The Philadelphia Eagles were so close to completing another Nick Foles miracle comeback. However, the opportunity literally slipped through the hands of receiver Alshon Jeffery and into the open arms of the New Orleans Saints for an interception. Jeffery looked heartbroken on the sidelines, but after the game, the receiver handled the loss with class, as he shouldered all of the blame.
