Well, this list will be difficult if you put how many points the Eagles scored into consideration. Hey…at least the defense did “outstanding”, as Doug Pederson called it.
RB Josh Adams – The undrafted rookie only got four carries but still registered 44 rushing yards, averaging 8.2 yards per run.
WR DeAndre Carter – Last week I said DeAndre Carter is arguably the most underrated player on the team, and what he did on Thursday night proves that. He had four receptions for 73 yards, averaging 18.2 yards per catch.
This is a huge night to make an impression for someone like a DeAndre Carter, who makes this catch on an out-and-up. With uncertainty surrounding the 6th WR spot, impressive showings his final two games could sneak him on the team. pic.twitter.com/B4ccIauPSx

S Corey Graham – Eagles re-signed Graham for a reason. He had led the Eagles in tackles (5) while having one assisted tackle.
LB Jordan Hicks – Hicks probably had the most exciting play of the night:

DE Michael Bennett and DT Fletcher Cox – You could feel the presence of Bennett and Cox on the field. Together they registered three tackles and a sack, while being in for a limited amount of time.
CB Avonte Maddox – Maddox looked a lot better on Thursday night than he did last week against the Patriots. He maintained decent coverage and also hauled in a interception thrown by first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Baker Mayfield.

DC Jim Schwartz – Who said defensive coordinators couldn’t be winners? Schwartz’s unit only allowed five points, between Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and Tyrod Taylor, running back Carlos Hyde and Nick Chubb, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway, as well as tight end David Njoku.
QB Nick Foles – Despite Super Bowl MVP’s 76% pass completions, he made too many mistakes – two fumbles and two interceptions.

QB Nate Sudfeld – Sudfeld had a big decline since last week. Against the Browns, he played the whole second half and went just 52% completed passes, and only 72 yards with no touchdowns.
RB Matt Jones – Jones had a chance to start over with the Eagles by signing him, but he failed on doing that … so far. He was a reason for one of the turnovers against the Browns.
WR Mike Wallace – Eagles newly acquired wide receiver Mike Wallace seemed good during practice and training camp. But he had almost no action on Thursday night, for the decent amount of playing time he got.
LT Hal Vaitai – Despite Vaitai’s good performance during the Eagles Super Bowl run last season, he looks like his 2016-self again (which isn’t good).
K Jake Elliott – The Eagles finally had a chance to get on the scoreboard during a field goal opportunity, but Elliott missed the 33 yard attempt.
OLC Jeff Stoutland – The offensive line’s problem wasn’t just Vaitai, it was also Lane Johnson and Stefen Wisniewski. Maybe something changed at practice, Stoutland?

Next week, Eagles really need to win against the New York Jets, I really don’t want to see them go 0-4 in the preseason after winning a Super Bowl.
