Philadelphia (AP) — Jason Peters is back in Philadelphia ready to play in front of a bunch of crying idiots.
Of course, his endearing words to his fans.
A nine-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro, Peters had a Hall of Fame left tackle career for the Eagles, including being named to the NFL’s Team of the Decade in the 2010s.
However, he suffered a torn ACL during the 2017 season, missing out on the biggest moment in franchise history by missing the Super Bowl. Peters still won a Super Bowl ring, but his performance never fully recovered to elite levels. He signed with the Cowboys this season. — you know, the Eagles’ most hated rival.
Philadelphia went 5-0 for the third time in franchise history. The Eagles started 7-0 in 2004, and in 1981 he started 6-0, losing to New England in the Super Bowl after finishing the regular season 13-3. but dropped his game in the first playoff.
Link goes wild and Peters is ready.
“I know Philadelphia fans are idiots when it comes to friendships and the Cowboys. Any team, really,” Peters said. “They start throwing things at the team. Like, when we played against the Vikings one year, they were throwing things. I mean, they’re nasty.”
Peters made 148 starts, seven Pro Bowls and earned both All-Pro selections with the Eagles after acquiring him in a franchise shift trade with Buffalo in 2009.
Peters was saving a thorn for the Cowboys, a franchise he once called “Arrogant.” Of course, his tone changed when work was needed, and the 40-year-old, who signed with Buffalo after being undrafted, has served as the leader of the offensive line. , has been messed up lately.
Peters still has some love for Philadelphia, the organization, and yes, the fans for whom he appears as an enemy.
“I put a lot of bricks in there,” said Peters. “Philly, that’s my town. Just go back. It’s great to beat them.”
Dak Prescott hesitates to start in Dallas, but cooper rush Remains Cowboys QB on Sunday night.
Prescott broke his throwing thumb in the season-opening loss to Tampa Bay. Rush took over and achieved his four-game winning streak, including last year’s Super Bowl in Cincinnati with his team and defending his champion Los Angeles Rams.
It would be the first start against the Eagles for Rush, who earned the first five starts of his career, including a victory over Minnesota last season.
Rush is steady, but hardly lights up the scoreboard. He threw for just 102 yards in the 22-10 win over the Rams. Dallas has his 182.2 yards passing per game, which puts him 27th in the NFL and is just out of net his lowest passing total in a win since 2000.
“He puts them in a position to go out there and run and help them win,” Eagles coach Nick Siriani said. They have more tape than the Rams or the Giants, but they do a good job of positioning them to make them successful.”
Eagles QB Jaylen Hurts is coming to the end of his first trip to chill the MVP hype. However, the Hearts still have an eight-game winning streak in the regular season, the longest active winning streak in the NFL. Hurts has passed for 1,359 yards and 4 TDs this season for 266 yards and he has 6 TDs. He turned the ball over twice as he amassed his 97.4 QB rating.
Hearts has also tried to stay clear of recent debates over roughing the passer penalties.
NFL defensive players are frustrated About being flagged, questioning what constitutes a legal blow and wondering how far umpires will go to protect quarterbacks.
“I think it’s balanced,” Hartz said. “Of course I want to be protected there. But those are things I really have no control over.”
The Cowboys are tied for the fewest offensive touchdowns allowed (5), but are also tied for second-lowest scoring scrimmage touchdowns. This is his one of the best units in the NFL last season.
Rush kept the Dallas offense out of trouble by avoiding turnovers. He is the only qualifying QB in the league (a penalty against Washington nullified two nominations) without a fumble loss or an interception.
However, the offense only scored 13 points in the 22-10 win over the Rams. And one of his two drives that led to field goals only covered 35 yards.
How long can the offense rely on the defense with the third most points allowed?
“I think we’ll have to start scoring more points eventually,” running back Ezekiel Elliott said. increase.”
