What was going on around this game was impossible to ignore, starting with the short, but gracious video tribute to Reid the Eagles posted on the stadium scoreboards in the pre-game.

As it turned out, Philadelphia's overly generous Eagles showed Reid way more hospitality than they ever intended to.
