Philadelphia, PA - By some miracle, the Philadelphia Eagles still sit atop the NFC East at 3-5-1. While they do lead the division, the Eagles have looked awful. Their wins have been ugly and their losses have been even uglier. This was very true against the New York Giants, who did look impressive on both sides of the football and beat the birds handily, 27-17.
Philadelphia, PA - For the third straight game, the Eagles get to play within their own division. They have enjoyed two straight wins against the Giants and the Cowboys and just received a well-timed bye week. This has certainly been the most optimistic time of this season, as Philly can get healthy, and could even break even on the season at 4-4-1.
Philadelphia, PA - The Ertz Family Foundation has launched a brand-new campaign to help fight hunger known as 'Holiday Touchdowns for Meals.' In partnership with The Athletes' Corner, the foundation will provide thousands of meals to families in the Philadelphia region during the holiday season.
Philadelphia, PA - The Philadelphia Eagles finally can put a tally in the win column after a 25-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara. It was far from pretty or glamorous, but the Eagles did just enough to get the win. They’re even first place in the NFC East to boot, albeit with one win, but first place is first place.
Philadelphia, PA - The Philadelphia Eagles improved to 3-4-1 after a win against the Dallas Cowboys, but even with a win, there’s still much cause for concern. The Eagles entered as favorites on Sunday night at home, primarily because of Dallas’s well-documented struggles.
Philadelphia, PA - I don’t think even the most pessimistic of Eagles fans could have predicted a start like this. It’s far from ideal, but it’s not as terrible as one might think. For one, the NFC East is laughably bad. The Washington Football Team has a new name but the same losing ways, the Dallas Cowboys have an extremely leaky defense and are now without their star quarterback, and the New York Giants are still not the worst New York team -- even at 1-5.
Philadelphia, PA - While a tie goes in the books as half-a-win, half-a-loss really feels much more appropriate to describe the result of last week’s game.
