BALTIMORE — Wide receiver Jordan Matthews summed up the Eagles’ final offensive play of the game with one simple word.

“Unfortunate.”

After Carson Wentz ran for a four-yard touchdown with four seconds left in the game, Doug Pederson decided to call a timeout. The first-year head coach sent his rookie quarterback and the offense back out onto the field for the win, but after Wentz’s pass to Matthews was tipped and dropped incomplete, the Eagles fell to the Ravens, 27-26.

The Eagles’ 24-15 win over the Falcons furthered one inescapable fact about Philadelphia this season: They’re a completely different team at home than they are on the road. They’re 4-0 at the Linc, but 1-4 in away games as their average point differential shifts from +17 per game to -1 outside of Philadelphia.

“When you’re on the road, you try to press just a little bit,” Doug Pederson said. “You try to get that quick, early lead and take the crowd out of the game. You do some things that are a little uncharacteristic of what you do at home. We just can’t do that. We got to stick to the game plan. We got to approach it much like a home game and trust the players, trust the plan. Let the game come to us a little bit, as opposed to trying to make something happen.

“We got to handle the crowd noise better. There are quite a few factors we’ve got to address and clean up going into these road games.” Read more »

While Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz appeared to finally get into a rhythm on Sunday, the rookie quarterback still has some work to do with another one of his big targets: Dorial Green-Beckham. Despite five targets against the Giants, the 23-year-old receiver caught zero passes for the first time this season as he and Wentz didn’t look to be on the same page.

“It’s tough, but it’s about putting in that extra time. I feel like since I’ve only been here for a good two months, the timing is going to be off,” Green-Beckham said. “But we know it starts at practice and carries over to the game. Each and every week, we have to work on those little details.” Read more »
