Eagles Start Fast, Beat Up Titans in 43-24 Win

The Eagles got off to the fastest of starts Sunday with a big kick return from Josh Huff, and the rest of the day belonged to LeSean McCoy in a big win over the Titans.

Huff started the day with a 107 kickoff return for the score, and McCoy ran for 130 yards as the Eagles improved to 8-3 with a 43-24 win.

It was a productive day for backup QB Mark Sanchez, as the former Jets QB threw for 307 yards and one touchdown in his third start for the injured Nick Foles.

Titans rookie QB Zach Mettenberger had 345 yards passing and two TDs and Delanie Walker had 155 yards receiving for the Titans, who drop to 2-9 with the loss.

Huff got the Eagles to a quick start, going up the right side, breaking a tackle inside the 30, cutting to the right sideline and stiff-armed a defender at the Titans 20 on his way to the end zone for his first career TD.

After the first of four straight three-and-outs to start the game by the Titans, the Eagles went up 14-0 on a 4-yard TD run by Darren Sproles.

McCoy had a 2-yard TD run in the second quarter. Sanchez fired a 14-yard TD pass to James Casey in the third quarter.

It was a big win as the Eagles will now get set for a huge Turkey Day showdown with the Cowboys in Dallas on Thursday.

Show Off Your Team Spirit With A Little Style

NFL Men's Lifestyle Collection

The NFL Men’s Apparel team brought Eagles Gab out to last night’s Eagles/Panthers Monday Night Football game as their guest. They hooked us up with on-field passes before the game, sweet seats for the game itself, and of course, it wouldn’t be complete without some delicious cheesesteaks from Tony Luke’s.

We got to witness the Eagles absolutely CRUSH the Panthers, and that made the night all the sweeter! Now you might be asking yourself, why did the NFL roll out the red carpet for us? Simple, to introduce us to their NFL Men’s Lifestyle Apparel line.

Until recently, if you wanted to show your team spirit, you’d break out your team jersey on game day. That’s all fine and good, but what if you want to show your team allegiance during the rest of the week?

That’s a question that the NFL has been pondering themselves, and they finally come up with an answer with the 2014 NFL Men’s lifestyle apparel collection, perfect for fashion-conscious guys who want to express their love for their favorite team with a little bit of style.

According to stylist Rachel Johnson:

“The goal is to show gentlemen how to incorporate NFL apparel into their everyday lifestyle. We wanted to take the stigma and traditional ideas of what NFL apparel should be, or how you should look on Sunday, and elevate it. So we paired it with items you wouldn’t expect. In pairing with the apparel with a trouser, or with a trenchcoat, you’re opening up new ways that these key pieces of NFL apparel can be worn—and you’re opening up where you can wear these items to.”

We had a chance to check out some of these items firsthand were really impressed with them. I picked up a sharp looking Philadelphia Eagles ’47 Brand Midnight Green Bruiser Long Sleeve T-Shirt, and it’s something that I can wear any day of the week!

Here are a few photos from the lookbook:

If you’re ready to up your style game, check out the NFL Shop’s NFL Lifestyle Collection, and no longer will your significant other nag you for always wearing your team’s apparel, because you’ll look good doing so.
