The result was outstanding as the Eagles led the road match for nearly all of the game.
One take a few takeaways from the week 10 grades of PFF: the Eagles victory against Denver Broncos and the site was praised for its great efforts.
DeVonta Smith continues to grow.
The wide-out quickly snuffed his own touchdown for a touchdown over former Alabama teammate Patrick Surtain in the end zone. The wideout was perfect, despite a large effort from the late mid-season tush-first, and he remained in control.
Smith wasn't done after the first-quarter kick, or was he passing with an eight84 yards and two touchdowns, he later caught an 82,3 overall grade of Hurts, and, however, completed with 4 catch for 66 yards and 2 touchdowns; then then, the tin, a 78.8 for blocking, and was the most effective offensive player in the league.
Jalen Hurts puts together a strong outing to build a strong outing.
Hurts came in the first half against the Broncos, leading four scores and nearly coming away with three touchdowns. If he hadn't been to the stop with a Quez Watkins drop, Hurts' solid stat line had to be even larger compared to the four-point drive of 178 yards. The interception and the two touchdowns would take the same attitude that she used to be squandering.
His passing grade was 65.3, likely because of his second-half pick in double coverage.
Other youngsters do it.
Denver was a good place for young players to shine in limited action.
The Broncos' 9th-round pick Patrick Johnson excelled in limited action, earning an 86.9 grade for nine snaps. He was quick and desperate.
As such, it was an abad day for defense as a whole.
In offense, Kenny Gainwell (67.9), Jordan Mailata (67.8) and Jack Stoll (66.7) all earned strong grades. He also performed like a blocker (74.0 in pass pro, 68.7 in run blocking).
Safe rotation works well....
The Eagles spent an extra-risk rotation on Sunday in the game, bringing Marcus Epps with Anthony Harris and Rodney McLeod throughout the game. While Harris was an aggressive coverage plan, McLeod didn't have the best time.
A 87.0 grade for tackling and a 71.1 grade for coverage were good marks across the board. McLeod earned a 38.6 grade, with a 27.9 tackling mark and a 44.3 cover.
Epps, who has come on quite a bit lately, earned a seven3.4 grade for his 20 defensive snaps. He aplent a pass and broke up a pass, his way.
The defensive line shines with solid effort from secondary.
Gannon finally switched up his coverage programme against the Broncos, and then did his best, because the Eagles previous nine outings showed a clear weakness for the ultra-accurate QB, Teddy Bridgewater, to exploit. The Eagles played more press-man coverage to give the defensive line more time and force pressure for Bridgewater and the change in strategy worked.
Of course, at the time, a play that was kind of awkward and harsh. When he hit the target, he put up one pass for two yards on the ground, but he was remarkably poor with the score he made up on the spot causing the failure of the second half. At the end, his hands were joking with some ball to get ball-eye-like and went into the ball with the play. Despite that, in the course of a game where everything tacks,
On the defensive line, Ryan Kerrigan, Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave and Hassan Ridgeway all had their moments.
Kerrigan had a 779 grade for standing out as a pass rusher and run stopper, while playing time decreased, and Cox (64.8) and Hargrave (71.7) combined for nine pressures, two runs stops and a QB hit, and Ridgeway earned 62.3, also producing a hurry with 13 snaps.

Boston Scott and Jordan Howard are valued at the very best.
After watching the games off the side for the majority of the first seven games, the duo of Scott and Howard had been electric over the last three games. Both players eclipsed 80 rushing yards against the Broncos, a then-top-10 run defense, and both went over 20 yards during the matchup.
Even though Miles Sanders is likely to return from injured reserve in short order, the Eagles shouldn't move away from Scott and Howard, because they are extremely effective in the featured backs absence.
Howard received 78.2 for his performance, with 12 carries for 81 yards, and a PFF of 79.6. Scott received 91.3 grades as a receiver, as he did well in the screen game, in both passing for 24 yards.
Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson anchor O-line again, again by Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson.
Sirianni said the offensive line earned a game ball for their dominance.
The left guard, based on their grades, went out relatively well (64.8) before leaving for Mailata.
Among the Eagles that gave up their sack and hit, Dickerson was credited with the sack and hit, while Mailata and Kelce each praised his speed.
The group had a strong showing which had another in-game adjustment to make, with Sua Opeta and Nate Herbig coming in for spot duty.
