Carson Wentz, Eagles receivers still struggling with chemistry in Giants loss | Jeff McLane

Greg Ward, Jalen Reagor, Travis Fulgham and Alshon Jeffery caught just a combined 10 of 21 targets for 94 yards.

Safety Jabrill Peppers confirmed the basic coverage, but he also said that the Giants did more disguising pre-snap, which may have confounded the Eagles quarterback more than in their first meeting three weeks ago.

But John Hightower has been featured since Week 1, especially in the deep passing game, and the fifth-round rookie spent most of Sunday watching from the sidelines.

The Eagles' personnel decisions at the position have been schizophrenic since the offseason, and the usage of veterans like DeSean Jackson and Jeffery vs. the youngsters has been an extension of that dichotomy.

But general manager Howie Roseman and Pederson seem delusional about their chances beyond a virtual meaningless division title.

Roseman can be faulted for not acquiring elite receivers like DeAndre Hopkins or Stefon Diggs who were available to trade, or for not signing a free agent like Robby Anderson.
