We saw the result Sunday.

As a well-conditioned, disciplined team will do, the defense gave up 72 yards, then 74 yards, but stiffened each time and allowed only a field goal, then nothing more … then collected three sacks as the end drew near.

The offense started the game with three wide-receiver screens and scored the final TD with another — plays that demand the timing, detail, and focus fostered by efficient practice.

Even the punter, Australian rules football alum Arryn Siposs, had a great day.

It was the Eagles’ best possible day.


Dallas lost. Washington lost. The Giants were losing as Graham walked out of Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Could it possibly have gone any better, BG?

“You already know!”

Woo-hoo, BG. Woo-hoo.
