The Eagles are a great number, where every of its team shows a good performance setting a winning record but Philadelphia somehow finds its place in the last place. Having stumbled on a 0-3 record in the division, this makes the blame be themselves.

After the game
The first quarter of the match ended up in a tight draw of 7-7, Packers against Eagles although by halftime the Packers managed to go ahead of the Eagles by 14-10 being the score. The second half was a competitive time where the third quarter ended at 17-13, the teams showing their strength. Though the Packers became more aggressive in the game and they show more attacks managing to beat the Eagles by 27-13 at the end of the game. This was a positive result for the team but a disappointment for the Eagles.
In the second quarter, Jordan Matthews left the game suffering a severe ankle injury. DeShawnShead, Seahawks’ cornerback, suffered a hamstring injury. Jason Peters, Eagles. Left tackle was taken out to get X-rays on his left forearm, but he later returned to the game. C.J. Prosise left with a shoulder injury, making his return to be so questionable. Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles were both ruled out of the rest of the game.

Steven Hauschka managed to join a very historical moment. He missed an extra point kick, something that had been done by kickers 11 times during the week which is a new record.
A real magic touchdown pass from Rodgers to Davante Adams was recorded.

Buffalo Bills vs Seattle Seahawks 2016 Review & Highlights

Buffalo bills vs Seattle seahawks highlight week 9 2016

The Monday night clash saw Seattle Seahawks (5-2-1) beat Buffalo Bills (4-5), a match that was held at the at CenturyLink Field. This helped Seahawk move up to number 2 in the NFC spot, with the 31-25 win. Seahawks’ attacks were mainly by Jimmy Graham and Russell Wilson. This might have been statistically the most dominant game that Jimmy Graham played since he became a Seahawk, evidence that Seahawks have learn to trust him. He indeed made the difference in the performance that his team showed, with receiver Paul Richardson saying, “Jimmy is a human highlight reel…I believe when the ball is even in his direction, he’s bound to make something special happen.” Kam Chancellor and MichealBennet, on the other hand, were the most inactive players on the Seahawks’ side.

Christine Micheal performed a 2-yard TD run that saw the Bills take an early lead.

The game was a comeback for quarterback Rusell Wilson, who had been hampered by injuries all year long, but his game was like his old self. Running back C.J. Prosise commented on this saying that it was evident that  there was a little difference in that game, which was in their offense, adding that “We’re really excited in what’s coming forward.” Some game analysts had however claimed that Wilson would be the weakness that Bills would use to defeat Seahawks.

Controversy on this week’s game came with Bills’ field goal attempt. This was after jumping offside by Richard Sherman. Since the referee failed to blow the whistle, Sherman continued, touching the ball and roughing Dan Carpenter. Sherman was however not penalized for this, to the anger of Bills’ head coach Rex Ryan. Commenting after the game, Sherman defended himself telling ESPN’s Lisa Salters that since the whistle was not blown, he played on until it was blown. He added that he went straight after the ball, not Carpenter. He added that once the ball is tipped while paling, the rule that applies is that there is no flag.

After the game, Coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that this was not the performance that everyone expected from them, implying the  injuries of Russell Wilson, Thomas Rawls, Kam Chancellor and Michael Bennett had affected the quality of their play. This, he added, had carried on for the past 8 weeks, as it was evidenced by the struggling running game all along, and the continuous presence of defense in the field. However, even with the bending of the defense, it did not break.

The two teams had met 12 times before this game, and Seattle held an advantage of beating Bills 7-5, and the odds were to the advantage of Seattle, which still won.
