In the biggest game of the year, the game that makes or breaks this season, the Birds came to play. The defense was tough as nails and Carson showed up for the biggest game of his life. The Szczypiorski/Krawczuk house loved it. Let it be known I didn't love Doug's play calling, but it got the job done. Fletcher Cox is the toughest guy on the team and I'm proud Sidney Jones figured out how to cover a receiver. At the half, the Eagles were ahead 10-6, and they had us on the edge of our seats the whole time. Here's what I saw in the back half of action:

What an absolutely electric fourth quarter for the Birds. My oh my. They looked terrible in the third quarter, absolutely dreadful. But then, the fourth quarter comes and it finally looks like the Eagles want to win football games. At the half, the Eagles were down 14-10, and they were very shaky until the fourth quarter. Here's what I saw in the back half of action:

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:

HAHAHAHAHAHA. The Miami Dolphins! We let the Miami Dolphins hang around and win. With everyone back from injury, we still let the woeful, 2-9, Dolphins beat us. We should've blown them out of the water (no pun intended). This team doesn't not deserve to be in any playoff conversation and should honestly be embarrassed by their performance this year. At the half, the Eagles were up 21-14, and they played down to their opponent for the entire second half. Here's what I saw in the back half of performance:

MISERABLE. This team is absolutely miserable. I understand we had injuries. So what? We just roll over and die? Carson Wentz certainly didn't want to win (he had four turnovers). Andre Dillard looked like he's never put on a helmet and shoulder pads before. The defensive backs need to go to a pee-wee practice and re-learn how to tackle because RASHAD PENNY ran all over this team. RASHAD PENNY.  At the half, the Eagles were down 10-3, and they played hot potato with the pigskin for the rest of the game. Here's what I saw in the back half of this embarrassing performance:

Home sweet home, right? The Birds are back at the Linc for the first time in what seems like a decade taking on the Chicago Bears. Currently sitting at .500, the Eagles are trying to string a couple wins together and build some momentum. At the half, the Eagles were up 12-0, and they came out very sloppy in the second half. Here's what I saw in the back half of the action:

The Eagles took a trip to the Bills Mafia to take on the surprise of the AFC, the Buffalo Bills. They're looking to bounce back and get a win to get back to .500. At the half, the Eagles were up, 11-7, and they came out pretty strong in the second half. Here's what I saw in the back half of the action:


Offensive MVP: The Running Game

FINALLY!!!! The Eagles are running the football. The Birds rushed for 218 total yards including both Sanders and Howard going for over 60 yards. With the crazy wind that was blowing the Eagles needed to run the ball well and they did, very well. Pederson called more rush plays instead of pass plays and its what fans have been asking for all season. When the Eagles won the Super Bowl, the rush and pass attack were very close. That's what the Eagles need to continue to do. 


Defensive MVP: Brandon Graham

Brandon Graham had a heck of a game. He had two forced fumbles, two tackles for a loss and one sack. Graham was a monster on the defense for the birds and he did it from every spot on the d-line. He played defensive end as well as defensive tackle and was a huge disruption for the Bills offense. 

 


Breakout Stars
  • The Offensive Line- To run the ball for 200+ yards like the Eagles did, the offensive line needs to be elite. Today, the O-line was elite. They led the way for the offensive and created big holes for the Eagles running game. 
  • T.J. Edwards- Edwards is taking over pretty well after the release of Zach Brown. Today, he had five tackles and commanded the defense pretty well. 

 


Highlight Reel
  • Miles Sanders ripped off a 65-yard touchdown for his first NFL touchdown. A huge block by Jordan Howard opened a huge seam for Sanders to break out. 

 

  • Brandon Graham stripped Josh Allen on a QB zone play and proceeded to recover the fumble he forced. Just a monstrous play from BG. 
  • Ronald Darby saved Rodney McLeod on a blown coverage that would've cost them six points. Instead, on the 4th and 10, Darby broke up a Josh Allen pass that forced a turnover on downs.

Postgame Report: Eagles vs Cowboys

By Evan Krawczuk, Contributing Writer

The Eagles took a trip back to Jerry's World to take on division foe, Dallas Cowboys. They're looking to grab sole possession at the top of the NFC East. At the half, the Eagles were down, 27-7, and they came out the half very flat and it went down hill from there. Here's what I saw in the back half of the action:


Offensive MVP: No One

I hate to give no one an MVP two weeks in a row but our offense looked more like a dumpster fire than a team fighting for the division. Yes, Goedert did have that touchdown but he also had a huge fumble early in the game. The offense never got going and the quick Cowboy linebackers played really well and made it tough for the Eagles to do anything. 


Defensive MVP: Nathan Gerry

Zeke ran all over the Eagles defense and Prescott through the ball all over the place so this week it goes to the leading tackler. Gerry had 11 tackles but no TFL's. Ezekiel Elliot had over 100 yards rushing and without Gerry who knows how much worse it could've been. The defense didn't play well at all but Gerry's nose for the ball gets him this weeks Defensive MVP. 


Breakout Stars
  • Dallas Goedert- Goedert had what might've been the ONLY bright spot for the Eagles offense in his 28-yard touchdown reception and I would like to see him get more involved in the offense.
  • Jalen Mills- Mills played solidly in his first game back. Of course, he was a little rusty and he got missed a play here and there but, he had a nice interception and was a big help in the run game.

 


Highlight Reel
  • Carson Wentz's touchdown pass to Dallas Goedert was a sweet pitch and catch that beat the Cowboys mixed coverage.

 

  • Jalen Mills got an interception in his first game back. It was a pass destined for a touchdown if not for Mills and he made a nice play to highpoint and take the touchback.

Postgame Report: Eagles at Vikings

By Evan Krawczuk, Contributing Writer

The Eagles took the trip back to the Super Bowl LII promise land to take on the Minnesota Vikings. They're trying to keep up the momentum they've built over the last few weeks against the Packers and Jets. At the half, the Eagles were down, 24-10, and they came out the half with a little life but quickly went down hill. Here's what I saw in the back half of the action:


Offensive MVP: Alshon Jeffery (I Guess)

The Offense never really got going. Sacks, turnovers, and penalties never let the Eagles offense get in a rhythm. If there was one bright spot I guess it was Alshon. finished with 10 catches for 76 yards and that one touchdown that was pretty sweet. Although the offense sputtered, Alshon did have a solid game and deserves some respect for that. 


Defensive MVP: No one

The Eagles defense got torched. To add insult to injury, Eagles linebacker, Zach Brown, called out Vikings Quarterback Kirk Cousins earlier this week. 

Kirk Cousins went on to throw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns with a 76% completion percentage. Because of this absolute manhandling of the defense, there is no defensive MVP. 


Breakout Stars
  • Andre Dillard- Dillard came in for the injured Jason Peters and played decently. The Vikings defensive line is stout and Dillard held his own in the trenches
  • Hasaan Ridgeway- Ridgeway was one of the few Eagle defenders that came to play and totaled 3 tackles and 2 for a loss.

Highlight Reel
  • Carson Wentz's touchdown pass coming out of the half was a pretty sweet play in which Wentz avoided a few Vikings and found Alshon Jeffery in the end zone.
  • Andrew Sendejo picked off his former team after a drop by Stefan Diggs. A nice moment for Sendejo to have against his former team.

The Eagles had ten days to prepare for the Sam Darnold-less New York Jets. They're trying to keep up the momentum they built against the Packers last week in this week's out-of-conference match-up. At the half, the Eagles were ahead, 21-0, and they looked very unimpressive even though they never trailed. Here's what I saw in the back half of the action:


Offensive MVP: Carson Wentz

The offense as a whole was not that impressive, but Carson made some incredible plays in the pocket to keep some drives alive. Wentz had two magician-like escapes, one in which he ducked under a defender and fired a bullet to Ertz for a first down. He finished with 189 passing yards and just the one touchdown.


Defensive MVP: Orlando Scandrick

Orlando Scandrick had a monster game today, totaling two sacks, three tackles and a touchdown. On one of those sacks, Scandrick mugged Jets quarterback, Luke Falk, striping the ball away and scampered 44 yards for a touchdown. Scandrick was jobless a week ago and has come up huge in his first game back.


Breakout Stars
  • Nathan Gerry- Gerry had a very solid game today. The line backer-converted-safety had a big interception that he returned for a touchdown and was solid in coverage and in the run game.
  • Zach Ertz- Obviously Ertz is a big time tight end but didn't get his first receiving touchdown until today. Ertz totaled 57 receiving yards on 5 catches and his touchdown.
  • Jim Schwartz- Schwartz's defense was incredible. they totaled 10 sacks and only allowed 128 total yards all game.

Highlight Reel
  • Nathan Gerry's pick six came on a big fourth down in Eagles territory for a 51 yard return.
  • Brandon Graham's three sacks kept the Jets from taking off and set them in tough down and distances on multiple occasions.
  • Zach Ertz's aforementioned touchdown was a huge play going into half time.
  • Scandricks mugging of Luke Falk that was taken back for six was the nail in the coffin for the woeful Jets.
