Eagles Beat Titans: 10 Things We Learned - BGN
Josh Huff had been having a poor rookie season. He dropped easy passes. He fumbled a ball in the red zone. He made inflammatory post-game comments instead of accepting responsibility. Those mistakes were forgiven on Sunday. Huff took the game's opening kickoff and returned it 107 yards to the house for a score. Unlike Huff's touchdown return against the Chicago Bears in the preseason, this one wasn't just gifted to him due to extremely poor coverage. On this return, Huff showed his great combination of balance, speed, elusiveness, and strength. It looked like Huff was going to be tackled twice on the return but he threw some nasty stiff arms to keep the play alive. Great job by the rookie. A much-needed redemption opportunity for him.

Good Win For Eagles - Iggles Blitz
Mark Sanchez threw 2 INTs. One of them was a mix-up between him and Riley Cooper. The other was a terrible throw over the middle. He did have one beautiful TD pass, a throw on the move to James Casey. Sanchez mostly played well, but still has to clean up his game as the Eagles get ready to play some tough teams in the coming weeks.

Eagles-Titans Notes: McCoy Breaks Loose - Birds 24/7
Mark Sanchez finished 30-of-43 for 307 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions Sunday. The good news is that he improved to 2-1 as a starter. The bad news is that he has thrown six interceptions and turned the ball over eight times total in less than four games. His first interception came late in the first quarter as a result of miscommunication between the QB and wide receiver Riley Cooper, who took the blame in the locker room afterwards.

10 observations from Eagles-Titans - CSN Philly
spent all week telling anybody who’d listen that LeSean McCoy was fine, and the running game’s issues had nothing to do with him losing a step. He sure looked like the Shady of old Sunday, didn’t he? Twenty-one carries for 130 yards and a touchdown. Over the last seven weeks, McCoy is averaging 95 yards and 4.5 yards per carry. That’s legit production. The Shady of old? You got him.

Ready or not, the Cowboys are next - Daily News
Question: Can the Eagles beat a good team if the quarterback insists upon turning the ball over twice a game? Answer: It would seem that we all are about to find out.

Eagles Notebook: Smith 'next man up' - Daily News
THE WORKING definition of "from bad to worse" manifested itself with about 11 minutes left in the second quarter yesterday. Emmanuel Acho was several steps slower than Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker on a 68-yard pass play, and Acho then left the game with a groin injury. This left Casey Matthews and first-round rookie Marcus Smith as the team's only healthy potential middle linebackers, and Smith has worked inside in games only on a handful of plays here and there, since being moved in response to an earlier medical emergency, in Week 3.

Appetizer: 8-3 And Bring On Dallas! - PE.com
What’s important to understand if you haven’t already gotten the drift about the 2014 Eagles, this is an equal-opportunity team. They’ll beat you, and there is no prescription for how it will happen. On a gorgeous Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles took apart Tennessee, 43-24, doing damage in a variety of ways …

NFL scores, news and highlights: What happened Sunday in Week 12 - SB Nation
With Dallas' defeat of the reeling Giants (now losers of six in a row), the Cowboys keep pace with the Eagles and Packers for second-best record in the NFC behind only Arizona. The win sets up a great race to the finish, especially in the NFC East. The Cowboys are now set to face off against their division-rival Eagles twice in the next three weeks and the outcomes of those games will obviously have a huge impact on seeding in the NFC playoffs.
