The streak of West Coast games in which a tailgater outside unfurled a Phillies banner reached two this afternoon. A similar scene took place three weeks ago in San Francisco when the Philadelphia baseball team was still en route to the city's first major sports championship in a quarter century.
Today's game at Qwest Field is the Eagles' chance to get the city's fans thinking about football again.
Because the Seahawks are so depleted by injuries, the Eagles should win this crucial game and set up a big game a week from tonight against the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field.
Eagles 27, Seahawks 13
