Pennsylvania online sportsbooks listed the Philadelphia Eagles as 7.5-point underdogs against the Baltimore Ravens early in the week. By kickoff on Sunday, the Ravens were 10-point favorites against the banged-up Birds.
Early indications pointed to a blowout. The Eagles offense averaged negative .44 yards per play through their first 16 snaps. The Ravens led 17-0 at halftime. Carson Wentz turned in a gutsy performance, but an Eagles two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter was stopped, which sealed the 30-28 win for the Ravens.
By the end of the game, Wentz and center Jason Kelce were the only Week One starters still standing. Additional members added to the Eagles M.A.S.H. unit after Week Six were:
- Miles Sanders (knee, out 1-2 weeks)
- Zach Ertz (ankle, out 3-4 weeks)
- Malik Jackson (quad, out 1-2 weeks)
- Jack Driscoll (ankle, out 1-2 weeks)
The Birds have little time to lick their wounds. They host the New York Giants on Thursday night. PA sportsbook apps have the Eagles as 3.5-point favorites.

If any other team says they are dealing with injuries, show them the Eagles current depth chart. I’ve never seen anything like it. 9/11 starters out. Even the backups are hurt! And this is just on the offense. pic.twitter.com/ogYWt5Amzr

Wentz wrecked but fights on
Wentz was sacked seven times and got hit 17 times. Eagles Twitter feared for Wentz’s life.

Fans return to Lincoln Financial Field
The Philadelphia Eagles hosted about 6,000 fans on Sunday for the first time this season.
For those who “can’t wait until things get back to normal…”
Sproles was REALLY getting after it with the sucker punches. S/o to Reed for playing peacemaker. Along those lines, C-minus effort by whoever was trying to hold Wentz back at the start.
Also, fight song really adds to the overall scene. pic.twitter.com/wxaTjb3oxL
