7:15 am
philadelphia it is already starting to warm up. little bit to the north of us we're below freezing in allentown. still below freezing in lancaster. thirty-nine in wilmington. forty-six in millville, new jersey and 48 in wildwood. we had a week went this average high around 43, 44 degrees, and a weekend that was, a actually saw temperature below average on saturday and then right where we are supposed to be on sunday with a high of 43, pope eighthly cold as we have been saying but now we are warming up. fifty-five today. sixty tomorrow. sixty-four on wednesday. 71 degrees on thursday. we could see a few then are storms and a mix of sun and cloud on christmas day with a high of 64 degrees. the that is not too christmasy but we will take it. that is your seven day forecast, we are taking a look at traffic now and we have a look from sky fox, route 72 wood land burlington county a horrific crash here and a lot of responders on the scene there. don't have too many details about exactly what happened
7:16 am
here but it looks like two vans collided and just horrible wreckage as a result. so, obviously the accident, the clean up will continue there but this is route 72, burlington county, new jersey. stay away from that area if at all possible. we will go to the roosevelt boulevard picking up a little but no major delays when a all that volume. go tout route 422 westbound at trooper road, also cleared, moving along just fine for now and travel times, to go on the schuylkill for blue route to the vine 21 minute trip on i-95 on woodhaven road to the vine, 18 minutes and in new jersey on 55, on 322 to the route 42 freeway is a 13 minute trip alex and chris. thanks, sue. 7:16. this is a tough loss. cardinals beat up on the bird four-17. the good news is, we're still in it. we still control our own fate
7:17 am
with two games left, and mr. sean brace. >> good morning. >> yes. >> you know, what is bad is fact you have to say what you just said that we're still tonight. we still have a chance. is there still two division games left. we have redskins and giants. it is enough is enough. this is a bad football team. you saw last night how good arizona cardinals are. they are a real team. that is a super bowl contender. >> carson palmer will throw for 5,000-yard. >> he has 30 plus touchdowns, incredible season across the board. >> but where is tackling. >> there wasn't a a lot of tackling. >> they struggled in that department for sure. >> it felt like they just kept running and we just could not catch them. >> it is very similar to the doug martin perform answer earlier this year. eagles are just not a good football team right now. we saw that last night. >> what about the the off season moves. we have two games left. demarco murray does in the
7:18 am
play, we paid him that much money. >> is what up with demarco. there was a moment i thought was interesting where there was a split screen of demarco's face and chip kelly's face. there was moments where he could have been good. >> it comes up exactly what you said about the money. your mine goes automatically, eagles spent over 40 million-dollar. nfl contracts work, only thing they get is guarantied they went after demarco mur toy make him lead back. it just didn't pay off that way. i'm with you getting crazy in the off season but right now what does it do. demarco murray, it is good to have a number of backs healthy. that is one thing we can count on is the fact that he is not hurt. he is able to play if we need him to go but just not that effective. >> able to play but they are not playing him. >> we need two more games this breaks down redskins are at the top of the nfc east at seven-seven. the top of their division. eagles six-eight, giants six-eight. giants are not out of this either by the way.
7:19 am
>> no, giants there because if the eagles won they would have been out of playoff contention but that did his not happen. >> do we beat redskins at home saturday night. >> what do you think? >> after that game i don't know. >> do you think we will. >> no, look at the the secondary. who is playing quarterback. byron maxwell has a bad hamstring. >> we will see how this plays out with the injuries they sustained but eagles are playing cornerbacks number five and six on that list. jaylen watkins, ed reynolds, chris maragos were out on the the field at that same time. you will not win games playing those guys. desean jackson, curt cousins is a decent quarterback. i have to take the redskins at this point you don't think we will make the the playoffs. >> no. >> redskins take this division. >> yes, that is how it will happen. >> what a shame. >> really. >> you know, steve harvey is doing all right.
7:20 am
>> yes. >> remember there was so much hope. some analyst pick the bird to win the super bowl. >> yes. >> i'm not talking about locally but nationally. >> you're right. you play the game on the feel. it is in the played on paper. it is a cliche but a truth. chip kelly took a team that went ten-six that wasn't good enough for him, flipped the script and here we are looking at a six-ten season. it is ugly. not pretty right now. >> what do you do. >> i guess we can't put the nail in the coffin just yet. that would be wrong. >> it sound like he has. >> he is done. >> i have. >> are you done with sam bradford too then. >> he is up for renegotiation. >> would i bring him back. i would. i look at sam bradford and offensive line was beat up. i'm in the trying to make excuses but who else is out there. who is your quarterback next year if you do not want sam bradford, mark sanchez. >> yes.
7:21 am
