The Eagles are now 0-2 in the preseason, but who cares? It's the preseason. Tom Brady threw the ball 26 times and Carson Wentz did not play, so what do you expect? 

The Eagles lost 37-20 to the Pats on Thursday night. 

Here are the Eagles' studs and duds from the game. 

STUDS

 

3. Ronald Darby

Ronald Darby had a nice game against the Patriots, coming up with two of the team's five pass deflections. Darby certainly stood out on Thursday night and Merrill Reese agrees

2. Nate Sudfeld

22-39, 312 yards, 3 TD, and 1 INT. It was a pretty good performance from Nate Sudfeld. Through two games, Sudfeld is now 32-53, with 454 yards, 5 TD, 3 INT, and a 96.0 passer rating.

1. Shelton Gibson

Gibson caught five of his six targets for 90 yards and a score. Gibson, a 2017 fifth-round pick, is certainly going to be hard to cut. 

 

DUDS

 

3. Nick Foles

3-9, 44 yards, and a lost fumble that resulted in a touchdown and a strained shoulder. Not Foles' best night. 

2. Wendell Smallwood

The 2016 fifth-round pick is in jeopardy of making the team. Smallwood had four carries for just one yard on Thursday.

1. Halapoulivaati Vaitai​

Big V was beat by Adrian Clayborn on the Nick Foles sack-fumble-touchdown-injury mess. And it wasn't the only block Big V missed last night.
