Wasn’t Pretty; But Eagles Find a Way to Wrap Up NFC #1 Seed with 19-10 Win Over Raiders

After squeaking out victories over two bad teams with Nick Foles under center, the Eagles head into the playoffs with a bright red question mark at football’s most important position.

Coach Doug Peterson decided to spin positive after Philadelphia clinched home-field advantage, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

“We found a way to win. That’s the bottom line,” he said. “We found a way to win. I’d love to win 40-3 or 34-28, but sometimes you’re going to be in these games. We got to be hard on ourselves as coaches and players looking at this film, moving forward, and get things fixed offensively. I thought the defense played really, really well. They kept us in the football game, special teams. [It was a] team effort, though. [We] found a way. [We are] sitting here today 13-2. Everybody’s got to come through here now. That’s the exciting part.”
