PHILADELPHIA – Nakobe Dean isn’t playing right now and the reason for that should be obvious but the rookie linebacker’s high-profile college career is complicating matters for some fans. Not for the Eagles’ coaching staff, however, which is basking in the play of veterans T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White while also enjoying the luxury of
PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles filled the roster spot opened when Jordan Davis was placed on injured reserve by promoting defensive back Andre Chachere from the practice squad on Tuesday.

PHILADELPHIA – Week 1 without Jordan Davis didn’t go as smoothly as hoped but the Eagles persevered to top a bad Houston Texans team and move to 8-0. Without the big man in the middle, however, the Philadelphia defense allowed 168 yards rushing, including 139 to impressive rookie Dameon Pierce. As good as Pierce has
PHILADELPHIA – It’s election season so the focus is always going to spike for Nate Silver’s famed-predictive site, FiveThirtyEight.com.

The Eagles are 8-0, but that doesn’t mean they’re perfect.

You can start with their run defense, which gave up 168 yards to rookie Dameon Pierce and the
HOUSTON – An afterthought turned to perseverance as the Eagles outlasted a competitive Houston Texans team, 29-17, on Thursday night to reach 8-0 for the first time in its nearly 90 years of franchise history.

It seemed like a business trip that the Eagles did not want to take. There was an eye-rolling, ho-hum quality to their effort on Thursday night against the woeful Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.

An NFL source confirmed to JAKIB Sports that the initial belief was that Davis suffered
PHILADELPHIA – Jalen Hurts is labeled by most as one of the NFL’s best dual-threat quarterbacks. After leading the Eagles to a 35-13 blowout win over Pittsburgh why stop there?

PHILADELPHIA – Robert Quinn is expected to make his Eagles debut on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a scant four days after being acquired from the Chicago Bears for a 2023 fourth-round pick. Part of the quick integration is Quinn’s experience and some of it is the position he plays as an edge rusher. The
The Eagles have the league’s fourth-best success rate on third-and-one and fourth-and-one this season. They’ve converted 72.2% of their and-1s on third/fourth down. They’ve converted 9 of 13 on third down and 4 of 5 on fourth down. Quarterback Jalen Hurts is their primary weapon in those situations. He has converted 12 of 14 and-1s.
PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles received good news on the injury front Thursday when star right tackle Lane Johnson cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol and returned to practice while veteran defensive end Brandon Graham also engaged in a limited fashion after missing Wednesday’s session with a sore hamstring. Both were injured during the Week 6 win
With the championship window open the Eagles made a major move on Wednesday, acquiring 32-year-old edge rusher Robert Quinn for a fourth-round pick. Quinn has been having a down season in Chicago with just one sack in seven games while playing in 68% of the defensive snaps but the veteran is less than one year
Right tackle Lane Johnson remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol as the Eagles (6-0) returned to work Wednesday in preparation for Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh (2-5). That caused a little angst pre-practice because it’s been 10 days since Johnson suffered a head injury against the Dallas Cowboys but the team’s bye week skewed the process.
One of the more respected Eagles’ players is back. Veteran receiver Greg Ward was signed to the team’s practice squad on Monday. Ward was part of the team’s receiving corps from 2019 through 2021 and his attempt at making the 53 again was derailed this summer by a toe injury that sent the University of
