Another game another Brotherly Shove
Sean Desai is the adjuster
In the Week 9 win, the Eagles held the Cowboys to six points in the second half, and then held the Chiefs scoreless in the second half Monday night after allowing 17 first half points.
Sean Desai and his Philadelphia defense will take your best shot in the first half, and then they’ll adjust and snuff the opponent out.
