The first half of the divisional game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints was an injury riddled one for the away team as the Eagles had two players leave the game on carts and others go down and removed from the field.
One of the biggest injuries had to have been Fletcher Cox, who had to leave the game and go to the locker room for further tests.
That prompted former Washington Redskins QB Joe Theismann to take to Twitter and send out an unfortunate tweet about his absence.
Yeah, social media had a lot to say about this.
