That leaves us with four fewer games to pick from this week.Thankfully I’ve found plenty of value in the games we do have to pick from. So let’s not waste any more time and try to continue the momentum we picked up with our 2-1 (3-1 if you followed the SportsLine bonus pick) from last week.Philadelphia Eagles (+9) at New Orleans SaintsThis…

The head coach made three decisions that will be under the microscope after a 27-20 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday (see observations). Here’s what Pederson and Eagles players said about the failed plays postgame. 3rd-and-2 screen to running back Corey Clement Trailing by seven with two minutes remaining, the Eagles tried to get Clement in space.

Eagles’ ugly, yet impressive, win keeps hope alive #sports #news

Eagles’ ugly, yet impressive, win keeps hope alive #sports #news

LONDON — His day started off with a fumble. Then an interception. Two drives in, Carson Wentz was 0-for-Wembley. It was the first time since a game against the Giants his rookie year that Wentz had turned the ball over on each of the Eagles’ first two possessions. “Adversity is going to strike in a season, adversity is going to strike within a game,” he said. “Sometimes you just make bad plays. You’ve got to bounce back from it. That really shows the type of player and character that you have.” Wentz…

Panthers 21, Eagles 17: Three great quarters and an epic collapse #sports #news

When he finished getting dressed, Carson Wentz sat at his locker staring at the floor by himself for a few minutes. “Extremely frustrated about this game,” he said later. “Really, just praying just to ease my mind and ease my heart going forward.” Wentz was disconsolate, and you can’t blame him. After a brilliant start, he endured a miserable finish, and the Eagles for only the third time in franchise history blew a 17-point lead going into the fourth quarter. Much of the blame will go to the defense, and…

Eagles Injury Update: Lane Johnson now questionable vs. Giants

Comparing last year’s defense to this year’s, searching for continuity on offense, pondering Wendell Smallwood’s ceiling and lots more in this week’s edition of Roob’s 10 random Eagles observations!  1. Really interesting and revealing to compare the Eagles’ 2017 defense after five games with this year’s defense after five games. Let’s take a look: The Eagles were 4-1 at this point last year and 2-3 now, but the defensive numbers are almost identical. The defense can certainly play better, especially on the road, but in just about every category the numbers…

If you still believe in the Eagles, now is the time to place a bet

If you expect the Eagles to turn their season around, now might be the right time to put some money on it.  Because as the Eagles have stumbled, their odds to win the division, conference and Super Bowl have continued to drop.

Their odds to win the NFC went from 9/1 to 11/1, and their odds to…

Sports sport Eagles stock up, stock down after 3rd preseason game

Sports sport We haven’t seen a lot from Mike Wallace this summer, and that could mean one of two things: 1. At 32 years old and in his 10th NFL season, Wallace has hit the veteran wall. He only caught one short pass in the preseason — a  meaningless three-yarder from Nick Foles in Cleveland Thursday night — and showed no sign of the big-play receiver who’s averaged 15 yards per catch throughout his career. OR 2. Wallace is the kind of veteran who knows exactly what he needs out…
