Two NFC East teams going in different directions will face off on Saturday, but there is still a lot to prove. The Philadelphia Eagles need to make sure they earn a spot in the playoffs. The Washington Redskins have a quarterback controversy that is getting more confusing each week. Steve Beuerlein of CBS Sports spoke on the game and troubles facing both teams.
Rumors are flying that the San Francisco 49ers might trade Head Coach Jim Harbaugh to the Oakland Raiders, and that’s just the icing on the cake for this Bay Area rivalry. The 49ers need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the Silver & Black just need something to forget that beating they just took from the St. Louis Rams. The Sunday game at the Coliseum promises to be quite interesting.
The Philadelphia Eagles head into Dallas for a Thanksgiving Day battle with the Dallas Cowboys and Bennie Logan already started talking trash, dismissing the Cowboys’ offensive line.
The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles sit tied atop the NFC East and battle on Thanksgiving Day for the division lead. Here is a look at the Eagles profile heading into the big game.
The 4-7 St. Louis Rams may seem to be weak at first glance, but as coached by long-time NFL man Jeff Fisher, the team once referred to as the “Lambs” is anything but right now.

From players to referees to fans, everyone is getting in on the Week 9 action…but maybe not in the way they imagined. Here’s 5 people who were in the right (or wrong) place at the right time…
When the 49ers play a solid game as a team they are tough to beat. They took on an undefeated Eagles team and if not for 49er mistakes, would have blown out the road team. Even with several early mistakes, the 49ers rebounded and earned a hard fought win over a serious playoff contender.
San Francisco continues to get player back, and just in time. This week they face an Eagles team that is undefeated, and the 49ers need a win. Philadelphia will be without a few offensive lineman so San Francisco will look to take advantage and win th battle of the trenches.
For the 49ers to avoid a 3 game losing streak they will have to beat the Philadelphia Eagles. San Francisco should be able to win, especially at home, but not if they play like they have the past two weeks.
Jeremy Maclin is not going to have to be Jerry Rice or Terrell Owens. He merely needs to be a receiver for Nick Foles, while the tight ends help chip in the rest of the production in the passing game.
