Snow. Lot's of snow. The Philadelphia Eagles pulled off a second half comeback Sunday afternoon en route to their 34-20 victory over the Detroit Lions in the "Snow Bowl" at Lincoln Financial Field.
The original weather forecast for today was an inch or less of snow. Well, Philadelphia saw about eight inches of snow. By the time the game was set to kickoff, there was already around three inches on the field. Stadium crews were working up until kickoff time to clear the the yard lines. However, that was just the light stuff.
The snow got heavier when the game started and never let up until the second half. That's when the Eagles offense started getting hot.
The Eagles started the second half trailing the Lions 14-0. The Lions just couldn't hold on to the lead as the Eagles went with the old-fashioned ground-and-pound to outscore the Lions 34-6. The Eagles continued to give the ball to LeSean McCoy over and over again in the second half. It turned out to be their best decision because McCoy shift into another gear and plowed his way through eight inches of snow on the playing field to run for two touchdowns in the second half.Read more...
