11:53 pm
credit is due on defensive side. defensive coordinator without robert ayers and jpp, our playing against leading rushing team in the national football league. we held them to what, 26 yards rushing until that last play. alfred morris was 19 yards, that was your pick. talking about matt jones rookie only 38 yards. that defense did great job took them. >> offensive ly a clean pocket for eli manning. a clean sheet for the offensive line. >> no sacks on eli manning. his offensive line they juggle some guys. left tackle ereck flowers is out. move guys around to get the job done. washington redskins got after the st. louis rams and miami dolphins. eli was -- he was clean. offensive line did great job. >> did he. talked how eli stepped up on the

11:55 pm
they made so many mistakes they much sloppy, didn't look motivated, you have to be ready to go. we thought they would just by listening to them and talking about it. that was the big thing. jim, they run the football. but this league no matter who you are running the football there's going to be three or four games you have to win by throwing it. they had those chances. kurt warner was talking about them, i thought he missed three or four throws that were really important in the first half. that could have changed the team around. >> jim: next week, baltimore at pittsburgh of course ravens have their home opener sunday coming home at 0-2 going against cincinnati team. they got another divisional game coming up next thursday against the steelers who will have lavian bell in the lynn up to take on st. louis. always intense battle. >> phil: it is. of course, i'm excited to go watch that offense for pittsburgh steelers, just what they do and how wide open. we're going for two points all the time. that's going to be fun.

12:19 am
again. getting prepped for major weekend here in philadelphia. parkway looking good all lit up tonight. no problems out there on logan circle for now and the weather is quiet and you know it will be pretty quiet through the weekend as well. we're thinking about it earlier today and even on day like today when it's warm and it's sunny a lot of people doing that long walk some people walking miles it gets a little hot, overwhelming in the sun sheen so the cloud cover will actually help it will keep us cooler and calm through the weekend. let's take look at storm scan3. no problems out there. a few clouds starting to drift in and those clouds will thicken as we get into the day tomorrow. all thanks to this storm. looking at it all day long the center of the low just off the coast of south carl. spinning a lot of moisture back into the deep south and this will make a slow progression to the north as we go through the next couple of days and eventually reach us by sunday. so your temperatures right now across the region not quite as cool as last night but we're seeing low 60s in doylestown and bensalem also in millville, new castle at 65 degrees right now. future weather this is our latest run of our in house model
12:20 am
called the rpm model. what it's going to show you this is one of our drier solutions. so this is not gospel here but this is what could happen on a good scenario the storm lifts to the north watch what happens saturday afternoon a few clouds increase but the rain on this particular model misses us to the south and even sunday a few showers try to creep in few more clouds but the worst of it stays to the south. with high pressure to the north and that low, we are going to get a strong gusty wind will set up you can definitely bet on it being a breezy weekend of the ooh even tomorrow evening winds gusting over 20 miles an hour in the city. saturday in the afternoon winds 22 miles an hour at 2:00 p.m. over 30 miles per hour down the shore. so it does turn a bit windy through the weekend. a look at our comparison two different mode models as far asw much rain could fall through monday evening. much of this could be shifted into the overnight hours sunday night. the gfs with a half inch of rain european model lower. less than .2. and the good news even on wettest scenario which is the gfs the one i was talking about that just came out the latest
12:21 am
run it looks very very similar to earlier runs where the rain does start to creep in but it's mostly after the pope is wheels up and out of here sunday evening. so by 7:00 o'clock sunday even our wettest solution only less than a tenth of an inch here of rain in philadelphia. that's good news. the rain comes in steadier through the overnight hours. so as of right now, it does not look like it's going to be a big deal for us as far as rain is concerned. let's break it down as far as the events are concerned. saturday 10:30 a.m. celebration of mass clouds and some breaks of sun in the bad at all. 68 degrees. 7:00 p.m. for the festival of families looks good as well on sunday 9:30 it's just cloudy and breezy. a bit cool at 67. 4:00 p.m. that's when we've got to watch for a few showers or light rain creeping in but again the further we get tour the weekend the door it looks the chance for rain creeping in especially at that time. bring the rain gear but definitely doesn't look like it's going to be instead steady driving rain through the mass. few clouds comfortable, 60 for your friday sunshine early in the day and then those clouds will thicken through the afternoon and your "eyewitness
12:22 am
weather" seven day forecast, well, notice it's cooler and cloudy through the weekend but it's comfortable. we've got that gusty breeze, temperatures in the low 70s. then next week right back to the weather we had today near 80 monday and back to pat 80 by tuesday. eat side of this weekend looks great. just the weekend that's a problem. we'll figure a way out though. >> we will. kate thanks. >> time for your thursday/friday morning sports. >> yeah, right. that time of night. demarco murray status for sunday is uncertain but his start to the season is historic. historically bad. quite a long time since the nfl has seen something like this. we'll break it all down next in sports.

12:26 am
a subaru. >> the season is two weeks old. you've seen the bad and the ugly but this sunday we could see the good. why, because the eagles have never lost to the jets in the regular season. nine and zero mark the most wins by a team that is undefeated against a single opponent in the nfl. demarco murray has had miserable start. unfair to call him out specifically because the offensive line play assure huge role in his success or lack thereof but the numbers alarming he's the first reigning rushing champion to have 11 yards or fewer in his first two games since doug russell in 1936. i know you guys remember that. let's look at some other things that happened that year. franklin d. roosevelt was leck to do his second term he went on to serve two more. whoever dam opened. jesse owe once won four gold medals at the olympic in berlin and ppa would be proud. in 1936, the first parking meter was invented hash tag parking

pope. the pope is the leader of the catholic church and the head of state for vatican city. it is my favorite autonomous enclave within a major city, right after the dallas airport chilis 2. his holiness is known by pain names, il papa, bishop of rome, vicar of christ, supreme pontiff and on world of warcraft, athrog the death hammer. (laughter) the papacy itself got its start 2,000 years ago when jesus told his apostle who was then called simon, quote, simon bar jonah, thoughu art pet are and upon this rock i will build my church, and that is how the apostle simon became peter "the rock" have son. because peter was hired by jesus himself. each of his successors has a direct link to god. it's one of the pain benefits to being a pope along with comprehensive dental and infallibility which is only when the pope
12:43 am
is speaking ex cathedra or from the seat of st. peter, but if are you just hanging out casually and the pope says the godfather iii is a worthy conclusion to the triology, feel free to call bull. and while this pope seems like a pretty solid dude, the popes of the past have been a bit of a mixed bag. there were the three popes of avignon, the borgias who loved their orgies, the pitt call female pope joan and the brief but hilarious reign of pope ralph. skipping ahead, skipping ahead to the -- century one of the most transform difficult popes was pope john 23 shown here in the with the cape with da fur. john the 23rd eversaw the dramatic reforms of the 2nd vatican council or as it is more kponly known vatican 2 the fast and the an city

national. john the 23rd is the role model of pope francis who as we taped it is touching down at new york's kennedy airport, assuming he made it through security. the flowing robe and religious head gear are tsa bail. of course tomorrow is the big event, a mass at madison square garden. it's going to be unforgetable when his holiness dunks off a trampoline. he could be-- he could be the first pope ever to pull off a 3 of 0 tomahawk baptism-- but shebang. but his holiness started his day in our nation's capitol where he became the first pontiff to address a joint session of congress. >> the people of israel. >> stephen: i have to clear suping really quickly,
12:45 am
catholics do not speak in tongues. that was just his accent. and while there were things the pope said today that both sides of the aisle approved or disapproved of, there was one moment that brought the whole congress together. >> let us remember the golden rule. do unto others as you-- (applause) >> stephen: whooo! who! yeah! do unto others, yeah! -- i'm sure that's the enof the saying. moving on! something congress can live by. and after the speech, he had lunch with the homeless instead of the leaders of congress, possibly cuz he wanted to eat with people who were less likely to beg him for donations. and-- (cheers and applause)
12:46 am
folks, i think that is so refreshing. even though pope francis is a huge celebrity now, he's staying true to his humble nature. he is eschewing any kblits glilingts and glamor not coming on the tv shows, but i want you to know the door is always open, and should the mood strike you i'm ready for you here in the ed sullivan. i still have, i still have, i still have the humble-- the popechair. (applause) you will not find a humbleer popechair. and if you can't make it, i understand, you're a busy guy. but i want you to know i'm going to be pretty mad if i see you getting day drunk with hoda and kathy lee. stick around. we have a celebrity pope panel you're not going to want to miss.

12:51 am
return you now to tonight's special pope-isode already in progress. longer than i thought. welcome, frank. now in addition to his vast humility one of the reasons the pope is so popular is he decried the rise of what is called a throw away culture, that compares the excesses of capital imto the dung of the devil. and do not underestimate the devil's dung. the only food they have in hell is doority owes loco crunch wrap. it's an inspiring message of shunning material possessions which americans can now honor by buying crap. >> the official papal visit merchandise store is now open here in the lobby of the aramark tower. prices range from $5 for a pope medallion do $70 for the pullovers, and crystal
