The Eagles are finally back in Philadelphia after playing on the road for the last three weeks. Indeed, the Eagles are home for Christmas. You can count on them.
Tonight’s game obviously features a big opportunity for the Birds. A win over the Oakland Raiders would mean clinching the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoff picture. The road to the Super Bowl will go through Philadelphia.
Jolly Old Saint Nick Foles will be looking to have another strong outing against a Raiders defense that isn’t very great. The Eagles could also really use a bounce back performance from their defense.
It’s hard to think of a much better Christmas gift than an Eagles win. Here’s hoping they make the Philadelphia faithful very happy tonight.
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
