A Philadelphia Eagles legend and a rookie close out a list of heroes.

Hero: Jalen Reagor, Wide Reciever. 

Some controversy has been stirring inside the Philadelphia Eagles’ fanbase about whether or not rookie Jalen Reagor was a bad pick by the Birds. Though he hasn’t had many explosive plays, he made some tough catches on the Browns secondary.

Some might argue that Reagor isn’t being schemed properly. Don’t worry, there are quite a few Eagles fans that are with you. Still, it’s hard to ignore any of his four catches or his 52 yards receiving, including a beauty that was ripped away from a Cleveland defensive back. That’s how you make a play for your quarterback.

Hero: Jason Kelce, Center.

All-Pro center Jason Kelce is one tough guy. Out of all of the things that have gone wrong this season for the Eagles, especially along the offensive line, Kelce has been one of the guys that helped hold everything together, so when this team legend walked off of the field with an injury, fans were speechless. As you might expect, Kelce refused to go into the medical tent.

In the second half, Kelce returned to the lineup with an armbrace, and he still outplayed the rest of his teammates on the offensive line. Just take a second to think about that. An aging veteran playing with one functioning arm outplayed every other Eagles offensive lineman. Jason Kelce has once again cemented himself in the hearts of Birds fans everywhere.
