Philadelphia Eagles: 3 ways to overcome Jay Ajayi being out for season

In fact, the Eagles landing Ajayi the way they did was viewed as a major steal since they basically gave up nothing to the Dolphins in exchange for the running back, and the team seemed to have the intentions of keeping him around for the long run. He rushed for 1,924 yards and nine touchdowns in 31 games with Miami before he was traded to the Eagles In October 2017. After being a creative, elite unit last season, the Eagles offense looks lost and seems to have zero answers for the blitz.

"It's self-inflicted", Head Coach Doug Pederson said. "We've got to really be hard on ourselves and learn from these mistakes and turn it around fast". "All those things we talk about from day in OTAs (organized team activities), we're not doing".

The Philadelphia Eagles are 2-3 after Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, meaning the reigning Super Bowl champions are hearing a lot of questions about what's going wrong.

Minnesota added another touchdown right before half, thanks to a poor response from the Eagles' offense after Joseph's crowd-silencing touchdown, as it went three-and-out, a drive that was sabotaged by two false start penalties. The first came midway through the second quarter.

But three penalties-illegal formation, Wentz's intentional grounding and delay of game-moved the ball back to the 45.

Cousins threw for 301 yards and one touchdown, and completed 30 of 37 passes to become the first player in National Football League history with at least 30 completions in four consecutive games.

During a 23-21 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings, the Eagles also suffered a massive blow to their running back core as lead back, Jay Ajayi, suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill losing Vikings' tight end Kyle Rudolph for a 17-yard gain on a third-and-one with 5:09 left. It's easy to forget, in the wake of Nick Foles' near-flawless play in both the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl LII, just how often the Eagles won games previous year because Wentz, more than anyone, won them.

There just seems to be one important fact that the Eagles and their fans have seemed to forget-the National Football League didn't stop playing games after the Eagles won. The Birds committed two penalties.

"With the offensive line that we have on this team, running the ball like that, that doesn't make sense to me".

The Eagles will need a collective effort to fill in for the 2016 Pro Bowler as they attempt to save their season and make another deep run. "Little mistakes are killing us. I think the message was heard and received, but it was very important this week because of the nature of getting out with a lead and then making sure we stayed the course and finished".

"Credit to Coach Flip for being aggressive as a play caller, giving us a chance", Cousins said. "We thought it was a blitz and I slid down for the blitzer who never came and let the end get inside of me and he sacked the quarterback".

The Vikings recaptured the spirit of what makes this team so good; why they haven't been counted out in the NFC picture despite going through a host of ups and downs during the most hard stretch on their schedule.
