In a quirk of fate the cities of Philadelphia and Houston square off in multiple ways tonight.  Thursday Night Football features the undefeated Eagles and the Texans in Houston.  At the same time the Houston Astros will be playing the Phillies in Philadelphia for game 5 of the World Series.  On today’s show we will do Eagles and Texans trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia during the Shemon and Sheppard Show on  ESPN Southwest Florida.

And GOOD NEWS!  Our phones are back for the first time since Hurricane Ian!

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

The Eagles arrive in Houston flying high with their undefeated record.  Jalen Hurts has improved leaps and bounds every year he has been in the NFL.  Meanwhile, the Texans are 1-5-1 and are pretty close to a dumpster fire as an organization.  They’ve had problems in the front office and, off course, there was the entire DeShaun Watson mess.

So let’s do Eagles and Texans trivia on Wiki-Pete-ia!

Good Luck!
