Jenkins: Eagles' lack of fight 'embarrassing'

Two days after a 48-7 loss to the Saints, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said a lack of fight out of some of his teammates was a primary reason for his frustrations. "It was embarrassing," he said. "We need to figure some things out about ourselves."

New Eagles WR Golden Tate ran 23 (or 85 percent) of 27 routes from the slot against the Saints. Nelson Agholor ran 10 (or 34 percent) of his 29 routes from the slot. It appears Tate will be the team's primary slot, with Agholor and Alshon Jeffery on the outside.

Eagles' Jenkins flips off his former coach Payton

With the Saints leading the Eagles by 31 early in the fourth quarter, cameras caught a frustrated Malcolm Jenkins giving his former coach Sean Payton the finger after New Orleans went for it on fourth-and-6.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Sean Payton addressed the idea of whether he considered taking his foot off the gas when the Saints threw a 37-yard TD pass to Alvin Kamara on fourth-and-6 with 13:15 remaining and the Saints leading the Eagles by 31: “It was gonna be a long field goal, longer than we wanted, with a potential block. We still weren't at that point in the game. You know, you just have to play in one game where you're up 31 in the fourth quarter and you lose … and that's an explosive offense. But it's an empty at-the-line call and Drew (Brees) did a good job of making the throw. You know, we're playing. And it's hard to have thoughts about what you want to do when you're still 15 minutes remaining in the game."

Saints coach Sean Payton with some unsolicited praise for Eagles/former Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins after Sunday's game: "I think the world of him. He's a tremendous player. I hate that he got out of here. That was probably as big a mistake as we've made here in 13 years. He's made up of all the right things, and he's a tremendous competitor."


Brees, Saints singe sinking Eagles, 48-7

Drew Brees passed for 363 yards and four touchdowns, and the Saints won their ninth straight with a 48-7 demolition of Philadelphia on Sunday that marked the Eagles' worst loss by far since they won last season's Super Bowl.

By stuffing Dwayne Washington for minus-3 yards on the Saints' next-to-last possession, the Eagles D/ST avoided the misfortune of the worst possible fantasy score (minus-12), finishing with minus-11. D/STs facing the Saints have scored minus-11 points in back-to-back weeks.

An Eagles loss to the Saints Sunday was expected, but the degree to which they were outclassed in a 48-7 throttling was troubling. The offense is broken — raising questions about just how significant the losses of former assistants Frank Reich and John DeFilippo truly were — and the defensive secondary is unrecognizable thanks to a slew of injuries. Forget focusing on the playoffs. This team needs to figure out a way to stabilize. If it keeps going this way, there could be some long-term damage.

A brutal offensive showing by the Eagles in the first half against the Saints. Zero points in the first quarter for the eighth time in 10 games. Finished with 109 total yards to the Saints' 321, and trail 24-7.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

Eagles entered with just 21 first-quarter points, a league low. Goose-egged against Saints today.

Another blow to the Eagles' secondary: rookie Avonte Maddox left the game late in the first quarter with an apparent right knee injury. Already without CBs Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby.

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer 

The New Orleans Saints are 7-0 ATS in their past seven games. They close as seven-point favorites against the Eagles.
