The Philadelphia Eagles are 2-3 after a 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship Game.
The glow surrounding the Eagles' Super Bowl title has quickly dimmed.
"Were 2-3 because we're playing bad," Chris Long said. "It's one and the same. Right now we are playing like we suck. That's the reality. We can say we're better than this all we want. But unless we play better, we're not."
Coming off a torn ACL, Carson Wentz returned to the field in Week 3. The Eagles are 1-2 with him as the starter.
"We've got to take a look at ourselves in the mirror," Wentz said. "Three straight penalties. ... Little mistakes like that are just killing us. We're playing like we're a young rookie team and we're not."
