Nick Foles decides its time to move on from the Eagles. Where does he go?

Always a bridesmaid, never the bride.

Even after being named MVP of a Super Bowl LII, even after saving the Eagles 2018 season and taking them to the playoffs, Philadelphia continued to tell quarterback Nick Foles he just wasn’t good enough. QB Carson Wentz, who has been injured the last two seasons, will be their starter. Foles decided that it was time to move on, and he paid $2 million to do it.

The Eagles had picked up Foles $20 million option, but that would mean he would continue to carry a clipboard for Wentz. Foles paid the fee to be released from that option, but Philadelphia still has the ability to franchise tag him. This would give the team the ability to trade him. It has been reported that multiple teams are interested in bringing Foles on board. This isn’t surprising considering the state of the quarterback situation in the NFL.

Thank you Chiefs

Whether you were freezing in the stands at Arrowhead Stadium or sitting at home, fans across the country were watching arguably the best game of the season. 

Everyone was anxiously waiting to see if the Kansas City Chiefs could stamp their ticket to Super Bowl LIII.

Unfortunately, fans saw their dreams of a trip to Atlanta this year dashed during the last few seconds of a nerve-racking, heartbreaking 37-31 overtime loss to the New England Patriots.

Pro Bowl Day 2: Let the Flag Football Championships begin

Dayna O’Gorman,
Senior Sports Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

What started out as a rainy, windy day in Orlando, ended with perfect temperatures, hot dance moves, and a whole lot of fun.

The NFC practice had to be moved indoors due to the weather. With that change, it allowed the NFC practice and the AFC practice to be held at different times, which allowed fans to be able to watch both conferences. Today I attended the AFC practice.

Quarterbacks Andrew Luck (Indianapolis), DeShaun Watson (Houston), and Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City) took turns running plays with the team while head coach Anthony Lynn watched from a distance, letting coaches Gus Bradley and others take over.

The QBs ran a few running plays, but when they switched to passing plays, it seemed to turn into a game of keep away. The defense made their presence known by grabbing interceptions and blocking passes. Let’s just say, it was a good thing there weren’t any officials on the field. It was all in good fun and the players loved it.

Patriots head back to familiar territory

Sonja Greenfield; Patriots Contributor

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

New England 37 – Kansas City 31 (OT)

Guess who’s back. Back again. The Pats are back, tell a friend.

The New England Patriots are heading back to the Super Bowl.  Quarterback Tom Brady ,and the rest of the Patriots, executed Brady’s 57th game-winning drive to get the victory over the Chiefs.

After going 3 for 3 on third down during the overtime drive, the Patriots handed the ball off to running back Rex Burkhead who ran it in for the game-winning touchdown.

The game played out the best way possible for the Patriots. It was obvious that the best way to keep Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and the great Kansas City offense under control was to simply keep them off the field. It was the same strategy that most teams have tried to use to beat the Patriots for years.

Colts vs Chiefs is anyone’s game

Julie Voigt, Indianapolis Colts Reporter

By Julie Voigt //@JulieNoted_PFG

It was the second largest comeback in NFL history. 

Back in January 2014, the Indianapolis Colts recorded a major AFC Divisional win in Indianapolis against the Chiefs. A team that was trailing by 28 points early in the third quarter,  with a little “Luck”, the Colts claimed victory by a final score of 45-44 and a ticket to the AFC Championship in New England.

This season, these two teams are completely different. Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes is leading the AFC’s number one seed to the divisional round after a well-deserved bye week.  This has been their first number one finish since 1995. Andy Reid’s team finished the season 12-4 and 7-1 at home. The Chiefs also have the best offense in the league. With that being said, they also have one of the worse defensive lines.

How the Chargers can beat the Ravens

Cindy Davis LA Chargers Reporter

By Cindy Davis // @XO_CindyDavis

 

The Chargers may have lost to the Ravens week 16 of the regular season, but they are looking for revenge in an exciting wildcard matchup Sunday.

The Ravens defeated the Chargers 22-10 in their first meeting and appeared to dominate them, but the Chargers actually had a chance to win the game. The Chargers got the ball with 3:10 left on the clock and had great field position. The score was 16-10 Ravens.

Unfortunately, the usually reliable tight end Antonio Gates fumbled with 2:48 on the clock and the Ravens ran it back 62 yards to the end zone, making the score 22-10 and sealing the Chargers fate. Their first matchup was in L.A. but this time, the Chargers must travel to Baltimore to play in a hostile environment faced with a 3 hour east coast time difference.

While that may seem daunting to many teams, the Chargers are 7-1 on the road this season. This may be quarterback Philip Rivers last chance to win a Super Bowl before he retires. So how can the Chargers go into Baltimore and come out with a win? Continue reading “How the Chargers can beat the Ravens”

Seahawks win over Chiefs prove Carroll’s philosophy still works

Seattle Seahawks Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

Chiefs 31 – Seahawks 38

For the Seattle Seahawks, last nights win against the Kansas City Chiefs was about more than getting a 17-2 record in prime time games. Even about more than clinching a playoff spot. This was a game about proving that the last few years weren’t a fluke. This game and this season has been about showing the NFL that the system, the Pete Carroll philosophy, still works.

I’ll admit it. Anyone who follows me on Twitter already knows. I didn’t watch this game live. Couldn’t watch this game live. December football stresses me out too much so I often have to watch games the next morning to save my sanity and my blood pressure. After watching the game this morning I can tell you, I’ve seen this team before. I’ve seen this energy before. And although wide receiver Doug Baldwin won’t say it, I will. It feels like 2012 all over again.

Browns 17 – Broncos 16

It wasn’t pretty by any means, but for the first time since 1990, the Cleveland Browns beat the Denver Broncos in Mile High Stadium.

Rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield is everything fans have waited for these long, lonely years. While many questioned General Manager John Dorsey’s pick of Mayfield in the 2018 NFL Draft, week after week he is proving why he was the right choice.

By Araceli Villanueva //@Aracelv1

‘Tis the season and KC Chiefs’ safety Eric Berry is in the Christmas spirit. The spirit of giving that is.

The Eric Berry Foundation kicked off their third annual Stock the Shoppe Gift Card and Toy Drive campaign at Nick and Jakes in Overland Park, KS. This is the first of four events being held in the metro area, and it was a success.

The mission of the campaign is to collect toys and raise funds for the Snowflake Shoppe at Children’s Mercy Kansas City which allows parents and caregivers to select gifts for children in the hospital, and their family members, at no cost, all without leaving the building.

LA Rams come out on top in epic battle with the Kansas City Chiefs

LA Rams 54 – Kansas City Chiefs 51

White rally towels flickered throughout the stadium reading “LA Together,” as the LA Rams dedicated Monday night’s game to first responders and those affected by the California wildfires and the mass shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks.

Members of the Cal Lutheran University choir sang the national anthem as first responders and their families carried an American flag that stretched the length of the field before the start of the Rams’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Players and coaches from both teams wore dark gray hats with logos of Los Angeles-area firefighter and law enforcement agencies.

From start to finish, this was a playoff caliber game. Billed as the “Game of the Year,” this matchup somehow managed to exceed expectations.
