It’s been a long time coming, but the Eagles were finally able to snap a ten-game losing streak at Lincoln Financial Field Sunday.
The Eagles now own sole possession of first place in the NFC East, after a 24-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense that made a big splash in his coaching debut might be even better now.
Eagles WR Riley Cooper has come a long way since leaving the Philadelphia Eagles for three days after using a racial slur.
There will be a lot on the line Sunday at the Linc when the Eagles face the Redskins. Just ask anyone but the Eagles.
The Eagles are keepers of a well-publicized ten game losing streak at Lincoln Financial Field. It’s been over a calendar year since the Eagles won a home game. Oddsmakers say that’s likely to change.
Temple head football coach Matt Rhule got an up close look at Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater this year. Though Bridgewater has been impressive, and at this point is widely considered to be the first quarterback taken in the 2014 NFL Draft if he makes himself available, Rhule says he’d still take Nick Foles.
As the Eagles have battled back to even their record of wins and losses, the discussion on what to do with the quarterback situation has evolved from locking in on a top 2014 NFL Draft prospect to the idea that the team can realistically move forward with Nick Foles leading the offense. Much of the decision-making for the offseason plans will be determined by what Foles does for the rest of this season.
He joined 6 other NFL quarterbacks who have thrown 7 touchdown passes in a game, becoming the second Eagle to do it.
“Chip Kelly challenged us after the game,” said Jackson. “He challenged us to have a great week of practice so we could do what we need to do and get a win in front of our home crowd. They deserve it.”
Chip Kelly stated from the outset that he’s always been a Nick Foles fan—and the Eagles’ coach is finding out even more about his quarterback.
The Eagles got another solid game out of their offense and the defense handled a weakened opposing offense. This is what good teams do, but the Eagles still have some work to do before being counted as a good team in the NFC.
Nick Foles didn’t throw seven touchdowns this time, but he did find some imaginative ways to get the ball into the end zone against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy is expecting his defense to rise to the occasion.
As improbable as it sounds, the best quarterback on the field in Sunday’s game between the Packers and Eagles likely won’t be Aaron Rodgers or Michael Vick.
