NBC Sports Philadelphia chronicles classic Philadelphia Eagles games with multiplatform coverage

PHILADELPHIA (October 23, 2017) — NBC Sports Philadelphia looks back at legendary Philadelphia Eagles games through the eyes of the players and coaches who played them. Host Michael Barkann is joined by NFL Hall of Fame writer Ray Didinger and many of the players and coaches who played major roles in the outcome as they breakdown the games.
 
In addition to the Eagles Classic Games, special editions of "Philly Sports Talk Podcast," will accompany each episode. Ray Didinger will host chat sessions on NBC Sports Philadelphia's Facebook page, with additional videos and articles available on NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com.
 
"These are some of the most iconic Philadelphia Eagles games of all time," said Barkann. "We take a look back through the eyes of the players and coaches, with Ray providing his analysis, having covered many of these games for the Philadelphia Inquirer and NFL Films."
 
"The Body Bag Game" Premieres Wed 10.25 at 10 p.m. 
Interview: Seth Joyner

Buddy Ryan's ferocious defense records three sacks and two defensive touchdowns in a 28-14 home win versus the Redskins on Monday Night Football. The Eagles physically punish Washington all game long as a total of six Redskins players leave the contest to injury – including two quarterbacks. Eagles safety William Frizzell is famously remembered for turning to the Washington bench and asking, "You need any more body bags?"
 
"Ask any Eagles fan their favorite game," said Ray Didinger, "More times than not, they'll say 'the Body Bag Game.'" Played under the bright lights of Monday Night Football, Buddy Ryan's defense, including Reggie White, Jerome Brown and Seth Joyner were unstoppable."
 
Miracle of the Meadowlands 1 – Premieres Wed 11.8 at 8 p.m.
Interviews: Quarterback Ron Jaworski, head coach Dick Vermeil

With the Eagles seemingly headed for defeat against the host NY Giants, cornerback Herman Edwards scoops up a fumbled handoff from Joe Pisarcik to Larry Csonka and races 26 yards for a TD in the final 20 seconds of the play. The win helps propel the Eagles to their first winning season since 1966 and into the playoffs for the first time since 1960.
 
"All of a sudden I see a huge pile of bodies, everyone running towards the end zone, people jumping on the pile, even people standing in the end zone were jumping on the pile," said Dick Vermeil.
 
Miracle of the Meadowlands 2 – Premieres Wed 11.8 at 9 p.m.
Interviews
: Michael Vick, Desean Jackson, Brent Celek, Andy Reid

With 14 seconds remaining and the game knotted at 31, NY Giants punter Matt Dodge boots a line drive to DeSean Jackson who returns it for an electrifying 65-yard, game-winning TD. The punt return fuels the Eagles to victory and caps off a 28-point comeback, which began with the team trailing 31-10 with eight minutes left in the game.
 
"25 years in football, I've never been a part of a game like that," said Celek.
 
2005 NFC Championship Game – Premieres Wed 11.15 at 8 p.m.
Interview
: Brian Dawkins

The Eagles reach the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1980 season after defeating the Atlanta Falcons, 27-10, in the NFC Championship Game. Two TD passes from quarterback Donovan McNabb key the offense, while the defense clamps down on dynamic Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick. As the clock winds down to 0:00, the Lincoln Financial Field crowd begins chanting, "Super Bowl! Super Bowl!"
 
"Hold on to those memories from that game and that time," said Brian Dawkins. "Because I do, and they are good ones."
