After two weeks of the season, the Eagles are right where they were expected to be, at 1-1 and preparing for a home opener against a division foe that will tilt the confidence seesaw in one direction or the other. When ticking off the wins and losses on the schedule ahead of time – always a popular and pointless exercise – it was anticipated that the Eagles would beat the Redskins and lose to the Chiefs to begin the year.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The lessons that emerged from the Eagles’ opening game against the Washington Redskins weren’t altered very much on Sunday when they went on the road for what was supposed to be a more revealing afternoon against the Kansas City Chiefs. What was true against the Redskins was largely true against the Chiefs, even though one team is expected to be pretty bad and the other is listed among the real contenders in the league.
On the surface of Sunday’s matchup between the Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs – and a good bit below the surface, as well – there isn’t much to inspire confidence that the Eagles can come away from the game with an uplifting win over former coach Andy Reid. The Chiefs were 12-4 last season and opened the schedule this year with an impressive road win over the New England Patriots in the NFL’s debut game.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
