The rest difference is one of them. The Eagles last played on Thursday Youth Corey Clement Jersey , October 11 while the Panthers played on Sunday, October 14. Home field advantage is also significant with the Eagles winning 17 out of their last 20 meaningful games at Lincoln Financial Field. And then there’s another factor that certainly wasn’t working in the Eagles’ favor during last year’s game against the Panthers: officiating. In 2017, Pete Morelli’s crew called a HISTORICALLY lop-sided game against Philadelphia. Despite this, the Eagles found a way to beat the Panthers (and the refs) anyway.This week, the Eagles won’t have to deal with a crew that’s called way more penalties against them than their opponents. Just the opposite, actually.Clete Blakeman is the referee for this week’s Eagles versus Panthers game and Philadelphia has played very well in the games he’s officiated. Dating back to 2009, the Eagles are 9-1 in such contests. Here’s a game-by-game breakdown:In summation, the Eagles have been penalized 56 times for 377 yards. Their opponents Cheap Dallas Goedert Jersey , meanwhile, have been flagged 71 times for 588 yards.The Eagles have outscored their opponents by a total 327 to 193 in these games. That’s a 13.4 point average margin of victory. But wait, the numbers are even more favorable when you isolate the Eagles’ four home games officiated by Blakeman. The Eagles have been called for 15 penalties for 127 yards while their opponents have been flagged 32 penalties for 287 yards. More than twice as much.In those four games, the Eagles have outscored their opponents by a total of 129 to 48. Philly’s average margin of victory is a whopping 20.25 average. After last year’s Morelli debacle, it’s hard to feel bad for the Panthers if Blakeman’s crew continues to be favorable towards the Eagles. Philadelphia certainly won’t mind an extra boost as they try to advance to 4-3 on the season. ...RELATED READINGS: Eagles open as home favorites in Week 7 game vs. Panthers | Eagles’ next opponent blows potential game-winning drive | Advanced scouting of the Carolina Panthers’ offense.
Todd Herremans to officially retire with Eagles Former NFL offensive lineman Todd Herremans is officially retiring with the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday, according to an announcement from the team. Herremans will serve as an honorary captain for the coin toss prior to the Eagles’ Week 5 home game against the Minnesota Vikings.Herremans, who turns 36 this month (same age as Jason Peters), originally entered the league as a fourth-round draft pick out of Saginaw Valley State. He played for the Eagles from 2005 through 2014 Cheap Alshon Jeffery Jersey , making 124 starts in 127 games played. After being released by Philadelphia, Herremans spent a portion of the 2015 season with the Colts before being cut. He then had a tryout with the Ravens during the 2016 offseason but Baltimore didn’t end up signing him.Herremans never made the Pro Bowl but he was always a good player for the Eagles. He was a very valuable contributor due to his ability to play at both tackle and guard. I’ve crossed paths with Todd on a few occasions in my time here at Bleeding Green Nation. He was the first Eagles player I ever interviewed. He was also the coach of the media flag football charity team I played on last year. Always been a cool/nice guy in my experiences.Herremans has also been active in the community, as noted in the Eagles’ press release.Congrats to Herrdawg, the only offensive lineman in Eagles franchise history to register two touchdown receptions, on calling it a career.
