PHILADELPHIA (AP) Two of the most tenured Philadelphia Eagles, one on each side of the ball, could be playing their final game for the team Sunday against the New York Giants.
Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, a former first-round pick and a six-year veteran, and linebacker Trent Cole, a two-time Pro Bowl selection and 10-year veteran, will be part of an interesting offseason for coach...

The second-place Eagles face a must-win game in Washington in a rare Saturday night game.
The 9-5 Eagles are looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses while the Redskins are looking to snap a six-game losing streak.
Kick-off from FedEx Field is set for 4:30 p.m.
The Eagles rank high in offense but have struggled with Mark Sanchez at the...
You’re 9-5 and your back is against the wall— what is wrong with this picture?
It’s just the NFL— maybe the regular season is too long—otherwise you could have 4 extra playoff teams in the mix, and the playoffs would begin this week.
But here it is. The Eagles would want to beat the Redskins (3-11) regardless of the playoff implications.
The Eagles are as healthy as could...
With the Texans losing Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage last week they signed a former quarterback to their roster in Case Keenum rather quickly.
Now it seems that Keenum is in line to start for the Texans (7-7) when they host the Ravens (9-5) on Sunday.
Keenum knows the offensive playbook better than Thad Lewis and gives them their best chance to win this season. The Texans continue...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Through 14 games the Philadelphia Eagles have committed a league-high 34 turnovers, three more than the next highest team, and 11 more than any other NFC team with a winning record.
Yet the Eagles still have nine wins, despite 19 interceptions from quarterbacks Nick Foles (10) and Mark Sanchez (nine) and 15 fumbles, five of which have come from the quarterbacks...

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles will likely be without veteran outside linebacker Trent Cole when they face a must-win game against the Redskins on Saturday.
Cole suffered a broken hand in the Eagles' 38-27 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Sunday night. Defensive coordinator Bill Davis said it doesn't look good for the veteran to play Saturday.
''There's some things he has...

At Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly's press conference today, Kelly told reporters that he had no update on the status of Eagles linebacker Trent Cole. Cole was injured during last night's game against the Dallas Cowboys. According to a report, Cole's injury is indeed diagnosed, and it could signal the end of Cole's Eagles season and possibly...
Citing an NFL source, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Enquirer reports that Eagles OLB Trent Cole suffered a broken hand, casting doubt on his availability for the rest of the season.
Cole left the game against Dallas in the third quarter, and did not return.
Cole, 32, has spent his entire career with Philadelphia. While his numbers have slightly regressed from his peak years...
Things seemed to be at an all-time high this season following the Eagles Thanksgiving Day win over the Cowboys.
Sunday brought that high crashing down in the Eagles worst performance of the season. There is no way to sugarcoat this, the Eagles were horrible in their loss to the Seahawks.
Here is this week's report card.
Pass offense: The Eagles only threw the ball 20 times. Twice...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Not since their front four boasted the likes of Reggie White, Clyde Simmons, Jerome Brown and Mike Pitts has the Philadelphia Eagles been as good on the pass rush as this season.
Going into Sunday's game against Seattle, the Eagles are second in the league in sacks with 42, on pace for 56. That would be the most the team has had since 1989, when Simmons, White...

Here's how critical Philadelphia's game at Dallas will be on Thanksgiving Day: The winner can start thinking about a home postseason game, maybe even a bye for the wild-card round. The loser winds up needing to win the rematch in 17 days to be viable in the NFC East.
A sweep by either the Eagles or Cowboys, both 8-3, makes that team a contender for top record in the conference. It...

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles can finally look toward their NFC East showdown with the Dallas Cowboys, and they don't have much time to do it.
After disposing of the Tennessee Titans 43-24 on Sunday, the Eagles immediately turned their focus to the rival Cowboys, whom they will visit Thanksgiving Day.
''We had to stay focused on Tennessee all week,'' linebacker Trent...

LeSean McCoy found his footing in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 43-24 victory over the Titans.
It started with Josh Huff returning the opening kickoff for a 107-yard touchdown for a franchise record. From the opening seconds of the game onward, the Philadelphia Eagles led the Tennessee Titans and never looked back, winning the match-up handily with a final score of 43-24.
The key to the Green Bay Packers getting their first signature win of the 2014 season over the Philadelphia Eagles is their offensive line slowing the Philly pass rush.
The Eagles do not have a good defense. They rank 21st in the NFL giving up 366 yards per game and 12th in points giving up 22 points per game. Their point total is down because of turnovers created, but that will...

Our good friend Sunbutts scoffs at my use of the term “upgrade” when referring to the new and improved Philadelphia Eagles roster in 2014.
I suppose he has a critical point— Sunbutts judges a team’s overall quality by how deep it goes in the playoffs. It’s still way too early at 5-1 to project the current edition of the Eagles anywhere beyond what the 2013 edition had...
The Philadelphia Eagles head into their bye week flying on the highest note possible: On the heels of total shutout of those New York football Giants 27-0. 27-zip. 27-to-nada.
However you say it, the score is beautiful.
This is the game when LeSean McCoy finally got going, notching 149 rushing yards. The tight ends got into the act, with Zach Ertz and James Casey both getting in...
Trent Cole will not be the only Eagles player going Eli hunting on Sunday night.
The hatred between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants runs deep, and the lead up to Sunday night’s matchup between the NFC East rivals has done everything to demonstrate this truth. Play on the field doesn’t get underway until 8:30 Sunday evening, but the mouths of the players on both...
Eagles linebacker Trent Cole celebrated his 32nd birthday on Sunday with a sack, a tackle, and a win over the St. Louis Rams. And teammate Jason Peters gave his busy teammate a birthday cake — a sweet gift that highlighted the linebacker's love for hunting. Great win today! Thanks to Jason Peters for birthday cake. Friend for life. @UAHUNT @BlitzTVshow @Eagles @MossyOak pic...

Eagles outside linebacker Trent Cole has been around long enough to understand the landscape of the NFC east and who represents this team's biggest rival.
When asked after Sunday's 34-28 win over the St. Louis Rams who he and his teammates anticipate playing the most every season, Cole's answer may not sit well with Philadelphia fans crazed with...
Sometimes that amount of time can seem like an eternity … and at others, it can seem like it’s over in the blink of an eye.
But when you’re an official in the NFL, things move pretty quickly. So not only do your eyes have to be quick, so does your mind when it comes to making decisions expeditiously.
That was the case in Philadelphia for the Rams-Eagles game...
As the game entered the final moments of the third quarter, the Eagles were having the game that everyone envisioned possible. A 27-point lead opened up and the Eagles were running away with it.
But then the St. Louis Rams started to capitalize on mistakes and miscues galore. And the lead was cut from 27 to six in the waning moments of the game. It took a stop by the Eagles defense...
In what many called the first real test for the team who has soared on second-half comebacks, the Eagles dropped their first game of the season as the San Francisco 49ers came out with the victory by the final score of 26-21.
It was all defense and special teams in the first half to get the Eagles going. After an unsuccessful opening drive by Nick Foles and the Eagles offense, Trent...
