Brandon Staley won't have to move that far for his first head coaching opportunity. Staley agreed to become the Los Angeles Chargers' coach on Sunday night after one season as the defensive coordinator for the crosstown Rams. The Chargers made the decision to hire Staley after their second interview with him.
The fact Reid had backup quarterback Chad Henne, in for the concussed Patrick Mahomes, throwing to Tyreek Hill in the flat to clinch the victory added yet another element of suspense. ''We go through all those Saturday night with the quarterbacks, those situations: 'Fourth-and-1 to win the game, what do you want?''' said Reid, who never once thought about punting on fourth down. The Eagles led New England by three points approaching halftime in the Super Bowl for the 2017 season.
Last week the Saints were fooled by the Bears on a reverse throw. On Sunday, they pulled the same move against the Buccaneers for a touchdown.
