Will Phils be best of bad in Philly?
The Phillies finished 2015 with the majors' worst record but have the best winning percentage among Philadelphia's "big four" teams during this calendar year with about a month to go. And they won't lose another game this year.
Nolan Carroll suffered a broken ankle Thursday, and the Eagles signed Jaylen Watkins from the Bills' practice squad to take Carroll's roster spot.
Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer
The Eagles have signed CB Jaylen Watkins, the half-brother of Bills WR Sammy Watkins, from Buffalo's practice squad to Philadelphia's 53-man. That sets up the possibility that the Watkins brothers square off when the Bills play the Eagles on Dec. 13.
Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith debate if there is any hope left for the Cowboys, the Packers' bad loss and if the Chip Kelly era is done in Philadelphia.
Twice in four days, the Eagles have taken the field against a lesser opponent and gotten thoroughly dominated.
Eagles have taken a turn for the worse
Philadelphia's defense has been nowhere to be found over the last two games. Against the Buccaneers and Lions, the Eagles allowed 10 touchdowns passes, the most allowed in a two-game span in team history.
Murray was nowhere to be found
DeMarco Murray carried the ball just 14 times for a measly 30 yards against the Lions. He also failed to catch a pass for the first time this season. The Eagles RB finished with a disappointing three fantasy points. Thanksgiving Day fantasy winners/losers
Burton pressed into action for Eagles
Trey Burton was his usual solid self on special teams for the Eagles, but it was his production at tight end that earned him a game ball. The second-year player shined filling in for an injured Zach Ertz. Game balls
Eagles DC: Chip Kelly committed to Philly
"Absolutely," said Billy Davis of the embattled Eagles coach, around who rumors are swirling that he'll head back to college. "Not kind of committed. All-in committed. I know it. He is a fighter. He don't run." The Eagles have given up 45 points in back-to-back weeks.
Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis has no doubt in his mind that Chip Kelly is committed to being the Eagles coach and that he'll be back in that role next season.
To say Chip Kelly has failed as a coach is lacking in perspective, but it's fair to say his tenure as the guy making personnel decisions has been questionable, Bill Barnwell writes.
The Eagles' holiday shopping could include a device to help avoid interceptions, and college visors Chip Kelly could use to poke fun at fans.
Chip Kelly says the Eagles' woes "start with me" while his players are ready to fight for his job after being outscored 90-31 in two consecutive games.
A look at Philadelphia Eagles players who were "up" and who were "down" in Thursday's 45-14 loss to the Detroit Lions.
In four days, the Eagles have allowed 90 points, 951 yards and 10 touchdown passes. They are 4-7 with a date with Tom Brady and the Patriots next.
