Alshon Jeffery’s 34-yard touchdown catch put the Eagles up 9-3, and it drew some pretty excited announcing from those calling the game around the world. Here, in order, is how it sounded on NBC Universo, ESPN Brasil, ESPN Latin America, on Australian radio outlet SEC 1116, and on Westwood One radio with Kevin Harlan.
Earlier this month, the Eagles scored a touchdown and celebrated with an elaborate baseball-themed celebration. Nelson Agholor threw a pretend ball, and Torrey Smith knocked it over the fence. Today, Alshon Jeffery scored on a long pass from QB Carson Wentz, and teammate Zach Ertz “plunked” him.
Tim Rohan of The MMQB spent the start of NFL free agency shadowing Adam Schefter for 24 hours. What he produced was a revealing timeline that chronicles the manic energy of an NFL scoop hound on the biggest day of the year for NFL scoop hounds.

Alshon Jeffery is not having the best year. He’s set to be a free agent this offseason, and a bounce-back season in which he returned to his 2013-14 form could have set him up for a decent payday.

Because he went the other way, sucka. Pretty play, and this game has had a few of them. Bears/Packers might be your best option right now, if you have access. Bears lead, 17-14.
Alshon Jeffery: fantastic football player, horrible interview. But Dan Patrick's a pro, and he powered through four painful minutes with the Bears receiver on his show this morning, despite Jeffery's total lack of interest in answering questions beyond platitudes and one-word responses.
Lane Kiffin says a lot of crazy things, but he would never say that living in South Carolina is a one-way ticket to death by gasoline fumes. That's just not his style.
