up. if we had a chance to go for it and win it, we were going to win it. i wanted to win the football game. the other thing is, you know, even our chances in overtime were less than 50% of winning this game. so, you know, as an underdog going in, i was going to win the game in regulation. >> so how did all of doug's players feel about him going for two? we'll hear from them in sports. the eagles have lost 9 of 11 games and they're officially eliminated from playoff contention. we already knew that. i'm john clark, live in baltimore. see you in 12 or 13 minutes. >> thank you. christmas came early for kids in need. members of the police department welcomed santa and some of his little elves. nbc 10 was at the crock center for the police department's gift giving event. more than 50 families were selected from local churches and community organizations to receive the gifts. the event was organized by the fraternal order of police lodge
