Eagles 24, Redskins 16, Sunday, November 17, 2013 Can I just tell you how glad I am that that monkey is off all our backs? Still, just to be on the safe side, if the Eagles *do* manage to win the NFC East and get into the playoffs (which is looking increasingly possible), do you think we can petition Roger Goodell to play the wildcard round on the road? Stud of the week: Brandon Boykin gets a repeat. He’s been doing an outstanding job as the gunner on special teams this season in general. He’s playing well at cornerback when he’s in. And then there was the critical pick in the end zone to seal the win. And no, I could not find a decent picture of it, so we’ll have to settle for this awesome shot of him celebrating a defensive stop. I also have to give a major shout out to Shady, who passed 1000 yards receiving this week, is still leading the league in rushing, and tacked on 73 yards receiving and two TDs. You know, just an average day for him. And then there’s this: GIF via SB Nation. Lots of Skins fans are complaining about Shady. Thing is, that’s not just any old Redskins flag; that’s a “You’re In Redskins Country” flag. That numbnuts up there is waving in Shady’s face. At the Linc. In Philly, where we are not necessarily known for our good manners. Dude’s lucky he didn’t get his ass kicked. Quit yer whining. The Eagles DOMINATED for three quarters. Everything was clicking. Foles was throwing well and spreading it around. In addition to Shady, DJax, Brent Celek, Riley Cooper, Bryce Brown, and Zack Ertz all had big receptions. Foles had a 4 yard TD run himself and picked up an additional 40+ on the ground. The Redskins were getting some yards and long drives on the ground, but they couldn’t finish and RGIII couldn’t pass for ****. The defense recorded four sacks (Cole, Cole, Barwin, Goode) and a recovered fumble (Cox). And then it was like the Eagles went to sleep and the Redskins woke up. Shoegal and Oscar were here for the game. Oscar’s a big Skins fan (he’s a DC native), and he and I were having the battle of the pessimists: “My team is going to blow it.” “No, my team is going to blow it.” “No, MY team is going to blow it.” Etc. In the end, his team blew it. Thank God. I *was* wearing the lucky socks.
