Jay Ajayi got the Eagles on the board in the first quarter of their Christmas night matchup against the Raiders. As always, win or lose, we hand out 10 awards. The Eagles were able to force a punt two plays later.

It was one thing to lose Carson Wentz for the season with a torn ACL, but one of the main reasons why they Philadelphia was still considered a serious threat was due to other key weapons on offense along with a reliable defense.

Everything Foles does is slower. Jeffery was targeted twice and Crabtree three times.

There was little fluidity from an Eagles offense that had looked like a juggernaut at times this year.

After some shaky moments early, the Eagles' defense won this game.

BIG-PLAY D: The Eagles forced five turnovers in the second half, making one big play after another to bail out the offense.

The Eagles held Carr to 150 passing yards, but it wasn't all good for the secondary. With less than a minute to play in regulation, Darby stepped in front of a pass intended for Amari Cooper, and intercepted Carr, setting up the Eagles for a chance to win with a field goal. Elliott was unable, however, to convert on a 33-yarder, and the game remained knotted at 7-7.

Elliott would later convert on a 45-yard field goal to even the game up at 10-apiece. At the moment, the Vikings appear to be the biggest threat when it comes to taking away home-field advantage from the Eagles, and a loss on Saturday night to the Packers would have resulted in Pederson's team locking up the top seed before Monday's game. The Eagles are now 7-0 at home this season and have a nine-game winning streak at the Linc. The Cowboys are on deck for Week 17.

The defense? Yeah, maybe you let some of those guys rest.

In his worst game of the season, Jeffery had two targets come his way, and he had zero catches, including a bad drop on an ugly (but very catchable) throw from Foles. Ertz led all players in targets and receiving yards on a downright awful offensive night.

The Eagles were also 13-2 in 2004 when they advanced to the Super Bowl. In fact, that was the exact word that coach Jack Del Rio used during his postgame press conference after Week 15 when he stated he was proud of his team's efforts. Their next meaningful game is January 13 or 14 in the playoffs.
