Now this year at 2-3 and the frustration building what's next? It doesn't matter. It's one every franchise quarterback must bear.

Sunday against the Vikings, the Eagles ran just 19 offensive plays in the first half for 91 total yards.

For more Philadelphia Eagles coverage go to the philly.com website. In the last two games, including Sunday's game against the Vikings, Wentz has been sacked 12 times and fumbled three times.

According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Joseph reached a max speed of 18.2 miles per hour on his fumble return touchdown. In addition to that, the run game has become inconsistent.

After acquiring the running back from the Miami Dolphins in the middle of last season, Ajayi ended up being a key piece on offense for Philadelphia during their epic Super Bowl run, and was arguably the top player in the backfield on the current roster. They committed two critical turnovers inside Minnesota territory. In addition to that, the receiving core is still not there yet. Now granted Alshon Jeffery is still working his way back but Agholor has been fairly quiet the last few weeks.

But if we learned nothing else from the three games the Eagles have lost, we've learned that the defense's ability to keep coming to the rescue isn't going to continue forever. The Eagles are also now in the hardest part of the schedule.


Then they went the wrong way. Following the bye week, four of the next five opponents will be division games with a matchup with the Saints in between. "I think focus really is the word when you look at just doing your job snap in and snap out whether it is 70 plays or 50 plays".

"Credit to Coach Flip for being aggressive as a play caller, giving us a chance", Cousins said.

They walk away from a 23-21 win over Philadelphia having achieved that feat by surviving a late push from the Eagles, halting an early losing streak in the process while regaining control of their season at a critical point. This team isn't far off at all.

Trying to rally from a 17-point deficit midway through the third quarter, the Eagles were set up to take the lead after Roc Thomas dropped a backward pass and Nigel Bradham recovered the fumble at the Vikings 30 in the fourth quarter.

Starting Thursday the Eagles must turn the page. Cornerback Jalen Mills got beat on a double move, which was a constant theme throughout the game.
