Why the Eagles will beat the Denver Broncos - BLG, BGN
Entertain me for a moment. Just think about how good it would feel to get a win over Peyton Manning in Denver. Remember how beating him in 2010 felt? It felt so great for Eagles fans. Beating him in Denver could only be even better.

Video Eagles ready to face Peyton Manning, Broncos - JimmyK,'s Jimmy Kempski reports from the NovaCare Complex where the Eagles are preparing to face Peyton Manning and the red-hot Denver Broncos.

Chippah - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
We have a long way to go before we’ll know exactly what to make of Chip Kelly as an NFL coach, but we can already see some positive signs. The offense is moving the ball really well. Shady McCoy and DeSean Jackson are having great years. The offense had back-t0-back 30 point games to open the season. The last time the offense scored that much in consecutive games was the beginning of the 2011 season. The Eagles only had one 30-point game in all of 2012. And it took a PR score for that to happen.

New Wrinkles For The Offense? - Danta Klaus,
With all the talk about Peyton Manning’s sublime performance to this point in the season, Michael Vick is flying under the radar a bit going into Sunday afternoon’s game. Though he respects and admires Manning, Vick has gotten off to a pretty good start and thrust himself back into the conversation as one of the NFL’s better quarterbacks.

‘Old Bull’ Herremans Opens Up About Play, Injury - Tim McManus, Birds 24/7
The sentiment that it has been all bad for Herremans in 2013, though, doesn’t hold water. Turns out, he was actually the top-graded lineman by the coaches against Washington in Week 1. Overall, he has been very strong in the running game. Says he is the best he’s ever been in that area. Jason Kelce agrees.

Eagles on pace to break NFL’s all-time rushing mark - Andrew Kulp, The700Level
Fast forward back to 2013, and now the numbers back it up as well. Through three games, McCoy is the NFL’s leader in rushing (395) and all-purpose yards (514)—and he’s got about 100 yards on second place. The only back with a better average per carry is Ben Tate, a change-of-pace back for the Texans.

DeSean ready to renew rivalry with DRC - John Gonzalez, CSN Philly
They’re pals. They hung out when they both played here. They stay in touch now. On Sunday, DeSean Jackson and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will have a reunion of sorts. When the Eagles face the Broncos, Jackson expects to see his former teammate staring at him from across the line of scrimmage.

Creative Solutions - EaglesBlog
Shutting down Peyton Manning is darn near impossible. So a reader over at Iggles Blitz decided to come up with some “creative” ideas. Hilarious stuff from ATG.
