Breakdown: Eagles penalties


After two weeks, the Eagles have accumulated 16 penalties for 121 yards.

Only seven NFL teams have been called for more.

Each week, we'll take a look at the Eagles' penalty breakdown for the season. What players are constantly costing the Eagles? Is it mainly the offense, defense or special teams? And so on.

This is the first time so I didn't get too in-depth. It's just meant to take a quick look at the penalties. If there is something more specific you'd like to see, e-mail me or comment below.

Here are the numbers after the first two weeks.

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

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