Philadelphia Eagles are in risk of going home after a slow start to Monday's playoff game against Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The defending NFC champions disappointed Troy Aikman.
The first half saw Tampa Bay lead 16-3. Aikman said the Eagles looked like they gave up while calling the game on ESPN with Joe Buck.
Poor body language suggested they're "not really into this ballgame" to Aikman.
The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback wondered why the Eagles weren't running more. Four times in the first four possessions, including two quick punts, Jalen Hurts passed the ball.
The play call on an unsuccessful third-down try confused Aikman. "I dislike that mix," Aikman stated. Not sure what that is! Two receivers within five yards."
The defense gave Baker Mayfield 175 yards and a touchdown. Buck and Aikman didn't like a midseason defensive coordinator change from Sean Desai to Matt Patricia.
To finish the season, the Eagles dropped five of six after starting 10-1. A first-round exit would be terrible for Nick Sirianni's team.
Philadelphia reduced the score to 16-9 before halftime. Without standout wide receiver A.J. Brown, Jalen Hurts found DeVonta Smith for 55 yards and threw a five-yard touchdown to Dallas Goedert.
