Top Plays From The Eagles' Fast Start

Posted Oct 16, 2014

The first six weeks of the Eagles' 2014 schedule have played out in a very favorable way for Eagles fans. The first four games at Lincoln Financial Filed have all had one common denominator – fans have left every game happy thanks to an Eagles victory. At home and on the road, the wins haven’t always come easy, but the Eagles are 5-1, including a spotless 4-0 home schedule.

This week, the Eagles get a chance to rest and recover as they enter their bye. So as the Eagles recharge their batteries for the final 10-game stretch, take a moment to look back on some of the top plays to this point ...

Getting The Ball Sproling

Entering the season, Eagles fans expected big numbers from the Eagles' offense, and rightfully so after last season’s gaudy numbers. But after one half of football, fans looked up to the scoreboard and saw a 17-0 score in favor of the Jacksonville Jaguars. As the second half began, the Eagles' offense was in clear need of a spark, and on a fourth-and-1 play, the Eagles handed the ball to Darren Sproles who scampered 49 yards to put the Eagles on the board for the first time in 2014 ...

Welcome Back, Mac

The Eagles managed to erase the 17-point deficit in the opener, knotting the score early in the fourth quarter. But to take their first lead of the season, Nick Foles completed a 68-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin. After a devastating injury in 2013 and months of rehab, Maclin hauled in the deep ball to put the Eagles on top for good ...

Parkey Exacts Revenge

The life of a kicker can be tough. One poor performance can cost a kicker, particularly a young player trying to break into the NFL, a chance to make it at the professional level. Though it was fairly evident all along that Cody Parkey wasn’t going to beat out Adam Vinatieri in Indianapolis, it was still a sweet moment for the Auburn product to take the field in the final seconds against his former squad in the Eagles' Week 2 matchup with the Colts. Thrust into the Monday Night Football showdown with the game on the line, Parkey made the most of the moment ...

The Incredible Polk Runs Angry

Much like the opener, the Eagles' Week 3 game against Washington didn’t get off to the best start. Washington got the ball first to start the game, and Kirk Cousins led the offense down the field and found Darrel Young in the end zone to put Washington up 7-0 right away. How would the Eagles offense answer back? As it turned out, the offense wouldn’t even get a chance. Chris Polk, dealing with hamstring issues for most of the early part of the season, took the kickoff 102 yards to the house, the first kickoff return touchdown by an Eagle at Lincoln Financial Field ...

J-Matt Strikes Twice

The Eagles fell down by 10 points to their divisional foe, and just when it looked like the Eagles may slip up at home, it was rookie Jordan Matthews who helped save the day - twice. Matthews caught a pair of 11-yard touchdown passes from Foles, and his second score displayed the combination of size and athleticism that made him so desirable to the Eagles' front office …

Block-toberfest

Eagles special teams have been dominant throughout the season. From blocked punts to Cody Parkey’s 90.9 field goal percentage and Donnie Jones’ punting magic, it’s been a banner start for Dave Fipp’s crew. Just a week after the Eagles blocked a punt and recovered it for a touchdown against San Francisco, they were at it again versus St. Louis. On the Rams' first possession, James Casey broke through the line and blocked the punt, and Chris Maragos was there to do the rest ...

Eagles Tight Ends Hit The Giants Where It Ertz

The Eagles' Week 6 meeting with New York had all the makings of an instant classic. From the national spotlight of Sunday Night Football to the unveiling of the black-on-black uniform combination, not to mention the New York Giants being the opposition, the atmosphere was unlike almost anything else that Lincoln Financial Field had seen in some time. But to make the experience truly unforgettable for fans, the Eagles knew they had to come away with a win, and thanks to touchdowns from Casey and Zach Ertz, that’s exactly what they accomplished, sending the team into the bye week with a 5-1 record ...
