If embattled Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo is feeling the heat from his unit blowing three consecutive fourth-quarter leads, he's clearly not showing it.
Humbled by an awful start, the Philadelphia Eagles are ready to bury that "Dream Team" label.
After missing the playoffs the past two years with late-season collapses, losing key players to free agency and then being hit a number of injuries before the start of the season, there weren't a lot of people expecting much from the New York Giants.
Rex Grossman inhaled deeply late Sunday afternoon before he stared into the cameras and explained the interception that jeopardized the Washington Redskins' seven-point fourth-quarter lead over the St. Louis Rams.
So much for Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys getting extra time to savor something good.
When Eagles players, the Jets coach and the Cowboys owner ramped up the expectations for their teams, it seemed reasonable. All had the talent to challenge for a championship.
Did the end of Sunday's game cost you a few fingernails, Washington Redskins fans? Did you find yourself wondering: Is any lead safe anymore in the NFL - even a 17-point, fourth-quarter edge against the winless St. Louis Rams, who, at times, have trouble getting the ball snapped?
This Dream Team is a nightmare.
Once upon a time, the Detroit Lions won a playoff game.
