Welcome back to another edition of the Eagles Weekly Recap. The red-hot Philadelphia Eagles added another notch the the win column as they moved to an NFL-best 4-0 after a 29-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Eagles will look to extend the win-streak to five this afternoon. Before kickoff, let’s check out all the happenings from the week involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
- This afternoon, the Eagles will be out west as they take on the Arizona Cardinals. The game will see a special reunion as this will mark the first time the Eagles will face tight end Zach Ertz who previously spent eight seasons with the team, becoming one of Philly’s all-time greats. Kickoff for this afternoon’s game is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. and can be seen on FOX.
- The Eagles are facing a few key injuries heading into today’s game. Kicker Jake Elliot (ankle) and tackle Jordan Mailata (shoulder) will both be sidelined this afternoon after suffering injuries during last week’s victory. Linebacker Patrick Johnson (concussion), cornerback Avonte Maddox (ankle) both missed practice time this week. Cornerback Darius Slay (forearm) returned to full practice this week and is ready to go this afternoon.
- Keeping with the Elliot injury, the Eagles signed kicker Cameron Dicker to take over kicking duties. Dicker previously played for the Baltimore Ravens during their preseason to give starting kicker Justin Tucker rest.
- We’re another week in, and the NFC superlatives have not stopped for the Eagles. A congratulations goes to linebacker Haason Reddick who was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week after putting up a dominant two-sack and two-forced fumble performance against the Jaguars. Reddick joins Darius Slay and Brandon Graham who were both awarded the recognition, Zech McPherson who was the week one NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, and Jalen Hurts who was the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for September.
