Eagles show what it takes to be champions in well-deserved Super Bowl victory

Eagles show what it takes to be champions in well-deserved Super Bowl victory

Not only did the Philadelphia Eagles dominate the defending Super Bowl champs, but they flexed their muscles in doing so without their franchise QB. The Philadelphia Eagles have done what almost nobody—including yours truly—ever thought they could. Dominating the New England Patriots for practically the entire game, the Eagles refused to become yet another victim of Tom Brady’s trademark, fourth-quarter rallies. Nick Foles played the game of his career—particularly when you consider the stakes—to prove those of us wrong who considered him no match for Brady and company. And as it...
6 Thoughts from a Steelers fan following the Eagles’ Super Bowl 52 win

Can the Eagles bust through the Patriots’ roadblock to the NFL title?

Can the Eagles bust through the Patriots’ roadblock to the NFL title?

Nobody would be shocked to see the Philadelphia Eagles lose in Super Bowl 52, particularly given the absence of their franchise quarterback. But this might serve as additional motivation for Philadelphia to deny New England its sixth NFL title. On September 25, 2016, the Philadelphia Eagles and Carson Wentz put the Steelers on notice that they had become a rising power in the NFL—trouncing the Black-and-gold 34-3 while completely stifling the vaunted Steelers’ offense. Barring Wentz’s season-ending ACL tear suffered in Week 14 during Philadelphia’s win over the Rams, it’s unlikely...

Time to put on my prognosticator hat one more time in this 2017-2018 season. Fans love predictions.

The National Football League’s culminating event is about to ensue on Sunday when the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles square off in Super Bowl 52, and while most feel the NFL is losing popularity, the league will likely hang onto their massive Super Bowl ratings as a reason the game has never been more popular.
