Welcome to this week’s edition of the Eagles Weekly Recap. We have reached the end of the regular season, and the 13–3 Philadelphia Eagles are looking to secure their 14th and final win of the season to finish atop of the NFC. Before we get into this week’s match–up, let’s recap all the latest happenings involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
- This afternoon, the Eagles will close out the 2022 regular season at Lincoln Financial Field as they host the New York Giants. While the Eagles are treating today’s game as a must–win, the Giants will likely rest most of their starters as they are set with the sixth seed in the NFC playoff picture. Kickoff for this afternoon’s game is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. and can be seen on FOX.
- Speaking of the playoff picture, the Eagles’ path to the top has become clear heading into this afternoon. The Eagles will win the NFC East and have the number one seed in the NFC with a win or tie over the Giants, or if both the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys lose should the Eagles lose.
- With the importance of today’s game heightened, the Eagles received great news on the injury front. Quarterback Jalen Hurts will make his return this afternoon after missing the last two games with a shoulder sprain. The defense will receive a huge boost as well as safety C.J. Gardner–Johnson (lacerated kidney), and defensive end Robert Quinn (knee) will both make their highly anticipated returns after both missing the last five games.
- In a few additional roster moves, the team once again signed punter Brett Kern to the active roster. The team waived guard Sua Opeta. The Eagles also placed linebacker Shaun Bradley (wrist) and defensive end Janarius Robinson (ankle) on Injured Reserve.
- After last Monday night’s devastating events surrounding Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffering a cardiac arrest on the field, the Eagles will join the league in support of Hamlin by outlining one of the threes in blue on the 30–yard–line in honor of Hamlin. Hamlin’s recovery has been nothing short of miraculous so far. Though still listed in critical condition, Hamlin is awake and communicating, and is even seen here with all smiles on Facetime with Philly rapper Meek Mill and former Sixers owner Michael Rubin. Hamlin also tweeted his gratitude Saturday in what was his first public statement since the incident.
That’s it for this week. Stay tuned with Total Sports Live for the latest involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
