Being one of the best players and a team captain on an 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles squad has its advantages. A.J. Brown's historic streak of consecutive games with 125 receiving yards or more finally ended on Sunday, but he has an NFL record on his resume to show for it after doing so in six games. Now, he gets to let his mind and body rest before Philly enters a gauntlet.
The Birds are idle in Week 10 thanks to a scheduled bye week. That's a good thing. It's time to let those nicks and bruises heal.
What's A.J. doing? Oh, he's chilling! Recently, he had a little fun on X at the expense of a loved one.
A.J. Brown playfully takes a jab at his nephew on social media.
We would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for this one, but it appears the NFC's Offensive Player of the Month had a conversation with his nephew, and he wasn't exactly satisfied with its outcome.
The spoils of war it seems... When your team sits alone atop the NFL with pro football's best record, the stress levels tend to decrease.
Again, nothing says 'positive vibes' like being 8-1 before a much-needed week off. It's good to see Number 11 enjoy himself because the road gets a little bumpy to close November and kickstart December. The Eagles will earn their money before Christmas.
Philly will need the break. Perhaps you have heard. They have a date with the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football to close Week 11's action.
That game is followed by games versus the Buffalo Bills, the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Seattle Seahawks from Week 12 to Week 15.
Sheesh! That's a murderer's row if we have ever seen one. Fear not Birds fans. Something tells us the team with the NFL's record will maintain that status as the close the book on the regular season and look ahead to postseason action.
