Eagles actually blocked Cody Parkey's double-boink kick

USA TODAY Sports  Jerry Lai

Pace could still look to bring in competition for Parkey to battle him at training camp, and then consider making a change in the preseason, but for now, it doesn't make sense for the Bears to release their kicker in the offseason.

"I feel bad", Parkey said. It shows Eagles defensive tackle Treyvon Hester getting his hand on the ball to tip it.

Parkey can rest easy knowing it was blocked first. He smacked the football with his right foot, sending it toward the field goal, but the ball hit the left upright and bounced onto the crossbar, before falling forward, resulting in a loss. The tip by Hester was so subtle that the NBC broadcast didn't even mention it.

Parkey's teammates defended him after the game, pointing out he had nine of the team's 15 points. Of course, we do now know it was blocked for two reasons: The NFL says it was and photographer Jeff Haynes perfectly caught the play on camera. We win as a team, we lose as a team.

Interestingly, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav, the other two spinners in the squad of 18, were also included in the thirteen. Selectors have no qualms with using Khawaja as an opener.

Chris Long has got to be one of the best guys in the NFL. An incompletion would have nearly certainly meant an end to the Eagles' season, a quiet trip back to Philadelphia before the players cleaned out.

"It's going to be a tall task this week", Foles said.

Nagy said he's confident the Bears will use the loss as motivation heading into 2019, just as they used their season-opening loss to the Packers to help motivate them to a 12-4 season, and the NFC North title in 2018.
