The Philadelphia Eagles advanced in the NFL playoffs by the slimmest of margins.
The Eagles kept their season alive when Chicago kicker Cody Parkey double-doinked his game-winning attempt at the end of Sunday’s game. That miss prompted officials at Philadelphia’s PECO building to have fun at Parkey’s expense on Monday night.
On the crown lights at the top of the Center City skyscraper in downtown Philadelphia, the energy company used Parkey’s miss to bring attention to their building.

The building has often made comments about Philadelphia sports victories in the past.
But was this one below the belt? Will it prompt some bad karma for the Eagles as they travel to New Orleans for Sunday’s semifinal NFC playoff game?
And would it be unsurprising if a building in Chicago promotes a similar message of failure during PECO’s next power outage?
