Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 18 vs SEA (6 / 25 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)

Scott was an integral part of the Eagles offense yet again in their playoff loss to Seattle with Jordan Howard and most of the wide receivers out of the lineup. Scott showed burst to the edge on his two runs of note, both for more than 10 yards. Scott added a run-after-the-catch-infused reception for more than 20 yards through the air. Scott was also stuffed on a third-down run in field goal range later in the game. Scott has showed well in 2019 after fading to the NFL fringe earlier in his career. The jitterbug is likely to find a role in 2020.

2019 Week 17 vs NYG (19 / 54 / 3 rush, 6 / 4 / 84 / 0 rec)

Scott's impressive late-season run of impact continued against the Giants as Miles Sanders missed more than two quarters with an ankle injury and Scott surged to feature back status. Scott had two eye-popping receptions with a one-hander on a chunk screen gain and later breaking tackles on a screen and nearly scoring for 30+ yards. Scott had two short-range touchdowns on the ground and added a broken tackle red zone score for the hat trick. Scott's low center of gravity and two-way production has been a shot in the arm for an Eagles offense searching for playmakers with their wide receiver injuries this season and Zach Ertz and Miles Sanders specifically this week.

2019 Week 16 vs DAL (3 / 12 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 7 / 0 rec)

Scott saw only nine touches as Miles Sanders stole the show for the Eagles backfield with another high-level game. Scott saw six targets but was stuffed on all but one reception. On a positive note, Scott had two quality kick returns this week as the Eagles secured the home divisional win and advantage heading into the season finale.

2019 Week 15 vs WAS (6 / 26 / 0 rush, 7 / 7 / 39 / 0 rec)

Scott remained productive with the secondary role to Miles Sanders as Jordan Howard was inactive against Washington. Scott fumbled early in the game (the Eagles recovered), but consistently made positive plays otherwise. Scott converted two third-down plays in the game and was outstanding in the screen game with explosion on the opening yards of his touches.

2019 Week 14 vs NYG (10 / 59 / 1 rush, 6 / 6 / 69 / 0 rec)

With no Jordan Howard and Jay Ajayi playing a minimal role, Scott was a hot hand in the Eagles' running back rotation and saw featured touches when Miles Sanders missed a section of the second half with cramps. Scott had a career game on 16 touches, showing dynamic movement in space and adding nice pad level on a goal line touchdown run. Scott juked a defender on a swing route reception and showed patience and vision on a 15-yard screen. The lone missed opportunity for Scott amidst his highlight performance was being stuffed on third-and-short. Washington offers another exploitable matchup for the Eagles running backs in Week 15.

2019 Week 11 vs NE (7 / 26 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Scott elevated to the primary backup spot against the Patriots with Jordan Howard missing the game. Scott was held in check as a runner outside of a 12-yard run, exhibiting a nice cut away from the defense. Scott did add a long defensive pass interference penalty beyond the box score as a receiver.

Eagles | Philly ousted in Wild Card round (Sun Jan 5, 07:49 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Josh McCown completed 18-of-24 passes for 174 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in place of the injured QB Carson Wentz (head) in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Jan. 5. RB Miles Sanders (ankle) shook off an ankle injury to rack up a game-best 69 rushing yards on 14 attempts while adding three grabs for eight yards. RB Boston Scott ran for 25 yards on six attempts with 23 yards on three catches. TE Dallas Goedert had seven catches for 73 yards, while TE Zach Ertz had two catches for 44 yards on four targets. WR Greg Ward Jr. was the top receiver with three receptions for 24 yards.

Our View: Once Carson Wentz was bounced from the game with a concussion, the Eagles chances of winning dropped...although they were in it until the end. Wentz had made it through the regular season for a full 16 games for the first time in his career but was knocked from this game after about nine minutes. It's an unfortunate end for an Eagles team that had to fight through a ton of injuries on both sides of the ball just to make it to the postseason.
