Jake Elliott did it again.

It was an ugly first half, one that might have ended the Eagles’ season if the game was only two quarters. But the Birds found their groove in the second half and won on a late field goal for a 25-22 victory to make things in the NFC East interesting again.

Josh Adams had a big game on offense, running for 84 yards and a touchdown. 82 of those yards came in the second half when the offensive line told Doug Pederson to run the ball. And it worked.

Meanwhile, the injury-depleted defense held their own in the second half. Or I think they did. Pat Shurmur decided to make Saquon Barkley a non-factor in the second half after he single-handedly torched the Eagles. It was a dumb decision.

Kevin will have more in his observations post, but with a Dallas loss to New Orleans on Thursday and an Eagles win over the Redskins on Monday Night Football, there’ll be a three-way tie for the division lead. So much for the season being over, for now.

The Roundup:


The Sixers sucked on Friday, falling to the lowly Cavaliers 121-112 at home. At least Franklin did this to a Cavs fan:

Then last night, after the Sixers fell behind early to the Nets, Jimmy Butler showed why the Sixers traded for him with another game-winning bucket.

Jimmy G. Buckets. The “G” stands for “gets.”

Meanwhile, is Markelle Fultz on his way out of Philly?

For now, however, Fultz is still around the team as if nothing has changed except his playing time. The Sixers keep saying they will do whatever is best for Fultz, but the situation has overshadowed the success the team has had this season.

Some sources have said that, despite the team’s statements, Fultz is no longer in the Sixers’ long-term plans. And they are no longer using his shoulder as an excuse for his performances.

Amari Cooper made fun of his free throw form and Fultz retweeted and enjoyed it.


The Flyers had a typical Flyers weekend. They shut out the Rangers 4-0 on Black Friday at home and all looked well.

And then the following night, they got shut out by the Maple Leafs 6-0 and allowed a first period hat-trick to Andreas Johnsson, a third liner, in the process. What a team.

Meanwhile, Gritty crashed a wedding. At least there’s that.

The Flyers host Ottawa on Tuesday. While you wait and maybe hope Dave Hakstol gets fired (which probably won’t happen), check out a new episode of Snow The Goalie.


Here’s what happened on the local college hoops scene this weekend:


In other sports news, the Bills and Jaguars made their game interesting by fighting.

Tyler Lockett recreated AI’s stepover.

Phil Mickelson defeated Tiger Woods in “The Match”, but Bleacher Report faced technical problems that resulted in a free stream at the last minute and refunds everywhere.


In the news, the Delaware Memorial Bridge reopened after a gas leak.
