That is, according to their head coach.

Barry Trotz used a shrewd quip to send a message to his group after requiring stitches to close a gash he suffered on his forehead while working the bench.

"You're supposed to come to Philly and get marked up," he told reporters. "I'm the only one who came and got marked up."

And marked up he was. Check out the damage in the story stack below.
