There are plenty of world champions on the field on a given day at the NovaCare Complex.

On Tuesday, there was one out there not wearing pads. USWNT star Carli Lloyd was out on the field while the Eagles and Ravens held joint practices. 

Lloyd, a Delran, New Jersey native and diehard Eagles fan, even got to try her hand at a couple field goals with Eagles kicker Jake Elliot and Ravens kicker Justin Tucker. Lloyd enjoyed getting an inside look at the team she grew up rooting for.

“It’s great. It’s obviously something you don’t get to see very often,” Lloyd said. “You see the guys playing on a week-to-week basis, but to kind of see what goes into it all – the staff, some of the guys doing extra stuff afterwards – it’s cool. It’s different. This is when all the real stuff happens. This is what people don’t see and I was glad I can be a part of it and thanks to the Eagles for having me out.”

Spoiler alert: Carli can boot it.

Of course, this isn't the first time she's shown NFL players how it's done.

Watch Lloyd nail a long field goal and hear her thoughts on the Eagles’ Super Bowl chances in the video above.
