The Eagles enter Week 11 on a two-game win streak with a shot of taking the division lead. With the Cowboys on a bye, an Eagles win against the Redskins would essentially put a ton of pressure on Dallas. The Eagles and Cowboys are tied but with a Philadelphia home win, Dallas would be forced to bounce back after a loss to the Saints.
If the Eagles could go on bye in Week 12 off a three-game win streak, they would be in great shape to make the playoffs. Nick Foles had a good performance against the Packers, but this need be a big game for him. The Redskins defense is awful, so Foles and Chip Kelly need to take advantage and build a major lead. The defense will also need to keep performing well in order to shun the Redskins at home.
