Until triumphant rally, Reid said Birds were "stinking the place up"

Andy Reid is flattered to hear that Eagles fans are enamored with the improbable comeback win over the New York Giants Sunday.
But Reid isn’t real happy with the deep hole the Eagles dug for themselves that necessitated scoring 28 straight points in the last 7:28 to defeat the Giants 38-31 at the New Meadowlands.
"I'm sure there were a lot of them who said they're stinking the place up and went out to get a ham sandwich," Reid said.
At any rate, the Eagles suffered another casualty.
Wide receiver Jason Avant sustained a concussion making the block that sprung DeSean Jackson for the game-winning touchdown.
“He felt fine coming home,” Reid said. “No headaches and the stuff you normally see. It doesn’t seem to be that bad.”
Additionally defensive tackle Mike Patterson is getting an MRI on a problematic knee.
Safety Nate Allen is done for the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon, paving the way for more snaps for Colt Anderson.
With a 10-4 record the Eagles need just one win over the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday night or versus the Dallas Cowboys the following week to clinch the NFC East pennant and a home game in the playoffs. Both of those games are at Lincoln Financial Field.
If the Eagles win out and the Chicago Bears (9-4) lose one of their three remaining games, the Eagles get the No. 2 seed and a playoff bye.
There is a 69 percent probability the Eagles will be the second seed in the playoffs according to
The Bears oppose the Vikings (5-8) tonight.
