Since last gameday coaches have been busy prepping for clashmouth day in May. Everyone has an axe to grind with their next opponents to find out if the work they put in is sufficient to achieve victory on the vibrating field. The Browns practice field has been replaced and the “Dawgs” are looking to make noise plus they’ve been given a bye week to get ready. The Vikings are looking to “SKOL” someone and their next opponent are the Seahawks who have a bad taste in their mouth from eating Eagles feet after their 420 showdown. The Eagles are busy working to claw their next opponents eyes out. The Niners have found their next DC are are ready to prove they made the right decision. The Jets have a newfound fire after their sabbatical. The Bills are looking to explode again and prove week one was not an isolated event. The Rams are staying ready with their playbook so as not to complicate anything. And the Raiders believe they had righted the ship after their gameday 1 debacle.
The annual 420 game featured the noisy “Dawg” pound at the Eagles. These Dawgs had been making noise giving bulletin board material for the Eagles to chew on. Instead of the Dawgs noise, the Eagles were screeching loud with their play and led 19 – 0 at half. Although the Browns tried, the Eagles “D” was not allowing breathing room for the pound. The “Birds” dominated the second half by shutting down the Browns attack and putting another 7 points on the board for a 26 – 0 victory.

The match began with loads of defense. The Hawks opening drive ended with a 21 yd punt, The Eagle drive ended with a missed FG. The Hawks next drive ended in a 60 yd FG attempt that hit dead center for a 3-0 lead at the start of the 2nd qtr.
The battle was on for the next 43 minutes and 27 seconds as both defenses stepped up huge until the Coach Isaac’s Eagles got their first huge break when QB Cunningham burst around left end untouched to the endzone and a 7-3 lead. Shaken, Coach EMAC mounted what would be his last possession that began on a 50 yd kick return when the returner fell down for no reason with 1 min and 33 secs on the clock. Another break came with a completed pass to the Eagles 11 yd line and there the Eagles shook off the slumber and made a brilliant 4 down stand that left the Eagles the “Big Birds” of the week with a 7-3 hard fought victory on enemy soil.
