The Eagles ended an 0-2 post-bye run with a come-from-behind

n over the Giants. Now at 5-6 , the Eagles suddenly have new life in the NFC East.“It’s still right there in front of us,” coach Doug Pederson told PFT after the 25-22 victory.Indeed it is. And even though the Eagles can win the division by running the table, Pederson said that he doesn’t want the team to talk about playoff scenarios and to focus instead on “going 1-0 each week.”Despite a 19-3 first-half deficit, Pederson said he never felt like the game was getting away from his team.“It didn’t feel like we were being shut down,” Pederson said, pointing for example to a 52-yard touchdown run by Josh Adams that was called back due to a penalty.“We were shooting ourselves in the foot,” Pederson said.Pederson said the turnaround came when safety Malcolm Jenkins intercepted Giants quarterback Eli Manning late in the first half. In the second half, the young defensive backs who have been pressed into service bounced back after a rough first half , which helped slow down the New York offense.A running game led by Josh Adams has helped open up the entire offense, as Pederson explained it. And now the Eagles can try to chase a win over the Giants with a visit from Washington and a trip to Dallas. Sure, a couple of tough games are looming against the Rams and Texans, but there’s a chance that the Eagles will enter a Week 17 game at Washington with the division title in their grasp. A couple weeks ago, it would have been reasonable to say the Super Bowl champion Eagles were no longer contenders to repeat. At the end of this week, the Eagles may own a share of first place.Week 13 represents a crucial week for the Eagles, and their last, best chance to put themselves back into position to get to the playoffs and Womens Joe Looney Jersey , perhaps, repeat as Super Bowl champions: Philadelphia is currently 5-6, a game behind 6-5 Dallas and Washington, but with Dallas a 7.5-point underdog against New Orleans tonight, and with Philadelphia a 6.5-point favorite at home against Washington on Monday night, the Eagles are actually favored to be in a three-way tie for first place at 6-6 at the end of Week 13.That would set up a Week 14 game at Dallas as a very big one, with the Eagles moving a game ahead of the Cowboys, and earning the tiebreaker advantage Youth Kavon Frazier Jersey , with a win.The Eagles’ schedule doesn’t get any easier after that, with a trip to Los Angeles to take on the Rams, followed by a home game against the Texans and a trip to Washington to finish the season. But the Eagles control their destiny in the NFC East: Win out and they win the division.That looked like a pipe dream a couple weeks ago. The Eagles lost at home to the Cowboys, then got blown out 48-7 against the Saints. They were 4-6 and seemed unlikely to catch either Dallas or Washington, let alone both of them.But the Alex Smith injury cast a pall over Washington’s season, and the schedule gives the Eagles a chance to win at Dallas and even things up with the Cowboys. The defending champions have not played as well this year as they did last year, but they’re not done yet. Custom Houston Texans Jerseys
