Philadelphia Eagles Now a Dangerous Team to Face in December
Nobody thought it would come to this. After a 4-12 record last season, the Philadelphia Eagles are now 7-5, riding a four game winning streak, and in serious contention for the playoffs. Chip Kelly is looking like a brilliant hire as he has the ship righted after 12 games, not two years. Billy Davis has the defense playing as a unit, and that seems to be the theme: Play as a team, have everyone’s back. Face down adversity and you come out winners. The biggest thing going for the team at this point may be psychological, and you saw evidence of this on Sunday.
On the first drive the defense forced a Carson Palmer fumble. There was pressure all day and Palmer had no chance to build consistency. The points given were a result of miscommunication, which must stop for the remaining games, but really they only hurt themselves. The Arizona Cardinals did nothing to win the game. What you saw on the field was frustration.
News broke today that Bruce Arians submitted 15 plays to the league for review. He needs to quit crying and realize his team can’t win on the road. There were calls that went against both teams on Sunday, and the game could have been impacted either way. The refs were letting the corners play on both ends, and as the announcers stated, you have to adjust as a player when you feel out the kind of game that is being called. The Cardinals never adjusted.
The Eagles are grabbing momentum and were able to ride it out even with lulls at the end. Kelly said this week they will work on finishing games, and that is the final piece of the puzzle. The Eagles are now a dangerous team and are getting inside the heads of the opposition. That is a key element to a playoff berth and more fun football to watch in December.
