Sirianni Explains Eagles’ Strategy in Final Drive Against Seahawks

On the Philadelphia Eagles’ last drive against the Seattle Seahawks, quarterback Jalen Hurts fired from the right sideline to A.J. Brown, but it was caught and the game was over. With Philadelphia down by three points with no timeouts, there were plenty of questions about why plays weren’t made to get into the end zone.

Head coach Nick Sirianni shed some light on the play calling and what was ultimately the goal of the game. andquot;Sometimes we have seen that passports can be mixed up there,andquot; Sirianni said. andquot;In that particular game, it was, but if you get a pass, call it and if the team gives you a one-on-one.

Much like what happened on the other side of the ball, they ended up going head-to-head with different things. We had a one-on-one against the Rams.

And you can have a pass error and now you can hit it. We have some of the best receivers in the NFL, so sometimes it’s you and you.andquot; Hurts finished the game with two interceptions and tied his career high with 12 this season.

Both interceptions went on deep throws by Seattle safety Julian Love. The day was not particularly effective for the passing game of the Eagles, where the two leading receivers are Brown with five catches for 56 yards and DeVonta Smith with five for 50 yards. Philadelphia could not take advantage of a Seahawks secondary that lacked Devon Witherspoon and Jamal Adams.

The Eagles have a chance to rebound and make a run for the NFC East title, starting with a game against the New York Giants in Philadelphia on Christmas Day. The game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field and will begin at 4:30 p.m.
