Well, once again the Eagles still hold their fate in their hands.  Somehow they managed to make it by spoiler game hurdle #2 and face the Redskins this week in spoiler game hurdle #3.  This time the lowly Redskins (3-10) get a chance to spoil the Eagles run for the playoffs and as I always note, anything can happen in inter-division games, no guarantees. 

This is the time that Carson Wentz needs to show his franchise QB status, this is where the great ones step up and lead their team to the playoffs even with any shortcomings of the team.  As I said all the way thru the Eagles SuperBowl Run in 2018, if the players and lines hold their own, that’s it, they should win this game no problem.  Unfortunately, the Eagles have had a problem doing that this year.  

The way I see it, if the Eagles D-line gets to Haskins and several sacks, get Ertz to have a productive day, and establish a running game combined with Wentz’s leadership, the prediction I will make is the Eagles will win 34-24.

Playoffs still possible, but Eagles need help

Dez Bryant catches one of three touchdowns over Bradley Fletcher in Cowboys 38-27 win over Eagles.

Coming into week 15 the Philadelphia Eagles controlled their own destiny in terms of winning the NFC East and making the playoffs. An Eagles win on Sunday night would have meant the Eagles would have needed just one more victory, or one more Cowboys loss to clinch the NFC East crown. However, after a disappointing 38-27 loss to the Dallas Cowboys the Eagles can still make the playoffs, but no longer control their own destiny. In order to make the playoffs, the Eagles first off have to win their final two games. If they do that, they will need a little luck.

Ironically, the Cowboys will face the Indianapolis Colts this weekend and face one of the best quarterbacks in football named Andrew Luck. The Colts (10-4) clinched the AFC South division yesterday with a 17-10 win over the Houston Texans, but are still in the hunt for a top two seed in the AFC playoff picture.

With the Eagles trailing the Cowboys by a single game in the division, they will need to win out and hope for the Cowboys to lose at least one of their final two games this season. The second game the Cowboys have is at Washington, which is a much easier game for the Cowboys, so the division title could very well be in the balance this weekend when the Colts roll into Dallas.

The Eagles have some hope with this contest as Dallas is ironically much better on the road (7-0) then they are at home (3-4) this season. The Colts hold a 4-2 road record and are one of the best teams in football, especially offensively which is bad news for the Cowboys who have a below-average defense in the league. Third in the league in scoring, the Colts come into to this game averaging a whopping 33.3 points per game on the road this year.

Riley Cooper and Cary Williams go at it!

Well, if Riley Cooper didn’t get enough attention from the video displaying bad behavior earlier this year, he is in the headlines again.  This time Riley and Cornerback Cary Williams had a tiff.

Williams was covering Cooper while doing a non-contact drill when they got a hold of each other and started to joust back and forth.  No one knows for sure what caused the scuffle or what was said.  After being separated by cornerback Brandon Boykin, Cooper proceeded to walk off the field.  Williams wasn’t done yet and threw his helmet to the ground and went to pursue him.  Michael Vick then stepped in and grabbed Williams and calmed him down.

Lets hope the extra energy displayed in practice today is carried onto the field on Monday night against the Redskins for a more positive performance than witnessed today.
