EAGLES 24 Cowboys 22. How do you prefer to remember that game? As Brandon Boykin’s national coming out party? Maybe Kyle Orton’s retirement ceremony? I like to think of it as Chip Kelly’s first playoff game.
BTW the NFL Network is replaying it Monday at 5:30 p.m.
While it doesn’t count as an actual playoff game, there can be no doubt that there was a playoff atmosphere to it. It was literally win or go home for both teams. Same as a playoff game. While I think it wasn’t the stiffest test since Tony Romo wasn’t out there, the job is beating whoever they put in front of you, and our guys managed to get that done.
On Monday those of you who wish to re-live it, can watch it again. I’ll have it on but I won’t be able to actually watch, since it cuts across the time I usually reserve for researching and writing the next days article. Plus I have to get my fantasy rankings in order, because repeating as champ is FAR from automatic, (and I’m chasing a 4-peat this year).
I just thought I’d get the news out, that for once the NFL Network remembered that our games DO exist. Maybe if enough of us tune in and the ratings are high enough, they’ll be encouraged to show more of our games. That’s why my cable box will be tuned in even though I’m not.
