    By Joseph Santoliquito PHILADELPHIA, PA (CBS) — Chip Kelly has always liked Nick Foles’ toughness. The Eagles’ coach saw Foles get pounded in college, and each time, Foles got back up. Maybe it took Foles to get knocked around again for the Eagles to wake up on Sunday against the visiting Washington Redskins. With 9:55 left to play, Foles threw what was an apparent interception, then received a cheap shot from Skins’ defensive lineman Chris Baker, who leveled Foles with a blindside shoulder in the chest. Jason Peters went after Baker, all hell broke loose, with the Eagles’ bench…

The team’s best player got hurt 15 minutes in. Oh no! Before anyone could even get excited for the start of Flyers season, Claude Giroux left the ice with what was officially deemed a “lower body injury.” (This is how hockey reports injuries.) But it appears Giroux injured his groin. “First day of camp and guys go 100 miles an hour — things happen,” Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told…

    By Joseph Santoliquito PHILADELPHIA, PA (CBS) — This was a little different. The Eagles trailed Washington for 29:51 of the first half, before taking their first lead in the first half this season, 21-20, on Sunday, despite Washington scoring on their first four drives. Rookie receiver Jordan Matthews caught a pair of 11-yard touchdown passes, his first career NFL TD receptions, the second with :09 left in the half that gave the Eagles a 21-20 edge. Nick Foles was 12-of-14 for 157 yards and two touchdowns in the half. That offset Washington’s Kirk Cousins, who riddled the Eagles’…

    CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — A man who carjacked a vehicle at knife point and then led police on a high-speed chase in southern New Jersey last year has been sentenced to 20 years in state prison. Isaac Jerdan, of Clayton, will have to serve nearly 19 years before he becomes eligible for parole under the sentence imposed Friday. Camden County prosecutors say the 29-year-old Jerdan carjacked the victim in a parking lot in June 2013 and drove off. A police officer soon spotted the vehicle and tried to stop it, but Jerdan drove off at speeds nearing 100 mph. The ten-minute chase ended when the…

    A brawl broke out on the Redskins' sideline with 9:55 remaining in the fourth quarter Sunday after Washington's Chris Baker laid out Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles on an apparent interception and was ejected. While Bashaud Breeland was returning the pick that later was overturned on video review, Baker blindsided Foles, putting his shoulder into the quarterback's chest. Foles was down on the ground for a few minutes as players from both teams pushed and shoved each other. Defensive lineman Baker was ejected, as was Philadelphia left tackle Jason Peters for his role in the melee on the…

    The Redskins-Eagles game kept getting chippier and chippier until things finally boiled over on one of the cheapest hits that will take place in the NFL this season. Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw what appeared to be an interception by Bashaud Breeland (it was overturned after a replay review), and he was nonchalantly following the play as Breeland was tackled. As Breeland was going to the ground, Redskins defensive tackle Chris Baker blindsided him, hitting him and lifting Foles off his feet. Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters was the first to get to Baker, hitting him in the face,…

The excitable Jackson was a question mark to play in this game for the Washington Redskins, his new team, against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team that dropped him like a bad habit in the offseason despite coming off a career high in receiving yards. But he fought through a shoulder injury just to suit up, and Jackson managed to surpass the 100-yard mark before the end of the third quarter thanks to an 81-yard touchdown catch to burn Chip Kelly and the Eagles deep. Naturally, Jackson was understated and restrained in his mild…

    It's a figure of speech usually reserved for the boxing and mixed martial arts world. Calling someone the best "pound-for-pound" anything is subjective and hard to define. Was Sugar Ray Robinson the best pound-for-pound boxer ever? Many say the man born Walker Smith Jr. was. When it comes to MMA, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has been given the title in the past. But what about basketball? Surely, Michael Jordan is somewhere on the list. He may top it. But not for Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant. Chuck too real. He changed the way we play ball. He changed the culture…

In basketball, few have ever loomed as large as Marvin "Bad News" Barnes, the second overall pick in the 1974 NBA draft behind Bill Walton.

    In the FIBA World Cup of Basketball, a team's fate can often come down to the luck of the draw. Assignments to the four groups are largely random outside of the four top-ranked squads, and those teams that draw early matchups (or prospective single-elimination games) against dominant powers like the United States and Spain must adjust expectations accordingly. In the 2014 tournament currently underway in Spain, teams in Team USA's Group C held out little hope of finishing at the top of the table for the preliminary round. Similarly, teams in Group D knew that a second-place spot, though…
