Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni stresses the importance of dawg mentality and moving on from adversity. The team will certainly be tested this week coming off their first loss of the season to the Jets, and preparing to face one of the toughest teams on their schedule.
The Dolphins have been dynamic this season, offensively explosive, and the Eagles will be without safety Reed Blankenship and CB Bradley Roby. Fortunately, CB Darius Slay will be back, and DT Jalen Carter will be available up front. Still, DC Sean Desai acknowledged that the Eagles will have to match the Dolphins’ speed with physicality on Sunday night.
The Eagles added some speed on offense this week, signing WR Julio Jones to join what Sirianni called a banged up receiver room. DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert were both limited in practice this week, but were not listed on the final injury report. Regardless, the team elevated Jones from the practice squad for Sunday’s game, so it’ll be interesting to see how he’s used — at the very least he adds some dependable depth.
There’s still the matter of fixing the red zone offense and not turning the ball over, but hopefully those are things the Eagles worked on. If nothing else, Philly should be absolutely electric as the city and team celebrate the return of the Kelly Green jerseys. It’ll take more than vibes for the Eagles to beat the Dolphins, but they can certainly help.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
