The Eagles’ offense bounced back from consecutive weeks of being held to fewer than 10 points when they played the Miami Dolphins, but it still wasn’t enough.
Quarterback Carson Wentz says the team’s offensive struggles aren’t limited to one issue.
“It seems almost every week it’s something different,” Wentz said Thursday. “We’re either shooting ourselves in the foot, I’m turning the ball over, missing throws, you know, that is the situation. It’s the consistency. The lack of it is frustrating.”
Wentz and Co. are coming off a 31-point performance against Miami, but the Dolphins’ defense is allowing a league-worst 31 points per game this season. It was still an improvement for an offense that managed just two touchdowns in the previous home games against the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.
The 26-year-old said he’s hoping the offense can build off its performance when it goes against the New York Giants, who are fourth-worst in the NFL in points allowed, giving up 28.5 points per game.
“I think we did some things well,” Wentz said of Sunday’s loss. “We didn’t make enough plays, obviously, but I think it got us going in the right direction, and we can keep building on it.”
