Toyota Player Of The Week Nominees: Panthers

When looking at the offensive stats from the Eagles' Week 7 contest against the Panthers, it makes it all the more puzzling how the defending champs came out on the losing end of it.

The Eagles all but dominated Carolina through three quarters with the help of some stellar individual performances. But football is a team game and one bad quarter cost the Eagles yet another game.

Here are the nominees for the Toyota Player of the Week:

TE Zach Ertz

If the Eagles had won this game, Ertz's performance would be fondly remembered as not only the best games of his career, but arguably one of the best from a pass catcher in Eagles history.

Ertz caught nine passes for 138 yards, as he continued to tear up opposing defenses. The Eagles may be 3-4, but it isn't because of a lack of production from Ertz.

WR Alshon Jeffery

Another performance that would be fondly remembered would have been Jeffery's, as he caught seven passes for 88 yards and caught his fourth touchdown of the season in the second quarter.

The Eagles' dominance through the first three quarters was mostly due to Jeffery giving the Panthers' defensive backs all sorts of problems.

DE Michael Bennett

The Eagles' defense made life rough for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in the first half and that was partially because of the pressure Bennett was able to put on the former league MVP.

Bennett set the tone defensively with an early sack and collected a pair of tackles overall.
