The sports world has been put on hold, but that mean between washing our hands we can’t still spend time watching sports. 

Even though the Eagles wouldn’t be in season anyway, here are 10 games that even during these tough times will leave a smile on your face: 

1980 NFC Championship Win

My favorite part: Wilbert Montgomery running 42-yards on the second play from scrimmage is kind of like the Duce Staley touchdown against Tampa Bay, only with a way different result. 

Michael Vick dominates Washington

My favorite part: The touchdown to DeSean Jackson to start the game was amazing, but still crazy to see the absolutely perfect ball placement on the touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin over two defenders to make it 35-0. 

Miracle at the Meadowlands

My favorite part: No matter how many times I watch it, it is still wild to think Jackson dropped the ball initially and turned it into one of the best moments in league history. 

NFC Championship win over Atlanta

My favorite part: Sixteen seconds into the video, linebacker Jeremiah Trotter gets into the backfield, makes a big tackle and celebrates. I will alway remember seeing that image on the cover of a magazine after they won the game and finally made it to the Super Bowl 

Nick Foles Throws Seven Touchdowns

My favorite part: Nick Foles’ third touchdown of the game really shows the absurdity of that day. A long pass to Riley Cooper in tight coverage resulted in a 67-yard touchdown pass. 

Snow Bowl

My favorite part: I’ll always remember sitting in the press box being unable to see almost anything because of the snow, then looking up at the TV and not being able to see anything there either. 

NFC Championship win over Minnesota

My favorite part: The Patrick Robinson touchdown changed the game. I’ve never felt the Linc louder than it was after that score. 

Pickel Juice Game

My favorite part: The onside kick. One of the most memorable plays in the history of the franchise. 

Carson Wentz beats Dallas

My favorite part: The biggest win of Carson Wentz’s career. For all of the talk of how great he was in 2017, this win was one of the first times Wentz stepped up and won a game for the Eagles they probably shouldn’t have won considering the injuries they were dealing with. 

Super Bowl Win

My favorite part: Watching the Philly Special really does show how this team was clicking on all levels. The 2018 or 2019 team trying to run that play would result in a disaster.
