The losing streak is over. The Philadelphia Eagles are back on the winning side in a tale of two halves. The Eagles dominated the Redskins in the first half, jumping out to a 20-3 lead at halftime but failed to score any points in the second half.
The Eagles defense played its best game of the season, holding the Redskins to just 42 rushing yards for their best effort of the season. Kurt Coleman and LeSean McCoy both had big games along with Jeremy Maclin.
The Eagles will head into the bye week still with a lot of work to do. The offense is still inconsistent, the defense still can't cover the tight ends, and turnovers are still a major issue.
They are still in a great position to get back into contention in the NFC with three straight home games after the bye week against the Cowboys, Bears and Cardinals. If they can take care of business at home, they would be 5-4 with a 2-1 record in the division.
It wasn't always pretty, but the Eagles got a much-needed win and saved their season.
