I hate to say I told myself so, but… The Eagles blow. Plain and simple. In the hour of real-time that it took to play five minutes of game-time (the worst five minutes of professional football I’ve ever seen, by the way), this worst show on turf gave up 24 points en route to their 10th loss of the season.
Merry, f’ing, Christmas.
