Sixers fill void of Eagles season ending and you can win tickets!
The Philadelphia Eagles season came to an abrupt end last weekend in Tampa. Despite their 2-5 start to the season, the Eagles made things interesting down the stretch by making the playoffs after winning seven of their final ten games this season. After going one and done in this year's playoffs, now the offseason begins. The Eagles front office will make their evaluations while media and fans will all speculate on what the 2022 Eagles will look like. One thing is for sure: the Eagles need to bring in better players and make draft picks that will have an immediate impact on next year's team.
In the meantime, the NFL playoffs continue this weekend with the divisional round of playoff games starting on Saturday, the Tennessee Titans host the Cincinnati Bengals at 4:30pm, and then the San Francisco 49ers travel to the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field to take on the Packers at 8:15pm. Sunday’s lineup has the Rams headed to Tampa Bay for a 3pm showdown with the Bucs and the Kansas City Chiefs host the Buffalo Bills Sunday evening at 6:30pm - You can hear ALL the game on 973 ESPN FM!
The Philadelphia 76ers are the only bright spot in the Philadelphia sports scene right now. Sixers All-Star center Joel Embiid is on fire; Embiid dropped 50 points on the Orlando Magic Wednesday night as the Sixers improved their record to 26-18, 2 games behind the Brooklyn Nets for first place heading into play on Friday Night. The Locker Room with Billy Schweim will be giving away a pair of Sixers tickets to a Lucky Listener to next Saturday’s game versus the Sacramento Kings and two 76ers Tee shirts!
