Report card at the bye


Each week in Birdwatch, the Daily News provides a report card for that day's Eagles game. But as any student or school teacher knows, those individual grades eventually add up.

The Eagles' ultimate report card says they are 3-3, heading into the bye week with the Atlanta Falcons looming on Oct. 26.

Pass offense: B-

Run defense: B

Special teams: B-

Overall: C+
