I’m fit to be tied.

Once again, my Philadelphia Eagles embarrassed me. They played to a 23-23 tie last Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. I would have said lowly Bengals, but since both are now 0-2-1, it would not have been fair to characterize the Bengals as any more lowly than my Eagles.

The Eagles had a chance to win overtime with a long field goal with less than 25 seconds left.

A false-start penalty killed that chance.

The only saving grace? Everyone else in the NFC Least lost, so the Eagles actually gained a half-game on Dallas and Washington.

Speaking of gaining, Gazette news columnist Sara Foss added another game to her lead over me. Sara went 10-5-1 to improve to 34-13-1. I was 9-6-1 and am now 30-17-1.
