You know the story all too well, unfortunately.
The Eagles haven’t won a game at Lincoln Financial Field since September 30, 2012, a span of 10 losses. The players have been reminded of that all week by reporters in the locker room.
“Oh yeah, we know,” said tight end Brent Celek. “We’re trying. We know the fans deserve it. They’re great fans. They support us all the time and I know they’re frustrated. All we can do is keep working hard and go out and beat the Redskins.”
Said wide receiver Jason Avant: “We put pressure on ourselves in every game, so it’s no different when we are playing at home or away. Washington has a great team and the Redskins are a division rival. We know what’s at stake on Sunday. It’s a big game, just like every other game.”
