It’s been said so many times that, at this point, it has to be considered cliche, but the NFL is truly a week-to-week league. ‘Round1’, as Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni would say led to a double-digit road win. ‘Round 2’ looked much different.

This one unfolded like a good boxing match. After a feeling-out process for most of the first half, before the San Francisco 49ers punched the Eagles hard with a 97-yard drive ahead of the break.

San Francisco jumped out to a 14-point lead and held off an Eagles rally to close things out. The Birds have a lot to be proud of here. They went toe to toe with a Niners team that many believe will make a lot of noise.

Sure, they lost, and that’s probably what most will focus on after this one, but Philadelphia had a much bigger loss to close this one out.

The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly lost Brandon Graham for the season.

Two weeks are in the books for the Philadelphia Eagles, and it appears that their final 15 will be played without their emotional leader on defense, team captain Brandon Graham. After limping off of the field, sources, including trusted Eagles voice Derrick Gunn and NBC Sports Philadelphia’s John Clark, have reported that B.G.’s injury is a torn Achilles. It appears that he’s done for the season.

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni spoke with the media shortly after this one. So far, he doesn’t have a ton of news on starting right guard Brandon Brooks, who was also unable to complete the game due to injury, but until something is known, it appears that Philly’s second-round draft choice in 2021, Landon Dickeson will take over in the starting role.

This is terrible news. Graham is coming off of a Pro Bowl season in 2020, his first. He’s also on a one-year deal. Clearly, it’s too early to make assumptions, but it’s hard not to look ahead and ask questions.
