Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has tested positive for COVID-19.
Pederson told reporters he’s asymptomatic and feels well, but he’ll have to quarantine away from the team nonetheless. In the meantime, RB coach Duce Staley will take over head coaching responsibilities. Pederson will continue to work with the team virtually and hopes to be back on the sidelines soon. He’s the second head coach to be known to have tested positive for coronavirus, with Sean Payton being the first known case back in March.
The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST held the Seattle Seahawks to 17 points in a 17-9 loss in the first round of the NFL playoffs on Sunday, recording one sack while failing to force any turnovers.
While the Philadelphia Eagles D/ST stepped up in a big way on Sunday, many of the same problems that have hindered them all season hurt them in this game, including their inability to force turnovers and get off the field on third down. Their run defense remains one of the best in the league, but this unit will need to fix its problems in the secondary if it is going to make any strides in 2020.
The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST allowed 17 points in a Week 17 win over the New York Giants, recording four sacks, recovering one fumble, and intercepting one pass.
Outside of a 68-yard touchdown run to Saquon Barkley on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles D/ST played well and avoided the costly big plays that have plagued them so often this season. By winning, the Eagles won the NFC East and will host the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs next week.
The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST held the Dallas Cowboys to just three field goals in a win on Sunday, recording two sacks and recovering one fumble.
The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST allowed 37 points to the Cowboys in a Week 7 loss, so this Sunday was a surprising bounce-back performance after they also allowed 27 points to Washington last week. They will look to close out the season strong when they take on the Giants in New Jersey next week.
The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST allowed 27 points on 362 total yards without sacking Dwayne Haskins or forcing any interceptions, but they did return a fumble for a touchdown as time expired.
The Philadelphia Eagles D/ST has been awful for most of the season, especially in the secondary. They have managed to rack up sacks and the occasional turnover to salvage their performances from a fantasy perspective, however, and their last-second fumble recovery for a touchdown on Sunday was more of the same.
