Eagles Disaster in Dallas Overshadows Phillies Failures
The Philadelphia Eagles returned from their Monday Night Football game in Dallas with more questions than answers. The embarrassing loss to the Cowboys was hard to stomach and has been the topic of conversation all week on sports talk radio and social media. The Eagles did the Phillies a favor by playing undisciplined football and losing on the big stage on primetime by a 41-21 score that doesn’t indicate how bad the Eagles looked or played for most of that game.
With the Phillies now losing four straight games, they have quietly faded out of the NL East race and their playoff hopes have been crushed. The Phillies were swept by the Braves in Atlanta this week which handed the NL East Title to the Braves. The Phillies September record of 13-14 wasn’t good enough to launch them into the playoffs for the first time in a decade. Their mediocre play was never going to change and the Phillies put together a streak of wins only to duplicate it with the same amount of losses each time. In the end the Phillies will miss the playoffs and the Eagles lick their wounds from an embarrassing loss while the Ben Simmons saga has garnered a lot of the Philadelphia Sports fans ire and is a hot topic. This weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim we will discuss it all!
