Eagles QB Mark Sanchez Hurt WR Jordan Matthews
Matthews was laid out by Dolphins DB Jamar Taylor when trying to catch a poorly thrown ball by Mark Sanchez.
Sunday’s interconference battle in the City of Brotherly Love between the 4-4 Miami Dolphins and 4-4 Philadephia Eagles produced a Dolphins win. Both teams were trying to get their seasons back on track. The hard-hitting game featured a safety, wacky touchdown receptions, and unfortunately, another injury for Eagles QB Sam Bradford. Bradford faced pressure all game and was left the game after a big hit in the third quarter. Backup Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez entered the game to try to lead the team to a victory. But the move didn’t go well. Sanchez’s poor play nearly cost Jordan Matthews his head.
Matthews a Victim of Mark Sanchez Poor Play
The new Eagles quarterback of the Mark Sanchez played poorly in the game, again. But, what’s worse, Sanchez (Mr. Butt Fumble) nearly ended the career of wide receiver Jordan Matthews. As Sanchez was trying to lead the Eagles down the field, he threw an “out route” to Matthews along the sideline. Dolphins defensive back Jamar Taylor zeroed in on Matthews and delivered a big hit, negating the first down. The vicious tackle left Matthews motionless on the field for several moments. Matthews laid motionless on the field for several moments. His condition did not look good. Apparently, Jordan Matthews only had the breath knocked out of him by Taylor. But Matthews was forced to leave the game.
The Last Drive
Though the Eagles needed only a field goal to win the game, their final series was a disaster. Wide receiver Miles Austin looked the wrong way on Sanchez’s first pass. DeMarco Murray dropped the next one. A throw deflected off the hands of Zach Ertz. On a second-and-goal from the nine-yard line, Sanchez looked for Austin again. Dolphins’ Rashad Jones picked it off in the end zone and ran it out of the end zone to the four-yard line. Eagles lose 20-19.
