With just two days to adjust and get ready to take on Jacksonville Cheap Carson Wentz Jersey , head coach Doug Pederson spoke to the media on Friday before practice. He talked about the travel and being greeted by Eagles fans at the airport, as well as gave some injury and personnel updates.Here’s what Pederson had to say:On the travelPederson opened by saying the flight was great and he got four to five hours of sleep. He called having to get their bodies adjusted to the time difference and sleep “tough” but said they prepare for it — noting they have an team of people go and scout out the hotels and area so that they are as prepared as they can be.He said it’s a little bit of an adjustment but they’ll make it through. On what the team would do schedule-wise on Saturday, Pederson said they want to keep it as normal as possible, and have a few hours of a walk-through practice and keep them going. But after that, he noted, it’s up to the guys if they want to relax, or go out and see the sites, that they’ll have the opportunity while they’re in London to do that.Pederson was asked if the team was coming together more since last week’s loss, and the head coach pointed out that the team trip to London is a good way for them to stay connected. He also said that they’ve been doing and saying everything right this week, and hopefully that will show up on Sunday.He went on to talk about how being all together on further trips from home build that needed camaraderie. He noted that the players aren’t all spread out like they are in Philly, and that the guys can hang out and explore London together if they choose to go out. Pederson said he thinks it’s important that they bond that way.Later on, Pederson lauded his players for how they’ve embraced this trip and how they’ve handled the travel and even the first morning in London. Pederson was asked if Jacksonville frequently making the trip to London is an advantage for them, and agreed that it could be. He went on to say that they are familiar with the city and the travel, but at the same time, there are coaches and players on the Eagles who have made the trip as well — even if the team hadn’t played there.He also talked more about the advance team going and scouting out everything beforehand, which included the ins and outs of Wembley Stadium and the conditions of the field. Pederson said that he and the guys are excited to play in a big stadium, that feels like a playoff atmosphere.On that note, the head coach was asked about Eagles fans making the trip Cheap Jay Ajayi Jersey , and Pederson (with a big smile on his face) talked about walking through the airport and there being Eagles fans chanting. He said it’s exciting that they are in London supporting the team and the guys, but he’s also excited for local NFL fans to attend the game.On injuries and personnelPederson said the team will know about Haloti Ngata after practice on Friday and that he’s a game-time decision, but he’s been trending well.Corey Graham also made the trip, and the head coach called him day-to-day, but said there is a chance he plays on Sunday and that he’s getting close.On Darren Sproles, Pederson noted that he’s another day-to-day case, and that they are continuing to work him out but wouldn’t get into the details of the injury. He did confirm that it’s a hamstring issue, but with that kind of injury, they don’t want him to return too soon. Pederson said, “I believe so,” when asked if he felt confident that Sproles would play this year.He was asked for an update on Timmy Jernigan, and Pederson said that Jernigan is another guy they hope to get back in the next couple of weeks. He said that Timmy has been doing well, and they’ll have to see where he’s at, but he’s another one trending in the right direction.With Derek Barnett on IR, the team called up practice squad cornerback Chandon Sullivan, and Pederson said that the kid has done everything right and that this is going to be a great opportunity for him.

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse Cheap Cameron Johnston Jersey , a survey of fans across the NFL powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Eagles fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.Let’s take stock of the NFC East heading into NFL Week 10 based on SB Nation’s latest FanPulse numbers.Week 10 NFC East FanPulse OverviewTeamWeek 9 ConfidenceWeek 10 ConfidenceChangeRecordTeamWeek 9 ConfidenceWeek 10 ConfidenceChangeRecordWASHINGTONWashington saw a huge drop in fan confidence following their 38-14 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
It wasn’t just the loss that has Washington fans feeling bad, of course. It’s also the fact they lost both of their starting guards and their top wide receiver for the rest of the season.Despite this confidence loss, Hogs Haven readers are still projecting Washington to win on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by an average of three points. Bucs fans, meanwhile, are expecting their team to lose by an average of one point. If Washington loses on Sunday, they’ll be 5-4. Philadelphia will then have a chance to move into first place in the NFC East with a win over Dallas. The Eagles would own the tie-breaker over Washington due to record in common games (4-2 over 3-3). PHILADELPHIA EAGLESThe reigning Super Bowl champions saw a slight increase in fan confidence coming out of the bye week. It’s hard not to feel more optimistic about the Eagles after seeing both Washington and Dallas falter. Not to mention that Philadelphia’s offense could be improved with the addition of Golden Tate.The Eagles MUST capitalize on a golden opportunity to advance to 5-4 and effectively end the Cowboys’ season in the process on Sunday Night Football. It’s an absolutely critical game to win.Eagles fans are feeling VERY confident going into this specific matchup. FanPulse results show that Eagles fans expect their favorite team to win by an average of 10 points. Division games can be closer than expected, yes, but I don’t think you can take a blowout off the table. Eagles fans expected a close game against the Giants earlier this season and Philly blew the doors off New York.DALLAS COWBOYSThe Cowboys’ fan confidence only dropped by four percent heading into Week 10. It’s worth noting that FanPulse voting started before the Cowboys’ loss to the Titans on Monday night, however, so their actual confidence number is probably even lower than indicated.Cowboys fans are expecting Dallas to lose by an average of three points in Philadelphia. Some Cowboys fans even want to see Dallas lose so that there’s a better chance Jerry Jones cleans house.NEW YORK GIANTSGiants fans are feeling much better after the bye! Their confidence rating went up by a whopping one percent.Giants fans are only expecting New York to lose by an average of two points to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. 49ers fans, meanwhile, are expecting a win by an average of six points.Call me crazy but I think the Giants might actually win this game. I don’t think they’re going winless over the rest of the season. And who knows, maybe undrafted rookie free agent Nick Mullens looks terrible in his second start? Eagles fans should want to see the Giants win so that they screw up their positioning in the 2019 NFL Draft. Make it harder for them to get their top quarterback choice. ...Once again, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
