Welcome to this week’s edition of the Eagles Weekly Recap. To no surprise, the Eagles added another mark to their crowded win column with a 29-17 Week 8 victory of the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football. The Eagles have yet another primetime showdown on the horizon, but before we got to kickoff, let’s recap all the latest happenings involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
- Tomorrow night, the Philadelphia Eagles will make their 2022 Monday Night Football debut as they host the Washington Commanders. The Eagles’ last meeting with the Commanders during Week 3 ended with the Birds flying away with a 24-8 victory. This time around, the Commanders will be without former Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz who underwent finger surgery three weeks ago. Kickoff for tomorrow night’s NFC East match-up is scheduled for 8:15 p.m.
- On the injury front, cornerback Avonte Maddox will miss tomorrow night’s game with a hamstring injury. It is expected that Josiah Scott will fill in for Maddox.
- The Eagles dished out a pair of roster moves this week. The team signed safety Andre Chachere from their practice squad to the active roster. The Eagles also signed offensive tackle Fred Johnson to the practice squad. Prior to signing to with the Eagles, the undrafted Johnson spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals, and Tampa bay Buccaneers.
- Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni may be looking towards taking home some hardware at the conclusion of the season. Sirianni is currently the clear favorite (+105) to win the NFL’s Coach of the Year title. The proof has most certainly been in the performance for the second-year coach, pushing the Eagles to a perfect 8-0 record to start the season with his stellar leadership on and off the field.
That’s all for this week. Stay tuned with Total Sports Live for the latest involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
