Despite injuries, inconsistency and a final score that looked more like an Arena League contest than an NFL tilt, there are actually a few positives that can be plucked out of the Eagles’ performance on Sunday.
I know, that might sound ludicrous given the 48-22 pounding New Orleans put on the Birds.
But in that morass of problems, there were a few bright spots. And, of course, with their bye week looming, the Eagles will have a chance to at least move further along on their biggest issue (injuries).
So instead of three strikes, here are “four balls” that the Eagles collected on Sunday.
