While watching the pre-game shows this morning, I was surprised to hear the Eagles mentioned during a report previewing today's Ravens-Giants game.
ESPN's Rachel Nichols was discussing how the Ravens' defense and Ray Lewis will match up with the Giants' top-ranked rushing attack.
According to the report, when Lewis was watching film, he had to keep switching games to find a defense that played well against the Giants. Nichols said Lewis "called out the Eagles specifically" and pointed out that they were leaving "big, gaping holes" that allowed Jacobs to eat up big chunks of yardage.
Anyone who watched the game knows Lewis is only speaking the truth. Jacobs ran for 126 yards, and the Eagles' defense gave up 219 yards on the ground.
The Eagles just happen to face the Ravens a week from today in Baltimore.
