The New England Patriots, only one loss on the 2015 season. The Philadelphia Eagles, seven losses on the season, three of which in just the last three weeks. The Patriots lost last week, and haven’t lost two straight games in forever. The game’s stage is at Gillette Stadium. No one expected the Eagles to win this game. No analysts, the game’s announcers, and even most Eagles fans.
How could we? After the display the Eagles performed the last three weeks especially, and with Sam Bradford coming off an injury. The Eagles Defense, allowing 110 points in the last three losses going against a Tom Brady who has something to prove this season and has been remarkable for most of it.
But the Eagles dug down deep. Very deep. They executed. They put pressure on Brady. Our Offense ran it down the Pats’ throats, but with different guys. Chip Kelly adjusted for this game, and had a plan. It took Defense and a ridiculous Special Teams to beat the Patriots this week, and thanks to losses by the Giants and Redskins… into a 3-way tie for the sad NFC East. Come on, with a 100-yard pick-6, a punt return for a touchdown, AND a blocked punt for a touchdown… ALL IN THE SAME GAME! It was an amazing game to watch, and gave Eagles fans something huge to cheer for. This season is not over yet, and there is plenty of football to play, and yes, cheer for.
