48-7. The worst loss a defending Super Bowl champ has ever had. I don’t know what else to say.

Injuries once again destroyed the Birds’ secondary. Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox, and Sidney Jones all went down and didn’t return. And the snap counts didn’t look good. And neither does this:

Fun stuff.

To add, Malcolm Jenkins flipped off his former head coach, Sean Payton. He downplayed it.

“I’m a competitor. I love Sean to death. I know what type of guy and coach he is. That was more so personal between me and him,” Jenkins told Clark.

“We talked after the game. It’s all good. I know Sean. They’re going to go for it. I was more so upset that it was on me,” Jenkins said. “I got a lot of respect for what they’re doing, especially Sean.”

The Eagles host the Giants on Sunday. Kevin will have more of the game later this morning.

The Roundup:

At least we have Jimmy Butler. Before his home debut, the Sixers recreated the Moses Malone Sports Illustrated cover with Butler instead. That was pretty damn cool.

Jimmy delivered some really good action against the Jazz in a 113-107 win, which included a 35-shot, no assist performance by Donovan Mitchell.

And then came Saturday against the Hornets. Kemba Walker scored 60 points and nearly carried the team on his back. Then Jimmy Butler showed up:


They won 122-119 in OT. They’re back in action tonight at home against the Phoenix Suns.

The Carmelo Anthony rumors surfaced on the internet. That move shouldn’t happen.

With the Eagles sucking and the Sixers doing well again, the Flyers are still mediocre! They just lost Brian Elliott for two weeks with a lower-body injury, forcing Cal Pickard to be the starting goalie with Alex Lyon backing him up. Not great!

But they almost took two points from Tampa Bay on Saturday. Down 5-1 with just under 11 minutes left in regulation, the Flyers scored four goals to force overtime. And they lost. Because of course they did.

They’re off for some time before playing the Sabres in Buffalo on Wednesday night.

According to a Venezuelan reporter, the Phillies are no longer interested in Manny Machado. Good news: That isn’t Bryce Harper. So spend that money and get a little stupid with it, John Middleton!

Meanwhile, Gabe Kapler greeted pediatric patients just after losing his house to wildfires in California.

In college football, Temple scored 27 unanswered points to beat South Florida 27-17 and improve to 7-4. This also happened.

In college hoops, Villanova was upset by Furman on Saturday 76-68 in OT. Not great either!
