Sunday’s win in Oakland was the most complete team victory of the season for the Eagles. You can never get too carried away with one game, but this was a flat out dominant performance by the Eagles and perhaps a glimpse once again as to what the future could be like with Chip Kelly in charge.
The Eagles’ offense emerged to smash the Oakland Raiders 49-20 Sunday, behind an NFL-tying seven touchdown passes from Nick Foles.
The quarterback situation has been a constant story for the Eagles this season. This week Nick Foles worked his way back and practiced in full practices this week. With Foles available the Eagles avoid having to start rookie Matt Barkley.
The Eagles offensive woes of last week bled into this week, resulting in a 15-7 loss in a crossroads game.
This one stings. The Eagles offense folded against a Cowboys defense that was vulnerable and incapable of taking advantage of a nice game put in by the defense.
The distorted reflection the Eagles projected as an NFC East contender came thundering down in a dusty heap by the handicapped Dallas Cowboys in a woeful offensive performance that spelled a 17-3 Dallas victory.
The Eagles just made it two in a row.
Things did not start off well but the Eagles put together the so-called full team effort. The offense started slowly but ended up having a really good game. The defense took their lumps but got past them to do their part as well.
Nick Foles’ third touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter sealed what had been a taut game in an Eagles’ 31-20 victory over the winless Buccaneers on Sunday.
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been named NFC Offensive Player Of The Week for his performance in the Eagles 36-21 win over the New York Giants.
DeSean Jackson expects to be challenged by Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis on Sunday. DeSean Jackson expects to get the best of that matchup.
Chris updates the latest on the continuing government shutdown, discusses the Eagles win over the Giants and offers Governor Corbett some advice with his comments on gay marriage. He also talks to Michael Bronstein and Colin Hanna on the Monday Morning Matchup and Ray Didinger from CSN Philly.
The Eagles should not get too carried away with picking up their second win in a game that saw the Giants drop to 0-5 on the season, but the defense made plays, special teams did their part and Nick Foles proved why the Eagles felt a need to keep him on the roster despite using Mike Vick as the starter.
Nick Foles gets the biggest gold star of the week, for giving us the QB controversy we need.
The Eagles snapped a three-game losing skid, to improve to 2-3 with their 36-21 victory over the horrible New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
