The Philadelphia Eagles playing the New York Jets at home was like an episode of “Man vs. Nature.” Man is smart, but you know what happens every time he truly encounters nature? A natural disaster.
That is exactly what happened yesterday. The Jets’ came flying in to The Linc with their man-made engines and wings hoping to improve their playoff chances. Unfortunately, for Jets fans the speed and power of Rex Ryan’s team was simply no match for what nature unleashed on the gridiron in South Philadelphia.
The Eagles with its natural wings spanning 90 inches soared high and controlled both sides of the ball. On defense, fumbles and interceptions led to 21 points putting Philadelphia up 28 – 0 in the second quarter. Like an American Bald Eagle, Michael Vick’s vision of the field was sharp. He made good decisions on passing and running the ball. He rushed and scored one touchdown by stretching into the end zone.
Man attempted a valiant attempt to come back, but after halftime it was over. There was nothing the Jets could do to stop the Eagles. They kept the Jets offense off of the field and ran up the score. At the end it was all nature and the Eagles wiped out the Jets 45 – 19. Yes, a natural disaster.
