Eagles vs. Ravens final score: Observations from Philadelphia’s loss to Baltimore, 30 to 28
Well, the Philadelphia Eagles’ Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens could’ve been worse. They fought back after a very poor start. But it ultimately wasn’t enough.
The Eagles are now 1-4-1 on the season.

• Wentz threw a little too wide of an open Ertz to bring up 3rd-and-6. The third down play involved Wentz ...
