Eagles’ worst-case scenario: They lose to the Raiders, which forces them to play all of their starters in the regular-season finale against Dallas on New Year’s Eve.
Head coach Jack Del Rio and his team must win their final two games while also getting a lot of help from other conference teams. In 19 games in an Eagles uniform since 2013, Foles has thrown 44 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Off a 12-4 finish and a playoff appearance in 2016, the Oakland Raiders have already lost twice as many games as they did a season ago.
Before the Eagles take on the Raiders on Monday Night Football, the Steelers and Texans will face off in a Christmas Day matinee. His last INT in an Eagles uniform came on November 2, 2014, when the Texans picked him off three times at NRG Stadium in Houston – A.J. Bouye had a pick-six against Foles and Jumal Rolle picked him off twice, two of his three career interceptions. “I think we have some really good players”. He put it in a spot where I could get it. “But definitely look at that as good decision making, going through my reads, my progressions, and if it’s not there, being smart”.
LACK OF URGENCY: The Eagles haven’t missed a beat on offense since Wentz tore his ACL against the Rams on December 10. In the Previous five, they allowed 92. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz blamed it on a lack of urgency.
“It’s a awful cliche, but it took us three series of getting punched in the mouth before we responded and started playing more consistently”.
Pederson, a former backup quarterback, is a players’ coach. The Raiders are going into the game with little depth on their offensive line after placing LT Donald Penn and reserve guard/center Jon Feliciano on injured reserve.
Eagles: They delivered another clunker against the Giants and have allowed a combined 81 points in the last three games. There are many factors that led to the starkly opposite seasons for the two teams. The passer rating against the Raiders has dropped from 113.3 to 75.9.
“I know there’s things I can do better”, Carr said. The good news is, he shouldn’t need to, especially if the defense does its job. I’ve seen him do it before.
To celebrate, we’ve given you the gift of another festive National Football League double-header, live on Sky Sports, with the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-3) travelling to take on the Houston Texans (4-10), and Oakland Raiders (6-8) on the road facing the Philadelphia Eagles (12-2).
McGloin made start No. 7 the next week against the Denver Broncos with the AFC West and a playoff bye on the line.
The Eagles can clinch the NFC’s top seed and home-field advantage until the Super Bowl if the Vikings don’t defeat the Packers in Green Bay on Saturday night. I’m sure it’s fun for you and the fans, they love it, but as players we’re human too and would want to spend it with their family. That left rookie fourth-round pick Connor Cook. Smith-Schuster has had a solid season, and ranks third among National Football League rookies with 699 yards receiving. “And if that means resting a guy, you rest a guy, or two or three”. Carson Wentz was having an MVP-caliber season when he tore his ACL in Week 14. Led by Carr, Oakland’s offense is slow-moving and underwhelming.
