He also had two receptions for just five yards. He had two drops, but he wasn’t the only Eagles receiver to not be able to catch the ball.
While Murray received the majority of the carries, he couldn’t find much rushing yards, especially after left tackle Jason Peters left.
He went for more than a 100 yards for the first time in his Eagles career last week.
With the Eagles in the red zone, he only had two carries within the 10-yard line. Yet, he couldn’t convert and score a touchdown.
He has failed to be the back that he was last year in the first few weeks in Chip Kelly‘s system. The team will have some work to do during the bye week and he’ll face his old team, the Dallas Cowboys, at AT&T Stadium in two weeks.
Back-up running back Ryan Mathews has been impressive while Murray was out. It’s not clear why Matthews did not receive the bulk of the carries, especially when he’s going to produce.
