Hope you updated your plans, because the Eagles’ Week 12 matchup at Lincoln Financial Field against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday is kicking off a lot earlier than originally scheduled.
Thanks to a disappointing Eagles team and what would have been a stacked 4 p.m. schedule, the NFL flexed out the Birds from their third Sunday Night Football game of the season and into the 1 p.m. time slot on Fox29. (On the bright side, Eagles fans won’t have to run to Twitter to complain about Cris Collinsworth).
Replacing Eagles-Seahawks is a big NFC match-up between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium, which former Deadspin writer Drew Magary appropriately mocked as “The Jeanhole.”
None of that takes away from the importance of Sunday’s game for a reeling Eagles team that lost last week to the Patriots and is struggling to remain in the hunt for an NFC East title with just six games remaining.
Quarterback Carson Wentz is coming off his poorest performance of the season, but he’s had little help from his nearly nonexistent wide receivers — including the oft-maligned Nelson Agholor, of whom Eagles beat writer Jeff McLane wrote: He “hasn’t been good at pretty much anything this season.”
In the booth for Fox will be play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt and analyst Charles Davis, the voice of Madden, who will be calling his third Eagles game of the season. He also worked two Eagles games last season, including the Birds’ heartbreaking loss to the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs. So Davis has seen his fair share of Carson Wentz, and thinks the quarterback’s struggles are at least partly to blame on the shadow cast by his predecessor — Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.
“He’s going to carry around the fact that he wasn’t the starting quarterback in that Super Bowl run until he makes his own Super Bowl run,’’ Davis told Eagles beat writer Paul Domowitch. “To me, that’s part of the pressing. He wants to prove that he’s that guy. It’s always going to linger there. Because you have all of these people saying, ‘Oh, yeah, he’s great. But Foles won the Super Bowl.’ I don’t care who you are. Being human, that’s going to affect you.”
