Tune in at 1:00 PM ET as the Ravens take on the Eagles. Kail Schofield will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Good morning everyone! It is almost gametime!
Today, Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles take on Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens!
Alright, early on, who are you all cheering for?
The Eagles barely escaped Week 1 with a narrow victory in Cleveland. Vick, despite his 4 picks, managed to lead his team into the red zone and put up the winning points in the dying minutes.
The Ravens looked very solid in dismantling the Bengals on Monday night. A solid performance by Flacco has a lot of people putting Baltimore in the AFC Championship game.
How will the wide-9 technique of the Eagles d-line work against a solid runner like Ray Rice?
Can McCoy get any yardage against a solid front 7?
predictions from our league champ, Mr. Geof Barber...
"Ravens by 13; Rice goes for 80yds and a score. Torrey Smith with a HUGE game". Geof is also partially drunk already.
predictions from our breakfast host, Colin Sutton:
"Eagles by 4; Vick throws 2TDs and rushes 1. He guarantees it. " He is incredibly drunk, but that's from last night.
they are now bitching about it...whatever. just don't burn my bacon.
Gametime is just a few minutes away!
Andy Reid is looking quite Stadler-esque with that moustache.
Always struggled to figure out where Reid ranks within the coaching annals...
Top-10? 5? He's never won the big one, but always has his teams in the playoffs.
Kickoff on the way... Eagles to receive...
surprise, the kick goes thru the end zone...
Eagles start on their own 20
1st and 10 PHI, own 20 - playaction, over the middle to Celek for a 1st down! tons of time in the pocket!
23 yard pickup on the play
1st and 10 PHI, own 43 - pocket rolls left, Vick to Jackson for another big pickup, 1st down!
1st and 10 PHI, BAL 40 - handoff to McCoy, right side. Pickup of 2.
2nd and 8 PHI, BAL 38 - Vick tries Jackson in the left flats, loss of yardage! BAL sniffs that out!
3rd and 10 PHI - Vick threads the needle to Avant for a 1st down!
1st and 10 PHI, BAL 24 - Vick rolls left, short pass to Celek, he picks up 5.
good pace so far for the Eagles...
2nd and 5 PHI - handoff to Johnson, he scampers for a 1st down!
1st and 10 PHi, BAL 13 - short handoff to Havili, 1yd gain
2nd and 9 - Vick scrambles to his right, throws across his body into the end zone... INTERCEPTION!!!
dumb, dumb play. Vick could've kept it and got 4-5 yds on the sidelines.
absolute waste of a great opening drive.
1st and 10 BAL, own 20 - short pass to Rice in the right flats, no gain!
2nd and 10BAL, own 20 - Flacco steps back, stripped, fumble...recovered by PHI!!!!!
