Eagles’ Front 7 Getting the Job Done Against the Redskins in Week 11

Don’t be fooled by the box score and the amount of yards the Eagles’ defense gave up this game.  While it wasn’t a complete and all out domination for 60 minutes, the defense, and specifically the front 7, made some big stops at key moments in the game to help lead the Eagles to victory. Here are some of the highlights:

Brandon Graham knifing through the offensive line to tackle Alfred Morris for a 3 yard loss.Graham 3 yard loss

Bennie Logan showing great agility to meet Alfred Morris in the hole and stuff him for a 1 yard loss.Logan 1 yard loss

Connor Barwin with a huge sack and fumble in the redzone.Barwin Sack Fumble

Fletcher Cox and Connor Barwin with a huge stop on 3rd and 2. Cox does a great job here of fighting off his block and filling what could have been a nice hole for Morris to run through.Fletcher Cox 3rd and 2 stop

Trent Cole with a sack on Griffin. He does a great job here of knocking left tackle Trent Williams’ arms away, preventing Williams from getting his hands to his chest.Cole sack

Cedric Thornton getting a great push against the run, stopping Morris for a 1 yard loss on 2nd and 1. I pause the clip midway through, take a look at how he surges at the end to push the offensive lineman back into Morris once he sees Morris trying to cut back.Thornton penetration

Vinny Curry getting a good jump off the snap and getting into the backfield, forcing Morris to have to cut back into the teeth of the defense. Curry also gets a hand of his jersey, slowing him up a bit. The line of scrimmage is at the 25 yard line. When Curry forces Morris to cut up field, he’s at around the 21 yard line, 4 yards deep into the backfield.Curry penetration

Great to see the front 7 playing aggressive, swarming to the ball, and making plays.  Enjoy the week off fellas, you’ve earned it.

  1. Hey man, I’m really impressed with your work breaking down tape, matchups, and even stats regarding the Philadelphia Eagles. There’s a lot of high quality analysis on this site, and I was wondering if you would be interested in covering the entire NFL.
