The Philadelphia Eagles dropped to 1-2 on the season yesterday after a stunning loss to the Detroit Lions. Arguably the biggest story of the game for Philadelphia was the literal drops.

Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz had 17 incompletions - seven of which came from dropped balls. Wide receiver Nelson Agholor was one of the biggest culprits, catching eight of the 12 passes thrown his way with several big drops.

Agholor was so bad that he was even called out by a group of fans who saved children from a burning building.

After the 27-24 loss to Detroit, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson made it very clear what needs to be fixed.

"Teaching points? Catch the ball."

The 2019 season has gotten off to a very rough start for the Eagles. They only narrowly beat Washington in their season opener before losing to Atlanta on the road in Week 2.

Carson Wentz has looked solid - as he always does when he's healthy - but the defense has struggled to get stops. As a result, dropping a ton of passes can't help an offense that needs to play catch-up.

The Eagles will have to get the drops straightened out quickly though. They head to Lambeau Field this Thursday to take on the Green Bay Packers.
