In the latest post-game press conference, the Eagles’ head coach, Nick Sirianni, looked upset about the team’s performance in the Week 18 showdown. Anxious Sirianni accepted they weren’t at their full potential in today’s matchup.

Highlighting his upset, Nick said, “Yeah, obviously, we weren’t good enough. Uh, well, we didn’t coach well enough, we didn’t play well enough, and there’s not an explanation. We just didn’t do the things we needed to do to be successful, and that starts with me.”

Then the panelists inquired if, due to the terrible defeat this season, the players would put their faith in him. He said, “Yeah, I mean, you can ask them that. As far as you know, we’ve obviously lost five of our six games, which doesn’t discredit the rest of the season; you can ask them.

Sirianni still has faith in the Eagles team despite their terrible loss this season. However, the recent Week 18 matchup showcased a downturn in the Eagles’ defense. Jalen Hurts had a rough first half with only a 7-18 passing rate and one interception, and to make matters worse, he suffered an injury to his middle finger. Additionally, Sydney Brown was unexpectedly inactivated due to a knee injury.

On the other hand, the Giants have been impressively electrifying this season, with Mason Crosby’s jaw-dropping 25-yard field goal in the second half of the game. As the Eagles are sailing through their upcoming match against the Buccaneers, an NFL insider remembers a similar situation from the 1999 matchup between the Dolphins and Seahawks.

Eagles match the ’99 Dolphins in rare feat

After the showdown between the Dolphins and Seahawks, a writer named Jeff Kerr shared a similar instance of the Eagles and Giants matchup as he compares it with the Miami Dolphins and Seahawks showdown in 1999, with the post captioned, “The #Eagles will be the first team to lose 5 of their last 6 games and make the playoffs since the 1999 #Dolphins.”

During that season, the Dolphins had a promising start with a 7-1 record, but they faced an immense struggle in the finals that shattered their Super Bowl hopes. During the wild card round in 1999, the Dolphins defeated the Seahawks with a 20-17 record. However, at the end of the season, the Dolphins suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Jaguars with a 62-7 score.
