There were two things that cheered me up after Sunday’s Eagles loss. First, the Cowboys blew it, as the Cowboys often do. Second, Chip Kelly’s day-after press conference was full of Kelly sarcastic goodness.
The Cowboys had a collapse of historic proportions on Sunday, as they blew a 26-3 lead to the Packers, losing 37-36 to Green Bay and backup quarterback Matt Flynn.
The Eagles could have made things easy on themselves by winning, as they were expected to, in Minnesota on Sunday. Thankfully, the Cowboys also decided to make things more difficult on themselves by blowing a 26-3 lead to the Packers, and losing as well.
DeMarco Murray ran for three touchdowns, backup Lance Dunbar had a career-high 82 yards rushing and the Dallas Cowboys overcame Oakland’s fumble return for a score on the opening kickoff to beat the Raiders 31-24 Thursday.
If the Eagles can take advantage of their newly discovered home cooking, then they could have the upper hand in the schedule breakdown, but a win against the Cowboys is likely going to be a requirement regardless of what else happens.
With the Eagles 6-5 and in first place in the NFC East heading into the bye week, Eagles fans will be keeping a close eye on the Cowboys at Giants game on Sunday.
There was at least one fan in Philadelphia that left Lincoln Financial Field happy on Sunday, Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown.
After Nick Foles’ atrocious 11-29, 80 yard passing performance in Sunday’s 17-3 Eagles loss to the Cowboys, the WIP Morning Show wanted to see if you have seen enough to count Foles out as the future Eagles starting quarterback.
Nick Foles’ stay atop the mountain of Philadelphia sports was a short one. After making people believe he should be the quarterback of the future after his performance against the Tampa Bay Bucs, he made those same people believe he shouldn’t start again this year.
Domonic Brown is not from Philadelphia, so the fact that he’s not an Eagles fan is understandable. He’s not from Dallas either, but that’s beside the point for now.
94WIP host Brian Haddad took over the stations Twitter account for the Eagles battle for first place with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Vick taking in a full practice for the first time this week should be encouraging as the mobile quarterback comes back from a hamstring injury. Although Foles will get the start and the offense has performed well with the second-year quarterback under center, having the possibility of going back to Vick in case of emergency is comforting.
Every week, the Philadelphia Eagles website features a flash cartoon about the weekend’s game. It’s Dallas Cowboys week, so this one is extra special.
Eagles fans are likely to be pretty riled up on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, with the team having won two straight games, and the Cowboys in town with the division lead on the line. But it won’t just be Eagles fans who will be ready for the game.
Michael Vick announced on Thurday, while standing next to Nick Foles, that he would not be playing in Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Vick says that while he heals from a hamstring injury, the team is in good hands with Foles.
