That was against a Giants team that have won just two games this season.

Numerous defensive players made big plays at the end in order for the Birds to get the win. In the remaining 22 seconds the Raiders failed to pull off their own miracle. The Birds quarterback said they need to make some serious improvements in order to make the offense more productive.

The Eagles offense had only two first downs in the second half.

If however, Cooper isn't able to go, once again, keep an eye on the Raiders supporting cast of wide receivers to see who steps up to fill the void.

Obviously, the outcome of this game most likely would have been much different with Aaron Rodgers in the game after the Packers chose to rest their beloved quarterback since they have already been eliminated from the postseason, and now the pressure is on the Eagles to come through against the Raiders in front of a national audience. But the secondary earned it's pay Monday against the shaky Carr.

After Tavecchio missed a 48-yard field goal with 7:58 remaining, Foles threw a pass that bounced off Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz's hands and was intercepted by Reggie Nelson at the Eagles 37.

By the time you're done unwrapping your shiny new Carson Wentz jersey, it'll nearly be time for Sixers-Knicks.




Eagles fans were singing the praises of Nick Foles all week after he threw four touchdown passes in a 34-29 win over the New York Giants.

Raiders: Nelson dropped what should've been a pick-6 in the second quarter. I will give them credit for finding a way to win the game, but how can you feel confident about this team in the playoffs, when you know they're going to face Super Bowl tested teams like the Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks or Atlanta Falcons.

Even though the Philadelphia Eagles don't play until Christmas night against the Oakland Raiders, Doug Pederson was hoping the team would receive some unexpected help over the weekend with the Green Bay Packers figuring out a way to defeat the Minnesota Vikings. Dannell Ellerbe earned his first career start for the Eagles at Major League Baseball.

I'm not surprised the Eagles starting quarterback Nick Foles and the offense struggled against the Raiders.

If they game showcased the team's defensive issues, Monday night underlined their offensive concerns without the athleticism and big-play ability of Wentz. After a run for a first down by Ajayi resulted in a lost fumble, the Birds caused Marshawn Lynch to cough the ball up one play later, setting up shot at the 30-yardline.

Philadelphia couldn't do much with excellent field position and settled for Elliott's tying 35-yard field goal.
