It was a pretty woeful day again for the BC offense, but this 8 yard shimmy in to the end zone by Jeff Smith was the Eagles' one major highlight, and gave BC fans some hope as BC pulled to within three points with a whole quarter of play remaining. Unfortunately Smith was injured on this play and was unable to return; his status is unknown at this time.
"Stat of the game: 30. That’s the combined number of tackles for loss in this game, including a whopping 14 sacks. Neither QB was given any time to throw, both run games were stuffed repeatedly, and the defensive lines simply dominated. This wasn’t a complete surprise given that both offensive lines had struggled and both defenses were strong, but the sheer number of negative plays made for a long afternoon on both sidelines."
We head to the fourth with the Eagles in striking range of the Cardinals. Jeff Smith is on the sideline, but the defense has played great. Can the Eagles pull out the victory and end their three-game losing streak?
Lamar Jackson provided the lone points of the first quarter as BC struggled to move the ball with regularity and efficiency. Steven Daniels leading the way for the BC defense, while Kamrin Moore was carted off following an injury late in the frame. Louisville will threaten in BC territory to start the 2nd.
