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 Offense Going The Three Wide Way

By Paul Domowitch   Considering that we’re only two games into a 17-game marathon, there aren’t a lot of firm conclusions we can draw from the Eagles’ victories over the Lions and Vikings, other than that they’re going to be a pretty good team if they can stay healthy.   But one conclusion I think

Nick Sirianni Counting on Veteran Leadership to Avoid Traps

PHILADELPHIA – It was silly but some were calling for Nick Sirianni’s job after a 2-5 start last season. Win No. 2 in 2022, a dominating performance on Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings, has many of the same hot-take artists trumpeting Sirianni for NFL Coach of the Year. Rat poison can be obvious

Former teammates talk Wentz Week with Commanders on deck

PHILADELPHIA – It’s simple supply and demand when it comes to NFL quarterbacks. There are never 32 people in the world good enough to stop every NFL team to uncover every rock to try to get better at arguably the most important position in sports. That explains why Carson Wentz in the man inside the

Hidden Arryn Siposs hustle pays off against Vikings

PHILADELPHIA – Ostensibly the Eagles dominated the Minnesota Vikings during a 24-7 win on Monday night but like any NFL game there were a handful of moments that could have tilted things dramatically. Irv Smith’s drop late in the second quarter turned a potential 63-yard touchdown and a manageable 21-14 Vikings deficit at the half

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

‘Revenge’ is a dish best served with friends for Jalen Reagor

PHILADELPHIA – Jalen Reagor still texts every day with a number of his former Eagles teammates like DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Miles Sanders. It’s a group text among friends and football isn’t part of the equation nor is trash-talking. It’s just a bunch of guys who enjoyed each other’s company before Reagor was sent

Haason Reddick sets his standard

PHILADELPHIA – You don’t need analytics or next-generation stats to explain Haason Reddick ‘s standard. The Eagles’ new $15 million edge rusher wants to affect every game. “At some point, I just feel like I have to make a play that affects the game because that’s what I was brought here to do,” Reddick said

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,

Can Eagles pass rush get to Cousins better than it got to Goff?

The Eagles had just one sack in Sunday’s 38-35 win over the Lions, and that one was gift-wrapped with a fumbled snap. Besides the sack, they had just four hits and eight hurries on quarterback Jared Goff. But Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon insisted this week that he was not displeased with his pass rush

DeVonta Smith discusses rare 0-for

PHILADELPHIA – It never happened at Alabama or in his rookie season in the NFL. Sunday in Detroit, however, emerging second-year receiver DeVonta Smith was shut out. Smith was targeted four times and had a chance for at least one reception but when the full 60 minutes were drained off a 38-35 win, Smith finished

Nick Sirianni confirms torn ACL for Derek Barnett

PHILADELPHIA – Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed that defensive end Derek Barnett tore the ACL in his left knee during Sunday’s win over Detroit, a season-ending injury for the veteran defensive end. Barnett, the team’s first-round pick in 2017, never lived up to that promise but he is a well-regarded member of the DE

Four-minute offense gets Eagles out of Detroit with a win

DETROIT – The four-minute offense is one of the staples of NFL preparation, a nod toward having the football with a lead late in the game with an opportunity to siphon the clock. In Week 1 of the NFL season, the Eagles found themselves in a textbook four-minute situation (3:49 for the sticklers out there),

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

Bee Sting Causes Concern with A.J. Brown

PHILADELPHIA – Eagles’ star receiver A.J. Brown got a bit of a scare at practice Friday when a rogue bee decided the lengthy wideout used to getting targets would be targeted.

Are Eagles still going to play ground-and-pound in 2022?

Nick Sirianni saved the Eagles’ season last year with a gutsy late-October decision to shake up his offense. After a 33-22 road loss to the Raiders dropped the Eagles to 2-5, Sirianni decided they were going to run the ball more. A lot more. In their first seven games, the Eagles had averaged 36.7 pass
