If I was to tell you that Vince Young would throw over 400 yards, the Eagles would jump out to an early 10-0 lead and Tom Brady would take a beating early on, would you have guessed that the Eagles would still lose by nearly three touchdowns? Well they did. The New England Patriots overcame a slow start and laid a season-killing beatdown to the Philadelphia Eagles 38-20. The Eagles have won just once at home this season.
The defense could do nothing to slow down Tom Brady and the Patriots' passing attack. Brady only threw to four different receivers, but two of them went for over 100 yards and all four had at least 59 yards. It almost looked too easy for Tom Brady.
Now the Eagles are at 4-7 and pretty much done. Sure a 9-7 finish would give them a shot at either the final wild-card spot or the NFC East division, but at this point does anyone actually believe this team could win more than two games in a row?
Eagles fans will start dealing with the lost season that was 2011 and start focusing on the 2012 NFL Draft next April.
