The Philadelphia Eagles maintained their first place hold on the NFC East by beating the St. Louis Rams at The Linc 34-28. The Eagles Offense has been outscored by their opponent’s Offense two weeks straight now, but the Eagles Special Teams and Defense are helping to put points up on the board. The Eagles Offense has been sputtering, partly because of a depleted O-line, but also because of miscues and costly turnovers. But as many say, a Win is a Win, and the Eagles have chalked up four of them in the first five games of the season. This week the Eagles play host to the Division rivals New York Giants, a team that has been surging lately, and seems to have found their way in this season. The game is on Sunday evening, and the world will be watching. Will the struggling Birds show up again this week, or will the team show that it is learning from the many mistakes, and put together an attack against the Giants on both sides of the ball? Either way, there will be an amped-up fanbase in attendance, who are already buzzing for this game. It’s a great and exciting time to be an Eagles fan. Granted our hearts may not always agree, but this is what it is all about. We bleed green, and expect nothing short of all out heart from our players and coaches.
This week’s game is why we tune in, why we buy the tickets, why we arrive seven hours early to tailgate. It’s about the love of a team, and the hard work that represents what the city of Philadelphia was built on.
