Good News, Everyone! The Eagles Will Still Play Dallas in Primetime

Good News, Everyone! The Eagles Will Still Play Dallas in Primetime

Believe it or not, your 3-7 Philadelphia Eagles will be
featured in primetime in three of the next four weeks. Unlike the suckers at
ESPN and the NFL Network however, NBC could get out of showing an awful game to
a national-television audience.

Unfortunately, they opted not to.

We’re at that time of the year where NBC’s Sunday Night
Football has flex scheduling, which gives the network the option to replace a
game between two bad teams with a game people might actually enjoy.
Philly-Dallas on December 2 would appear to be the epitome of that scenario,
but the network made the decision to keep the matchup anyway, likely thinking the
two fan bases will tune in no matter what.

That’s probably true to an extent, but couldn’t you do us a
solid, NBC? It’s bad enough the Eagles are the laughingstock of the league, do
we really need any additional attention drawn to it?

The Cowboys (5-5) are no prize, either.

As if that weren’t bad enough, the Eagles meet the woeful Panthers
on Monday Night Football this week, followed by the SNF game, then a week and a
half later is Thursday Night Football with the Bengals. Carolina and Cincinnati
are home games, so you can imagine what those crowds will be like for TV – not that
anybody watches the Thursday game.

And we thought the schedule makers were being unkind when
the Birds played four opponents coming off of their bye week…

On another note, with Philly playing four games over an
18-day span – they have a trip to Tampa Bay lined up somewhere in the middle of
all that – I wouldn’t expect any news on the head coaching front until that’s
over with at least. It’s going to be hectic enough as it is without making interim
changes, not to mention the media circus that would inevitably follow.

Today's lineup: Jorge Alfaro returns as Phillies go for sweep of Dodgers


Today's lineup: Jorge Alfaro returns as Phillies go for sweep of Dodgers

After getting hit by a pitch on the hand on Tuesday night, catcher Jorge Alfaro is back in the lineup for the Phillies, who are aiming for a four-game sweep of the Dodgers.

On Wednesday, Alfaro was replaced by Andrew Knapp, who had one hit in three at-bats in a rare start.

Freddy Galvis, hitless in his last two games, is 4 for 7 with a homer and three RBIs against Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda.

For the first time in the last several weeks, cleanup hitter Rhys Hoskins is not in the spotlight for the Phillies. Instead, the attention has been on Aaron Altherr, who will try to finish an impressive series in style. Altherr, who hits fifth again on Thursday, is 5 for 11 with three homers and nine RBIs in the first three games against Los Angeles.

Odubel Herrera, who batted third last night and went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts, hits sixth. His season batting average from that spot in the order is .340.
