Best in NFC – EaglesFanCast 221

Our Philadelphia Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers in a Thursday night showdown  in another road game.

Now the Eagles have a 5-1 record, the best in the NFC. We are also tied for the best record in the NFL, along with the Kansas City Chiefs. This record comes after the Birds spend 4 of those games on the road, only losing the one to the Chiefs themselves. Since that loss, the Eagles have won four straight, and seemed to have gelled as a team, despite a few key player losses due to injury.

The depth is apparent as players filled those gaps, and allowed the team to play very solid football. This week the Eagles get Lane Johnson back after a concussion protocol.

Right now the Eagles are in great shape with three upcoming home games before the BYE in Week 10.

First is Monday Night Football against the Washington Redskins, the only NFC East team that appears at this point to pose a threat to the Eagles for the Division. A divisional game at home… this is football we want!

A Cardinal Blowout – EaglesFanCast 220

Our Philadelphia Eagles make a statement at the Linc Sunday, crushing the Arizona Cardinals 34-7. This moves the Birds to 4-1 on the season. Nelson Agholor was the Eagles standout receiver of the game, with four receptions for 93 yards and a beautiful touchdown. Quarterback Carson Wentz put up 304 yards in the air with four touchdowns… three of which came in the first quarter of the game alone.

This was even more important considering both the Giants and Cowboys lost this week, so the Eagles sit atop the division by themselves. With a powerful new run game, it has kept Defenses off-balance the past two weeks.

Wentz also has been doing an exceptional job at recognizing a defensive set he was not comfortable with. His audibles at the line produced positive yardage every time. The coaches are respecting Carson’s eyes and decision-making abilities more and more. The weapons are there, and the Offense has been capitalizing.

Next is a short week, as the Eagles go down the coast and take on the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers are always a tough team, and depending on the Cam Newton that arrives to the game, this will not be an easy game on either side of the ball. On a short week, away game, and against another 4-1 team, this could be harder than most fans want. If it is a loss, we want the Eagles to challenge all game and lose to a better team. But a win would be huge, and would make a lot of believers.

All Charged Up – EaglesFanCast 219

The Philadelphia Eagles have a home game on the road in Los Angeles, when they visit the Los Angeles Chargers. Wait, what?

Well so many Eagles fans showed up at the game, that it was pretty much like an Eagles home game. Eagles fans booed the Chargers when they were announced, cheered “Dallas sucks!” at random times, and drowned out the “Let’s Go Chargers!” chants with “Let’s Go Eagles!”. Our Defense even raised the Birds fans cheers on third downs, and Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz took it upon himself to quiet the crowd when he was working under center.

Amazing, and absolutely great.

Our cohost Todd (@tradonks) was at the game, and kept sending photos of Eagles fans, well, everywhere. The TV announcers were even talking about it.

The greatest fanbase in any sport, hands down.

Besides that awesomeness, the Eagles beat the Chargers 26-24 to go 3-1 on the season, and now sit atop the NFC East. The Eagles have won two out of their three road games, and both of the games against division rivals. The Defense forced another turnover, the Offense running game put up over 200 yards, thanks to LaGarrette Blount going beast mode this week, and star rookie kicker Jake Elliott booting four more field goals, all of them over 40 yards, with the long of 53. Overall it was a solid game, and a good win on the season.

Next the Eagles are home in Lincoln Financial Field hosting the Arizona Cardinals with QB Carson Palmer who can always be dangerous.

Thriller Over Giants – EaglesFanCast 218

We are back after a record-setting  amazing win over the New York Giants! We all know the story at this point, with the game tied with only one second left in the game, the Eagles rookie kicker, Jake Elliott was asked to do the near-impossible: kick a field goal of 61 yards. This was a feat that was never accomplished by any Philadelphia Eagles kicker, let alone Eagles rookie kicker! The kick was away… and the kick was gooooooooooood!!!

Eagles fans the world over celebrated together as the Eagles win another division game, move to two wins and one loss on the season, send the Giants to 0-3, and witness history. It was an amazing moment in our fandom.

Overall the game was not great, after the Eagles led 14-0 going into the fourth quarter and feeling good. The Giants had other plans, thanks in part to Odell Beckham Jr. making two amazing end zone catches, the second the result of a drive by the Giants after an Eagles turnover. Just like that it was tied at 14. An Eagles punt and subsequent Giants drive for a touchdown put the Giants ahead 21-14. How did this happen so fast?

But the Eagles answered with a TD of their own to tie it at 21. A Giants field goal, then Eagles field goal then led to the drama of a tie game with less than a minute left. Eagles stopped the Giants drive, which led to a poor punt by the Giants, giving the ball to the Eagles with only 13 seconds left in the game.

Carson Wentz then tried to get the Eagles’ kicker close, but ONLY set him up for the 61 yard attempt. Everyone expected overtime. But not on this day. The rookie Elliott made that kick look almost easy, and was carried off by his teammates to the locker room.

A ridiculous fourth quarter, and a big win for the Eagles.
