I didn't watch the end, but apparently they benched Jalen Hurts in the 4th quarter, and the new QB immediately had a couple turnovers. Then rather than go for a game tying FG late in the 4th, they went for it and didn't get it. Would make sense to give them a better draft pick, and potentially screw over their main division rivals at the same time.

Hurts was 7/20 with a INT. I didn’t watch it, but that benching seems totally justified. And not going for the tying FG...maybe they wanted to try to win instead of go to OT? I’m just kinda playing devils advocate, I don’t actually care if they did lose on purpose. But a 4 win team playing shitty and then maybe playing to win instead of go to OT in the final game of the year doesn’t really scream “they threw the game” to me. But again, I didn’t watch it. Like you said, sounds like sour grapes from a shitty NYG team that maybe should’ve won more than 6 games.

It was the 3rd quarter when the eagles decided to go for it instead of kicking the FG to tie. Not late in the 4th. May have been the right call because if they get the TD there, maybe they win 21-20. If they kick the FG they lose 20-17. I know there are a lot of variables there that change if they kick instead of go for it but still.

And we beat Philly for 3 quarters with Hurts in the game. People act like they were winning and then benched Hurts.

^^ he wasn’t having a good game but wasn’t playing bad enough to be benched, especially considering who they benched him for

The last half of the Eagles-WFT game last night was an abomination to the game of football. Forget Tulsa-Mississippi State, last night's game was worse.

Both teams just threw pick after pick and had turnover after turnover, sloppy playing, neither could get a drive together

I'm pretty sure it was the 4th quarter when they went for it on 4th down instead of kicking a the tying FG. Hurts was still in the game. Sudfeld came in on the next drive.

It was obvious that the eagles had no intention of winning at that point. But o don't care that they did it. There's honestly no reason to risk injury to your potential franchise qb in a meaningless game. This is no different than playoff teams resting players. At all. It was in the best interest of the eagles to lose. They get a better draft pick while at the same time prevent a division rival (WFT) with no long term QB from getting a high draft pick in order to draft a QB in a draft which will probably have ~5 first round QBs

Ah ok. Either way it was painfully obvious they were not trying to win, even before they pulled hurts.

Buccaneers is like Heat of NBA last season. With Tom Brady they can do anything. Could win the Super Bowl Championship.

Much bigger figure than Butler, pretty much like Lebron.

Chiefs deserved the win for being aggressive

Browns deserved to lose for not being aggressive

For Panthers fans, I think this game comes down to does your hatred of NFC South rival, Saints, outweigh your hatred of Super Bowl XXXVIII MVP/6X champion/likely cheater, Tom Brady?

yeah, basically I dislike Brady more than I dislike Brees. I won't lose any sleep either way.

Bucs > Saints but Brees > Brady for me

Which means I don’t really have a strong rooting interest at all.

Advocare is worse than the TB12 system, so the lesser of two evils won.

NFL really needs to change the stupid fumble into the end zone = touchback rule. Makes absolutely no sense.

in theory, i'm ok with the idea of encouraging ball security near the goalline and discouraging recklessness with the ball at the goalline. that said, i do think the rule is too punitive
