Former Patriot LeGarrette Blount, who signed a one-year deal with the Eagles last offseason, already has a 36-yard run and a 21-yard touchdown scamper against his former team. Here's what Blount said last week about facing New England: "Straight enemy mode," he said. "Ain't no friends, no homies, none of that. ... I don't play for the Patriots anymore. I don't watch the Patriots. I don't care about the Patriots."

Patriots No. 1 wide receiver Brandin Cooks has been ruled out for the rest of the game with a head injury after taking a big hit from Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins in the second quarter. Cooks caught a 23-yard pass over the middle and circled in an attempt to gain extra yardage when he turned to the outside and ran into a thunderous hit by Jenkins.

The hit was legal, according to our experts:

The Patriots missed a 26-yard field goal after Brandin Cooks failed to get a first down on this play early in the second quarter.

Following a 3-13 season with the Bears in 2016, Alshon Jeffery raised some eyebrows by saying, "I guarantee you we'll win the Super Bowl next year."

Well, now Jeffery is in the Super Bowl and playing well -- just not with the Bears. Jeffery, who signed a one-year deal with Philadelphia last offseason then got a four-year extension in December, has three catches for 73 yards and a touchdown so far in the first half.
