Your Philadelphia Eagles are 4-1. That’s right, with a big win over the Arizona Cardinals yesterday, the Eagles are atop the NFC East standings and are among the best in the whole NFC.
Former Redskins quarterback, RGIII likes what the Eagles are doing:
Many liked the music at the Linc yesterday, especially the tribute to the late Tom Petty:

Peyton Manning saw a statue in his honor unveiled and had his number retired yesterday before the Colts won in overtime. He set up one final play with the guys who helped him get to that moment:

Shortly after this ceremony was the National Anthem, where several 49ers players took a knee. That prompted Vice President Mike Pence, who was in attendance, to leave the game. This was part of the vice president’s statement afterwards:
“I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem…”
On the surface this may seem like one thing, but this reporting leads many to believe it was all set up:
FLAG: Was Pence leaving Colts game a political stunt? Reporters were told to stay in van bc "there may be an early departure from the game."

Tonight’s Monday Night Football game might have the highest ratings of the season as the trailer for the newest Star Wars movie will debut during the Bears-Vikings contest.
Saturday was a good day for college football as well, with both Oklahoma and Michigan getting upset by unranked teams. Those losses allowed for Penn State, who won big over Northwestern, to move to third in the latest Associated Press Top 25.
CBS’s Jay Feely did not have as good of a day in the booth on Saturday:

The Sixers are still winless in the pre-season and got some bad news with Richaun Holmes, who has a fractured left wrist. According to the team’s release, he will be re-evaluated in three weeks.
However, those on NBA TV aren’t completely buying in to The Process yet, but still believe the team is playoff bound:
