple scheme and really helped his defense put the clamps on a Minnesota offense that has the potential to be very explosive.
