The Philadelphia Eagles are the best team in the NFL this year, but they have still experienced some issues off the field.
A couple of weeks ago, controversy erupted when a celebrity fan refused to stand for the National Anthem during a game. Before that, a fan got busted ogling another fan with a particularly big derriere.
This week, a fresh brouhaha arose when the ex-girlfriend of one of the squad’s most prominent players came forward with his intimate text messages.
The young lady in question, who according to TPS is running back Miles Sanders’ former flame, revealed quite the array of information.

The replies to the video were also quite telling:
This has been a rough week for NFL stars and their correspondences getting leaked. Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson also just got caught up in a messy situation a few days back.
It will be interesting to see if Sanders opts to respond to this mess. He is fresh off a tremendous game against the Green Bay Packers where he rushed for 143 yards and two scores on 21 carries.
Sanders is also just having a great year in general – already amassing career-highs in both rushing yards and touchdowns.
This will certainly harsh his mellow, though.
Philly currently boasts the best record in the NFC East and looks to be a top contender for the Super Bowl. How the team finishes out the year will be telling.
Russell’s Broncos teammates didn’t show up to his birthday, but at least Ciara had a good time. https://t.co/RKBw8nJdVd

Match-ups loom against the Tennessee Titans, New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints and Giants again. That isn’t an easy sleight of games.
Both the Giants and Cowboys are quite formidable these days, so three out of the last six coming against them isn’t going to be easy.
That said, as long as this most recent distraction doesn’t mess with Sanders’ mind, the Eagles have all the talent necessary to make some real noise this year.
