Welcome back to the next edition of the Eagles Weekly Recap. After an exhilarating 38 – 35 week one win over the Detroit Lions, the Philadelphia Eagles look to keep the momentum going into week two. Before tomorrow night’s kickoff, let’s look at the top stories of the week from the Eagles.
- Tomorrow night, the Philadelphia Eagles will complete a Monday Night Football double-header when they host Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings in their home-opener. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. live on ESPN.
- In key injury news, the Eagles announced Tuesday that defensive end Derek Barnett will miss the remainder of the 2022 season after tearing his ACL in Sunday afternoon’s victory over the Detroit Lions.
- In an effort to replace Barnett’s production, the Eagles announced they signed defensive end Janarius Robinson from the Vikings’ practice squad. Robinson was a fourth-round draft pick in the 2021 NFL draft, but has not played a regular season snap due to a leg injury. He previously started in 28 games for the Florida State Seminoles.
- For all those who are either hoping for an Eagles game in February or simply looking for where to place your bets, Fansided reports that the Philadelphia Eagles currently have the second-best odds of any team in the NFC to reach Super Bowl LVII on FanDuel Sportsbook. As of this week, the Eagles only trail the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of all NFC teams, and hold the fourth spot overall in Super Bowl appearance hopes with the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs taking the top two spots.
- A congratulations goes to cornerback Zech McPhearson for being named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for week one of the season. McPhearson came up huge late in the game, adjusting along with the receiving team to secure a surprise onside kick from the Lions. The result of the drive was a one-yard Boston Scott touchdown.
