It was the will of the blocked Punt and Jalen Hearts that the Eagles lost three games in a row after defeating the Carolina Panthers 21-18 at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday.
TJ Edwards broke through the middle to sniff Joseph Charlton’s punt. This is the Eagles snuff for the first time in 4 years. It gave the Eagles the first down on the Panthers 27-yard line.
After three plays, Hearts rushed into the end zone, scoring a 6-yard score with the Lampad option and giving the Eagles the first lead of a sunny afternoon with 2:42 remaining. Hearts fake to Miles Sanders set it.
Hearts then evaded the pass rusher and connected with Devonta Smith behind the end zone to achieve a two-point conversion.
Hearts’ 20-yard throw to Dallas Goedert set up the TD.
In the last 90 seconds, Hearts ran to convert a one-third and a short after Miles Sanders ran out of out-of-bounds twice when the Eagles tried to kill the watch.
Stephen Nelson’s interception of Sam Darnold at 2:03 ended the threat of the Panthers (3-2), who lost two games in a row.
This was Eagles’ third interception, with Darius Slay registering another player.
Sorry, after the first half, the Eagles woke up in the second half of the third quarter.
The Eagles reached within 15-13 with a Hearts sneak in the frame and capped the march fueled by the completion of 53 yards to Quez Watkins.
Before that, the Eagles and Panthers exchanged intercepts, Donte Jackson picked up Hearts, and Srey stole Darnold. Smith also lost the Eagles fumble.
The Panthers scored 18-13 with Zane Gonzalez’s 50-yard field goal, with 8:33 remaining, and the Eagles stopped in 3rd and 2nd on the Eagles 31-yard line.
The Eagles dug 15-6 holes by break, Gregward’s illegal picks removed the TD from the board, and Hearts couldn’t see the ultra-wide open Watkins during the scramble in the second half of the first half.
Fortunately, Jake Elliott rescued the final series with a large field goal of 58 yards, and the Panthers were unable to regain Jason Kelsey’s bad snap in the end zone, limiting safety damage. ..
All the highlights in the first half were from Eagle Defense. Srey made the first of two interceptions. Jabon Hargrave had a bag.
Hearts was 74 yards, 15 out of 24 yards, an average of 4.9 yards miserable.
Darnold threw a five-yard scoring pass into Tommy Tremble and caught the Eagles with his flat feet.
