Nick Foles has second chance to be a Rocky-like Eagles hero

This was supposed to be Carson Wentz’s moment, Philadelphia’s fearless phenom carrying fervent, frenzied football fans and a franchise forever desperate to win its first Super Bowl on his strapping young shoulders on an exhilarating journey into the history books.

Nick Foles is the Eagles’ curse, or the one to break it

This was supposed to be Carson Wentz’s moment, Philadelphia’s fearless phenom carrying fervent, frenzied football fans and a franchise forever desperate to win its first Super Bowl on his strapping young shoulders on an exhilarating journey into the history books.

Post expert takes out crystal ball and predicts Super Bowl champ

Fake news: The Serby Crystal Ball was hacked before the season. Nope, no excuses here for picking the Giants to beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl (though Eli Apple took a bathroom break to assure me I would look good if I picked them, you should know that). Got

Nick Foles played enough like Carson Wentz to stymie Giants

Nick Foles did a pretty good Carson Wentz imitation Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Making his first start in 14 months, Foles threw four touchdowns to lead the Eagles to a 34-29 victory over the Giants. It was almost as if the Eagles did not miss their super second-year quarterback

Eagles fans absolutely took over MetLife Stadium

The Giants were hurt Sunday by crowd noise, which is quite remarkable, considering they played at home, at MetLife Stadium. “You don’t think having that [at home], but I guess when you’ve only won two games, there’s a lot of Eagles fans and they were loud,’’ Eli Manning said. It

Giants waste Eli Manning’s best in another crusher

No Carson Wentz, no problem. On Sunday at MetLife Stadium, the Giants couldn’t match Eagles backup Nick Foles and the NFC East leaders, losing 34-29. In front of a “home crowd” that generated more noise for the visitors, the Giants blew an early 20-7 advantage and a 23-21 halftime lead

Giants’ last matchup with Eagles changed their whole season

Ain’t that a kick? It sure was 84 days ago, when a rookie named Jake Elliott aimed and fired a dagger through the hearts of the Giants and their season. Sure, the Giants were already 0-2 when they met up with the Eagles in Philadelphia, so it is not

What Bill Parcells’ 1990 Giants can teach this Eagles team

Eagles confirm the worst: Carson Wentz tore his ACL

The Eagles fear the Carson Wentz worst

LOS ANGELES — Two sources familiar with the injury tell The Associated Press that doctors believe Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has torn his left anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs. Wentz needs an MRI to confirm the severity of the injury.

An NFC showdown, a QB debut and an RB feud: Five NFL things to watch

Another crazy week in the NFL, particularly at the quarterback position, where the Eli Manning has been benched by the Giants after starting 210 consecutive games, the 49ers finally take the bubble wrap off Jimmy Garoppolo, and Chiefs fans are calling for rookie Patrick Mahomes II to replace

NFL’s $89M plan to end anthem protests begins to work

The NFL could be one step closer to accomplishing its goal of making the players’ national anthem protests a thing of the past. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins will stop raising his fist for the “Star-Spangled Banner” beginning Sunday against the Seahawks, ending a ritual he has performed since September

Why I won’t accept this NFL “charade’: anthem protester

Eric Reid’s protest is growing. Not only will the 49ers safety continue to kneel for the national anthem to make a statement about racial oppression and injustice in America, but now he is forcefully opposing the NFL’s plan to take $89 million and donate it to social justice reform

The Eagles’ lone problem reveals how special they are

You know you’re having a good season when your only problem is at the kicker position. Such is the plight of the 9-1 Eagles, who lost their rookie kicker Jake Elliott to a concussion in their win over the Cowboys on Sunday. The Eagles replaced Elliott with linebacker Kamu

The 2015 NFL juggernaut has woken up again

Look who appears to be back, potentially in Super Bowl form. Three years ago, the Panthers went 15-1 and went to the Super Bowl. They lost to the Broncos, but the Panthers, with a strong defense and star quarterback Cam Newton, figured to be at or near the top

The Texans are trying to manage what Packers failed

In what has become a disturbing theme to this NFL season, the league lost another one of its star players for the season last week, when Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson tore the ACL in his right knee Thursday in a non-contact drill at practice. So, just as the Packers

The pretenders are being outed, and the Eagles aren’t one

As the Eagles try to recover from the loss of their team leader, perennial All-Pro Jason Peters, who is out for the season, their quarterback, Carson Wentz, continues to become one of the stars of the league. Wentz’s 17 TD passes through the first seven games represent the most in Philadelphia

The Giants’ biggest QB problem isn’t on their team

The Giants’ biggest quarterback problem isn’t that Eli Manning is 36 and seemingly in decline. It’s not that they will soon be in a position to have to figure out what they’ve got with rookie Davis Webb, or that they may have to decide to select a new arm near

Super Bowl rematch, a QB fighting for job: 6 NFL things to watch

Volatility was the name of Week 6 in the NFL, with upsets, surprise results and crushing injuries — lowlighted by the Packers’ loss of quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a broken collarbone. What mayhem is in store this week? Here’s a look at the Week 7 NFL High Five: Memories of their

The NFL hierarchy is changing, and the Eagles are coming

The Eagles are soaring while other NFC East contenders drop like flies

It’s been a dark stretch of time for the NFC East. Everywhere except in Philadelphia, of course. First, the Giants have staggered through the first five weeks without a win. Then, this week the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the injunction that had allowed star Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott

Panthers fan arrested for brutally sucker-punching older fan

A Panthers fan who turned violent during Carolina’s 28-23 loss to the Eagles was caught on camera Thursday night, and on Friday by the authorities.
