About 8 plays into the game it was all elementary. The Cowboys choked at home against the Lions and the score flashed up on the big screen at the Linc. The next moment, Andy Reid pulled his starters.
The JV team, led by AJ Feeley went on to beat the Falcons 24-17. Hank Baskett had 7 catches for 177 yards and a TD, Jason Avant had 4 catches and a TD, AJ Feeley had 321 yards and 3 TDs... The young guys just went out and had a good time. The New Years Eve party started very early in Philly.
After an unlikely run the Eagles have finished the year 10-6, NFC East Champions, and as the 3rd seed in the NFC. The team that once had nothing to lose now has a fresh set of expectations. This isn't a rag tag team making desperate run at the playoffs anymore. This is a real contender now.
Next week at 4p, it begins. The Eagles host division rival New York Giants. The storybook that has been the second half of this Eagles season just keeps getting better.
Congrats Eagles on the division title and happy new year to everyone that Bleeds Green!
