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.
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.
The defeat was the Eagles’ third-straight setback, after the Redskins’ Kai Forbath hit a 26-yard field goal with :05 left.

The Philadelphia Eagles will once again be without quarterback Nick Foles when the team takes on the Dallas Cowboys Thursday in Thanksgiving NFC East action. Linebacker Emmanuel Acho is also listed as questionable.
The Eagles were so close to coming home with a record of 6-1, but self-inflicted mistakes and some questionable play calling held the Eagles back. The Eagles were flagged for 11 penalties for 103 yards, they lost the turnover battle (three to one) and went 0-for-3 inside the red zone. Despite all that, the Eagles still came within one play of getting out of Arizona with a win.
The Eagles soar into their bye week with the best record in the NFL. At 5-1, the Eagles are tied for the lead in the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles are now 4-0 at home as well as 2-0 in NFC East play. The Eagles could not be entering the bye week feeling too much better than they do, but challenges await after the week off.
It is going to be tough to digest this loss for Eagles fans. After the special teams scored twice and the defense added another touchdown, the Eagles only needed their offense to reach the end zone once. Normally this is a given for a Chip Kelly offense, but that was not the case on Sunday.
With Mychael Kendricks out of commission for Sunday, the Eagles will have to hope for the best from Emmanuel Acho or Casey Matthews. Acho has not been seen on the team’s official depth chart but he may be able to get the start over Matthews.
Brent Celek talked about the success young Eagles TE Zach Ertz is having.
The first half of the season was a complete disaster for Philadelphia. Turnovers on the first two drives of the game were followed by three straight punts and an interception before halftime. The offensive line got banged up with injuries and running back LeSean McCoy was a non-factor. Fortunately for the Eagles, the second half was much better.
The Eagles had every reason to panic, but they came back for the win.
