Though the Eagles played well, they didn’t win without him, further highlighting his importance.

Gardner Minshew is the Eagles backup quarterback.

Minshew started two games during the 2022 regular season, during which he threw for 663 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions on a 58% completion rate.
