Philadelphia Eagles have a chance to knock 49ers out of the NFC race on Sunday

Usually Week 4 matchups would never make or break a team in the NFL, but this Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers is a special exception. The Eagles have fallen behind by double digits in each of their first three games this season. Nick Foles played nothing like Nick Foles in two of them. Their defense has been just as suspect as it was last...

Stephen A. Smith applauds Chris Baker for his hit on Nick Foles

We can all agree that Chris Baker’s hit on Nick Foles was at best borderline dirty and at worse, completely dirty. So basically, it was a dirty cheap shot. Baker himself thinks that the hit wasn’t dirty, which shouldn’t surprise any of us. But what should surprise us is that Baker has an ally in all of this. An ally that makes a living peddling ridiculous opinions and occasionally...

There is pure hatred in the veins of the players for their opponents. With WR DeSean Jackson’s return to his former home of the Linc as a backdrop...

I went to a hockey fight…and a football game broke out… Eagles 37, Redskins 34…

The injury count in this game was epic. I counted at least 10 casualties between both teams. I think that almost officially qualifies for the original Latin definition of “decimated”… What a drama-filled and emotional game! Both sides were chippy from the outset, no doubt due to the many verbal instigations of that little attention-seeker, DeSean Jaccpot…. Truth be told...

  A brawl broke out between the Eagles and Redskins after Nick Foles was knocked down.

In Redskins-Eagles fight, officials were the winners

The Washington-Philadelphia game had it all.  It was certainly the best of the early games Sunday -- a good, old-fashioned slugfest, complete with quarterbacks  Kirk Cousins and Nick Foles going toe to toe. Cousins threw for 427 yards and three touchdowns and Foles went for 325 yards and three TDs in a game eventually won by the Eagles, 37-34. But that duel was merely the preliminary...
