Monsters get their ‘butt whooped’ by Hawks, 48-22, to remain winless in NFC East
Falcons pass rusher Brandon Graham, with three sacks of Daniel Jones and a 48-22 destruction of the Monsters in his back pocket, shouted to Saquon Barkley in the foyer after Sunday’s victory.
“Hello, Saquon!” Graham said great naturedly as they shook hands. “I told ya’ll I planned to get your butt!”
Graham and Barkley are companions. Those weren’t words that need defending. Be that as it may, how could they be? A battle requires two gatherings to toss blows.
Furthermore, Goliaths players have never conceded as energetically as they did on Sunday that their severe NFC East adversaries were infinitely better.
“We got our butt whooped,” Barkley said.
“Philadelphia is a great group, and we could see today we aren’t where we should be yet,” quarterback Daniel Jones said.
One Philly fan hung a bedsheet over the railing close to the Hawks’ passage that said it far superior:
“12-1. Monsters thought they had a shot. We realized they didn’t.”
MVP competitor Jalen Damages piled up 294 absolute yards and three TDs. The Falcons ran for 253 yards drove by running back Miles Sanders’ 144 yards and two TDs.
The game finished with Monster executioner Boston Scott scoring a surging TD in trash time and lots of Birds fans cheering in the last 10 columns of a vacant arena.
FOX switched the game off on the West Coast and sliced to the Cowpokes and Texans. Reinforcement quarterbacks Gardner Minshew and Tyrod Taylor both played.
The Monsters (7-5-1) presently limp into next Sunday night’s visit to the Washington Officer (7-5-1) with a season finisher compartment basically on the line.
“We need to win this f — in’ game,” edge rusher Jihad Ward said. “This is a should win.”
Yet, the Goliaths have hit their absolute bottom with the stakes at their most noteworthy.
Brian Daboll’s group is 0-3-1 in its last four games and 1-4-1 in its last six. The Goliaths stay winless in the NFC East at 0-3-1, including three victory misfortunes to the Ranchers (two) and the Birds.
“We got beat conveniently,” Daboll said.
They have never completed a season winless in their division, per Elias Sports Department. They have two additional opportunities to dominate a NFC East match: next Sunday at Washington or in Week 18 at the Falcons.
Barkley, who was restricted to 20 snaps, 11 contacts and 48 yards in the wake of getting a late-week X-ray on his neck, basically guaranteed he’d play more against the Commandants.
“I anticipate the following an open door, and I’m presumably almost certain I’ll have … a greater job for the following game,” Barkley said.
Barkley uncovered that he had supported a stinger in Wednesday’s training, despite the fact that Daboll had said on Friday that Barkley was not harmed practically speaking and chalked up his physical issue to “only a long season.”
He said it occurred on “only a standard play.”
“Gotten the ball, labeling off, somewhat turned out of it and something just erupted in my neck,” Barkley said. “Be that as it may, hello, everything occurs which is as it should be. I’m simply glad that I’m solid. I had the option to go today. I would have wanted to play more.”
He played his last snap on Daniel Jones’ 1-yard TD run with 5:42 left in the second from last quarter. Yet, he was determined that he was not on a pitch count and that he might have dealt with more. He really got a piece worked up while looking at being removed from the game.
“Mentor let me know we planned to go with [Gary Brightwell and [Matt] Breida. I just attempted to be a decent partner and be strong,” Barkley said. “I truly don’t have any idea what’s the equilibrium. In the event that I don’t play enough, I need to respond to those inquiries. On the off chance that I play excessively, I must response those inquiries. I’m not exactly straightforwardly coming at you but rather I mean, I don’t have the foggiest idea, what is it that you all truly expect from me to reply on that? It was important for the approach.
“Clearly I would have wanted to have played much more,” he added. “The motivation behind why I didn’t play as much was not a direct result of my neck. The Falcons played perfect. We got our butt whooped. What’s more, we just got to improve collectively. It begins with the pioneers and it begins with myself.”
The uplifting news for the Goliaths is they don’t play the Birds next Sunday. The awful news is they abruptly have no responses on the best way to win.
“It’s December football,” Ward said. “It’s about who the f- – – want[s] it more. Nobody will stay there and hand it to you. How awful do you need it?”
