Your Philadelphia Eagles are 4-1. That’s right, with a big win over the Arizona Cardinals yesterday, the Eagles are atop the NFC East standings and are among the best in the whole NFC.

To make things even better the Giants lost, the Cowboys fell to the Packers, and the Redskins had a bye.

Chris had a lot of great content in the game thread from yesterday, but before the game even got underway Sal Paolantonio rode with Doug Pederson to the stadium.

Former Redskins quarterback, RGIII likes what the Eagles are doing:

Many liked the music at the Linc yesterday, especially the tribute to the late Tom Petty:

The players weren’t the only ones to showcase their skills on the field yesterday:

After the game, Donovan McNabb was in the locker room and his kids got autographs from Carson Wentz. Number Five then stopped to talk to NBC Sports Philadelphia:

Also, after the game the NFL came knocking on Nelson Agholor’s locker as they couldn’t believe he had as good of a day as he did:

The latest Crossing Broadcast dropped this morning and talks Eagles-Cardinals.

The roundup:

Peyton Manning saw a statue in his honor unveiled and had his number retired yesterday before the Colts won in overtime. He set up one final play with the guys who helped him get to that moment:

Shortly after this ceremony was the National Anthem, where several 49ers players took a knee. That prompted Vice President Mike Pence, who was in attendance, to leave the game. This was part of the vice president’s statement afterwards:

“I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem…”

On the surface this may seem like one thing, but this reporting leads many to believe it was all set up:

Not only did the Giants lose yesterday, but several receivers went down with injuries, including Odell Beckham Jr., who has a broken ankle. There are several unemployed receivers willing to step-in for the G-Men:

Imagine being a Dolphins fan:

Tonight’s Monday Night Football game might have the highest ratings of the season as the trailer for the newest Star Wars movie will debut during the Bears-Vikings contest.

Saturday was a good day for college football as well, with both Oklahoma and Michigan getting upset by unranked teams. Those losses allowed for Penn State, who won big over Northwestern, to move to third in the latest Associated Press Top 25.

CBS’s Jay Feely did not have as good of a day in the booth on Saturday:

Down in Florida, the home area of Tom Petty, there was a GREAT tribute to him:

The Sixers are still winless in the pre-season and got some bad news with Richaun Holmes, who has a fractured left wrist. According to the team’s release, he will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

However, those on NBA TV aren’t completely buying in to The Process yet, but still believe the team is playoff bound:

If the team needs some help down the stretch to ensure it reaches the playoffs, it could call LeGarrette Blount:

The Sixers are back in action tonight against the Boston Celtics at 7:30 p.m.

Former MLBer Keith Hernandez claims he never heard of Seinfield before being asked to be on the show.

The Phillie Phanatic made the news as well, Weekend Update on SNL:

On the diamond, the Yankees staved off elimination with a 1-0 win over the Indians last night as did the Red Sox who defeated the Astros 10-3 to keep the series going.

Today all four series in the AL and NL are in action with back-to-back-back-to-back games starting at 1:08 p.m. and the last beginning at 10:08 p.m.

It’s Monday, the Eagles won, and everyone should be feeling like they can hit a home run today:

  1. How can 97.5 the fanatic call themselves the Eagles station, when they don't even carry the Eagles games? says:

    And also, can those losers @ 97.5 the fanatic stop with the Doug Pedersen hatred, as it pulls in other lowlifes to chime with their anti Doug Pedersen stance.

    And btw, who is Anthony Gargano and that grotesque looking physique of his, to be critical of coach Pedersen when Anthony Gargano can’t even discipline himself enough to lose some weight.
