The 12 best photos from the Eagles-Lions Snow Bowl

Dec 9, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT

Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Shady McCoy and the rest of the Eagles weren’t the only professionals to put on a hell of a performance during the blizzard in South Philadelphia on Sunday. The guys with the cameras in their hands from the Associated Press, USA Today Sports, and other outlets used the serene setting to capture some truly fantastic images.

Nick posted about 30 images from mostly before the game yesterday, but here are my hand-picked favorites. Jason Kelce’s mesmerizing beard did not qualify.

Everyone is saying how yesterday’s winter wonderland of a game will be one we all remember forever. These amazing photos should help that. Here are 12 of our favorites. 10 from the AP, 1 from USA Today, and the unknown sourcing of the Shady McCoy masterpiece on the Eagles Instagram account at the bottom.

    One of the most memorable games ever.

    Nice to have a coach who is willing to adjust his game plan.

    watched a ton of eagles games since 1960 this game as well as the playoff fog bowl in Chicago have to be 2 of the craziest games ever, i know there are more but these two stand out besides the miracle at the meadowlands

    The kickoff with Rocky music blaring, fireworks exploding and blinding snow was chill-inducing. Palpable bittersweet feeling of “Wow this is gonna be memorable”, and “Shit, we never ever win these goofy weather games” (Fog Bowl, freezing rainy NFC Champ game vs Panthers, post-blizzard Tue nite vs. Vikes, playing through Hurricane Sandy vs Atlanta, etc).

    And indeed through 2.5 quarters three-and-outs you could tangibly feel a cold hopelessness start to creep in. But fans didn’t cave, and Chip played it perfectly….kept taking the disciplined long view even through impatient “boo’s” on 3rd & long running plays while fighting for every inch of field position. There’s a reason he’s the head coach and we’re not, and he proved why.

    If NFL films had coconuts they’d convert all highlights of that game to black & white, it felt like exactly like I’d imagine games in the 1940′s felt.
