2Q: Eagles 22: Patriots 12
No one predicted the crazy straddle tackle.
No one predicted all the missed kicks. Or that given all the missed kicks we’d have a rookie FG record set.
No one predicted QBs as receivers.
Everyone predicted halftime. But perhaps not quite that many set changes.
3Q: Eagles 29; Patriots 26. Wait, what?
Yep. Stay tuned.
THE EAGLES WON!!!
Eagles 41; Patriots 33.
Fiona is RIGHT!
No one predicted that we’d have so many combined points. Or so many combined offensive yards (1,152 yards – the most in any post season game ever). Or so few punts. Or that the game would come down to the last play.
Everyone predicted that Dad would coach and ref from the couch. And talk during the commercials.
I (correctly) predicted the commercials would win.
The Puppy has accurately predicted meal time for…well, every day of his life. No surprise there.
