Watch the Eagles LB rumble with a fumble for a touchdown that beat the spread:
By Peter Brennan
If you took the Redskins and laid the 6 1/2 points, you lost!
The box score will show that the Eagles beat the Redskins, 37-27, with an easy cover of the spread.
But with less than a minute left to play, the Eagles were actually trailing Washington by three points. It took a touchdown by Greg Ward Jr. with 26 seconds to go to give Philly a four-point lead. But still, the spread appeared safe. The Redskins were going to cover.
Nigel Bradham had other ideas.
As the Redskins looked to run one Hail Mary attempt at the end zone, the Eagles’ pressure got to Dwayne Haskins, forcing the Washington quarterback to fumble as time expired. Bradham picked up the ball and could have gone down to end the game. He didn’t do that.
Instead, Bradham kept running and scored a 46-yard touchdown to give the Eagles a 10-point win. The Eagles somehow covered a spread that just minutes earlier appeared out of reach.
Let’s just say that some bettors weren’t too thrilled with that bad beat.
