Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
Jalen Hurts: “You haven’t seen the best of us” – PE.com
“You have to be ready to go and I think that’s something we’ve done extremely well as a whole team,” said safety Rodney McLeod earlier in the week. “Prepare to be the starter, so that when it’s your time, you’re ready. Seems like everyone would do it anyway, but that’s not always the case. With this team, we have all taken this approach. This comes from Sirianni, so the last word of 2021, know that he has been the guiding force of his rookie season as a head coach. Sirianni and the Eagles go 8-7 after a series of early injuries injured the team in the trenches, having started 2-5, as they navigated the ongoing COVID-19 infection, and how they have grown together to reach a pivotal point in the season. “You haven’t seen the best of us,” said Hurts. “We are still waiting for that day when we will put everything in place and say that we have done our best. Until then, we are always looking for more. I think that’s the definition of what we’re trying to accomplish here.
Weapon X Mailbag: How would you rank the Eagles among the NFC teams? -BGN
The Colts are currently the fifth seed in the AFC qualifiers. To win the AFC South, they would need to win their last two games of the season against the Raiders and Jaguars AND would need the Titans to lose their last two games against dolphins and Texans. I do not see this happening. In this case, I just can’t imagine Carson Wentz winning three road playoff games to make the super bowl. Can Dallas make the Super Bowl? For sure. I’m going to be sick, but it’s way more possible than Indianapolis to do it. If they go head to head in the Super Bowl, one way or another, you have to easily root for the Colts and hope Jonathan Taylor rushes for more than 250 yards and Wentz throws, like, just nine. passes so he can’t overdo it. a lot of credit for the victory.

Cosell Coaching Tape: Week 16 – Fantasy Points
What stood out over the Giants was how basic the Eagles’ passing game was: concepts, focus on 2-man road concepts and half-court readings; This surprised me considering that Hurts has now started more than the equivalent of a full season.
Washington vs Philadelphia Week 17: Five Questions With Bleeding Green Nation – Hogs Haven
Much of the Eagles’ quality of play relies on their trenches on both sides of the ball. The Eagles OL are ranked 2nd for block pass win rate and 2nd for race block win rate according to ESPN analysis. Likewise, the Eagles DL is ranked 3rd for pass rush win rate and 7th for stoppage win rate. It’s fair to say the Eagles have the best OL / DL combo in the NFL. As a result, the Eagles were able to manage the ball with a committee approach. Miles Sanders is their first RB with 754 rushing yards, although QB Jalen Hurts also has 740 rushing yards this season (2nd tallest on the team). Sanders is likely to be out for this game due to a broken bone in his hand. Also, QB Jalen Hurts hasn’t rushed this much since a sprained ankle in Week 12. I asked Bleeding Green Nation’s Brandon Lee Gowton five questions to better understand the condition of the Eagles and what he’s doing. must look for in this game.
Pro Bowl or not, Lane Johnson becomes the best version of himself
Johnson is not alone, although the battle is often fought alone. There is no shame in asking or needing help. Resuming his medication certainly helped, but Johnson said last month that finding a purpose and a “why” had also helped him recover. “I feel good playing football again, without feeling any symptoms or what I was feeling,” Johnson said. “You are a bit of a manic and you go through these phases. When I don’t feel like that, I just feel like life is a lot easier. “I can just go play soccer.” And he’s played some of his best since, and even caught his first career touchdown assist last Sunday against the New York Giants. The “East Texas” trick game, named after Johnson, didn’t exactly make up for the star-studded snub. “I think I’m the best version of myself right now,” Johnson said a few days later when asked about his playing on the pitch compared to previous seasons. Pro Bowl or not, that’s all that matters.
What Washington game will tell us about Jalen Hurts’ future – NBCSP
A victory over the Washington football team combined with a defeat of the Vikings against the Packers virtually ensures the Eagles reach the playoffs, which would make the Hurts – at 23 years and 148 days – the youngest quarterback to ever take the Eagles to the playoffs. Donovan McNabb did it at 24 in 2000, Nick Foles at 24 in 2013, Randall Cunningham at 25 in 1988. There is so much at stake on Sunday. A victory combined with a loss for the Vikings at Lambeau – where the Packers are 21-2 for the past three years – gives the Eagles a 99% chance in the playoffs. A loss – even if the Vikings lose – drops that number to 45%. So technically it’s not won and you are in it. But it is terribly close. These are the matches by which quarterbacks are judged. Not so much by what they do in September or October but how they react in those few moments that define a season.
Philadelphia Eagles-Washington Football Week 17 cheat sheet: news, games, players to watch, more – the athletic
Berman: It’ll be a tougher game that the Eagles have faced in recent weeks – the point spread suggests it’s a question of picking them on neutral ground – but I like how the Eagles’ trajectory compares to that of Washington. Dallas’ loss was worrying. The Eagles are peaking at the right time, and a healthier Hurts should help the offense. Injured legs should be a factor, especially with injuries in the backfield. The Eagles are expected to control the lines of scrimmage like they did two weeks ago. It might not be pretty, but the Eagles will do enough to win. A 49ers a victory coupled with a loss for the Vikings will hit the Eagles’ ticket to the playoffs. Philadelphia 23, Washington 19
NFL Week 17 Fantasy Football Q&A: Journalists give advice on Rex Burkhead, Isaiah McKenzie, more – ESPN
Too little, too late to trust DeVonta Smith, or was Week 16 enough to sell you as viable this weekend in Washington? It really depends on your options. He’s averaging six targets per game and, as we’ve seen, he’s a gifted receiver capable of racking up big numbers. But, like most newbie receivers, his stats fluctuate from week to week, and he operates in a heavy attack. Smith is generally good at a handful of catches per game. It is child’s play for him to boost his production by finding the end zone.
On closer examination: Cowboys Reach their Peak at the Right Time – Blogging The Boys
Obviously, these are not reliable figures. It’s the NFL, and this season more than most has reminded us of how unpredictable things are. There are no guarantees in this area, which is why playing one less playoff game is so important. The point is, this Cowboys team has done everything they can at this point in the season to prove that they’re not only capable of winning the Super Bowl, but that they don’t even necessarily need that. seed to do so. . Keep that in mind in case the Packers don’t help their former coach’s new squad over the next couple of weeks.
Big Blue View Mailbag: Draft, GM, Joe Judge, Quarterback – We’ve Touched Them All – Big Blue View
Ed says: Eric, in my review of Sunday’s “Kudos and Wet Willies” game, part of the headline was “Maybe Daniel Jones is really good. It was partly out of control, although I know some people didn’t take it that way. What does the regression in offense say about Jones? Well, that says he’s a more capable quarterback than Mike Glennon or Jake Fromm. That doesn’t mean much – I’m not sure the bar can be set much lower than that. That said, the Giants depended on Jones’ running ability and athleticism, and he’s a better football pitcher than Glennon or Fromm. Ultimately, the situation probably tells us less about Jones than it does about the broken and incompetent mess that surrounds him.
Kirk Cousins is on Viking COVID-19 list, for Sunday night football – Daily Norseman
Suffice it to say, it really, really puts a big dent in the Vikings’ chances of keeping their playoff hopes on Sunday night. A win essentially takes them out of the playoff race, and now they’ll be in it without their starting quarterback. How big of a deal is that? If you look at the playing lines, you’ve probably noticed that the line has gone from Packers -6.5 to Packers -13.5. It is. . .many.
