The Eagles face the Redskins in week 15 of the regular season. The Eagles head into the half down 14 to 10 in a must win game for the Birds. Here’s what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:

First Half Offensive MVP

RB Miles Sanders. Sanders has had a great first half, rushing for 55 yards and scoring the Eagles lone touchdown. Sanders also added on two catches for 26 yards, including an 18 yard explosion for a first down.

First Half Defensive MVP

DE Brandon Graham. Graham has been the one bright spot in this Eagles defense, finishing the half with four tackles including one for a loss.

Who Needs To Step Up

Eagles Secondary: The Eagles secondary has looked horrible so far giving up 178 yards and two touchdown. The Eagles secondary really needs to step up in the second half if the Birds want to come away from this game with a win.

Who To Watch Out For

WR Terry Mclaurin. Mclaurin had a huge first half, totaling three catches for 97 yards, including a huge 75 yard touchdown. The Eagles secondary is going to need to contain the young speedster in the second half if the Eagles want to comeback in this huge divisional matchup.
