Ryan Fitzpatrick seems to have the Eagles’ number lately...last year when he was with Tampa Bay, he also torched the Eagles and the Bucs won that game as well. Don’t know what it is about him, I guess that occasional “Fitzmagic” he’s able to conjure up at times seems to work on the Eagles for whatever reason. Yeah, that punter-to-kicker trick play TD was especially brutal. Three straight games now where the Eagles fell for a trick play that resulted in a game-changing TD. Just gotta hope that the Cowboys keep fucking up as well, though the Eagles do actually have to win SOME of these games...argh.blocho wrote: ↑December 2nd, 2019, 4:02 amBrutal. Sorry, GT, that must have been a difficult game to watch. Looked like a vintage Fitzpatrick game - throws a pick on his first pass and is great the rest of the way. The Eagles are somehow not out of the playoff picture, mainly because the race for the NFC East crown has become a race to the bottom. The division winner could very well end with a losing record.
Packers had a good rebound game, mainly because Daniel Jones turned in a vintage Eli-type performance. I see what people like about him, though. He made some good throws. Whether he can figure out how to stop turning over the ball so much will determine his career.
Meanwhile, I'm currently watching the Patriots get their asses handed to them by the Texans. Everyone has known for weeks that the Patriots offense was questionable. Like most, I thought they would figure it out eventually. They haven't, and if the current result holds, we can't say they're a top-three team in the league right now.
A good week for trick plays. I really liked the Dolphins' touchdown pass from the punter to the kicker, and the Texans' reverse speed option with the QB as the pitch option. Never seen either of those plays before.
Tom Brady finally seems to be aging, it’s a joy to see the Pats offense struggle (...I say this, but would it surprise me if they figure it out and get back to a Super Bowl yet again? Not really).
