turnovers cost the eagles yesterday. >> the chiefs were able to get 10 points off those two turnovers. moving on, the eagles they were not able to run the ball during this game very well but you you did find one play that that worked. >> i think there was some plays, opportunities for yards. second play of the game and it's a good designed play. here, number one you'll see here's the tight end over here, zach ertz. what they did -- he's in the tackle position. now they move lane johnson over in this position. next to jason peters and what we call an unbalanced offensive line. the big burlies out in front. let's go. give the ball to darren sproles. second play of the game and what do we get? a very positive running play. 12 yards from darren sproles. getting to the edge of the defense. jason kelce down field. the eagles can run the football, ducis. you must stay committed to running the football. because they stop you once, stop you twice, don't give up on it. stay committed. balance. good equilibrium so that important in the national football league. >> they certainly got away from it in that game
5:47 pm
yesterday. now, the game of football is always about miss matches and coach andy reid caught a good mismatch opportunity against the eagles defense. >> play calling is about probability, not certainty. andy reid called the play expecting the eagles defense to have four, let me show you this, four backup defensive line men on the field. take advantage of those guys with whom, kareem hunt. quick through the line. you get those four backup players blocked. you get kareem hunt to the secondary. oh, by the way, free safety, graham, a backup player, he runs by him. so, clearly andy reid caught the eagles with those backup players on the field and took advantage of it. >> so the eagles on sunday afternoon will have the new york giants a divisional game. how important does this one become. >> now they're becoming very important. these are becoming must win games division very tight right now early. >> eagles and giants 1 o'clock from the linc on sunday. he's jaws, i'm ducis. guys, back to you.

5:52 pm
maria now a major category four hurricane that is lashing parts of the leeward islands. we'll start with josé which is just off the coast of north carolina. winds right now sustained at 75 miles an hour with this storm and this storm really taking on more characteristics like a nor'easter than a hurricane as it continues to lift to the north over colders waters but still a storm we've got to watch that's churning up the water, pressure 977 millibars moving to the north at 10 miles an hour with wind gusts near the center of the storm over the open waters, nowhere on the east coast will see gusts like this but still around 90 miles an hour. as we track josé, it's moving to the north again around 10 so by tomorrow afternoon, 2:00 p.m., still a category one hurricane as it is just off the coast of rehoboth beach and i say just off the coast, i mean it's a couple hundred miles to our east and the cone of uncertainty is mainly over the open waters. again the winds not the major
5:53 pm
concern. the rain is not the major concern, it's just the large waves, the beach erosion and some of that minor coastal flooding. and then it kind of loops around and by saturday, this is the position on saturday. so it's just going to drift here as it weakens but that will keep the waters churned up like a washing machine the rest of this week going into the upcoming weekend keeping that rip current risk very high. temperatures are on the muggy side. low 70's at the shore, upper 70's inland and around 74 degrees for the lehigh valley. we're seeing some high clouds spilling in kind of on the periphery of josé and as we take a look at the rain bands, they continue to be way offshore but you can see they're trying to march to the north and west and should reach the shore by early tomorrow morning. in fact, the shore will see most of the rain out of this storm as the bands come inland, they will fall apart hitting drier air. in fact, there could be some sun tomorrow north and west of philadelphia, especially towards the lehigh valley, berks county, lancaster county in the afternoon while the

shore gets these bands of light to moderate showers and any of the bands that come in, that's when you'll start to see some of those peak wind gusts. so, along the coast, sustained 15 to 30 miles an hour. that's under tropical storm force. winds gusting to 45 miles an hour with a quarter to an inch of rain. inland locations it's a mainly cloudy day breezy 10 to 10 to 20 miles an hour with a gust to 35 with less than a quarter inch of rain. maria category four hurricane between guadalupe and saint lucia at the present time moving to the west-northwest at nine winds sustained 130 miles an hour. as it approaches san juan and parts of the u.s. and british virgin islands on the verge of a category five hurricane which is winds of 156 so it's very close to that. and then it will head towards the turks and caicos and the east bahamas as we head into the weekend so a really nasty storm once again drifting through parts of the caribbean, the third time this hurricane season. as we take a look at the exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast, 75, breezy but windy
