The Eagles managed to get two wins before heading into their bye week with a 5-4 record.

The bye was very good to the Eagles in their playoff hunt, but not necessarily for the injury report as the report has more players out than it did for the Bears game despite Jason Peters coming off of the report.

Week Eleven Preview: New England Patriots at Philadelphia Eagles

By Matt Szczypiorski, Sports Talk Philly Contributing Writer

Eagles vs. Patriots. Those three words are enough to stir up the emotions of any Eagles fan. You know exactly where you were, who you were with and how long you cried tears of joy the last time these two teams played.

While this Sunday’s edition of Eagles-Pats doesn’t hold nearly the same weight of the last match-up, it is a very important game for the Birds.

The Eagles head into Sunday on a two-game winning streak off their bye in the thick of the playoff race. Yet, it doesn’t feel like it. Why?

To me, it’s a combination of reasons. One would be that with a 5-4 record, this team is not where we anticipated they would be in the beginning of the season. Another would be the excessive amount of injuries to key players this team has suffered (DeSean Jackson, Nigel Bradham, Jason Peters, Alshon Jeffery).

The final, but most significant reason, at least in my opinion, is that even with all of those factors, the Eagles performances have been quite, dare I say, underwhelming. They are a 5-4 team that could easily be 7-2 if their receivers could catch the football. They’ve had some extremely disappointing losses coupled with some wins that hardly felt like wins considering the way they played.

I know, a win is a win. But if this team expects to be competing for a playoff spot, I’m going to need to see some more convincing performances from the entirety of the team. Not only that, but it needs to be more consistent. It’s time for the Birds to make a run.

On Wednesday, Darren Sproles felt some discomfort.

An MRI revealed he had suffered yet another injury and would likely be heading to injured reserve and the end of his career.

To cope with that, the Eagles brought in free agent running back Jay Ajayi for a workout Friday.

The workout must have gone pretty well as the Eagles are looking to sign a deal with the running back shortly after his visit, the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Jay Ajayi To Work Out With Eagles

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles will need to rely heavily on their running game going forward, but just two weeks ago, the Baltimore Ravens showed the world how venerable the Patriots can be to a strong run game.

With the Eagles playing the Patriots this week, the team will again rely heavily on it.

The problem is that Darren Sproles is suffering from another soft tissue injury and Jordan Howard has been sidelined in practice with a shoulder injury.

That would leave just Miles Sanders and Boston Scoot for the Eagles to run the ball.

Late on Thursday night, Ian Rappoport of the NFL Network had an update on the situation.

Bye Week Is Good To Eagles, Birds Very Much In Playoff Hunt

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

For as much as it feels like the Eagles have been getting beat down this season, the team is actually still in pretty good shape in regards to the playoffs, especially after this week.

Sure, a bye week is almost always in favor of the team on bye getting a chance to heal, but the Eagles got a little help from the schedule this week.

The Eagles are not exactly in an ideal position in regards to the playoffs with a 5-4 schedule, but they find themselves tied for a the sixth-best record in the NFC following their bye and just 2.5 games out from the second first-round bye.

The Eagles are now focused on trying to go 12-4 with arguably the easiest part of their schedule set to end the season following match-ups with the Patriots and Seahawks - both Eagles home games.
