Only a game out of the division lead and the hapless Cowboys headed to town, Week 10 was the time for the Eagles to make a statement and morph into the team that won a Super Bowl last year. Well, that didn’t exactly happen. On a new episode of Football Date Night, Melissa and Dave discuss the many ways the 4-5 Eagles are nowhere near the team they fielded a year ago.
Dave then has a gloating session about his Chicago Bears which includes a new nickname for Mitch Trubisky and a breakdown of Khalil Mack’s signature sack. The duo close out the show by examining the Patriots’ loss to the Titans and ponder whether the Tom Brady regression has begun.
