6:17 pm
43 degrees in atlantic city. 45 currently in wilmington. heading into the rest of tonight, we'll drop down to the 30s, even the 20s. and we're still dealing with the windchill factors. so our feels-like temperatures for the pocanos at 21 degrees but feels more like 42 in philadelphia. and feeling more like 37 degrees in wilmington. our radar shot shows the large system there. you can see it off to the northeast of us. and we are going to see that counterclockwise rotation. so our wind speeds are going to move in from the northwest heading into the rest of tonight. they will eventually step out of the west as high pressure rebuilds. so we'll start to see calmer conditions heading into the rest of tonight. pushing into tomorrow. our wind gusts right now are gusting up to 25 miles per hour in northeast philadelphia, but up to 33 in the pocanos. up to 26 in allentown. and our future winds show us that even as we head into the overnight hours, we are still dealing with strong wind speeds gusting into the 20s for philadelphia. and by the time you wake up tomorrow morning, it's still going to be breezy with wind gusts closer to 29 miles per
6:18 pm
hour for philadelphia. not quite as bad as what we saw today, but you'll still notice the wind speeds heading into tomorrow. the good news is all the cold air that made its way all the way through the south down into parts of the carolinas and parts of atlanta will continue to retreat to the north. so we'll see mild air making its return pushing into monday, tuesday and even into wednesday. so we are going to head above average, but we have to get through tonight first. and we were talking about some really cold temperatures for tonight. we'll drop down to 27 degrees for the pocanos. 28 in allentown. 29 in quakertown. 34 degrees in northeast philly. closer to the shore at 38 degrees in cape may. 39 in rehoboth beach. around the philadelphia area, 37 degrees for philadelphia. 34 degrees for chester. and you're seven-day forecast shows as we push into tomorrow, warmer than what we saw today, the mid-60s heading into tuesday and wednesday. by thursday we're in the mid-60s with a chance of showers. thank you, brittney. the eagles with a good win in houston, but how long will they be without nick foles and domico

newspapers speak out. tom corbett has been something of a disaster. tom corbett cut spending on education by a billion dollars... it's time for a change. elect tom wolf, and you'll get the type of governor we haven't seen for a while...
6:21 pm who looks out for average, hard-working pennsylvanians. it's wolf who has solid ideas for bringing in new business and for boosting the economy. tom wolf for governor, a fresh start for pennsylvania. hey, i'm john clark. the eagles lose their starting quarterback nick foles today. he could have a broken collarbone and could be out for a while. and domico ryan tore his achilles and he's possibly out for the season. but they still got the win. first quarter, he's not going to like this. nick foles deep for jeremy macland. 59-yard touchdown. the eagles are up 7-0. take a look here at foles hit by
6:22 pm
j.j. watts. the pass intended for riley cooper. intercepted by a.j. foyes. foles with eight picks over the last five games. we are tied at 7-7. foles is sacked and take a look at the left shoulder slammed down. that's where he apparently fractured his collarbone. goes back to the locker room and did not return. then mark sanchez comes in. his first action in two seasons, very first pass play -- sanchez going deep for macland. jeremy macland again, 52-yard gain. they close out the drive, look at this beautiful pass for jor thank matthews. the eagles are up 14-7 and chip is loving it. the eagles have a three-point lead at the half, third quarter, eagles get the running game going. la shawn mccoy passes for second place in eagle history on the game. and chris polk finishes off the drive with an eight-yard touchdown. the eagles are up ten and the
6:23 pm
defense is after it. riley fitzpatrick intercepts the ball here. he fumbles it right back because that's where he tears his achilles. he tore it in the same spot he did four years ago when playing for the texans. that's tough for domico. sanchez was under center, chris polk gets the first down for the eagles and that's pretty much going to be it. sanchez and jeremy macland, they ice it coming up right here. eight-minute drive, longest during the chip kelly era. the eagles win it and the birds are going to be hurting with domico out for the season. >> everybody knows it, what domico means to this team. he's the true leader. he's mufasa, he's our guy. but when a man goes down, you pick up his shield and play in honor of him. i think that's what our guys did. >> the injury, i'll wait until
6:24 pm
that gets announced. and domico, two big-time players on our team, stuff you never want to see happen. so that's tough. >> i was expecting a handout for a screen or an easier way in, but you know coach kelly, if he's a basketball coach, he would bring you off the bench to shoot three-pointers, so that's the way it goes. you have to be ready. >> we have a guy in mark that can step up and win some games. so i'm excited about him being back there and we'll continue to move forward. . >> how about jeremy macland? four touchdowns, 345 yards the last two games. one of the best receivers in football and he turned down a long-term deal in the offseason coming off knee surgery. >> you know, he picked a great year to sign a one-year deal. he's -- he's playing his butt off, man. >> i'm not going to call it gambling, i just think it's
6:25 pm
great and the best for me and my family. >> the cowboys with tony romo out with a back injury, they lose today to arizona. the backup quarterback brandon weidon really struggling. the cowboys lose 28-17. they are in second place behind the eagles. i'm john clark, be right back.
6:27 pm
