National Football Conference, Eastern Division
The 2014 NFL Season is finally here, well technically. The NFL released the schedule for the upcoming season and here at the Football Radio Show we’re licking our chops impatiently waiting for September. Casey and Dave offer up a quick taste of the NFL deliciousness on this episode of The Football Radio Show.
Saturday Night is alright for fighting and in the City of Brotherly Love, there are bound to be some fisticuffs inside the Link and out. It is Nick Foles and the 10-6 NFC East Champion Philadelphia Eagles hosting Drew Brees and the 11-5 New Orleans Saints. Nick Foles has completed a major Philly turn around while putting together an insane year driving Chip Kelly’s high powered offense straight into the Playoffs. Drew Brees led his Saints back into the mix as well after missing the Playoffs altogether last year. If you love tight defense, this is not the game for you. So will the Eagles continue to soar or will the Saints march out of Philadelphia with a win? Casey and Dave have a fever and it’s more Playoff football on this episode of The Football Radio Show.
Heading into Week 17 of the 2013 NFL Season, the only thing settled in the NFC playoff picture is that the Seahawks, Panthers, and 49ers will all be participants. Other than that, nothing is set and we know for certain that until the last game of the regular season is over, we won’t have our the complete playoff lineup decided. Nick Foles and the 9-6 Philadelphia Eagles head down south to take on what will most likely be a Romo-less 8-7 Dallas Cowboys in an NFC East Championship game. The winner moves on and the loser goes home. The same scenario is set up for the NFC North as well. Fortunately for the Packers they are getting their qb back. Aaron Rodgers will lead his 7-7-1 Green Bay Packers into Chicago to take on Jay Cutler and the 8-7 Bears. The winner takes the division and a playoff spot, and the loser is headed into the offseason. Casey and Dave also preview Bucs at Saints, Panthers at Falcons, Rams at Seahawks, 49ers at Cardinals, Lions at Vikings,and Skins at Giants on this episode of The Football Radio Show.
The Week 16 edition of Sunday Night Football is dripping with NFC Playoff implications. Nick Foles and the 8-6 NFC East leading Philadelphia Eagles host Jay Cutler and the 8-6 NFC North leading Chicago Bears. The Bears have been awful against the run, and the Eagles are the best rush team in the NFL. On the flip side, the Bears have a devastatingly good receiving corp and the Eagles are terrible against the pass. Something has got to give on Sunday Night Football. Both teams control their own destiny, but both teams have huge divisional games next week, and will most likely have to win their division just to get into the playoffs. So who wins on Sunday Night? Casey and Dave shine the light on this episode of The Football Radio Show.
