Philadelphia Eagles Prepare To Face Drew Brees

Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.

Eagles Prepare For Saints Wild Card Battle

Drew Brees will be much more successful against the Eagles defense than back-up Kyle Orton was in the final game of the regular season. But, if the Eagles can knock Brees off his game, then the Saints could quickly run out of options to try and keep up wit the Eagles offense.

Different Paths, Same Goal: NFC East Comes Down To Eagles, Cowboys

Forget everything about what happened in the earlier meeting between the Eagles and Cowboys. The Eagles were in the midst of a quarterback revolving door between Nick Foles and Mike Vick and had not quite found their offensive identity. That has changed now. The Eagles offense is firing on all cylinders and should be able to play well against this Dallas defense that really struggles to stop much of anything.

Eagles Didn’t Play Like Favorite Against Vikings

For the first time, this Eagles team was faced with the position of being the team that should win and had no logical reason to lose. To the surprise of some, the Eagles played like a team unfamiliar with taking on the role of favorite, and that inexperience may have come in to play.

Heisman Watch: Jameis Winston The Slam Dunk, Five Others Playing For Second

The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.

Healthy Vikings Could Be Real Threat To Eagles Playoff Goals

While the Eagles are making a push for an NFC East Division championship, the Vikings are starting to make early NFL Draft plans and looking ahead to 2014. But the Vikings cannot be taken lightly, especially if Christian Ponder is back and Adrian Peterson is healthy.

LeSean McCoy Delivers A+ Performance As Eagles Plow Through Lions

Credit Chip Kelly and his staff for committing to an offensive style that at times is not what they feel is most comfortable. Sticking to the power running game and letting the offensive line set the tone up front proved to be the best decision Kelly could have made. It helps to have one of the best running backs in the league, LeSean McCoy, blowing through the holes opened up in front of him.

Philadelphia Eagles Defense Is Gellin’ At Right Time

The Eagles are far from playing the level of defense adored by Buddy Ryan zealots, but this Eagles defense has held six of their last seven opponents to 20 points or fewer (Arizona scored 21). In today’s NFL, those numbers will give teams more than a chance to win much more often than not. It has not happened by accident, as the Eagles defense has continued to gel together following a coaching change and a roster makeover.

Philadelphia Eagles Rookie Earl Wolff Out Vs. Cardinals

Injuries have been a far smaller concern this season for the Eagles compared to last season. Perhaps that is a significant factor in the turnaround on the field in addition to a new coach breathing new life in to the franchise.
