I'm Talking Playoffs in Week 1

Yes Donovan there are such things as ties. And in this case a tie in records is as ugly as a tie against the Cincinnati Bengals.

A win by the Eagles this Sunday means a head-to-head victory over a team that the Eagles will surely be fighting with for a playoff spot. If 1 playoff spot remains for the Eagles and Panthers this season and each team is sporting identical W-L records the Eagles, if victorious this Sunday, get the nod. Case closed, easy to figure out, no confusing tie breakers.

Look I am as confident as the next Eagles fan about the team this year. I see a record of 11-5 or 12-4. I see an NFC East title and automatic playoff birth. But the Giants are a pretty damn good team themselves so a division title isn't guaranteed. The ticket to the playoffs may have to come via the wild card. And when you start talking wild card you start talking about the entire NFC.

This is why games against the Panthers, Falcons, and even the Saints this season are huge. Each team is possibly playoff caliber. Losses to any of these teams could mean no playoff football in Philadelphia.

Last season's entry into the playoffs most likely used up an eternity of luck for the Eagles franchise. The Eagles need to take care of business on the field this season. Beat the Panthers Sunday (despite it only being Week 1) and the road to the playoffs becomes a bit easier. And yes I'm talking playoffs!

FANS GET A CHANCE TO WIN TICKETS FOR EAGLES CLUB SEATS

Turkey Hill Dairy and Eagles Touchdown Sundae are at it again, this time with a sweet giveaway



LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. (SEPTEMBER 10, 2009) – Eagles fans have a reason to celebrate their home team yet again. This season, when fans buy a container of Turkey Hill Dairy’s Eagles Touchdown Sundae, official ice cream of the Philadelphia Eagles, they can enter for a chance to win a pair of Eagles Club Seats at an upcoming 2009-2010 home game. Approximately twice a month, two winners will be chosen to receive a pair of tickets to each of this season’s eight home games, for a total of 16 lucky winners and 32 free tickets.

Fans who enter will also be eligible to win the grand prize Fly-Away Road Trip. One Lucky winner and three friends will attend an Eagles road game during the 2010 season, complete with roundtrip airfare, hotel and game tickets.

“We’ve been a part of the Eagles community for four years and each year, things get better and better,” said Turkey Hill President Quintin Frey. “We don’t just want to give Eagles fans a great tasting ice cream to enjoy, but also every opportunity to be part of the team.”

Not only can fans enter to win an unforgettable Eagles experience, but purchases of Turkey Hill Dairy’s Eagles Touchdown Sundae also support Philadelphia youths. Five cents from each container sold goes to support the Eagles Youth Partnership, a program working to increase opportunities and improve the quality of life for children in the Philadelphia region through health and education programs.

To date, Turkey Hill has donated more than $85,000 to the Eagles Youth Partnership, an amount Frey is confident will exceed $100,000 by the first quarter of 2010.

Drawings for the Eagles Club Seats will take place approximately every two weeks during the upcoming season. Fans can go to turkeyhill.com/eagles and enter the code found on specially-marked packages of Eagles Touchdown Sundae for their chance to win.
