For one day in November, the Philadelphia craving became an afterthought.
The Eagles played Fils’ second violin last Thursday night, which is evidenced by local TV ratings:

The undefeated Eagles took care of the miserable Texans in a labor way, 29-17. They finally suffered a setback when it came to eyeballs, with the Phillies trying to upset the good team in Houston with a whopping 25.9 ratings and 50 stakes, while the footballers still produced 8.7 and 16 shares.
Two-thirds of people watching television in the Delaware Valley were watching sports, and it’s possible that a significant portion of another third have lost their remote control and gone into streaming options.
Although the NFL is king when it comes to TV ratings, picking the Phillies was the logical choice for 4v4 fans. The World Cup vs. Soccer was a mid-season, magical race against the baseball version of the Stormtroopers against Goliath trying to figure out How to beat boredom against David’s equivalent but perhaps his little cousin.
But Saturday turned into midnight Cinderella Philadelphia.
Velez finally gave in to the Astros when the bat fell for the third game in a row.
To jump on this dog, the Federation snatched defeat from the jaws of victory earlier in the day by failing to bleed for two minutes on the clock in the MLS Cup and then losing on penalties to Mayfair native and La Salle producer John McCarthy, who once played for the Federation and was only on The pitch in its biggest moment because the Los Angeles FC home goalkeeper broke his leg in the game.
Speaking of torture, Philadelphia became the first sports city to be eliminated in tournaments on the same day in history.
A superstitious kind might suggest that athletic gods are turning away from the discipline of short-term cheating for city heavyweights in favor of the rocky teams that usually define Philly’s loyalties.
Now everything from the point of view of focus is back to normal and back to the main event.
This time around, though, the only bunny foot Philadelphia needs can be linked to injuries, the only NFL equaliser.
I’ve already seen the impact of losing Jordan Davis to a sprained ankle in Houston and that will continue for at least three more games with the big rookie in the injured reserve. Another issue this week could be the health of corner slot Avonte Maddox, who apparently adjusted his hamstrings on late punt coverage against Texas.
When it comes to performance, the jinx does not exist for the talented.
You can also rest assured that while the gorgeous Jason Kelce made an appearance in “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” after the 2017-18 Super Bowl, everything doesn’t matter when it comes to the way fans decide to cheer on their favorites.
The Eagles are the only team unbeaten in the NFL and 8-0 for the first time in franchise history because they’re so good. They were the stars of the NFL Astros in the first half of their schedule, and it becomes much easier to reach the ultimate goal when you’re the team with more squad-makers.
This was highlighted again on Sunday when the No. 2 NFC team on paper, Minnesota, already shocked by the Birds, barely looked like a world class player to outsmart Washington, and Buffalo, the only team so explosive that everyone is shaking in their boots, They managed 17 points against the New York Jets and lost for the second time.
Josh Allen, the only player before Galen Hurts in the MVP when it comes to betting markets, explained losing Bills in a unique way, “It’s hard to win when quarterbacks play like s-t,” something the Eagles’ caller signal hasn’t done this season.
In many ways, the Eagles seemed a little rested to get a bit of a break from the microscope they were always under the microscope during the Phillies’ unexpected run.
They also always understood that this was about to come to an end and now the microscope was about to become the high-powered type because the Sixers and Flyers wouldn’t be realistic contenders in winter sports.
This Philadelphia team is well equipped to handle all expectations, so adjust with your sports god if you need sugar pills, but understand that Nick Siriani’s team is a vaccine for the city’s insecurity.
You can even get rid of the masks of the vulnerable. This time you are the big guy.
