Philadelphia Eagles players react to the end of the 2018-2019 season
How do the Philadelphia Eagles feel about the 2018-2019 season after falling short in the Divisional Round of the playoffs?
That’s all she wrote for the Philadelphia Eagles 2018-2019 season. It wasn’t a simple year by any means, and the Eagles had a pretty thrilling ride throughout the season for the most part. For a moment there, it seemed like the Eagles were on the road to repeating, as the magic was starting to flash once again in the NFL playoffs. Ultimately though, the Eagles came up short and were defeated on the road by the New Orleans Saints for the second time this year.
It’s an unfortunate situation considering how fast the Eagles started against the Saints. Right away in the first quarter, the Eagles had a turnover, along with 14 points. Since those couple of meaningful drives for the Birds, they lost their mojo and struggled tremendously to get it back. And after allowing 20 unanswered points throughout the game, the Eagles were devastatingly sent home packing as a tipped ball from Alshon Jeffery was picked off in Saints territory to seal the deal on the game.
Not only did the Eagles lose the overall game, but they suffered many injuries throughout the night. It all started with the offensive lineman Brandon Brooks, who was carted off within the first quarter of the game. And after that, the Eagles started dropping like flies. Most of their injured players would eventually return to the game, but for the most part, the Eagles were pretty banged up throughout the game. All in all, the end to the magical round was an upsetting one but the Eagles are all trying to remain positive. Here’s a handful of players reactions after the game.
