The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Baltimore Ravens is a grimy, hard fought contest. Somehow, they overcame turning the ball over 4 times, mostly due to the play of Quarterback Mike Vick, and the defense. I will give you my players of the game, on the offense and defense.
Offensive Player of the Week
Brent Celek TE: Celek was Vick’s go to guy all game as he torched the Ravens for 8 catches and 157 yards. He exposed the weakness in the Baltimore defense, especially after safety Bernie Pollard left the game with an injury. The Eagles will need him to be this effective in the middle of the field all season.
Defensive Player of the Week
Demeco Ryans MLB: Ryans had a quiet first half as the Ravens ran the ball right down the Eagles throats, but he was a man possessed in the second half as he led the Eagles defense and helped Philadelphia win it’s second game. 7 tackles(6 solo), 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 interception. He has been as advertised over the first two games of his Eagles career.
