Wish you all a happy spooky season with a pumpkin emoji in your social media name. May your outfit get all the likes, love, eye emojis and eventually get noticed by that person.
I’ve always been a Christmas guy over. The whole family gets together, I get to listen to classical songs that I never play at other times of the year, and there’s sports. NBA on Christmas Day has been one of my Christmas traditions since Steve Kerr was still playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
For me, with Christmas falling on a Sunday, NFL games are like an intrusion. Goodell, keep your shoulder pads and challengers away from me on December 25. It’s a day I’m happy to spend part of my day watching the New York Knicks play.
Christmas Eve, however, I’m ready for some football this year.
Have a dandy Week 16 on a Saturday afternoon. Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles Part II, this time hopefully with Dak Prescott.
The two teams played last night, and with the Eagles undefeated and the Cowboys losing just one game, this Sunday Night Football League game of Week 6 looks like a contender’s early game for NBC. And with the Philadelphia crowd rioting after the Phillies brought their bats to the Atlanta Braves’ title defense at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday, it’s sure to be a spooky season night to match. with “Dreams and Nightmares”.
What a nightmare for the Cowboys at first, losing 20-0. Backup Cooper Rush threw two of his three interceptions in the first half, and the Eagles softened the Cowboys defense as if it were an attack from a HEB. The Eagles separated themselves from the rest of the tournament in front of a bubbling crowd, for what time could be the highest-ranked game regularly during the year.
For a while, it seemed the only positive thing about this night for the Cowboys was that the Rush experience would end after Week 6, but the defense picked up the cards late in the first half and forced the Eagles to concede two goals. . Then someone must have clicked Dorrough’s “Get Big” at halftime, because Cowboys tackle the Eagles to start the second half.
Ezekiel Elliot, Tony Pollard, it doesn’t matter who has the ball, these wins are all significant. Zeke even looked nimble again when he hit such a long finish for that 14-yard touchdown. On defense, this Cowboys The unit that had dominated the season surrounded Jalen Hurts, limiting his effectiveness.
Suddenly we have 20-17 games in the fourth quarter, until the Eagles finally score again and Rush throws his final choice of the game on the next drive. Play big on both sides of the ball, divide opponents, defend fast and get fit, oh let’s run this again.
For those of you who got permission from your parents to open a gift on Christmas Eve, we’re all getting that experience later this year. If you have a family party that day, start in the afternoon or wait until evening.
While the Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors should bring bad blood is always appreciated on Christmas Day, the weekend game is Cowboys Eagles II.
Prepare your eggs ready.
