EAGLES CAN'T CATCH BALLS, FALL TO CAROLINA 27-16
Ryan Mathews had a good night, as he scored on a career-high 63-yard touchdown run. Besides that, he had five carries for 34 yards. He had one carry after that touchdown run. DeMarco Murray rushed 18 times for 65 yards. The offensive line is probably the team's biggest weakness, with a ton of injuries on it, and showed during last night's game.
The defense continued to shine, as the unit recorded three turnovers. Byron Maxwell, who might have had his best game as an Eagle this season, and Malcolm Jenkins had interceptions, while Nolan Carroll forced a fumble. With 19 takeaways, the team leads the league in that category.
The Eagles are 3-4 and are tied for second in the NFC East behind the Giants, who defeated the Cowboys. They do not have the tiebreaker advantage over Washington, who had a historic come-from-behind win against Tampa Bay, since they lost to the Redskins in Week 4. Do whatever you want next Sunday, because it's a bye week for the Birds before they take on Dallas on the road. I'm watching RedZone. (RECAP)
FLYERS BEAT RANGERS IN A SHOOTOUT!
Michael Raffl collapsed on the bench during the 2nd period of the game after sustaining a probable head injury, although the team is calling it an "upper-body injury" and that he is "fine." Backup goalie Michal Neuvirth returned to practice on Friday, but he will be able to be activated from the IR for Thursday's game against New Jersey.
That being said, the team is 4-2-1 in seven games with nine points, with regulation losses to Florida (which was a horrible game for some other reasons) and Dallas. That's not a bad start at all. The team takes on Buffalo tomorrow night in Danny Briere Retirement Night. (RECAP)
PHILLIES EXPECTED TO NAME MATT KLENTAK AS NEW GM
And also meanwhile, our former GM, Ruben Amaro Jr, is probably headed to Boston to be the first base coach of the Red Sox. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
NIK STAUSKAS MIGHT NOT PLAY WEDNESDAY AGAINST BOSTON
Nik Stauskas practiced for the first time in 24 days yesterday, but only at "50 percent intensity." He joined Scottie Wilbekin and Furkan Aldemir for players practicing at "50 percent intensity." The team's final roster of 15 will have to be determined later today by 5 PM. (REPORT)
COLLEGE GAMEDAY DOESN'T KNOW WHERE THEY'LL BE NEXT WEEKEND
Well hold up for a second. Washington State defeated Arizona 45-42 on Saturday, and they face Stanford at home Saturday night. Pullman really wants GameDay, which is why no decision has been made...
CHEESESTEAK FESTIVAL REVIEW
I also met up with our good friends Megan and Gianna of the popularswagfoodphilly account on Instagram. They sold #StopWorldHanger shirts for $15, $5 of which went to Philabundance. If you like really good food (which odds are you do), give them a follow. They also like Whiz Wit on their cheesesteaks.
