The Eagles traded defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga this afternoon to the New England Patriots. The Birds also sent a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft and in return received a fifth-round pick from the Patriots.
Coming off an embarrassing loss to the Cowboys that saw the Eagles score just three points, everyone had hope that the one win Giants would be just the medicine the Birds needed. It would be anything but that, as the offense was downright offensive and the Giants kicked their way to a 15-7 victory at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles welcome the absolutely pathetic New York Giants to Lincoln Financial Field Sunday at 1, as they look to move back to the .500 mark. The Eagles enter the contest coming off a wretched offensive showing last week against the Cowboys in a 17-3 loss, while the Giants finally picked up their first win in a 23-7 defeat of the Vikings.
We all thought this game would be a shootout. With first place in the NFC East on the line, the Cowboys visited the Eagles in what was sure to be a high-scoring affair. Seriously, I don’t think a single bet was placed on the under for this game, but apparently should’ve been, as Dallas won 17-3.
First place in the NFC East is on the line Sunday at 1 p.m. at Lincoln Financial Field, as the 3-3 Cowboys visit the 3-3 Eagles. With Michael Vick ruling himself out for the game, it will be Nick Foles who makes the start for the second week in a row.
Although active today, Michael Vick was unable to play, leaving the ball in the hands of Nick Foles for the day. Foles was impressive in the outing as the Eagles beat a downtrodden Buccaneers squad in the end by a score of 31 to 20 (just a field goal each away from my prediction of a 28-17 Eagles win, just saying).
The Eagles head down to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers Sunday afternoon, as they look to hit the .500 mark and potentially gain sole possession of first place in the dreadful NFC East. The Bucs enter the contest at 0-4 and having recently released quarterback Josh Freeman.
The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants 36-21 in their rivalry game on Sunday. The Eagles locked up the victory by pulling away in the fourth quarter behind some strong play by backup quarterback Nick Foles. Foles, who finished with almost 200 yards passing, threw two touchdown passes in the fourth to cement the win. He replaced the oft-injured Mike Vick who was taken out of the game in the first half due to a hamstring injury. Vick is going in for an MRI soon and according to Coach Kelly is still the starting quarterback if healthy.
