PHILADELPHIA (AP) Now the Philadelphia Eagles can go back to being underdogs again.
After embracing that role last year and overcoming huge odds to win their first Super Bowl title, the Eagles haven't lived up to expectations as defending champions. They blew a 17-0 lead in the fourth quarter and lost 21-17 to Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
"Pressure's off, so we can go play, have fun and just relax," coach Doug Pederson said. "A lot of football ahead, too. Anything's possible, anything can happen."
