Eagles' Justice penalty-free

Time for our weekly breakdown of the Eagles' penalties.

Through three weeks, the Birds are tied for 12th in penalties (19) and 20th in penalty yards (141).

Against the Chiefs, they had just three penalties for 20 yards, a huge improvement from the previous week against the Saints.

The bad news? Two of those penalties came on special teams.

Three offensive linemen -- Winston Justice, Max Jean-Gilles, and Jamaal Jackson are penalty-free through three weeks. That's particularly impressive for Justice, who is in his first season as a starter at the right tackle position.

The Eagles' offense went penalty-free against the Chiefs.

Here's a look at where the flags have been thrown through three games:

Number of penalties

Jason Peters - 2
DeSean Jackson - 2
Nick Cole - 2
Stacy Andrews - 2
Juqua Parker - 1
Quintin Demps - 1
Sean Jones - 1
Chris Clemons - 1
Joselio Hanson - 1
Leonard Weaver - 1
Tracy White - 1
Darren Howard - 1
Moise Fokou - 1
Eldra Buckley - 1

Note: The Eagles' defense was called for an offsides in Week 1 (officially 6 yards), but it was not attributed to any one player. Also, penalties that were declined were not included in the breakdown.
