The NFL is a tough place and it doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past. Andy Reid of the Philadelphia Eagles is in trouble without some type of miracle. The struggling Eagles managed to look even worse than the struggling New Orleans Saints on Monday night, falling 28-13. If there’s anything glaringly obvious from this game it’s that the Eagles have no offensive line. It all stems from an inability to protect Michael Vick. Despite the fact that Philadelphia managed to accumulate over 200 yards rushing, the mistakes caused by pass pressure were more than enough to nullify any good things that came from the ground game. A 98-yard interception return by the Saints made that painfully clear.
NFL tickets for games in the NFC East are always top sellers but ticket holders this week saw the NFC East bomb completely. The Eagles got blasted by New Orleans, the Dallas Cowboys fell to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons, Washington got robbed by Carolina, and the New York Giants got hammered by Pittsburgh. Not an impressive showing by the NFC East at all.
Our suggestion for NFL ticket of the upcoming week. Upset city in New Orleans. I know, I know. The Saints defense sucks. But past experience tells us that a Falcons – Saints matchup is as unpredictable as an earthquake. There is no mre bitter rivalry in the NFL that that of Atlanta and New Orleans. The Saints will be trying to destroy an undefeated streak by the Falcons and with just a turn or two their way, it could happen.
