PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s Sam Bradford week in Philadelphia!
The 3-2 Eagles will host Bradford and the 5-0 Vikings on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Lincoln Financial Field. With a lot going on right now with the Eagles, here are the top seven stories of the week.
Fletcher Cox had his first tackle-less game since 2013. Malcolm Jenkins was the victim of two Redskins’ touchdown passes. They both said they need to play better.
The Eagles are going to be without their starting defensive tackle and one of their best run defenders for, likely, a few weeks.
Former Eagles Pro Bowl right tackle Jon Runyan knows a thing or two about playing the position. He was on 94WIP and talked about Big V, despite a tough first career game last week, did not make many technical and physical mistakes.
Schwartz addressed the media for the first time this week on Thursday, and he certainly didn’t sound scared of Sam Bradford and the Vikings’ offense saying “they’re not afraid to check down” and Bradford is “not the most mobile guy in the world.”
If you listen to what Eagles fans are saying on social media, there aren’t going to many boos for Bradford on Sunday. About 70-percent of fans, according to 94WIP Twitter polls, root for Bradford and will not boo him on Sunday.
Wilbon said on his show Pardon the Interruption, that we overrated Wentz after his 3-0 start. Didinger said, no. Wilbon is wrong.
Reese isn’t the biggest Bradford fan in the world, but his point is let’s make it as tough as possible for Bradford on Sunday. The Eagles need a win.
