A scampering squirrel caught on camera made a preseason game at Lincoln Financial Field seem a little less dull Thursday night.
Squirrel jokes – some good, some awful – promptly flooded Twitter as the Eagles went on their way to a 38-31 win over the Miami Dolphins.
Spoiler alert: Matt McGloin inspired many of them.
Here are some examples:
Squirrel has a good motor. Takes a good route to the ball. Impressive. Long shot to make the team but putting together an impressive tape— Pat Egan (@Pat_Egan) August 25, 2017
That squirrel would be the Eagles' second-best cover corner— FakeWIPCaller (@FakeWIPCaller) August 25, 2017
That squirrel has a higher passer rating than Matt McGloin.— Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) August 25, 2017

That squirrel has spent more time on a football field than Kaepernick has this preseason.— Sports Facts (@SportFactCheck) August 25, 2017
