Welcome to another edition of the Eagles Weekly Recap. The Philadelphia Eagles are nothing short of dominating right now, standing strong as the last remaining undefeated team in the NFL after their crushing 24–8 victory over the Washington Commanders. The Eagles are looking to make it four in a row this week, but before that, let’s recap all the happening this week from South Philly.
- This afternoon, the Eagles will welcome back an old friend in former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson as he and the Jacksonville Jaguars visit for a rainy week four showdown. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. and can be seen on CBS.
- In this afternoon’s injury news, the Eagles will be without two key players as running back Boston Scott (ribs) and cornerback Avonte Maddox (ankle) will both miss todays game. Look for running back Trey Sermon to be active in Scott’s absence, while the Eagles may move starting safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson to the nickel position for Maddox.
- To continue with the player superlatives starting with Darius Slay’s NFC Defensive Player of the Week recognition after week two, two more Eagles join him with high praise. Defensive end Brandon Graham was named the NFC Defensive Player of the week for week three after his dominating performance against Carson Wentz and the Commanders. Graham finished with two and a half sacks and five hits against Wentz. In addition, a huge congratulations goes to quarterback Jalen Hurts who was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month after near perfect performances through the first three weeks. Hurts finished the month with 916 passing yards, 167 rushing yards, and an impressive 106.5 passer rating.
- In some exciting news, the NFL announced they will debut their new black alternate helmets during week 12 when they take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. They will also wear them in weeks 17 and 18 when they play the New Orleans Saints, and New York Giants respectively.
- Following in the footsteps of the Philadelphia 76ers, it was announced the Eagles have partnered with Wendy’s for their own version of the Frosty Freeze-Out. Starting this afternoon, if the Eagles prevent the opposing team from scoring a first-quarter touchdown, fans will be able to receive a free Wendy’s Frosty through Eagles Mobile app. The promotion will apply to both home and away games throughout the season.
