Did the announcer really just say at this stage of the game down 14, 8 at the time of the play that the book says go for it? These announcers blow! With a fg your down by a touchdown with 3 minutes Left in the third. C’mon man!

Ya, that made no sense. That doesn't reduce the number of times you have to score, and just means you have to go for it again if you don't get it. The ESPN crew is absolute garbage.

Eagles pass interfered themselves by tipping it. That was intended for white side and tipped so no pass interference

Booger: “when it is cold outside, as a player you think ‘i don’t need to drink to stay hydrated’, but in reality you need to drink more because your body sweats the same”.

Wait, what? Where did the MORE come in? I feel like this is 5 year old logic in the body of an NFL play by play announcer.

Well they would have to go for 2 again, but risk missing that one too. The whole point of going for 2 is to reduce the number of possessions it takes to tie the game, but being down 14 is a 2 possession game whether you go for 2 or not, so they would gain no advantage and risk putting themselves in a bigger hole.

He's so terrible. How can they not find someone better? I love football, but I kind of dread MNF because the entire crew is so terrible.

Right! And if “your into analytics” like he said about it your odds are actually lower. 😆

It’s like listening to to stupid pre recorded madden video game sayings that don’t match up with the play even!

Why wouldn't Eli audible out of a flea flicker against a sticks Defense? Why even call that on 3rd and 14 to begin with?

BTW, the Eagles WR corps had another egregious drop that would have been a TD. Big surprise.

The book says to go for two when you are down by 8. The EV of going for two is > than kicking the PAT. I thought this forum would know that? The announcers were totally right. You have a better chance of winning the game going for two down 8 than kicking the PAT to take it to 7.
