"Hey, if you're 5-0, come to the bus." — Miles Sanders exiting the visitors locker room at State Farm Stadium
Who are the experts taking in Sunday’s Week 5 matchup between the Washington Commanders [1-3] and the Tennessee Titans [2-2]?
According to NFL Pickwatch, 82% of the expert pickers, who come from USA TODAY, ESPN, NFL.com, Sporting News, The Athletic and a host of other outlets, are rolling with the Titans in this game.
Look, we aren’t surprised the majority of those picking games are going with Tennessee, but 82% of the pickers? Both teams enter this game with a slew of injuries. The Titans are a different team offensively without star wideout A.J. Brown but could have their best passing game of the season against Washington’s struggling cornerbacks
Rasul Douglas dropped a handful of F-bombs in his postgame session with reporters and was perplexed at the penalties called on him. Pointed out three came from the same ref and said he was told after his late tackle unnecessary roughness that he was "bigger than" Darius Slayton.
Injury Update: G Landon Dickerson (leg) is questionable to return.
Jason Kelce just jogged out of the tunnel with his helmet on. #Eagles
Nick Sirianni: "What a great time to be a Philly sports fan!"
Cameron Dicker now tied with Mark Simoneau for 532nd place in Eagles history with one career point scored.
Sua Opeta hold stalled that drive. (Didn't look like much of a hold to me, unless it happened after what they showed on the replay.)
Haason Reddick gets the #Eagles defense off the field. Big play in a big spot.
The Philadelphia Eagles will be missing one of their starting offensive linemen as they take on the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium this afternoon. Left tackle Jordan Mailata, originally listed as doubtful to play with a shoulder injury and then downgraded to out, is among the Eagles’ inactive players for Week 5.
Also inactive is running back Boston Scott, who was questionable with a rib injury.
With Mailata out, Jack Driscoll could start at tackle for the Eagles.
Maddox, who has an ankle injury, could be replaced as the team’s nickel cornerback by Josiah Scott, who is listed behind Maddox on the Eagles’ depth chart
Cameron Dicker's FG at 1:48 was the Eagles' first game-winning FG in the final two minutes of a game since Jake Elliott made a 35-yarder with 0:00 left to beat the Texans 32-30 on Dec. 23, 2018.
Jason Kelce on his back, clearly in pain. Cam Jurgens is about to get his first snaps as a pro at center.
Josh Sweat not tricked at all on that play #Eagles
C.J. Gardner-Johnson with his first INT in an Eagles uniform. Eagles' run of takeaways continue.
Great rep by Jordan Davis on the 2nd-and-1 #Eagles
Kyzir White spying on Murray during a 3rd-and-10 and #Eagles get off the field after one first down. Covey return for 15. Very nice PR
Eagles coach Nick Sirianni has spent the last several minutes calling one ref over after the next to yell about that non-call on the Britain Covey punt return.
It took five weeks to whittle away The Feeley pretenders. Ian Book continues on the journey alone, just him and mother nature. twitter.com/ZBerm/status/1…
The Eagles are about eight hours away from kicking off a road matchup against Zach Ertz, Kyler Murray, and the Arizona Cardinals.
The Birds are a slight favorite and will look to start the season 5-0, with a matchup against the Cowboys looming in Week 6.
Jalen Hurts continues to cement his status and a new contract this season.
At the same time, Jonathan Gannon’s retooled defense will look to continue its strong play.
With the team settled in and prepared, here’s an updated look at the 53-man roster with news and notes
David Sills and Reed Blankenship are making their Eagles debut. The Eagles have all four of their UDFAs active today. twitter.com/ZBerm/status/1…
Milton Williams walking off the field with trainers #Eagles
Eno Benjamin making the most of an extended opportunity. He scores from 11 yards out. He has 25 yards rushing on eight carries and three catches for 28. Knotted 17-17 | 9:43 left.
One first down, but two plays to Rondale Moore net just one yard and the Cards punt. Cardinals were on silent count there on third down. The Eagles fans here can be heard.
This Sunday marks a huge test for the Arizona Cardinals. They managed to get back to .500 with a win over the Panthers last week, but have failed to beat the two good teams they’ve played.
The Eagles pose a great opportunity to advance to 3-2 on the season and be guaranteed to be at least .500 before the return of DeAndre Hopkins.
Philadelphia, of course, will be looking to remain undefeated and start the season 5-0. They have one of the more complete rosters in the NFL and are a tough team to beat. There are question marks about the level of competition they’ve played, however
Kyler Murray is going to be pissed when they lower his awareness rating on Madden now.
Eagles very lucky on that Marquise Brown drop. Would have been a TD.
"it's not on one f*cking guy." NSFW: Cardinals veteran offensive lineman Justin Pugh steps in to defend kicker Matt Ammendola, who missed the game-tying field goal against the Eagles @12News @12SportsAZ pic.twitter.com/8UkWRvasVk
Zach Ertz with the screen pass, and Ertz has a reception against every team in the NFL now.
Cardinals RB James Conner is questionable to return due to a ribs injury.
Zach Allen continued his tear of batted passes. If my math is correct, that was his fourth in the last two games.
RB Darrel Williams is questionable to return (knee) pic.twitter.com/8rOExyXhiU
Kyler doing Kyler things. Buys enough time to find A.J. Green for a first down, and the Cardinals part of this crowd is getting more life.
The Cardinals scared Hurts into a near-INT -- but Jalen Thompson collides with the Eagles receiver, the ball is dropped and Thompson is hurt. Insult to injury: Cardinals have to use their last timeout.
Not sure why the Eagles seem insistent on using the Kliff Kingsbury playbook at the moment.
That's just awful awareness by everyone. The entire country knew Vance Joseph was blitzing there. He's one of the more predictable play-callers there is, but they haven't caught on somehow.
J.J. Watt heavy pressure on Hurts and Hurts gets rid of it as he goes down. Another Eagles punt.
Cardinals are also playing with a backup kicker. Matt Prater is out. #Eagles
Cardinals are without starting center Rodney Hudson today and DL Rashard Lawrence. Another week where the #Eagles should have the edge on both lines.
Cardinals RB Jonathan Ward won't return with a hamstring injury. It's a Eno game for sure.
Byron Murphy jumping into the passing lane a hair too slow. Two recent opportunities to pick off Hurts. Hurts doing a great job of finding Devonta Smith after rolling out.
The Arizona Cardinals have one of their toughest matchups of the year Sunday afternoon as they host the 4-0 Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5. The actual game will start at 1:25 p.m. Arizona time and we will see how it actually plays out.
But if it is anything like the simulation of the game I ran Saturday night on Madden NFL 23, Cardinals fans will go home happy.
The simulation was adjusted to have no Rodney Hudson for the Cardinals and no Jordan Mailata or Avonte Maddox for the Eagles.
They start quickly, building a 24-7 first-half lead, but the Eagles rally back and tie the game but, thanks to a drive led by Kyler Murray and a 29-yard Matt Ammendola field goal with 28 seconds left in the game give the Cardinals a 27-24 win
