Lack of receiving weapons outside of Brown and Goedert
After spending his first three years in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans, wide receiver A.J. Brown made his regular-season debut for the Eagles last weekend against the Lions.
It was quite the debut as Brown managed to haul in 10 catches for 155 yards. In addition to his performance, Philadelphia tight end Dallas Goedert also caught three passes for 60 yards.
When it comes to Brown and Goedert, they both had good days against Detroit. But outside of these two, the rest of the Eagles’ offense only accumulated five receptions for 28 yards.
So if the Vikings wanted to build a defensive game plan that focuses on stopping Brown and Goedert, last week’s performance from Philadelphia would indicate that as being a good strategy to win.
