It all comes down to this, the Eagles playing against the Washington Redskins with a playoff spot on the line. The Birds have dominated the first half and lead the Redskins, 10-0, while Chicago leads the Vikings, 13-0, in Minnesota. Here's what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:
Foles hasn't looked sharp in the first half, throwing an interception and missing high on a few other throws. However, the Eagles have found a lot of success running the ball, picking up over 70 yards on the ground in the first half. Granted, the quarterback has done a great job of moving the sticks on third-and-short, but the Eagles need to rely on their run game in the second half to preserve their lead.
Second Half X-Factor: Da Bears!
The Rams have jumped out to a huge lead over the 49ers, which isn't great, but Chicago has fulfilled their end of the bargain, leading Minnesota at the end of the half. Chicago needs to hold on over their division rivals for the Eagles to have any chance of qualifying for the postseason.
