During the Eagles’ Super Bowl run, (under)dog masks were all the rage in Philadelphia.
Now it’s all about ski masks as the Eagles try to steal a playoff spot with just two weeks remaining in the regular season.

Part of the reason why there’s hope for the Eagles is that they’ve been forcing turnovers in recent weeks. They’ve snatched six takeaways in their last two games. The defense is getting their swagger back.
“That’s something we started two weeks ago,” McLeod said, via PhillyVoice. “It’s kind of been motivating the guys. It’s just a mentality we’ve been having. When we go out there, we put the mask on. We’re out there for business, and to take what’s ours. If that means getting wins, if that means taking the ball, making plays, anytime someone makes a turnover they put the mask on. We say it’s robbing season. It’s thievery. Hopefully the fans come out next week and wear the masks with us in the stands. That’d be cool. It’s just something to motivate us as a defense, and the entire team. Guys are kind of rallying behind it, and you see us making plays these last two weeks, so it’s working.”
