Eagles struggling to stop ground game
The sudden emergence of RB Rudi Johnson has essentially sealed Corey Dillon's fate in Cincinnati.
During that time, the Eagles gave up only 341 yards on 130 carries with an average of 2.6 yards per carry. But in the last six games, the front seven has been noticeably more generous. Starting with the Giants in mid-October, Philadelphia's defense has surrendered 985 yards on the ground on only 178 carries with an average of 5.5 yards per carry.
