Remember week one against the Redskins?

That high powered offense and the DNA boys ready to take on the league with the Eagles?

Well, that was the end of the unit as they only ever played that one game and, appear likely to never play together again.

Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports that Alshon Jeffery is done for the season.

Eagles Swap Defensive Tackles On Practice Squad

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles made a move last week to activate Cre'Von LeBlanc from the injured reserve.

The move came at the expense of former Clemson defensive tackle Albert Huggins.

Huggins had played in the four previous games for the Eagles, making three tackle assists in limited snaps.

On the same day, the Eagles had promoted tight end Josh Perkins from the practice squad to take the spot of Jordan Matthews, who had been released earlier that week.

The Eagles left an opening for Huggins on the practice squad, but he did not clear waivers and was instead claimed by the New England Patriots on Monday the second.

With the Patriots having kicker issues, however, they waived Huggins before their game this weekend.

Eagles Evaluation: Backed Into A Corner, Eagles Flip The Switch

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles offense was horrid. The defense started well, but fell apart in the second quarter.

The Eagles missed a field goal and had a touchdown called back for a phantom hold. They entered the tunnel at halftime a lifeless team.

Then there was the injuries. Lane Johnson, Alshon Jeffery, Jalen Mills and Miles Sanders all went down in the middle of the game.

At one point, JJ Arcega-Whiteside even left the game.

The team was forced to rely on three recent promotions from the practice squad.

That's when the magic happened.

Postgame Report Eagles vs. Giants

By Evan Krawczuk, Contributing Writer

The energy in the second half, WHERE HAS THAT BEEN ALL SEASON? There were some points where the offense was somewhat flat but the offense did just enough to tie the game up and force overtime. The defense did not play well in the second half. The Giants just happened to be really bad in the second half. In overtime, the Eagles came out HOT. Quick throws to Sanders and Scott got the Birds rolling all the way down on the game winning drive. At the half, the Eagles were down 17-3, and they played down to their opponent for the entire second half. Here's what I saw in the back half of performance:

Halftime Report: Giants at Eagles

By Matt Ryan, Sports Talk Philly Contributor

The Eagles face the Giants in week 14 of the regular season. The Eagles offense has looked horrible, finishing the half with just 116 total yards and three points. The Eagles head into the half down 17-3 in a must win game for the Birds. Here is what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:


First Half Offensive MVP

TE Zach Ertz. Ertz has been the Eagles lone bright spot finishing the half with five catches for 69 yards. Ertz had two 20+ yard receptions that led to an Eagles field goal in the second quarter.


First Half Defensive MVP

S Malcolm Jenkins. Jenkins had a great first half with four total tackles and one pass deflected. Jenkins’ pass deflected saved a touchdown that would have put the Giants up two possessions.


Who Needs To Step Up

CB Ronald Darby. Darby has had a horrible first half, missing a tackle on third down that led to a touchdown and giving up a huge 42 yard reception. Darby finished out the half giving up a 55 yard touchdown bomb to put the Eagles down 14 points at the half. Darby is going to need to have an incredible second half if the Eagles want to mount a huge comeback


Who To Watch Out For

RB Saquon Barkley. Barkley is the Giants main play-maker and will be a huge part in their running and passing game in the second half. Barkley had a decent first half, finishing with 39 yards on 10 carries.


Week 14 Preview: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles

By Matt Szczypiorski, Sports Talk Philly Contributing Writer

Every time I think that the season might be over, the Cowboys just lose again and keep the Eagles life support plugged in.

After an absolutely humiliating loss to the lowly Miami Dolphins last Sunday, the Eagles return home for a Monday night match-up with the rival New York Giants.

The Giants are not good. I’d say that the Eagles should beat this team, but the Eagles are also not good.

I’m done with the excuses. I don’t want to hear it. I’m done with the “They would have a better record if the receivers could catch.” I’m so over it. At this point in the season, you are what your record says you are. The Eagles are 5-7. At this point in time, they are a bad football team.

Also, what self-respecting head coach has the nerve to say that a 2-9 Dolphin team made more plays because they “wanted it more.” Really? A two win team wanted it more than a team fighting for a playoff spot? If that’s really the case, then that lack of effort is on you, Dougie P. I’m so sick of it. Figure it out.

Injury Report: Giants at Eagles

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

Despite a huge loss that seemed Earth shattering last week, the embarrassed Eagles remain in contention of the NFC East and a home game in the playoffs.

The Cowboys losing to the Bears keeps them just half a game ahead of the Birds and gives the Eagles the third tie breaker over the Cowboys should the teams tie in record, head to head and division record.

That said, the Eagles just need to win their final four games - all against NFC East opponents - to get into the playoffs. Who knows what the Eagles could do if they manage to get healthy and have both Jordan Howard and DeSean Jackson back on the offense.
