It was a mixed bag for rookie Wide Receiver and Punt Returner Damaris Johnson. With Jeremy Maclin injured, Johnson had some big shoes to fill. He finished with 84 yards on five catches. However, he also committed a costly turnover early in the game, fumbling the ball on a punt return.

Once again, turnovers were the big story. The Eagles continue to acknowledge the problem during interviews and press conferences but for the third week in a row, it doesn’t seem like they’re doing much to fix it. Today’s loss proved that they can’t rely on their talent to compensate for the carelessness.
