There is a winning vibe in the city of brotherly love.

The Philadelphia Phillies stole homefield advantage from the best team in baseball, the Atlanta Braves, as the best of five series heads back to Philadelphia with Red October. The winner of this series most likely will play the Arizona Diamondbacks, as they have a commanding 2-0 lead over the heavily favored 100-win Dodgers.

My opinion, the winner of the Phillies and the Braves Divisional Series matchup will be the National League representative in the World Series. As for the 5-0 Philadelphia Eagles, that are not playing their best football yet, but still stacking wins and remain just one of two teams in the NFL that are still undefeated.

The Philadelphia Eagles have a commanding two-game lead over the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East Division, but are tied with the San Francisco 49ers for the No.1 seed in the NFC. The Eagles schedule will be getting extremely hard, as they soon head down the murderers’ row by facing the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, the aforementioned 49ers and the Cowboys twice.

The scary part about the Eagles is, they haven’t clicked yet as a team, once Philadelphia starts clicking on all cylinders, they have the potential to be a Super Bowl winning team. One weapon that Philadelphia have mastered, that nine other teams tried and failed, is the famous push-push-play, which the Eagles call the “Brotherly Shove.

This play for the Eagles is almost unstoppable with future Hall of Fame offensive linemen Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson, and a quarterback that squats over 600 pounds.

The league is in talks to ban this play, due to players from other teams getting hurt. This pending decision will hurt the Eagles in the long run, if the NFL throws the book and bans this play for the Iggles, so they better win all this year, while the play is legal.
