How this group responds to blowing a 17 to 3 lead last Sunday should let us know just how much fight this team has left in them. The Eagles’ Week 5 opponent http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles.com/cheap-darren-sproles-jersey , the Minnesota Vikings, arguably have more reason to be desperate than Philly given their 1-2-1 record. But it’d be disappointing to see that show up on the field. The Eagles need to look like the team playing with real urgency. Despite their shaky start, the Eagles should still inspire some faith. Their 17-2 home record has been brought up a billion times this week. That shouldn’t be easily dismissed. That’s a significant advantage working in their favor.Another reason to feel good is that the Eagles still have one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Carson Wentz looked really sharp against the Titans in Week 4 despite the fact he was dealing with a ton of pressure and drops. This offensive line just needs to protect him better. We know they’re capable of doing it.We also know the Eagles defensive line is capable of disrupting the Vikings’ passing offense. Minnesota has allowed the most quarterback pressures in the league this season. The Eagles MUST make life hard on Kirk Cousins and not give him all day to throw against this secondary. Cousins had a tendency to turn the ball over. It’s critical that the Eagles come up with some takeaways. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have at least a little bit of uneasiness heading into this one since the Eagles have been inconsistent. But the truth is the Vikings have looked worse through four games. The Eagles have what it takes to win this game and I believe they will. I expect the play in the trenches to remind of us how the Eagles were so good in 2017. Wentz is going to put up touchdowns against a Vikings defense that’s allowing an average of 29.6 points per game since the NFC Championship Game earlier this year.The reigning Super Bowl champions are going to asset themselves today. The Eagles are going to build a lead comfortable enough to the point where Nick Foles gets to come in for the victory formation at the end of the game. Fans at the Linc will be doing the “FOLES!” chant in mockery of “SKOL.” The Eagles will be advancing to 3-2 while Minnesota drops to 1-3-1.Suggested format:Score prediction:Bold prediction:My predictions:Score prediction: 38-7, Eagles win.Bold prediction: The Eagles intercept Kirk Cousins three times, including one pick six by Sidney Jones.

Here’s what he had to say.I can’t help but feel like the Wentz return reports are all over the place lately. Let’s recap.On September 2 http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/jason-kelce-jersey-cheap , former NFL doctor David J. Chao said Wentz was still “multiple weeks away” and “more likely to start Week 7 (after a Thursday night game in Week 6) or Week 10 (after a bye in Week 9) than he is to start Week 2.”On September 6, in the hours leading up to the Eagles’ Week 1 game, NFL insider Ian Rapoport said Wentz is still “several weeks” away and he might not play “until maybe even October.”
Those two sentiments seem to match up. But then a new report emerged over the weekend.On September 9, NFL insider Chris Mortensen said Wentz “hasn’t been ruled out for Week 2” and the Eagles internally feel like they “wouldn’t be surprised if he’s ready for Week 3.” NFL insider Jay Glazer followed up by saying don’t expect Wentz to play in Week 2.Mort’s report lines up with a previous sentiment expressed by Peter King that Wentz could be ready for Week 3. It’s the most positive outlook from everything that’s been reported. So, what’s the make of all this? Given that information seems to be all over the place http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/rodney-mcleod-jersey-cheap , Garafolo’s “there’s no hard and fast plan right now” line seems accurate. It’s clear that the Eagles don’t want to rush Wentz. Really, no one does. No one is out there saying “Wentz needs to be rushed back so the Eagles can win more games now even if it means jeopardizing his future.”But the notion of “the longer you wait, there is less chance of a re-rupture” is a little silly in that, if you take it to the extreme, Wentz should just not play this year at all. Or ever again. There has to be a point where the risk is reasonably minimized and Wentz can be cleared to play again. As for when that’ll be Youth Jalen Mills Jersey , it seems like it’s anyone’s guess. In the meantime, the Eagles will continue to move forward with Foles. Eagles offensive coordinator Mike Groh said Philadelphia has decided on their starting quarterback for Sunday but he wouldn’t reveal who it was. He left that up to head coach Doug Pederson to address during his Wednesday presser. It’s very likely to be Foles once again.
