The Philadelphia Eagles flex their muscles after a Week 15 win, and some of the fan base weighs in on their favorite team’s playoff chances. It’s all here in ‘The Roundup’.
We dare you to say you predicted this one. Almost no one did. The Philadelphia Eagles walked into the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and took control in a game against a Rams team that they were supposed to be outclassed by.
Philly had injuries, seemingly no momentum to speak of, and a quarterback that hadn’t made a start since early in 2018’s regular season. There was just one thing. The Nick Foles we saw in the first couple of weeks of this season didn’t resemble the Nick Foles we saw in last season’s NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl.
That is, he didn’t until Week 15. Then, he just walked into the stadium of one the NFC’s best teams, and transformed into the guy we’ve seen all along. Nick is just a guy that plays at his absolute best when he absolutely has to.
Eagles players reacted to the surprise victory on social media:
We could do this all day, but we’ll move on.
Fans aren’t giving up.
Last night, we were reminded of what it means to be a fan.
‘The Birds’ have frustrated everyone who has ever cheered for this team at various points of the season.
They’ve confused us about whether or not their heads are actually into what they are doing.
They’ve even made some of us feel like throwing something at our television sets.
Still, even with all of that being said, tell the truth. When, it seemed as though this team had a shot to win against a high-powered Rams team, you were just as excited about this game as any Eagles game you’ve ever watched. Weren’t you?
Believe it or not, with a 7-7 record after 14 games. Philly still isn’t eliminated from playoff contention. They close the season with a home game versus the Houston Texans and a road game versus their division rivals, the Washington Redskins.
A good portion of the fan base hasn’t given up hope on a postseason berth. Take a look:
We turn to the voice of everyone’s beloved ‘Birds’, Merrill Reese, to put it all in perspective.
Enough said. Eagles fans and players should enjoy this one for a few more hours, and then, it’s time to move on to the Texans.
