Welcome to this week’s edition to the Eagles Weekly Recap. There are only five weeks left in the 2022 season, and the Philadelphia Eagles are looking to end one of their all-time great campaigns with nothing but victories. The Eagles are coming off an impressive 35-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans, and are looking to keep the wins coming. Before we get to this afternoon’s kickoff, let’s check out all the latest happenings involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
- This afternoon, the Eagles will head up I-95 to the Meadowlands to take on the division rival New York Giants for the first time this season. Much like last week, the Eagles will face a dominant running threat in running back Saquon Barkley. However, if the same defensive front from last week makes an appearance this afternoon, the Eagles’ worries will be few. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. and can be seen on FOX.
- In some positive injury news, cornerback Avonte Maddox has been activated off of the injured reserved list and will make his return this afternoon against the Giants. Maddox was sidelined the previous four games due to a hamstring injury. The Eagles will be without linebacker Shaun Bradley this afternoon due to a hamstring injury.
- The hits just keep on rolling for quarterback Jalen Hurts. For the second week in a row, Hurts has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, making him the first Eagle to win the recognition in back-to-back weeks. This comes off of another MVP-like performance as he threw for 380 yards and had four total touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans.
- While wide receiver A.J. Brown has been having a blast on the field to go along with his dominating performance, the NFL swooped back in for the second time this season with a fine for unsportsmanlike conduct. This $13,261.00 hit comes after his touchdown celebration where he was seen smacking his towel against the goal post.
- In some Pro Bowl news, three Eagles are currently leading vote-getters at their positions as of earlier this week: quarterback Jalen Hurts, center Jason Kelce, and defensive tackle Javon Hargrave. With the amount of talent stacked on the Eagles roster, it should be expected that more players will be selected to take part in the newly revamped Pro Bowl festivities at the end of the season.
That’s it for this week. Stay tuned with Total Sports Live for the latest involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
