After the beating the Philadelphia Eagles received from the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, the Titans are the sort of opponent the Birds hoped to see. It’s no secret that 2-8 Tennessee isn’t a very good team. 7-3 Philadelphia should beat them handily. They need to get another win in the books to fully shake off what happened in Green Bay, and then focus all attention on their next task: Beating the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. 

But there is another game to be played between now and then. Offensively, there is no comparison between the teams. The Eagles average 406.8 yards per game, fourth best in the league, while the Titans put up almost 100 yards less with 309 per game. There’s only one team in the league worse than that, and it’s the Oakland Raiders. Tennessee puts up just 16.8 points per game, as opposed to the Eagles’ 29.9 points.

Philadelphia Eagles look to end Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau winning streak

Can the Philadelphia Eagles put an end to Aaron Rodgers’ streak of perfection at home?

The Philadelphia Eagles face a massive test in playing the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field this Sunday. Can the Birds challenge the conventional wisdom that the Pack just doesn’t lose at home when Aaron Rodgers is under center?

It will be tough, to say the least. Rodgers is the picture of perfection at home. He has gone 286 consecutive passes without an interception at Lambeau. That means that the last time it occurred was in 2012, Week 13. And because of Rodgers’ flawless play in Green Bay, the team has a home winning streak of 15, which dates back to their 2012 season opener.

Then there is this nugget:

The Packers average just under 42 points per game at home, tops in the NFL, and they’ve outscored opponents at Lambeau by 101 points, also the NFL’s largest home win margin. Continue reading ‘Philadelphia Eagles look to end Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau winning streak’

Ryans ruptured his Achilles during Sunday’s 31-21 win over the Houston Texans. Since the injury, a number of Eagles players have commented on the poor condition of the field at NRG Stadium, with LeSean McCoy saying it’s the worst on which he’s ever played.

Slowly but surely, the Philadelphia Eagles are returning to health. Coming off of the bye, Wednesday’s practice saw the return of LG Evan Mathis, C Jason Kelce, RB Darren Sproles and LB Mychal Kendricks in limited action at practice. That’s gotta make you smile. – Birds 24/7

The Birds’ defense did a phenomonal job of shutting down the New York Giants in Week 6. But we’re still waiting to see consistency out of the D, which is a must if this team is truly going to be a contender. – CSNPhilly  Continue reading ‘Morning Muse: Philadelphia Eagles slowly but surely return to health’
