Page (1) of 1 - 12/22/14||
|For three-quarters of the seasonThe Philadelphia Eagles hid their flaws and overcame glaring weaknesses. Then came December. Three straight losses, including a crushing 27-24 defeat to Washington (4-11) on Saturday, has the Eagles (9-6) on the brink of playoff elimination. If Dallas beats Indianapolis late Sunday afternoon, the Eagles are finished. No one could've predicted this collapse after Philadelphia whipped the Cowboys 33-10 on the road on Thanksgiving to take control of the NFC East. But the Eagles followed that up with home losses to Seattle and Dallas before falling flat against the Redskins, who snapped a six-game losing streak with the victory.
