Wilmington photographer Kyle Grantham has a great post at PetaPixel about all those great photos in the snow from Sunday’s Eagles’ win over the Lions. Taking pictures in bad weather, it turns out, is very hard to do.
A Lions fan says he was beaten unconscious by Eagles fans after Sunday’s game. “The Lions fans, who is a resident of Philadelphia and chose to not be identified, claims that a group of Eagles fans began to harass him by throwing snow balls at him after the game ended. After trying to ignore it, however, the fans reportedly crossed over Pattison avenue and approached him– which is when things allegedly got physical.” Read more »
With only 14 shopping days left until Christmas, my days are packed with attending joyous holiday parties. Last night I attended the DeMeco Ryans Foundation and The Honigman Group’s annual Holiday Happy Hour at Opa restaurant (1311 Sansom Street) benefiting The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Yesterday’s Snow Bowl seemed legendary in the moment, but here are five games that give it a serious run for its money.
It was a game that Eagles fans will remember for years to come. The surprise blizzard caught everyone off-guard and led to one of the most memorable football games of all time. The Eagles found their footing in the second half and roared past the Lions by a final score of 34 to 20. Birds 24/7 has full coverage of the game including quotes from players and coaches on the experience.
Here are some of our favorite shots from the game:
DeSean Jackson celebrated his 27th birthday on Sunday by notching his first 1,000-yard receiving season since 2010 in the Eagles’ 24-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Then he hit the town to celebrate with his mom, his friends, some crazy birthday cakes… and Ashanti. Check the photos from his and his friends’ Instagrams.

It’s tempting to look at the various missteps taken by the Eagles in Sunday’s highly imperfect win over Arizona and worry that their recent prosperity could be in jeopardy. Doing that would be a mistake. It’s true that almost giving away a 24-7 lead and needing a couple generous calls by the officials to maintain order are not the best ways to continue an assault on the post-season. But the end result, a three-point victory that maintained a tie with Dallas atop the NFC Island of Misfit Toys Division, is all that matters.
At this time of year, there is no need to earn style points. It’s about winning. Just ask Chicago, which dropped an overtime decision to Minnesota and hurt its NFC North title chances, about that. Or New England, which won’t care one bit that it snuck past lowly Houston to maintain a grip on the second AFC playoff seed. After Sunday’s triumph over Arizona, the Eagles are now 7-5, and that’s what counts.
