The Eagles are 8-0, with a cupcake remaining schedule, starting with the Commanders next Monday night at the Linc.
So, Angelo Cataldo asked Eagles center Jason Kelce if it’s better to lose a game and get it out of the way before the playoffs?.
Here’s Kelce’s answer:
“I certainly hope we don’t lose, coming up here,” Kelce said today on WIP.
“I don’t know. I’m so focused on just one game at a time, Angelo. It’s tough for me to say something like that. I get it. All teams want to go through adversity. Adversity has ways of shaping you. You want to be put in situations throughout the year so that come playoffs you’re ready to handle those situations. Now, I don’t think that needs to happen losing games or anything like that.
“And we’ve had some tight games coming down in the fourth quarter. They haven’t been like two minute drive type to go win it, but we’ve had some big four minute drives. We’ve had some games where the other team starting coming back and we were able to put our foot back on the gas. I think adversity is important for any team, any person to go through. Those end up being the events that shape you and stick with you the most. I understand that narrative, but man it’s hard to think about something like that. We’re just focused on Washington.”
