The Philadelphia Eagles drop their second game of the season to the Arizona Cardinals 24-20 on the road. The injured Offensive Line forced coach Chip Kelly to cut down on the running game severely, and quarterback Nick Foles attempted 62 passes on the day. Foles also added another two interceptions on the season, both costly. He is definitely struggling this season in big ways, and the concerns are that he is not fixing what is wrong from week to week. On top of that, the Eagles secondary are giving up big plays every game, where they are getting beat, or not even putting up much of a defense when balls are incoming. Regardless, the Eagles of Philly are 5-2 on the season, and second place in the NFC East as we approach the halfway point of the season. The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Washington Redskins, which keeps the lead tight. We’d be silly if we didn’t mention Jeremy Maclin’s standout performance this week, who caught 12 of Foles’ passes for an amazing 187 yards and two touchdowns. A stellar performance.
Todd shares his experiences at the tailgate and then in the stadium itself this week, as he was there at the Eagles-Cardinals game. He definitely wasn’t alone in green, as there were easily 10,000 other screaming Eagles fans at the game in the desert. They were easily heard and seen on the TV coverage, and it made all of us proud.
This week the Eagles remain on the road, and head to Houston to take on the Texans. On paper the Texans are the weaker team, and the Eagles get back a few players that have been out with injuries, most notably Darren Sproles and Jason Kelce. It’s good to see Kelce getting back, but Todd Herremans’ torn biceps might limit his effectiveness, but if anyone can play through that pain, it’s Herremans.
