baby! mom! i love that we're spending the weekend together. oh i know! hey, why don't you turn off your phone and all your stuff. good idea. it's off. mom? oh my internet is so slow when anyone else is using it. did you like want to do something? i am doing something. leave slow downloads behind. it's good to be back. the 100% fiber optics network gives you the fastest internet available for all your devices. get out of the past. get fios.
sports. you have to ask the the question does anybody want the nfc east. >> hopefully eagles to. today sitting home eating that left over halloween candy, they are sitting pretty thanks to a few friend in the division. let's face it, eagles have dropped the ball to start the season but when they kick off again next sunday night in dallas after the bye week the eagles could be playing for first place, that is because they get a lot of help today. dez bryant returns to the cowboys but since tony romo's collar bound has been broke he is still out. today boys get in a fight after this hit on richardo watkins. both teams had to be cooled off. watkins is okay. eagles fans will be okay too. seahawks down two. final minutes, russell wilson gets the first down. plays later it sets up this
the game winning field goal, 66 seconds left. dallas loses their fifth straight 13-12 the final. they have failed to score a touchdown today. how about first place giants in the shoot-out with the saints, drew brees and eli manning combined for nfl record three touchdown passes. manning throws a career high six, half to odell beckham. wow, how about brees, he tied the nfl record with seven, including this. thirty-six seconds left down one. bj stiller ties it at 49. saints then get the ball back and they win it. tom could have lynn will be bad. no time left. 50-yard, game winning field goal. saint win 52-49. that is 101 points for these two, third most all time in a game. so both the giant and cowboys lose, and the eagles are right there. nine games to go, only two are against teams with the winning record. so i asked eagles linebacker brandon graham tonight the if the eagles caught a big time
break. >> i think we did catch a break but we do need to consistently get these w's because they can keep losing all will they want but if we keep losing, it is just as bad. you know, there is in advantage. with us we just need to make sure we get some wins in a row. >> more with brandon graham, he will join us live in the studio tonight on "action news" sports sunday coming up in just a few minutes. espn analyst ron jaworski skill believes the bird are a playoff team, assuming they can clean up all those mistakes, the the drops, the the offensive line and, of course, the the quarterback. >> there has been a revolving door down at the novacare center. the it will take sometime for this all to come together. if it comes together at all. there is no guarantee that this will work. eagles are three inn and four and they are playing like a three an four football team. chip kelly has a week this coaching staff has a week to study themselves and i think there will be discernible changes offensively and defensively when eagles come
back after the bye week. >> well, who says this is not a college football town? temple/notre dame game was highest rated regular season college football game ever on channel six. speaking of ratings, temple slipped to 23rd in both poles. it is first time in temple history they are in the top 25, three weeks in a row. but everyone still bummed they lost to notre dame. defense is one of the best in the the country and could not hold the lead late in the fourth. the owls, they need a short term memory here next up smu on friday. ducis rodgers catches up with matt rule today. >> you think they learned something about themselves in the process. >> i think they believe in themselves but until you are in that moment, national tv, game day is there, playing a great team like notre dame until you are there it is hard to really know. they learned if they can play at that level and they should have won the game. >> baseball now, kansas city
royals just a win a wye from their first world series title in 30 years. down to the final out in the ninth, royals scored two to tie it and that is where we are stand. we are tied at two in the tenth. we will see what happens. sixers no where near a title, they appear to be in for another long rebuilding year after another zero and two start. sixers host lebron james and cleveland cavilers tomorrow. sixers forward robert covington is probable for the game. he has yet to play because of the sprained right knee. >> i think any team you can have another legitimate scoring option, and really at times our best scoring option, you know, it helps so we have to be smart and have him back and we will be a a big boost especially for our offense. >> and sixers need all of the help they can get especially against eastern conference champs lebron and kevin love is tough. >> thank you. more "action news" when we come right back.
