Wentz threw three landing pbades, the Eagles protection didn’t throw a landing and the Eagles are nicely on their strategy to an Eight-1 report after Jay Ajayi ran for a 46-yard landing that put them up 31-9 simply earlier than halftime.
Ajayi’s first landing as an Eagle got here on the finish of a half that noticed him run 5 instances for 69 yards general. That’s a pleasant preview of what the Eagles hope to get from Ajayi after buying him in a commerce with the Dolphins this week and it might make an already good offense look even higher.
