The Eagles look to go 6-5 on the season, and stay alive in the hunt for a Wild Card spot in the NFC Playoffs. We know Nelson Agholor will be inactive for tonight’s game, marking the debut of rookie Paul Turner. We’ll periodically update this thread throughout the game with highlights and drive summaries.
