1. What A Welcome In Texas!

Eagles fans did not disappoint when the team arrived at its hotel in Texas on Wednesday afternoon. Needless to say, they are ready for Bird Day. Are you?

The Philadelphia Eagles ground crew transformed the Prendergasts' front lawn into a football field fit for Eagles Nation ...

2. This Turkey Bowl Is Now A Bird Bowl!

No Thanksgiving is complete without food, family and of course, football. The Prendergasts of Cinnaminson, N.J., take this holiday motto to the extreme, with their annual youth football scrimmage.

While the parents prepare a Thanksgiving tailgate and feast for the Prendergasts' 30 guests, the four sons and their youth football teammates and friends get in some extra practice out on the front lawn, turning their friendly scrimmage into a competitive Turkey Bowl with bragging rights up for grabs.

Taking note of the collision of household favorites (Thanksgiving, football and the Eagles) for this year's holiday, Momma Prendergast, Kira, nominated the family for the first-ever Philadelphia Eagles #BirdDay Bowl Sweepstakes ... and won. The team's official grounds crew headed to the Garden State and spent Tuesday morning turning the Prendergasts' front lawn into a football field fit for Eagles Nation.

"My younger son asked Santa for an Eagles football field last year, so this is really a dream come true for him and all four of my boys," Kira said.

What a way to kick off the holiday season.

3. Win Tickets To Cowboys-Eagles

Enter here for a chance to win 11 tickets to the Eagles vs. Dallas game at Lincoln Financial Field on December 14. Each ticket has a $30 loaded value that can be used at stadium concessions and select Pro Shops at Lincoln Financial Field.

4. Help Parkey Land Rookie Honor

Kicker Cody Parkey accounted for five field goals and 19 total points in the 43-24 win over Tennessee on Sunday. In the process, Parkey connected on his 17th straight field goal attempt to tie the second-longest streak in team history. He also became the first kicker in Eagles history to have four field goals of 50 yards or more in a single season.

Parkey's efforts earned him a nomination for the NFL's Rookie of the Week Award, but he needs your vote to win. Yes, the Giants' Odell Beckham, Jr. was also nominated, but at least the Eagles won their game.

5. McCoy Needs An Assist For FedEx Honor

Running back LeSean McCoy's 130-yard performance, the second-highest of the season for the All-Pro, garnered a nomination for the NFL FedEx Ground Player of the Week award. In order to win, though, he needs your vote.
