Eagles Playoff Debut Has their Fans full of Excitement
The Philadelphia Eagles start their 2023 Playoff Run when they host the New York Giants on Saturday Night at Lincoln Financial Field. With kick off is at 8:15pm and the Philly fans will definitely be lathered up after a full day of tailgating and anticipation. There is nothing like playoff football, especially against a familiar foe and a division rival that plays 90 miles to the north. In recent years, the Eagles have owned the Giantss in games played in Philadelphia and they’ve already beaten the G-men twice this season. The Eagles have won their last nine home games and are 15-3 in their last 18 matchups versus the Giants. But tomorrow night you can throw all that out the window, this will be a tough game for the home team but I can’t wait and I will be attending the game! I’ve been a season ticket holder since 1991 and have attended their divisional games in 2003, 2004, and 2017, and I can promise you there is nothing like it.
Don’t look now but the 76ers are playing good basketball on their west coast trip, having won 17 of their last 21 games along with four in a row on their current road trip and go for the clean sweep on Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings. West coast road trips are usually not a place to start a winning streak but that's what they’ve done so far thanks in large part to the big performances by perennial MVP Candidate Joel Embiid
The Flyers lost to a mediocre Blackhawks team Thursday night but they are 8-3 in their last 11 games and head to Detroit to face the underachieving Red Wings on Saturday Night and we will talk about all our Philly Sports teams all this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim!
