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.

With DeSean Jackson possibly out for the rest of the season and the team clinging to Mack Hollins, a special teams "ace" that has more penalties on special teams than impact plays, and JJ Arcega Whiteside, who lost the Eagles a game with a drop of a ball that hit him in the face, the Eagles needed reinforcements at receiver.

The Eagles were on their way to a totally dominant win, but the brakes fell off at the half.

The team defense pitched a shutout in the first half and then gave up huge drives in the second. The offense cruised at times and then would suddenly cease to function.

The team has plenty to address in their upcoming bye week before they host two of the leagues best teams following that.

Home sweet home, right? The Birds are back at the Linc for the first time in what seems like a decade taking on the Chicago Bears.

Here's what I saw in the back half of the action:
