description of the vehicle and the plate number. because of that information, police believe these guys may be responsible for even more robberies. >> the vehicle we know has been used in other robberies outsid of the city, just outside the city. and it also was possibly used in a robbery similar to this on tuesday in the 1800 block of chestnut street. >> we want to get you the description of that vehicle. police are looking for a silver mercedes with pennsylvania license plate of hva-3741. last seen going south on roosevelt boulevard. anyone with information should give philadelphia police a call. when i see you next hour, we'll tell you about a piece of evidence that one of the robbers left behind and what police are doing with that right now to try to track down those suspects. that's coming up at 6:30. reporting live in the northeast,
i'm pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. now to decision 2016. mike pence plans to be in bucks county today as scheduled. >> his scheduled appearance in bensalem comes hours after his campaign plane skidded off a runway in new york city. this is video of the jet after its rough landing tore up concrete and grass last night before stopping just 100 yards shy of the highway there. the emergency crews evacuated pence and dozens of passengers and crew on board. pence was okay. there were no reports of anyone injured. pence was arriving for a fund-raiser that would be later canceled. here's reaction from transportation officials. >> it was dark out there. there didn't appear to be any significant damage to the aircraft. >> there's no mechanical problems. the weather wasn't bad. there's no excuse he has for not making that landing. >> the ntsb is already investigating what happened after getting word of the incident, gop nominee donald trump told supporters in ohio
that his running mate was okay. vice president joe biden could be staying in the white house if hillary clinton wins the presidency. nbc news confirms and biden is on the clinton transition team's short list for secretary of state. biden began campaigning for clinton after deciding not to run against her in theç democratic primaries. a source familiar with the transition planning said, clinton's team is trying to figure out the best way to persuade biden to take the cabinet post if clinton wins the election. 5:37. we're only halfway through the nfl regular season. >> the game on sunday night will feel much bigger. >> because it's dallas. first place division on the line. csn's jillian mele joins us this morning. the birds are heading down to jerry's house. a huge matchup as we all know. >> vai, i know you are very well aware what it is like dallas
week. this is a thing that everybody is talking about. you have the 4-2 eagles taking on 59-1 cowboys. the interesting thing about this game, aside from first place being on the line which is huge, the fact that it's a battle of the rookie quarterbacks, no one would have thought at the beginning of the season this is what it would have turned into. take a look at video carson wentz who for the first time last week looked like a rookie. earlier this week, coach doug pederson said he had a lot of work to do, some of his mechanics, footwork, cleaning up some of those things we saw become a problem last week. hopefully that will be handled for this week. on the other side, it's dak prescott, the other rookie that everyone, not only locally but across the country talking about these two guys. prescott stepped up in a huge way for the cowboys for the injured tony romo. dak has thrown one interception so far. he has a good offensive line. that is key for the cowboys. our defense has to get pressure
on dak prescott this week like they did last week with sam bradford. our defense has to try to slow it down. i'm not going to say stop. try to slow down one of the cowboys' weapon at running back, ezekiel elliott. he has 703 rushing yards, ç293 after contact. which, vai, as you know, is so impressive and huge. trying to slow him down will be key. dez is back this week. a lot of different weapons the eagles will have to try and stop when it comes to dallas. on paper, vai, you know me. this is a really tough game. it shatters my heart to say that. listen, if the eagles can get things together, clean up some of the mechanics from carson wentz, if the receivers can have a good game, establish the run game, i think we have a chance and we'll break everything down for you on "breakfast on broad" at 7:00. >> we always have a chance because -- >> we're on the wentz wagon.
>> guess who leads the wentz wagon? my partner here. she has her t-shirt. she's ready to roll. >> anything is possible, jillian, have faith. >> nbc 10 is your official eagles station. we'll have exclusive coverage before and after the game. it all starts sunday morning at 9:30 with eagles game day kickoff. thank you so much. >> one thing i want to say, tracy, i've known you for a long, long, long time. when you're on the wentz wagon or any type of wagon, you don't get off of it. you are the number one supporter of carson wentz and the eagles in the world right now. >> you're right, jillian. >> she loves carson wentz. she does. >> big fan. nice to see you. this all starts sunday morning at 9:30 with eagles gameday kickoff. the game is followed immediately by our live postgame show. don't get off the wagon but do grab a nice jacket.

atlantic city expressway, the main side of the road that it's actually on. it's over into some of the center median, over into the right shoulder. right lane is blocked with one lane squeezing by. you can see right here. not a lot of traffic or backup approaching the scene. not a lot of cars typically are going that way around this time. it's early for that to jam up still. either way, traffic is moving slow by the scene. you might see some restrictions there approaching it. a little bit earlier they had part of the lanes, all of the lanes completely blocked off. this is the blue route around germantown pike on ramp. no big problems or delays in either direction. more updates when i'm back in ten. vai? next on "nbc 10 news today," settling up. we'll tell you just how much amtrak is paying after the crash that killed eight people in port richmond. plus, multiple brawls caught on camera at a high school in north jersey. we'll tell you how social media is playing a part in this.
