Eagles star Rodney McLeod took out two of his teammates on game-losing play

For the first time in what feels like quite a while but is actually barely a few years, the Philadelphia Eagles actually feel like a pretty good football team.

With rookie quarterback Carson Wentz under center controlling an offense that is working pretty nicely and Doug Pederson doing good things in his first year as head coach in Philly, there is cause for optimism amongst Eagles fans.

However, that optimism will not be reaching Rodney McLeod very soon. That is after some amazing footage has come out that shows the Philadelphia safety basically tackling his own teammate to let the Cowboys win last week.

We're not joking. Just take a look at the video attached to this tweet to see the safety block off not one, but two of his teammates on the same play to set up Jason Witten's game-winning touchdown in overtime.

The play starts off poorly for McLeod, as he collides with cornerback Nolan Carroll, freeing Terrance Williams in the back of the end zone for what could have been a game-ending reception just there.

But McLeod isn't done. He then sprints in the exact opposite direction to where he just came from, not bothering to stop Witten at all, instead crashing into Malcolm Jenkins, who was in pretty solid coverage against the Dallas veteran.

The two Eagles crashed to the floor leaving Witten in a literal acre of space. What a god awful play from such a normally competent player. And against your biggest rivals to boot. Ouch.
