"I knew he was coming,&...

Eagles sneak out of Cleveland with win, calls for Foles can be heard

Eagles win despite Vicks poor play Ugly, that is the only word you can use in describing the Eagles 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday. The fact that the Eagles won the game with 5 turnovers is nothing short of a miracle, well it did have much to do with how bad the Browns are.

The defense allowed just 16 points, but they were playing the Cleveland Browns, with a rookie quarterback who threw for 188 yards. Philadelphia should have held the Browns to a low output offensively. Even though it is somewhat good, it is more so expected. The Bad This...
