5 Philadelphia Eagles Who Must Improve to Keep Slim Playoff Hopes Alive
Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

With a 3-5 record after Week 9 of the 2012 NFL season, the Philadelphia Eagles find themselves in a very familiar and unwelcoming position. 

It was exactly one year ago that Andy Reid's squad struggled its way to a 3-5 start, only to finish the second half of the season 5-3 and miss the playoffs by a slim margin. While the Eagles will surely have to win more than five games to prevent another near miss, all hope is not yet lost.
