  Eagles | Nick Foles already has playoff history    Thu Jan 18, 11:47 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is the first quarterback in NFL history to register a passer rating of 100 or more in each of his first two career playoff starts (minimum of 30 attempts), with the first one coming during the 2013 season and the most recent being the team's Divisional Round win Saturday, Jan. 13, against the Atlanta Falcons.

  Eagles | Jay Ajayi driven to avenge Miami decision    Wed Jan 17, 11:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi said that he's 'driven' to avenge the Miami Dolphins' decision to trade him earlier in the season and that he's trying to prove them wrong for shipping him out in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick. He added, 'I don't think it will be redemption until I win the Super Bowl. If we can get that done, then I'll have my redemption.'

Footballguys view: We aren't shocked he's motivated and while we understood his off-field attitude needed work, we still think the Dolphins pulled the rip cord too soon. Frankly, nobody seems to know what way is up in Miami. Ajayi and the Eagles face a tough task in the form of a good Minnesota defense this week. The top of the running backs are tight this week, but Ajayi could be decent value for his production - which should be solid - in DFS.

  Eagles | Nick Foles has been worse at home    Tue Jan 16, 04:57 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has thrown just one touchdown compared to two interceptions in five games played in Philadelphia this season. Meanwhile, he has thrown four touchdowns and zero interceptions in two road contests. The Eagles face the Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia in the NFC Championship this weekend.

Footballguys view: Foles will need a solid game to beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game. He took some time to get going in the Divisional Round, and Foles didn't have a great box score after the game. He didn't need to and the Eagles moved on. Those numbers and Foles' production will have to be better if they want to advance to the Super Bowl.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz ineffective in divisional win    Sat Jan 13, 09:03 PM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught three passes for 32 yards in a 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Footballguys view: Ertz was quiet in a semi-productive game for Nick Foles. He doesn't seem to be as central to the passing game as he was with Carson Wentz.

  Eagles | Torrey Smith has 39 yards in divisional win    Sat Jan 13, 08:58 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith caught three passes for 39 yards in a 15-10 NFC divisional playoff win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Footballguys view: Smith also drew a long pass interference penalty to open the game. The Eagles will need him to come up big next week facing one of the non-elite corners for Minnesota or New Orleans.

  Eagles | Alshon Jeffery leads team in receiving    Sat Jan 13, 08:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery caught four of five targeted passes for 61 yards and led his team in receiving Saturday, Jan. 13. The Eagles won the NFC Divisional playoff game, 15-10.

Footballguys view: Jeffery will face Marshon Lattimore or Xavier Rhodes next week, so his fantasy prospects for the NFC title game are dim.

  Eagles | LeGarrette Blount scores TD    Sat Jan 13, 08:36 PM

  Eagles | Jay Ajayi effective in divisional clash    Sat Jan 13, 08:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi ran 15 times for 54 yards and caught three passes for 44 yards in a 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Footballguys view: Ajayi lost a fumble early in the game, but he made up for that with the rest of his play. He gets about the same amount of touches per game for the Eagles, and that number did not rise much for the team's first postseason game. We'll see if Ajayi gets a larger role in the NFC Championship Game next week.

  Eagles | Nick Foles held without a TD in division game    Sat Jan 13, 08:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 23-for-30 for 246 yards in a 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Foles did not score a touchdown, nor was he intercepted.

Footballguys view: Foles was very effective as a passer on Saturday. He didn't seem rattled under pressure and made several key throws to keep drives alive (6-of-13 on third downs as a team). Expect a similar game plan for Foles in the NFC Championship Game next week.

  Eagles | John DeFilippo may not return    Sat Jan 13, 05:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo's contract will expire after the season, and he will be allowed to take an assistant coaching job with another team, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate the Seahawks were interested in DeFilippo as their new offensive coordinator, but that job may not be open much longer as Brian Schottenheimer is expected to be hired as their new OC. Assistant coaches can be told 'no' if they want to move on to another team, even if that move constitutes a promotion. With no contract for 2018, Filippo can leave the Eagles once they're done in the postseason.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) has resumed running following surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament.

  Eagles | Jay Ajayi has full practices    Thu Jan 11, 02:24 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Ajayi will be good to go and with Nick Foles, not Carson Wentz, under center see a lot of carries. While he hasn't been consistently producing big numbers, he should see success against Atlanta, a team which is rated just No. 20 against the run in Football Outsiders' DVOA.

  Eagles | Jay Ajayi fully practices    Tue Jan 9, 02:40 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Jan. 9.

Footballguys view: Ajayi has averaged around 14 carries in each of the last three games he's played for the Eagles. His workload should be around that number again in the Divisional Round against the Falcons. In fact, if the team struggles to move the ball through the air they may get Ajayi a heavier dose of carries.

  Eagles | Nick Foles solid in previous playoff effort    Tue Jan 9, 03:35 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has started one postseason contest in his career leading up to the team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. In Jan. 2014, Foles faced the New Orleans Saints and despite coming up short in defeat, he enjoyed a quality outing, completing 23-of-33 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one rush for three yards.

Footballguys view: Foles isn't a bad starter, he just needs to be protected well and stay on script to make the most of his passing ability. It will be up to the Falcons to see if they can make Foles move in the pocket (or out of the pocket) and throw from platforms he's not comfortable with.

  Eagles | Jay Ajayi's knee an issue    Wed Jan 3, 08:40 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (knee) may miss practice time this week because of knee soreness.

Footballguys view: The Eagles have a bye this week and they have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs as the NFC's top seed. Ajayi has had knee problems dating back to his days in college at Boise State. Getting rest is just part of his deal.

  Eagles | Nick Foles in no danger of getting pulled    Tue Jan 2, 01:47 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will remain the starting quarterback during the playoffs. After briefly leaving the door open to benching Foles earlier in the week if he played poorly, head coach Doug Pederson told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, 'My guy is Nick Foles, end of story.'

Footballguys view: As the no1 seed in the NFC, the Eagles have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. They will face the lowest seeded team that survives Wild Card Weekend. Foles has struggled at times after taking over for an injured Carson Wentz, but the Eagles basically have no other option but to stick with him. Nate Sudfeld is the backup quarterback to Foles and his only pro experience came in Week 17 against the Cowboys last week.

  Eagles | Week 17 game recap for Philly    Sun Dec 31, 04:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 4-for-11 for 39 yards and one interception against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for 37 yards on nine carries. TE Zach Ertz caught two passes for 24 yards during the game, while WR Alshon Jeffery caught one pass for eight yards.

Footballguys view: Foles has been woeful since piloting touchdown drives with ease against the Giants two weeks ago. The Eagles have the #1 seed in the NFC, but they are vulnerable.

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount has a $300,000 bonus in his contract if he reaches 750 rushing yards this season, according to a source. He has 729 rushing yards entering Week 17's game against the Dallas Cowboys, so he needs 21 yards in order to earn the incentive.

  Eagles | Sidney Jones officially activated    Sat Dec 30, 02:04 PM

Philadelphia Eagles CB Sidney Jones (Achilles') was officially activated from the Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Dec. 30, and has been added to the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: It's a great comeback story for the rookie. Jones had first-round talent but fell to the second round of the 2017 NFL draft after he tore his Achilles' at his pro day. Don't look for the rookie to do much as he just tries to get back in the swing of things on a defense that is focused on making a deep postseason run.

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Eagles are expected to activate CB Sidney Jones (Achilles') from the Reserve/Injured list and he will play in Week 17's game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Jones had first-round talent but he fell to the second round of the 2017 NFL draft after he tore his Achilles' during his pro day. He's worked hard to get back to the football field, but the rookie is trying to come back from a major injury on a team that wants to make a deep postseason run. He should be limited upon his return.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood should receive a 'lion's share of carries' against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17, according to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News.

  Eagles | Sidney Jones could play in Week 17    Wed Dec 27, 01:28 AM

Philadelphia Eagles CB Sidney Jones (Achilles') has not been ruled out for the team's Week 17 game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Jones tore his Achilles' during his pro day earlier this year. The Washington corner was a second-round pick for the Eagles in the 2017 NFL draft. When healthy, Jones has the ability to be a premiere corner with his 'casino' style of play.

  Eagles | Philly noncommittal on Nick Foles for Week 17    Tue Dec 26, 12:59 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is not a lock to start or play a significant number of snaps in Week 17 against Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: Week 17 is going to be treated like a preseason game by multiple teams out there. The Eagles have visions of making a deep postseason run with Foles as the starter. They could get him a few series then give way to Nate Sudfeld. A sixth-round pick out of Indiana in 2016 (Washington), Sudfeld has never thrown a pass in a regular season game. He's a tall (6'6") pocket passer with a rocket arm.
