When the Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) took the field, they already had the unfortunate news that Dallas had won. This meant that they couldn’t clinch their division but they did their job and beat up the Chicago Bears pretty handily with a score of 56-11. Their strong performance was a good sign but maybe they should have saved some of that scoring for next week! Quarterback Nick Foles is still kicking butt and producing good results. Hopefully they can use the momentum of this win to help them play for all the marbles next week against the Dallas Cowboys. It’s either win their division title and enter the playoffs or go home.
As far as the New York Jets go, word on the street is that Sunday was Rex Ryan’s last home game at Metlife Stadium. He took some extra time after the game to high five and thank his fans. Quarterback Geno Smith had one of his better games as the Jets (7-8) beat the Cleveland Browns 24-13. Despite that, many people do not think that Geno Smith is the answer and he may very well be replaced. The day after the regular season ends, known as Black Monday usually sees the coaches go first so we can wait and see what happens to Rex Ryan. Changes in players normally come later.
Well the New York Giants (6-9) came out and played with some pride proving to be a spoiler for the Detroit Lions by knocking them out of the playoffs with a 23-20 victory in Overtime. The Giants need to make a lot of changes next season. Some people are ready to throw Eli Manning out the door but it is not that easy to get rid of a 2 time Super Bowl MVP! Coach Coughlin may be losing his effectiveness in getting his message across to the players and it may be time for him to go. The other question is if he really wants to keep coaching or just retire after this season.
