Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …

NFC Hierarchy/Obituaries: Week 17 Edit – PhillyVoice
On the surface, the Eagles’ loss to Dallas might be written off as a not-so-meaningful game, but if you’re an Eagles fan looking for reasons to worry, there are plenty, including: Saturday night was what Jonathan Gannon had planned. still look like quarterbacks playing well? When will the list of injuries stop piling up, and how many more could they suffer in the future because they couldn’t get the job done in Dallas? Will Jalen Hurts’ throwing ability be affected by his shoulder injury on his return? If the Eagles win on New Year’s Day against the Saints, they can breathe a sigh of relief, lick their wounds, and start preparing for the promotional round. Otherwise…

Eagles Christmas wish list for the NFL Draft – BGN
The Eagles have one of the best defenses in the league and a line that now has three different players with double sacks. However, few know better than Howie Roseman that you can never stop reloading in the trenches. Although Josh Sweat, Haason Reddick and Jordan Davis are young stalwarts, they can continue to add young and dynamic talent to keep this line one of the best in the league for years to come.

NFL Division Races: Who will win NFC East, AFC South, AFC North, NFC South? -ESPN+
The NFC East is still a race because of three bouncing balls. In a wildly entertaining 40-34 slugfest on Saturday between the Cowboys and Eagles, the difference between winning and losing looked like three fumbles, each of which was recovered by the home side. Here’s how they swung: With a seven-point lead in the third quarter, Philadelphia quarterback Gardner Minshew and Boston running back Scott missed a rally, which the Cowboys recovered at the Eagles’ 37-yard line. They turned the short field into a five-play touchdown. After an Eagles touchdown restored the seven-point lead, Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott was sacked in midfield. The Cowboys got the ball back on their own 38-yard line, preventing the Eagles from getting short ground. After another sack, they converted one of the game’s key plays as they collected a third-and-30 with a pitch to TY Hilton, scoring another touchdown four plays later. The Eagles took over with 2:24 left in the game down three points, but running back Miles Sanders fumbled for a second straight week. The Cowboys recovered on the Philadelphia 21-yard line, allowing them to take time on the clock. We’ll get to their decision to throw a field goal in a moment, but in doing so they earned six points. Those three digs produced 10 points for the Cowboys and robbed the Eagles of a possession that would typically generate around 3.1 points. If the Eagles recover even one of those three fumbles and nothing else changes, their chances of winning increase dramatically. Forcing fumbles is a skill, but once those fumbles hit the ground, who gets them back is random.

DeVonta Smith and AJ Brown Make History Together – NBCSP
DeVonta Smith and AJ Brown are one of the most explosive and productive wide receiver tandems in the NFL. And here’s the best part: Smith is 24 and the Eagles control his contract until 2025, and Brown is 25 and under contract until 2026. They’re not going anywhere. Smith on Saturday in Dallas had another monster game — his second straight 100-yard game and his third in the last four weeks — and topped 1,000 yards in his sophomore season. He’s only the third wide receiver the Eagles have drafted in the last 30 years with a 1,000-yard receiving season, along with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. Brown also recorded his second straight 100-yard game and third in four weeks, taking his season total to 1,304 yards, already fifth in Eagles history but just 28 yards shy of second place. Brown, who will play at least one more game and possibly two, needs 106 yards to break Mike Quick’s franchise record of 1,409 yards set in 16 games in 1983.

NFL Week 16 Fantasy Football Recap: Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles – PFF
The Cowboys have been one of the best teams this season at slowing down tight ends and also one of the worst at stopping wide receivers. It’s no surprise that both of the Eagles’ starting receivers had 100-yard games, but Goedert wasn’t thrown so far to know that, regardless of the injury. The Eagles play the New Orleans Saints Next week a team that has been equally good at slowing down tight ends, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from putting Goedert back into his fantastic starting lineups if he was careful this week.

Get off the Tua Tagovailoa train – Football Outsiders
Dallas Cowboys-at-Philadelphia Eagles will make a big NFC Championship Game. The Cowboys proved they could beat any NFL team on Saturday as they rallied from 10-0, 27-17 deficits to beat the Eagles 37-34. The Cowboys spent Week 15 against the Jaguars and (let’s face it) Week 14 against the Texas Proving they can lose to any NFL team, their Christmas Eve comeback and late-game defensive stoppage was an encouraging change of pace. The Eagles, meanwhile, have shown they are hardly helpless without Jalen Hurts. They should be able to wrap up home advantage in the NFC Playoffs Next week against the New Orleans Saints, who gave the world a welcome gift by knocking out the Cleveland Browns in a 17-10 nap. The Eagles’ biggest problems right now are the sudden, newly developed habits of making cluster turnovers and making critical errors in high-leverage situations (like dropping a bomb to TY Hilton on the third and 30) . The Cowboys’ biggest problem right now is that there’s nothing sudden or new about these habits for them.

Robert Kraft’s Hall of Fame credentials and what’s next: Mike Sando’s pick six – The Athletic
Frequent rushes and shoves can increase the number of times quarterbacks take hard hits, raising fears that their bodies could break down prematurely, even if they avoid a catastrophic injury by rushing. Cam Newton, Michael Vick and Robert Griffin III ranked among the leaders in rushes and scrambles designed per departure among quarterbacks who entered the NFL since 2000. None ranked among the leaders in quarterback longevity. Hurts, Justin Fields, Jackson, Kyler Murray and Josh Allen are among the current players with high use of these mannerisms. Hurts’ Eagles and Fields’ Bears have earned praise for matching their offenses to what both players offer as runners. Both quarterbacks suffered shoulder injuries while making runs designed for minimal gains. They might slide more, run less, or find the right balance.

Burning questions as 2022 NFL playoff picture takes shape – NFL.com
5) Will the Eagles keep the NFC number 1? 1 seed? Yes. They are the most complete team in the league, and quarterback Jalen Hurts is the rising tide that will keep them above challenges from Minnesota, San Francisco and Dallas. It’s unclear if Hurts will miss a second straight game with his shoulder injury, but the Eagles are deep enough to be able to handle the Saints without him. If not, he could be healthy enough to return for the season finale against the Giants, who they beat 48-22 two weeks ago.

Dallas Cowboys playoff photo: Bucs win on Sunday night makes Cowboys playoff game in Tampa more likely – Reuters
Even if and when they win their division, the Buccaneers are locked into the top four seeds within the NFC. As stated many times, the Eagles can win the NFC East with any Cowboys loss or win they get on their own (which they couldn’t do on Saturday by the way) and if Dallas is going to be the joker, then they will only be the No. 5 seed, which means they will visit the Bucs. It would make for a very interesting Week 18 for Dallas and Tampa Bay. How seriously would either team take their regular season finale knowing not only that they’re heading to the playoffs a week later, but knowing specifically who they’ll be playing in the Wildcard Round. Of course, this speculation is pointless if this set of things doesn’t happen in week 17. But be prepared. The Cowboys are most likely heading to Tampa Bay.

What are the chances? Washington Commanders open as home favorites against Cleveland Browns – Hogs Haven
The Washington Commanders lost a must-see primetime game to the New York Giants last Sunday night, then traveled the country in a short week to face the San Francisco 49ers. They were big underdogs there, and the final score was a 37-20 loss. Washington remains the 7th seed in the NFC playoffs due to the sea ​​hawks and the Lions lose. They are half a game ahead of the Seahawks and Lions, and also have the Packers move up the leaderboard if they win against the dolphins today.

Tua Tagovailoa threw the worst Christmas interception – SB Nation
The Miami Dolphins had one more chance to win the game against the Green Bay Packers in the final practice of their Week 16 Christmas Day game. The Packers had just scored a field goal to extend their lead to 26-20, and Tua Tagovailoa and Miami had two minutes left to run down the field for a game-winning touchdown. Instead, the Packers froze the game two games later by intercepting Tagovailoa for the third time in the afternoon. Packers DB Rasul Douglas grabbed the game-ending interception to freeze the win and keep the Packers’ slim playoff hopes alive. The Dolphins appeared to have Tyreek Hill open in the middle, but instead Tagovailoa tried to feed the ball into Mike Gesicki on the outside. He flew the thrower in and Douglas stepped in for the easy pick. It’s just a terrible blow.
