The Eagles’ locker room was a dejected place when Sunday turned into Monday and the players started to realize the stunning reality of a 27-20 loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys. What pained and perplexed them even more was that they have felt that way too often during a season in danger of escaping them.
The Eagles’ hopes of turning into a contender during the final two months might have been crushed as the team returned from the bye week with a devastating loss that may have confirmed what they are this year. They’ve talked after previous losses this season about needing to look in the mirror but, at 4-5, they might soon realize they won’t like the answer. Coach Doug Pederson said the Eagles must “change who we are” if the rest of the season is going to be different.
“We’ve just got to believe, despite the evidence,” tight end Zach Ertz said. “That’s the only message I think we can come up with. … The evidence says we’re 4-5 and we’re not as good as we thought we were going to be. But we can’t lose the faith.”
