NFL.com: Eagles Part of NFL’s Top 20 games in 2015
While the Eagles had a rough season filled with drama, there was at least one bright spot - at least NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison thinks so.
As he wrote the Eagles - Patriots game was one of the top 20 games of the 2015 season.
The Eagles appearance on the list was at No. 10, as they went on the road and defeated the New England Patriots, a coming out party for Sam Bradford, and big plays by the defense and special teams making for a very entertaining game.
Explaining the choice, Harrison pointed out three return touchdowns for the 4-7 Eagles against the 10-1 Patriots.
When the 4-7 Eagles traveled to Gillette Stadium to face the 10-1 Patriots, everyone expected a blowout victory for Tom Brady and company. However, the Eagles had different plans, and shattered expectations in a 35-28 victory over the Patriots on the back of three return touchdowns (one blocked punt, one pick six, one punt return).
