Eagles are letting the dogs out ... or in on Sunday

The dogs will be out in full force on Sunday night and the Eagles are all too happy to allow it. 

After the Birds’ 15-10 triumph on Saturday, Lane Johnson and Chris Long, among others in the Eagles’ locker room, wore dog masks that the duo bought on Amazon as a reminder to everyone who picked the Falcons to win and to the oddsmakers that made the Eagles home underdogs for the tilt.

Once the masks appeared after the game, fans began buying them up, selling Amazon out of the look and also creating a huge market on eBay as well. For fans who were lucky enough to get the mask, they were probably wondering if they could wear it to the game on Sunday vs. Minnesota. Well, the Eagles answered that question in a tweet Monday morning.

The Eagles have completely embraced the role of the underdog and they’ll be underdogs again on Sunday night as they look to punch their ticket to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2004.

The city has been completely behind the Eagles all season long and there will be hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of dog masks inside the Linc on Sunday night.

Eagles teammates expose Nelson Agholor's golf swing

Fortunately for Nelson Agholor, he doesn't make a living off his golf swing.

Instead, he gets paid to make plays on the football field, something he did plenty of during a career year last season, helping the Eagles win their first-ever Super Bowl title.

But that didn't prevent his teammates from ribbing him Monday.

Zach Ertz and Wendell Smallwood exposed their buddy by posting videos of Agholor golfing not so well (to put it nicely) on their Instagram stories, which you can watch here.

It clearly looks like Agholor is a beginner at the sport of golf. Give him credit for trying. Known for being one of the hardest workers in the Eagles' locker room, it wouldn't be surprising to see, with time, Agholor develop that golf swing.

But for now, he's going to draw some comparisons to Charles Barkley.

The Dodgers are now calling Chase Utley 'dad'

Dodgers shortstop Kike Hernandez hit a two-run homer off Stephen Strasburg in the fifth inning on Sunday to help spark his team’s 7-2 win over the Nationals on Sunday. 

Then he thanked his dad. 

Not his real one. 

In his postgame interview with SportsNet LA, the 26-year-old thanked his 39-year-old teammate Chase Utley, who is apparently a father figure. 

"After my first at-bat my dad Chase told me to use his bat, and I did, and first pitch I hit a homer,” Hernandez said. “It’s dad’s bat.”

So the Dodgers are now calling Utley dad. Fantastic.
