The Eagles have a tough task ahead of them on Sunday Night Football.
What a difference a week makes. The Philadelphia Eagles took the field in Week 6 knowing that Sydney Brown and Darius Slay would be out of the lineup. Well, at least they could rely on Reed Blankenship and the new guy Bradley Roby, right? Not so fast as Lee Corso would say. Now, Reed and Roby are out, and signs appear to be pointing towards Slay and Sydney suiting up.
There were roster additions. Josiah Scott is back. He was signed off of the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad. Philly has also added Julio Jones... Wait... What?
Next up on the Eagles' schedule is a home date with the AFC East-leading Miami Dolphins. These two proud franchises have met on the field 15 times to play a football game. The Fins won the most recent meeting and hold a 9-6 edge in the all-time series.
Tua Tagovailoa finds himself as an early MVP candidate. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle get a ton of attention nationally, and rightfully so. Believe it or not, however, Miami has some playmakers on the defensive side of the ball and a few other guys that make this high-powered offensive machine hum.
This is their story. They have plans of wrecking Week 7 and 'Kelly Green Night'.
