Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) –  Trailing by seven with five minutes to play, Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles on two scoring drives, the second ending with Cody Parkey hitting a go-ahead field goal with time expiring, as the Eagles clip the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, Monday night.

The Colts (0-2) never trailed until Parkey hit the game-winning kick. Indianapolis went into halftime up 17-6 after Andrew Luck found tight end Jack Doyle for a two-yard touchdown. The Colts furthered their lead in the second half when Adam Vinatieri’s field goal made it 20-6 with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter.

Despite the deficit the Eagles (2-0) never panicked, scoring on two touchdowns in less than two minutes to finish off the third tied 20-20.  The Colts answered back on their first drive of the fourth quarter when Luck threw his third touchdown of the game, a seven-yard pass to Ahmad Bradshaw, to go back up by seven.

The game stayed that way until the the 3:25 mark when Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard touchdown to tie it up. The Eagles defense made Indianapolis go four and out before Parkey hit the game-winning field goal.

“We felt we had some plays (in the first half), we just couldn’t make them,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. “But we’re going to play 60 minutes and we played 60 minutes.”

Darren Sproles made seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Andrew Luck lost two consecutive games for the first time since joining the NFL, despite throwing three touchdowns.

Vince Young Announces Retirement

Vince Young Announces Retirement

Jay Drowns/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — He has not played since 2011, but Vince Young announced his retirement from the NFL on Saturday. Young played parts of six seasons with the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles.

Young was the third overall pick in 2006 by the Titans and was named Rookie of the Year, starting immediately. The former Texas Longhorn was also selected to the Pro Bowl in both 2006 and 2009. The 31-year-old threw for 8,964 yards and 46 touchdowns during his career.

After not playing in 2013, Young was cut by the Green Bay Packers and was later signed by the Cleveland Browns May 1. Cleveland also signed Tyler Thigpen that day before releasing Young after they drafted Johnny Manziel. 

Althought he signed a rookie contract that guaranteed him just under $27 million, Young suffered from financial issues his entire career and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year.
