The Philadelphia Eagles had their sights set on a Super Bowl repeat, but it was not meant to be as they fell to the New Orleans Saints 20-14 in the NFC Divisional Round game.

Despite not going further into the playoffs, the Birds are expressing their thanks for the success the team had this season and staying positive about the future.
Malcolm Jenkins

"What a crazy fun ride! Didn't get what we wanted but I'm proud of the brothers I play next too. Thank you to all of the fans who stuck with us all year! Amidst all the doubt and hate we just kept fighting and hopefully represented you well! #flyEaglesfly"

Donnel Pumphrey Jr.

"We'll be back next year, just watch .I couldn't be more proud of my teammates for the way they've fought all season through adversity. This has been an incredible journey.The worse part about the end of each season is knowing that the next season will be different. #FLYEAGLESFLY"

Merrill Reese

Season finales are never easy. The "what could have been" is especially difficult to digest. The only team that ends the season on a high note is the one that wins it all. Still we have every reason to be proud of this team that dug itself out of a ditch and took us on a ride.
