The NFL Network is Running Two Eagles Specials Next Week

Hey, guess what?

We’ve arrived at the regular season.

The Eagles open with the Falcons at home next Thursday and the NFL Network is highlighting your Super Bowl champions with a pair of specials on the eve of the big game.

The first one is called “Philly Special: Doug Pederson and the 2017 Eagles” and premieres at 8 p.m. next Wednesday.

The second is called “America’s Game: 2017 Eagles” and will air immediately after the first one at 9 p.m, so if you were looking for the right time to sit on your ass and relive the Super Bowl season, this is your opportunity.

Here’s a blurb from the press release:

Philly Special: Doug Pederson and the 2017 Eagles airs on NFL Network, providing a behind-the-scenes look at some of the biggest moments and decisions that led to the Eagles’ first Super Bowl championship in franchise history. Building off of the success of 2015’s Do Your Job: Bill Belichick and the 2014 Patriots, 2016’s Worth the Wait: Gary Kubiak and the 2015 Denver Broncos and 2017’s Do Your Job Part II, this year’s edition features sitdown interviews with Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, owner Jeffrey Lurie, general manager Howie Roseman and others.  

The program will be narrated by Philly native and Tony Award winner Leslie Odom Jr. of Hamilton fame.

And the second special:

At 9:00 PM ET, America’s Game: 2017 Eagles premieres, featuring in-depth interviews with Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Brandon Graham and LeGarrette Blount telling the story of the Super Bowl LII champion Philadelphia Eagles.

Narrated by actor and Philadelphia native, David Boreanaz, America’s Game delves deep into the Eagles’ championship season. In the hour-long show, Wentz, Foles, Graham and Blount recount the season in their own words, concluding with the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory.

This year’s edition of America’s Game is the 52nd episode of the long-running special which celebrates the Super Bowl champions.

If you need me next Wednesday night, I’ll be on my couch watching the NFL Network.
