Philadelphia, PA - Offseason NFL analysis can be overdone. Naturally, America’s favorite sport has a place in media 365 days a year, but the instant analyses and “way-too-early” takes that forecast one season as soon as another one ends typically wind up being unnecessary. Right about now though, with the summer beginning, the draft well behind us, and training camp approaching, it feels like a good time to peek in on the NFL. Specifically, we’re taking a look at the outlook for the NFC East.
Philadelphia, PA - It’s a season to be proud of. While the Eagles started the season with an ugly 4-6 record and their hopes of a repeat championship looking bleak, they turned it on the rest of the way to the tune of a 5-1 homestretch and a playoff berth.
Philadelphia, PA - The Philadelphia Eagles and Nick Foles are headed to New Orleans for a rematch with the Saints in the NFC Divisional round following an impressive 16-15 victory over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
Philadelphia, PA - Nick Foles turned into a cult hero immediately after being victorious in the Philadelphia Eagles’ very first Super Bowl win last season, and he accomplishes yet another improbably miracle by leading them into the postseason once again this season.
Philadelphia, PA - The Philadelphia Eagles are getting set to have a rematch against the #1 seed New Orleans Saints in the Big Easy. These two battled in Week 11, with New Orleans embarrassing Philadelphia in a 48-7 rout. The Eagles will get a chance to even the score and punch their ticket to their second straight NFC Championship Game. Seemingly everything has gone right for the Eagles since Nick Foles stepped in for an injured Carson Wentz in Week 15.
Philadelphia, PA - They’re back! The Philadelphia Eagles smothered the Washington Redskins 24-0 on the road to punctuate a strong late-season push. The Chicago Bears downed the Minnesota Vikings that same evening to not only eliminate the Vikings from playoff contention but punch the Eagles’ ticket into the postseason. Philadelphia was rooting for the Bears last week, but now they’re pitted against them in the NFC Wild Card Round. Nick Foles was banged up last week. However, he is slated to play against a ferocious Chicago defense in the windy city. This is maybe the premier matchup of the weekend, and I can’t wait for it to go down this Sunday.
Philadelphia, PA - It all comes down to this. The Philadelphia Eagles survived a fierce battle against the Houston Texans last week to keep pace with the Minnesota Vikings for the 6th seed in the NFC. The Eagles pulled it off thanks to the heroics of Nick Foles and a significantly more dynamic offense.
