In his post-game press conference, Jenkins revealed that the Eagles made up a play on the sideline at the end of the game because they were tired of watching Odell Beckham Jr. run wild through their secondary. The Eagles had Jalen Mills play man-to-man on OBJ, while the rest of the defense played zone, similar to a basketball concept called "box-and-one," which is designed to contain star players.


Why did it take all game long to realize we needed to have a spy on OBJ?

Not that it mattered, he still would've had the game winner on a 35 yard bomb in a prevent situation if Eli didn't overthrow him. Maybe our players should try out schemes that aren't from basketball.....
