Eagles

THE NOTEBOOK: Eagles’ secondary crumbles in loss to Vikings

That wasn’t fun.

Kirk Cousins tossed three of his four touchdown passes to Stefon Diggs and the Minnesota Vikings pounded the Philadelphia Eagles 38-20 on Sunday afternoon.

So what happened? Let’s take a look …

HOW THE GRADING WORKS

To put it simply a (+) is a win for the offense, a (-) is a win for the defense and a (/) is a tie. For example, if a team has a 1st and 10 and the offense picks up five-or-more yards it’s a win for them. It’s a victory for the defense if they hold the offense to three yards or fewer. A four-yard gain is a tie.

An offensive touchdown results into (+++), but a turnover forced by the defense gets (- – ). A field goal is (++) and a safety (–). If the defense forces a three-and-out they get a bonus of (–).

(++)- Offense gains 15-29 yards past the original line of scrimmage. If the offense commits a holding penalty and they pick up 15 yards on a 1st and 20, the offense gets just one (+) instead of two.

(+++)- 30-49 yards (++++)-

50-74 yards (+++++)-

75-or-more yards (+++++)-
