Week Three Awards For The Eagles

In Week Three, the Philadelphia Eagles (3-0) defeated the Washington Commanders(1-2). The final score of 24-8 does not tell the story of how dominant the Eagles were in this game. The offense started slow but picked up everything in the second quarter. The defense did not falter throughout the game. That said, some Fly Eagles Nation hardware is due before we go into Week Four.

The awards are Most Valuable Player, Offensive Player of the Game, Defensive Player of the Game, Special Teams Player of the Game, and Rookie of the Game. A player can get two or more awards and may repeat as many times as needed.

Most Valuable Player- Devonta Smith

Devonta Smith, or Skinny Batman, had a career day for the Eagles. Smith put on the best performance by an Eagles receiver this season and he had the three biggest offensive plays of the game. Smith reeled in a 45-yard sideline catch from Jalen Hurts, leading to the first game points via a field goal by Jake Elliot. To end the half, Smith had 61 yards on the final drive.

His first big play here was a huge catch over two Washington defenders which put the Eagles inside the five. On a 4th and goal and no time, Hurts put up a jump ball to Smith who made a great catch, pushing the lead to 24-0. Smith’s impact in Week Three was huge for the offense and chose a good time to have the best game of his career. Hopefully, he can build on this performance to take this team to new heights.

Devonta Smith’s stat line: 12 targets, eight catches, 169 yards, one touchdown.

Offensive Player of the Game: Jalen Hurts

The NFC Offensive Player of the month in September is a fitting choice. Hurts continued his hot streak with three touchdown passes to three different receivers and pushed the ball downfield. Some passes were left for the receivers to make a play but that’s a part of the growth as a passer. Many quarterbacks don’t throw the jump balls to avoid turnovers but he trusts his guys will make the plays. Another stellar performance from QB1 in Week Three.

Jalen Hurts’ stat line: 22/35, 340 yards, and three touchdowns.

Defensive Player of the Game- Brandon Graham

The NFC Defensive Player of the Week Three is Fly Eagles Nation’s pick as well. Brandon Graham was disruptive all game and did not make it easy on his former QB. He and the rest of the defensive line had their best game of the season. Jonathan Gannon continues to play his way into the heart of the fans with his aggressive performance allowing Graham to be explosive.

Brandon Graham’s stat line: Six tackles, Four solos, Two TFL, 2.5 sacks, Five QB hits, and a pass defended.

Special Teams Player of the Game: Jake Elliot

This was another day in the office for Jake Elliot in Week Three. The former Pro Bowler did his usual, hitting on a field goal from 32 yards out and going 3/3 on his PATs. He moved to 3/4 on field goals this season. His only miss was a blocked kick against Minnesota.

Rookie of the Game: Jordan Davis

The stat line isn’t the prettiest, but Jordan Davis has a known presence on the field. He racked up two tackles and a pass-defended. Davis nearly got his first sack on Carson Wentz, but his pressure led Wentz to step up and get sacked by an Eagles teammate. Week Three was the best game by a rookie so far by Davis.
