The Philadelphia Eagles have been getting creative in an attempt to fix their struggling offense.

Head coach Doug Pederson has given up some of his offensive play-calling duties to assistants in recent games, sources told Jeff McLane of The Inquirer.

Philadelphia's passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Press Taylor has called plays on multiple occasions recently and could be given more responsibility moving forward, McLane adds.

The 3-7-1 Eagles are currently on a three-game skid and haven't scored more than 17 points since Week 8. Overall, the team is averaging 21.5 points per game and 4.9 yards per play, ranking 25th and 29th in the NFL, respectively.

Meanwhile, quarterback Carson Wentz is completing just 58.1% of his pass attempts for 16 touchdowns against a league-high 15 interceptions. Pederson said earlier this week he won't bench Wentz at the moment.

Senior offensive assistant Rich Scangarello has been responsible for calling plays in two-minute situations since the beginning of the season. Philadelphia opted not to hire an offensive coordinator this season after firing Mike Groh in January.
