Starting cornerback Ronald Darby will be returning to the field on Sunday night’s primetime game against the Dallas Cowboys. Much to the fans anticipation, they will be able to see Darby’s talent and skills in this week’s game as his last game played was in week one. As the Eagles secondary welcomes their number one cornerback onto the field, he will certainly assist the defense in their attempts to stop Dak Prescott.
While the Eagles defense only allows 249.4 passing yards per game, Ronald Darby will quickly be a big factor into shutting down opposing receivers and making game-changing plays. On another note, the defense prevents their opponents to 19.9 points per game which is 10th among the league.
As Darby return to the Eagles lineup, he will be looking to play a huge role in Sunday’s big divisional game. He could not have come back at a more opportune time as the Eagles look to win eight games in a row and improve to 9-1. A win in tonight’s game would essentially lock up the NFC East division for the Birds and give us a great opportunity to get a high seed in the playoffs.
If the Eagles were to go on to win the NFC East division, it would be the first time since 2013. The Eagles then went on to lose to the Saints in the Wild Card matchup of that year. That means a playoff win would mean so much to this current Eagles roster as they would like to make a deep run in the playoffs this year if they continue their early success.
Darby will be willing to do whatever he has to in order to lead the Philadelphia Eagles to a big victory over our rivals, the Dallas Cowboys. He will be playing an important role in tonight’s matchup as the secondary looks to force some big turnovers throughout the game. The Eagles come into this primetime game with 11 interceptions throughout nine games.
As for Philadelphia Eagles fans, they have been waiting to see this offseason acquisition since week one and will be able to feel assured that he’s finally back. In saying that, Darby and the defense will have to make their presence known as the game goes along. Welcome back Ronald Darby and fly Eagles fly!
