After a miserable 2015 for Philly sports, 2016 at least had some positive vibes with the Flyers making the playoffs, the Phillies taking a small step forward, the Eagles look like they might have found their franchise quarterback and the Sixers might have landed not one, but two franchise players.
According to a tweet from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter this news was filed to ESPN: The Buffalo Bills have notified linebacker Kiko Alonso, who played for Chip Kelly at Oregon, that he is going to be traded to Philadelphia for running back LeSean McCoy.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers passed for 341 yards and three touchdowns, Julius Peppers returned his second interception of the season for a score, and the Green Bay Packers defense stuffed the high-octane Philadelphia Eagles for a 53-20 rout Sunday.
PHILADELPHIA -- Darren Sproles had two touchdowns, Mark Sanchez threw for two scores and the defense sacked Cam Newton nine times to help the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers 45-21 Monday night.
During football season, Sundays are all about... football! Hey, I've got nothin' against football. In fact, I used to watch the Eagles every single week. But then I got away from it, simply because I got busy doin' other things.
