Eagles' troubles can't be pinned on just the coach or QB

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have too many problems to pin the blame on one person. While coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Carson Wentz get most of the criticism for the team's 3-6-1 record, which is good enough for first place in the pitiful NFC East, there's plenty of blame to be spread...

CLEVELAND (AP) — Kareem Hunt lifted off just inside the 5-yard line, soared over the head of Philadelphia's Jalen Mills like an Olympic long jumper and landed in the end zone.

Nov. 20, 2020 10:53 AM EST

CLEVELAND (AP) — Before he ever soared — or, in the case of this season, sputtered — for the Eagles, quarterback Carson Wentz was connected to the Browns. They passed on the chance to draft him. On Sunday, their paths cross again. Wentz has been inconsistent, turnover prone and barely looked...
