Ertz caught five passes (eight targets) for 38 yards in Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys. Ertz turned in a rare clunker, finishing behind fellow tight end Dallas Goedert in yards (44) and touchdowns (one) despite garnering three extra targets. The latter makes his presence felt at times, but Ertz is still clearly the top tight end in Philly and one of Carson Wentz's most trusted targets. This one can simply be written off as a dud, and Ertz will look to bounce back against the Rams in Week 15. Los Angeles finally has both of its top corners, Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, healthy on the field, so Ertz could be heavily involved in the gameplan if the Eagles choose to attack the middle.
Ertz caught nine of 10 targets for 83 yards in Monday night's 28-13 win over the Redskins. Ertz was his ever-present self in the Eagles passing game, helping the team move the sticks in a variety of ways. In fact, with his nine catches, Ertz set a new franchise record for receptions in a single season, yet still has four games to improve on his total of 93. He'll look to do so in a big way Week 14 versus the Cowboys, who he already caught 14 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns against Week 10.
Ertz caught seven of eight targets for 91 yards in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Giants. Ertz tied the Eagles' single-season record for catches by a tight end with his 81st of the season in the second quarter, finding the end zone from 15 yards out on the play. He went on to shatter that mark as the game went on, bringing his season totals up to 84 catches, 895 yards and six touchdowns. Ertz is putting together one of the greatest tight end campaigns of all time, and his dominance should continue in Week 13 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.
Ertz caught two of three targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 48-7 loss to New Orleans. Coming off a monster 14-catch game in Week 10, Ertz laid an egg on Sunday as nothing much went right for the Eagles. The effort snapped a streak of six straight games in which Ertz either topped 100 yards or scored in each contest. A bad showing against what was supposed to be a weak New Orleans pass defense doesn't change that, but he'll face a tougher test next Sunday against a Giants defense that has been middle-of-the-road against the pass, averaging 245 passing yards per game.
Ertz hauled in 14 catches (16 targets) for 145 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Dallas. Ertz was an absolute beast in this one, setting new season highs in receptions, targets, yards and touchdowns in one fell swoop. The newly acquired Golden Tate (two catches) barely cut into the tight end's targets, and Ertz appears to still be Carson Wentz's most trusted target in key situations. Week 11's matchup with the Saints is shaping up to be a shootout, giving the dynamic tight end the potential to put up another huge game, especially if the Eagles gameplan to attack the middle of the field and away from lockdown corner Marshon Lattimore.
