Philadelphia, PA - It’s that time again. The middle of November is when crunch time begins for NFL teams. Contenders are separated from pretenders, the playoff picture slowly molds into place, and players make their final statements to their team management before the offseason. At 5-4, the Philadelphia Eagles are afloat in the race but have a ways to go if they want to play January football for a third straight season.
Philadelphia, PA - The Philadelphia Eagles picked up a convincing and much-needed win last week in Buffalo. The Philly defense did a great job containing the Bills’ offense, while a two-headed monster emerged in the form of Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders to help bolster the running game.
Philadelphia, PA - Eagles fans everywhere can always get excited for a Philly vs. Dallas game, especially one in the middle of the season with first place in the NFC East on the line. Both teams enter at pretty disappointing 3-3 records, a surprise for two teams that were expected to contend for the Lombardi this season.
Philadelphia, PA - The Great Wall of Philadelphia rose again. Say what you will about how the Eagles had a hard time stopping Aaron Rodgers or Davante Adams on Thursday, but the Eagles defense was very clutch in the biggest of moments at Lambeau. Philly managed to stand up the Packers twice on the goal line, stopping eight total plays in the fourth quarter from inside the ten-yard line.
Philadelphia, PA - Well, it can’t get much worse than that. The 37-10 loss against the Cowboys was humiliating. Philadelphia set a goal to fly out of the gate and even elected to receive the ball after winning the coin toss - a rare decision by Doug Pederson. Rather than set a positive tone, they set the stage for a lopsided night, turning the football over on the first two possessions of the game.
Philadelphia, PA - Is Carson Wentz really the future? Why aren’t they fixing the secondary? Is Fletcher Cox still a Pro-Bowler? Those are just a few of the questions that have been surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles during the early part of this 2019 season.
