Next up, the Eagles travel to Foxboro to face the 10-1 Patriots.
What's been funny, this week, on NFL Network and SportsCenter, is to listen to the talking heads point out that Gronk is out, as are Dont'a Hightower and Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman and, adding insult to, uh, injury, linebacker Jamie Collins has some "unspecified illness". So apparently this will actually be, you know, a game.
The Pats could replace half their players with *fans*, *fans* who are *kids*, and they'd still kill the Eagles.
60 points are not impossible.
Chef Spouse and I will be decorating the tree and partaking liberally of the nog on Sunday afternoon. I figure it will provide a pleasant distraction. We may even turn off the sound in favor of the A Charlie Brown Christmas album if things get REALLY dire.
Do I even need to type this?
Patriots (who at least are no longer undefeated, and congratulations to the Broncos - the entire NFL-viewing nation outside of a 100 mile radius around Boston thanks you)
