Roob's Eagles observations: 1 theory why Hurts' running numbers are down 


Jalen Hurts' rushing numbers have declined from 5.6 yards per carry in 2020 and 2021 to 3.2 this year, but there are positive indicators like increased first-down conversions and a higher running success rate, suggesting he's become a more efficient runner. 

Jake Elliott has an impressive 6-for-7 record on field goal attempts of 56 yards or longer as an Eagle, while other kickers in Eagles history are 2-for-25 in such attempts. 

Rodney Peete holds the highest passer rating in Eagles playoff history, despite a poor stretch leading up to the game. In a 1995 wild-card win, he posted a remarkable 143.3 passer rating after struggling in previous games. 

Sam Howell becomes the 10th different Washington quarterback to face the Eagles in the last 12 matchups, showcasing the instability at the position for Washington. 

Jalen Hurts has shown improvement in passing stats, including completing more passes of at least 20 yards in recent weeks and maintaining a yards-per-completion average on par with his career average. 

D'Andre Swift's impressive rushing yards through the first three weeks of the season rank 5th in Eagles history, sparking speculation about a potential long-term deal with the Eagles due to his youth and performance.
