If the Eagles loss to the Cardinals late last year wasn’t the one that got away in the 2014 season, I’m not sure what was.

Nick Foles was brutal, throwing two picks on 62 attempts, causing clever Twitter users to refer to Chip Kelly as “Chip Reid.” Josh Huff had a crucial fumble in the first-half that probably cost the Eagles an eventual touchdown. Oh, and the team failed to punch the ball in from inside the five yard line in three attempts, ultimately settling for a Cody Parkey field goal.

And they nearly won.

That is, until with just under one minute left in the game Carson Palmer connected with John Brown, who burned Cary Williams for a game-winning touchdown that prompted him to dance like a fool in the endzone. It wasn’t fun.

Beyond being a revenge game for last year, the teams played a tight game in Philadelphia two years ago, one that the Eagles ultimately won with the assistance of a questionable call.

Both games have been highly important to the NFC playoff picture, and there’s no reason to think this year will be any different.

Also, despite him being the apple of the national media’s eye, I loathe Bruce Arians. He can never lose a game without being critical of the other team, always seems to be taking subtle shots at Chip Kelly-type offenses, and his hat/glasses combo just makes me like him even less. He’s become someone that is fun to root against, for me and many, and another close game this year will only help that narrative.
