Doug Pederson got the best of Sean Payton once again. Pederson shot a 78 in Sunday’s final round to bring home more money for the Eagles Autism Challenge. “It’s very special. I’m very pleased,” said Pederson, who finished 32nd overall in the event. “If I would have donated, it would have been just as special either way. This is a charity that is close to the Philadelphia Eagles and our owner, Jeffrey Lurie.”
The Eagles have already raised more than $2.5 million for autism research this year. Payton’s donation will only increase that figure.
To recap, here’s what all of Pederson’s bets with Payton have netted the Eagles so far:
- The ability for the Eagles to wear their home midnight green jerseys in an away game at New Orleans.
- A big order of “New Orleans food” including beignets and coffee for the Eagles to enjoy.
- A donation to the Eagles’ Autism Challenge.
Doug’s the man.
