The Eagles got the first punch in.And for once

  • Youth Ron Jaworski Jerseys , Nick Foles didn’t finish it.The Saints advanced to next week’s NFC Championship Game against the Rams with a 20-14 win over the Eagles Sunday, overcoming an early 14-0 deficit, and needing an interception late to seal it.It was a shaky start for the Saints, but a bold fake punt call in the second quarter, an odyssey of a touchdown drive in the third quarter, and the sustained brilliance of wide receiver Michael Thomas carried the day.Thomas finished with 12 catches for 171 yards and a touchdown, and was the guy Drew Brees was always looking for in key situations. He scored the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter to cap an 18-play, 92-yard, 11 minute and 29-second drive.At that point Ron Jaworski Jerseys Stitched , the Eagles defense looked gassed, and even with defensive tackle Fletcher Cox coming back from a foot injuring and creating consistent pressure, they were short-handed against an offense with so many weapons.But with all the good work the Saints did, Foles still had a chance at a game-winning drive, and you generally like his chances in that situation. But his pass just before the two-minute warning was picked off by Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore (his second of the day), allowing the Saints to ice it. The ball went through the hands of wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, underscoring how close the Eagles were to making the kind of comeback Foles has become known for.It keeps the Saints perfect in their own building in the postseason under coach Sean Payton, with a chance to extend the streak next week.They beat the Rams 45-35 at the Superdome in Week Nine, and the expectation will be that two dynamic offenses will provide quite an encore Womens Shareef Miller Jersey , with a berth in the Super Bowl on the line.Eagles Fans Rooting Guide for NFL Week 2 Games The Philadelphia Eagles are back in action today for the first time since beating the Atlanta Falcons on September 6. The Eagles are off to an ideal start at 1-0 but this weekend could potentially get even better for them. With that in mind, here’s what Eagles fans should be rooting for on Sunday.EAGLES GAMEPhiladelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Hm, tough call but I’d say you should be rooting for the Eagles in this one. Philadelphia can advance to being 2-0 in a very competitive NFC conference with a win. Root for the Eagles to win.NFC EAST GAMESWashington Redskins at Indianapolis Colts: Do us proud, Frank Reich. Find a way to beat Washington. I don’t think the upset is very likely, but it certainly would be nice to see. Root for the Colts to win.New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys: This is a tough one. But first of all, don’t say you’re rooting for a tie. That’s just unlikely and it’s actually less damaging for both teams to tie than it is for one to lose. Let’s be smarter than that. The goal here is for the bigger threat to the Eagles to lose. With that in mind, I think there’s an argument to be made the Giants actually have a higher ceiling than the Cowboys do. We’ve seen Eli Manning and the Giants inexplicably get hot before. That was a different regime, of course, and I’m not fully expecting them to do that again Zach Brown Jersey , but I think it’s at least possible. I think I feel less threatened by the Cowboys considering Dak Prescott doesn’t look good and their coaching staff is even more incompetent than Pat Shurmur’s. So with that in mind, a Giants loss could be preferable. But then again, seeing Cowboys fans lose their minds as their team falls to 0-2 would be pretty sweet. But then again then again, it’d be better for Dallas to fool themselves into thinking Prescott is their long-term answer at quarterback as they top out around 8-8. I’m going to say this is almost a win-win for Eagles fans considering one of these teams is going to face a very big uphill battle after dropping to 0-2. Root against the Giants, I guess.
