, needing a touchdown to win but settling for a pair of field goals that weren't enough Sunday in a 26-23 loss to the Tennessee Titans ."It's frustrating, obviously, to come up short, especially as an offense when you have chances," Wentz said."We had chances to finish in the end zone at the end of the game, finish in the end zone in overtime. And we just didn't execute in the red zone the way we wanted to, and you can look at all sorts of plays from the game. At the end of the day, we just didn't finish as an offense and as a team either."Philadelphia (2-2) outgained Tennessee 432-397. Wentz threw for 348 yards and two touchdowns, and Jeffery finished with eight catches for 105 yards and a TD in his season debut . Zach Ertz led the Eagles with 10 catches for 112 yards.The Eagles led 10-3 at halftime, 17-3 midway through the third quarter and even 23-20 in overtime. They simply couldn't find the play to pull out their third straight win.Coach Doug Pederson said he thinks the effort is there."The mistakes we're making are all fixable, whether it's a coverage element being out of position or just a holding along the perimeter offensively we can't do Lane Johnson Jerseys Stitched
," Pederson said. "It's things we can correct in practice during the week, and that's what we have to do."Pederson said the Eagles stopped themselves on the two late drives. The Eagles also gave up four sacks, the last with Wentz stripped of the ball setting up a Tennessee field goal early in the fourth quarter. That was the lone fumble of three Philadelphia lost.The Eagles also were flagged eight times for 77 yards."Whether it was just execution, maybe a penalty backed us up just a touch, a sack, something negative happened," Pederson said. "It just got us out of our rhythm. It's seems like we got down there fine, and Tennessee bowed their neck and kept us to three, much like our defense has done for the first month of the season."The Eagles also had some dropped passes, particularly Nelson Agholor, who caught only five of the 12 balls Wentz threw at him with four drops."That's not something you want to do Youth Paul Worrilow Jerseys
," Agholor said. "You take the frustration outside of it, you know, that's your job. You just get a little upset because you prepare for it, but you have to work harder and you have to bounce back."The Eagles couldn't convert on a pair of third downs late.Wentz threw the ball away on third-and-3 just before Jake Elliott kicked a 30-yard field goal with 16 seconds left in regulation. Wentz said the Titans had them covered, along with some miscommunication. Ertz couldn't pull in Wentz's pass on third-and-12 at the Titans 19 in overtime before the Eagles settled for Elliott's third and final field goal.Ertz said the Eagles cannot simply rely on what worked last season."We can't say that we're just going to flip a switch, and we're just going to start going on a roll and win nine in a row," Ertz said. "We're playing really good football teams, and we've just got to find a way to win. The thing that sticks out about this team is typically we find a way to win. Today we just dropped the ball. They beat us and my hat's off to them."Follow Teresa M.

EDTShareTweetShareShareEagles OTA Practice Notes: The Carson Wentz to DeSean Jackson connection is looking goodJames Lang-USA TODAY SportsThe Philadelphia Eagles resumed their OTA practice schedule on Tuesday. The session was open to media and I was there. Keep in mind that these are all non-contact drills at this point. Players aren’t allowed to wear pads yet. There’s only so much to be gleaned from guys running around in shorts, but here’s what I noticed.• CARSON WENTZ UPDATE: Louis Riddick just might be on to something because Wentz was looking awfully sharp out there today. I didn’t see an incompletion from him in 3-on-3 drills. Wentz dropped a dime to Zach Ertz on along the sideline during 11-on-11. (UPDATE: The Eagles posted a video of this play.)Then Wentz hit DeSean Jackson over the middle from about 35 yards for a touchdown. Wentz found an open Jackson for another touchdown in red zone drills. Wentz and Jackson haven’t connected on a 40+ yard deep bomb just yet — Wentz aired one out today but Rasul Douglas had good coverage and it was incomplete — but they already seem to have a good chemistry in the short and intermediate passing game. That’s an encouraging sign at such an early point in the offseason. Another highlight came when Wentz lobbed up a pass to JJ Arcega-Whiteside, who made one of his signature jump ball catches in the corner of the end zone. Sidney Jones basically got Moss’d in coverage. Good to see Wentz making those kind of trust throws after struggling to do that at times in 2018. It wasn’t a flawless practice for Wentz as Kamu Grugier-Hill and Jones broke up a couple of his attempts but there was a lot more good than bad. • ATTENDANCE UPDATES: Malcolm Jenkins Youth Derek Barnett Jerseys
, Alshon Jeffery, Lane Johnson, and Jason Peters still aren’t at OTAs. Zach Brown was at practice after missing last week’s session but he didn’t participate at all. Brown was chatting up Jim Schwartz prior to practice. • INJURY UPDATES: Mack Hollins, Ronald Darby, Jalen Mills, Rodney McLeod, Corey Clement, Nigel Bradham, and Brandon Brooks (see video update below) are all still recovering. Miles Sanders still hasn’t practiced yet; it’s unclear why. Linebackers Nathan Gerry and Paul Worrilow weren’t practicing after participating in last week’s session. Gerry was doing some rehab work on a side field. • DEPTH CHART UPDATES: Avonte Maddox was playing on the outside with the first team defense while Jones was working in the slot. Last week it was the other way around. The Eagles are experimenting with their defensive back options, as they should. L.J. Fort and Kamu Grugier-Hill took first team linebacker reps with Bradham, Brown Derek Barnett Jerseys Stitched
, and Gerry not practicing. • Nate Sudfeld was up and down once again. He held on the ball for too long before throwing to a receiver on a crossing route. As a result, Josh Hawkins was able to undercut the route for a pick six. Sudfeld also overthrew a quick slant to Charles Johnson. Sudfeld did earn praise from coaches and teammates after hitting Richard Rodgers on a fade route in the back corner of the end zone for a touchdown. • Undrafted rookie free agent linebacker T.J. Edwards stood out on a few occasions. The Wisconsin alumnus notably blew up a screen and broke up a short pass over the middle meant for Wendell Smallwood. Edwards reportedly received the most amount of guaranteed money of any Eagles UDFA signing. He could really push for a roster spot.• Grugier-Hill had an active practice as well. He picked off a bad throw from rookie quarterback Clayton Thorson during 3-on-3 drills. Kamu also knocked down a goal line pass meant for Dallas Goedert. He proceeded to stare down the second-year tight end and yell “GET THAT SHIT OUTTA HERE” at him. Love Kamu’s energy. • One of the biggest plays in practice was a reception by ... Carlton Agudosi?! The Rutgers alumnus caught a wobbly pass from Clayton Thorson deep down the field. Avonte Maddox and Rasul Douglas both had Agudosi covered well; the ball should’ve been picked off ... but the 6-6 wide receiver tracked the ball better than his defensive back couterparts. This might be the only time I write about Agudosi this entire offseason. • Arcega-Whiteside’s jump ball touchdown reception from Wentz was really impressive. Fantastic body control and strong hands. JJ almost made another impressive jump ball catch along the sideline but he lost control as he was being “contacted.” That’s the second week in a row I’ve seen that happen. He obviously has to do a better job of finishing those plays. • Some highlights for the Boston Scott hive out there: the running back had a nice reception on a wheel route. He also saw a first team
install rep where he pitched the handoff back to Wentz, who connected with Nelson Agholor deep down the field. Flea flicker!• DeSean Jackson, Boston Scott, Donnel Pumphrey, and DeAndre Thompkins were the punt returners during practice. Jackson’s the only roster lock at that spot and it’d be surprising if he was the full time punt returner. I wonder about the Eagles’ plan at that spot. • Cameron Johnston was booting punts. He looks good. There’s a very important punter observation for you. (But really just for BGN’s own Alexis Chassen.)• Shelton Gibson and Sidney Jones have been the first team gunners on punt coverage. Maybe a good sign for Gibson as he tries to fight for a fifth or sixth roster spot? • Blake Countess was the first team personal protector.• Undrafted rookie free agent offensive lineman Ryan Bates is lining up at right tackle on the second team offensive line but he’s also getting center reps during 7-on-7 drills. • #NicknameAnalytics update: Prior to practice, Jim Schwartz referred to Andrew Sendejo as “Dejo” (pronounced: Day-ho). That could be a good sign for his roster chances and thus a bad sign for the Eagles landing another 2020 fourth-round compensatory pick. • #JerseyNumberAnalytics update: Casey Tucker is wearing No. 50. He’s an offensive tackle. That’s a horrible selection. It really makes me wonder if he’s even taking this NFL opportunity seriously. Does he even know he’s not a linebacker?
