The spiraling Philadelphia Eagles are no longer among the NFL’s elite

But the end of the regular season is a great time for the remaining Super Bowl contenders to improve and stand out.

The Philadelphia Eagles, who had lost their previous two games, could have won Monday in Seattle against the Seahawks. 

When Seattle was down four points, all they had to do was stop them from going 92 yards in less than two minutes.

Eagles fans are quick to find fault with almost anything, so they probably wouldn't have gone too crazy if Philadelphia had pulled off a thrilling win. 

It wasn't like Seattle's quarterback was the starter; Drew Lock had only started two games in two seasons.

The Eagles' beleaguered defense, led Monday for the first time by Bill Belichick protegee and former Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia.

Guess what. Seattle got 92 yards in 10 plays from Lock with 28 seconds left. His rainy touchdown pass to wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba was 29 yards.
