    BUT THEY DIDN’T. Cody Parkey missed the 43-yard field goal attempt that would’ve given the Bears a win on Wild Card weekend. Instead Jerome Brown Jersey , it’s the reigning Super Bowl champion Eagles who are moving on to the Divisional Round. Next up for the Eagles is ... a rematch with the Saints in New Orleans. Kickoff time is set for 4:40 on Sunday, January 13. Oh baby.The Eagles previously played the Saints in Week 11. That game ended with a final score of 48-7. It was easily their worst loss of the season.Now the Eagles will get another crack at the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC. The Saints are certainly going to be ready for this one. They felt like they would’ve beaten the Eagles in the playoffs last year if the Minnesota Miracle didn’t happen. Some Saints players also referred to the Eagles as “fraudulents” as recently as Week 16.We’ll soon see if the Saints can back up their trash talk this time around when the game matters a whole lot more. We’ll also see if Nick Foles and the Eagles can avenge their playoff loss to the Saints back in January 2014.The Eagles are coming for you, New Orleans. It appears that any discipline imposed on the four players arrested early Saturday for allegedly trying to skip out on a $64,000 bar tab in London won’t include making them inactive for the game at Wembley Stadium. Only one of the four players is inactive , and that player had been listed as doubtful due to injury.Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the four Jaguars who were arrested, questioned, and released were cornerback D.J. Hayden Womens Jason Peters Jersey , safety Barry Church, safety Ronnie Harrison, and safety Jarrod Wilson.Hayden in injured and is inactive. Also inactive are cornerback A.J. Bouye, cornerback Tyler Patmon Brian Dawkins Jersey , running back Leonard Fournette, defensive tackle Eli Ankou, tight end James O'Shaughnessy, and defensive end Dawuane Smoot.Given the number of injured cornerbacks and given that the other three players are all defensive backs , the Jaguars may not have had the luxury of disciplining the players by not letting them play.Rapoport adds that the arrests may have come after a misunderstanding. He contends that expensive bottles of alcohol were being sent to the players’ table, and that they thought someone else was paying for them. They were surprised to learn that they were the ones expected to pay.If the resolution included full payment for the alcohol, it’s likely that this excuse didn’t hold much water.
