The Eagles slide by Jacksonville and Doug Pederson, 29-21, to remain undefeated

With wet grass matted to the front of his helmet, through squinting eyes from the diagonal falling rain, Jalen Hurts and the Eagles were able to navigate through their first adversity this season against their former head coach and a rising team on an overcast Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles’ 29-21 victory over

Eagles stomp on Carson Wentz and Washington in a 24-8 victory

There was no way to escape it. Was there really any doubt? Did you really expect anything different? Carson Wentz was incredibly effective against the Eagles on Sunday—of turning Washington’s FedEx Field into the world’s largest comedy club. The current Washington Commanders’ quarterback and former Eagle was an anxious mess under pressure from his former

Eagles look like real contenders in a 24-7 demolition of Minnesota in home opener

The Eagles may have something tangible now to convert lofty expectations into a reality. It may be a week late, but it could not have come against a better opponent, the Minnesota Vikings, and in a better situation than in their home opener, and on a better platform than Monday Night Football. For the second-straight

The Eagles will find out where they are after the Vikings

One bad quarter. That’s what created the fallout. One bad quarter. The Detroit Lions were strong in the fourth quarter, making what looked like an easy victory for the Eagles turn more into a chilling 38-35 escape under cover of night—after being up 38-21 in the fourth quarter. So, praise became sparse. Now, the Eagles,

Eagles squeak by Detroit, 38-35, in season opener

It wasn’t supposed to be this difficult. The Eagles, considered by many nationally to be the sexy pick to go far in the NFC playoffs, were projected to have an easy time with the Detroit Lions. And for major parts of the Eagles’ season-opening 38-35 victory on Sunday at Ford Field, they did. Though as

The Eagles’ secondary has some catching up to do before the season opener

The acquisition of safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson last week from the New Orleans Saints was huge news for the Eagles. It strengthened what had been perceived as a soft spot on the Eagles at safety, giving them a young, dynamic, talkative cover hybrid who often came down from the safety position to cover the slot receiver

Howie Roseman still can’t get respect after a great offseason

The Athletic is a great website for the chronic sports junkie. It has everything (except comprehensive boxing coverage, wink, wink). It has fantastic writers, like the Eagles’ beat reporter Zach Berman, and national NFL guy Sheil Kapadia, and a cadre of connected writers throughout the country. The Athletic has also done something that in some

Are The Eagles Super Bowl contenders?

The Eagles have yet to beat an elite quarterback in the brief stint of the Nick Sirianni era and in only his second year here they are the talk of the NFL. Many believe that Sirianni’s Eagles, the Sigles, his team, with its deep, talented roster, can be Super Bowl contenders in the NFC. They

Who’s really to blame for the J.J. Arcega-Whiteside mistake?

The J.J. Arcega-Whiteside saga is finally over for the Eagles. He was considered a disappointment, chosen 57th overall in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Stanford, seven places before eventual Seattle Seahawks star DK Metcalf. On Monday, Arcega-Whiteside was traded to Seattle for defensive back Ugo Amadi, who could play either

Eagles haven’t won anything — yet

Over 30,000 gathered at Lincoln Financial Field at the one open practice the Eagles held for fans on Sunday. Everyone oohed and aahed at A.J. Brown’s pure athleticism and making Jalen Hurts look good, and at the immense size of Jordan Davis, and how the orchestrated session blossomed into one giant bouquet of positivity. That’s
