Well here we are, we made it to the Championship Series. On the American League side, we get probably the most anticipated matchup to this point in the Yankees and Astros. All season long, they were on a crash course that led to meeting in the ALCS with a trip to the World Series on the line. Both have their strengths and their weaknesses and have gone on different paths this season while having obstacles along the way. Continue reading →
In what should be a very tight series, the Braves and Cardinals face off in the NLDS starting today at 5:02 PM ET. The Braves are slight favorites based on Fangraphs projections. Before diving into the key players, matchups, and what to watch for, let’s take a look at the schedule.
The Oakland Athletics have done it again; they find themselves back in the wild card game for the second straight year. Everyone counts them out every year, but they surprised us yet again as they set to matchup against another AL East team in the Tampa Bay Rays (lost to Yankees in last year’s wild card game). The Rays are also a team that finds different ways to win, and they were able to outlast a late surge by Cleveland to lock up a spot in this game. Neither team is one of the “elite” teams, but they still found a way to get a chance to meet up with the Houston Astros in the ALDS.
What a game! What a way to open up week four! In what was a back-and-forth shootout last night, the Eagles were the team to come out on top, 34-27, in a thriller. The Eagles ended up finishing the game down to just two cornerbacks, but with just seconds left, backup cornerback Craig James came up with a big play to tip the ball in the air. Nigel Bradham caught the tipped ball for the game-sealing interception.
The Eagles are coming off a tough, tough 24-27 loss by the hands of the Lions on Sunday, and have a quick turnaround as they face a tough and surprising 3-0 Packers team tonight at Lambeau. Kickoff is at 8:20 on Fox to open up Week 4 of the regular season. Not that any game this early in the season is a “must-win”, but after starting the season 1-2 following Super Bowl aspirations, this is as “must-win” as a Week 4 game gets. The Cowboys, while they have only faced the Giants, Redskins, and Dolphins (combined 1-8 record), have started off 3-0 and look to be the team to beat at the moment in the NFC East. If the Eagles are going to want to keep pace with Dallas, they are going to have to win this game. Continue reading →
The title of this article has a double meaning, as the Eagles not only dropped the game, but one the main causes of the loss was a total of seven dropped passes from Carson Wentz. Yes, I said seven. SEVEN. Now let’s get into all the culprits of the heartbreaking 27-24 defeat by the hands of the Lions, as the Eagles now fall to 1-2. Here are five takeaways from yesterday’s loss.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons are set to face off on Sunday Night Football tonight with kickoff set for 8:20pm on NBC. The Eagles are coming off a come-from-behind 32-27 victory against the Washington Redskins, while the Falcons are coming off a 28-12 defeat by the hands of the Minnesota Vikings last week. The Falcons didn’t put up any points until the fourth quarter, as they trailed 28-0 after three quarters. Three turnovers (two picks and a fumble) and a blocked punt all led to Minnesota scores, with the Vikings rushing for 172 yards. Continue reading →
