With the Philadelphia Eagles sitting at 9-6, and with their chances of making the playoffs in jeopardy, many people are talking about the fact that they may not have a chance.
If that is the case, there are a few things the Eagles should be focusing on:1.
A playoff spot is more likely with an 8-8 record.
This year, they are tied with the New York Jets for the worst record in the league with an 11-35-2 record.
If the Eagles can get the team back to .500 by the end of the season, it would put them in a position to make a run for the playoffs.2.
Winning a playoff game is easier than it looks.
The Eagles have lost three games by a combined score of over 35 points.
If they could make the postseason, that would put the team on a strong path to making a run in the AFC East, the NFC North, and perhaps the playoffs for the first time since 2002.3.
The team’s lack of focus is making it difficult for them to win games.
The Philadelphia Eagles lost six games in a row starting in January.
It is easy to blame the team’s struggles on injuries, but injuries can only take a team so far.
The lack of success this year has put pressure on coach Doug Pederson and his coaching staff.
The only thing that has allowed the team to continue winning games is the fact they have a winning record.4.
The franchise has had to deal with injuries to several key players.
The majority of the Eagles injuries have been to wide receivers, which is not surprising when you consider how the Eagles are relying on their big, physical wide receivers.5.
There are questions surrounding whether or not the Eagles will be able to make it back to the playoffs after the bye week.
The playoffs is a long shot, and the Eagles have a very good chance of making it back in the playoffs, but they have to take a step back from what they are doing right now and focus on what they have done well.
