According to Pro Football Focus, the Eagles are two above-average players away from contending.
LeSean McCoy will reportedly sit out of the Pro Bowl due to injury.
The Eagles went from being able to wrap up a second straight NFC East crown at home to three weeks later being locked out of the postseason fun. The Eagles won 10 games, but will have nothing more to show for it. It never should have come to this.
LeSean McCoy stressed on Monday he wants to remain in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Eagles closed out a second straight 10-win season under Chip Kelly with a road victory against the division rival New York Giants Sunday afternoon in MetLife Stadium, but the Birds head to the offseason a little earlier than expected. Now the evaluations for the season will begin, but first it is time for one final evaluation on a single-game basis for the Eagles.
The five Eagles selected were hoping to skip this year’s NFL all-star game to play in the Super Bowl.
The Eagles have been eliminated from the playoffs and won’t be playing in January—but five Eagles will be playing in January, offensive tackle Jason Peters, center Jason Kelce, running back LeSean McCoy, linebacker Connor Barwin and special teams threat Darren Sproles.
With their playoff hopes squashed last weekend, the Eagles take to the road one final time to wrap up the 2014 season against the New York Giants. The Giants had their playoff hopes dashed much earlier in the season but look to end the year on a high note with some promise for 2015. After being embarrassed by the Eagles earlier this season, the Giants hope to pick up revenge on the Birds the way Dallas and Washington already have.
For McCoy not making the playoffs makes the year feel like a waste of time.
The Philadelphia Eagles suffered a third straight loss, and the pain that comes with each loss is growing more and more intense. With a 27-24 setback on the road against NFC East rival Washington, the Eagles now see their playoff hopes about to be flushed away.
After two straight losses at home put the playoff hopes of the Philadelphia Eagles on thin ice, the Birds get right back to work on Sunday on the road against Washington. The Eagles need to win their final two games of the season in order to keep a shot at the playoffs in sight. Taking on a frustrated Washington team with its own share of problems could serve Philadelphia well.
LeSean McCoy explains the Eagles’ struggles against the Cowboys.
The Eagles may have let the NFC East slip through their fingers down the stretch, which could leave them left out of the postseason. The Dallas Cowboys had a few extra days to prepare for revenge against the Philadelphia Eagles, and perhaps it paid off.
The Eagles handled the Cowboys on Thanksgiving and Dallas wants revenge.
