Philadelphia dropped a tough one to the Bengals on Sunday, falling by a final score of 32-14.
The Eagles' defense was unable to stop Cincinnati during the afternoon, allowing the Bengals to score on their first six possessions of the game to jump ahead, 29-0. The Eagles notched their first points of the game off a 13-yard Zach Ertz touchdown with 2:36 on the clock in the third quarter. Philadelphia had the opportunity to break the shutout in the second quarter with a field goal, but kicker Caleb Sturgis' 51-yard attempt hit the right upright and was no good.
On the afternoon, quarterback Carson Wentz went 36-of-60 for 308 yards, a touchdown, three interceptions and a 58.2 passer rating. Wentz also picked up 16 rushing yards. The Eagles' offense as a whole struggled, especially in the run game. Philadelphia finished with 53 yards on the ground and one rushing touchdown, courtesy of Darren Sproles. In the passing game, the Eagles were without Jordan Matthews due to his ankle injury. Paul Turner stepped up and was the team's leading receiver with 80 yards on six receptions, his longest catch being 41 yards. Ertz added 79 yards on nine catches during the game as well.
For the Bengals, quarterback Andy Dalton was 23-of-31 for 332 yards with two touchdowns for a 130.0 passer rating. Even without star receiver A.J. Green, Cincinnati's passing game really carried the team. The Eagles' defense was able to force two fumbles, one of which was recovered by Jaylen Watkins and the second of which was picked up and returned 15 yards by Mychal Kendricks. However, the team was unable to make those turnovers count and ultimately left Cincinnati with a loss.
The Eagles fell to the Bengals 32-14 in Cincinnati.
