Philadelphia Eagles S Nate Allen announced as a top goat from Week 8

Nearly midway through the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad.

Jeremy Maclin's monster game goes to waste as Eagles lose to Arizona Cardinals

GLENDALE, AZ — Up until the moment Arizona Cardinals wide receiver John Brown got behind Nate Allen for the game winning touchdown, Sunday was all aboutEagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin.

Eagles beat Rams behind defense, special teams

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Once their defense made one last stop to prevent a collapse, the Philadelphia Eagles became defensive. Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, the defense and special teams each scored and the Eagles held on for a 34-28 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. But the mood afterward almost seemed like they lost because the Eagles allowed the Rams to rally from...

In what would be perhaps the most anticipated game of the season, marking the return of DeSean Jackson and the first divisional game, the Eagles escaped with a narrow victory over Washington by the final score of 37-34. The first half stared as a defensive struggle for the Eagles as a few quick strikes from quarterback Kirk Cousins , including two to Jackson, put Washington in perfect...

GIF: DeSean Jackson Scuffles With Eagles

Well that didn’t take long. Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson mixed it up with his former teammates in the first quarter Sunday. Jackson shoved Malcolm Jenkins and then was shoved back by Nate Allen. Allen was flagged and penalized 15 yards. As they say. the retaliation is what the refs catch. We’ll see if this is the last of the Jackson/Eagles bad blood...

Eagles overcome horrendous 1st half to outlast the Jags, 34-17…

There’s an old military quote from WWII, it had something to do with the Battle of the Bulge— maybe it was General Patton who said it, I’m not sure— but it went something like this: “Another victory like this and we are finished…” In other words, the Eagles won their home opener against a resilient opponent in the Jaguars on Sunday, but oh at what a cost!

Eagles rally from first half woes for win over Jaguars

Drawing the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1 of the season seemed to be a dream for the Eagles. As the first half unfolded, a nightmare was occuring on the field. Three turnovers allowed the Jaguars to open up a 17-0 lead at the half. But the Eagles returned to form in the second half, trimming the lead to three points before tying the game early in the fourth. With 34 unanswered points...

Debunking the “missing piece” and “X-Factor” theories as Eagles take on Jags…

The hype is understandable. Eagles fans are desperate for a safety who can line his guys up and provide leadership in the secondary. Malcolm Jenkins (#27) is labeled the “missing piece” in that scenario. And then there are the “X-Factors” whom Dave Spadaro of has designated as the Birds’ secret weapons: Nolan Carroll—nickel/dime CB, KR…. Brandon Graham— OLB…...

Why the Philadelphia Eagles secondary may be much better than you think

Coming into this season the biggest question mark for the Philadelphia Eagles is its secondary. You have probably heard by now that Philly was not very good at defending the pass in 2013. In fact, no team gave up more passing yards per game in the NFL (289.8.) Over the offseason the Eagles signed safety Malcolm Jenkins in order to establish leadership for the unit, but it’s another...

Eagles looking for improvement in pass defense

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Ten of the 11 likely starters on the Philadelphia Eagles defense appear to be the same as the unit that finished 29th in the league in overall defense and last in the league in passing defense. So is the addition of free safety Malcolm Jenkins and the subtraction of Patrick Chung enough to make that big of a difference? According to coordinator Bill Davis it'...

The Bears’ backup QB Jimmy Clausen ended up with the best stat line for the night throwing for 150 yards and 2 TD’s. Shows how much I know, I didn’t think he would even play until Week 2 of preseason. I guess a cynic could say the Eagles “2″ defense somehow made Jimmy look good!
