while the Eagles were expected to improve while remaining a middling team. Instead,They’re very different teams, late into a season that has been very kind to the Eagles and very rough for the Raiders. Oakland was expected to be among the elite teams this year, the Raiders are nearly out of playoff contention and the Eagles are dominant.

Oakland isn’t in control of its own destiny. They are 6-8, and on the outside looking in as far as the AFC playoff picture is concerned. They need to win their final two games and they need some other stuff to go right. Quarterback Derek Carr has been average this year,Womens Fletcher Cox Jersey, while the rest of the team has struggled around him.

can clinch the top seed in the NFC with a win on Monday. They have already secured a first-round bye,Philadelphia, meanwhile, but have to contend with the Minnesota Vikings for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Raiders got Bruce Irvin and Amari Cooper back at practice on Thursday. The team expects Cooper will return.

Oakland has been hit hard by injuries this year. Just this week, they placed two players on injured reserve — Jon Feliciano and Donald Penn — and signed two others. As of Saturday,Womens Ronald Darby Jersey, you can add Clive Walford to the list of players going to injured reserve.

The final Raiders injury report has David Amerson as doubtful and Mario Edwards Jr. listed as out for Monday’s game.

” at least according to recent reports. It’s definitely been a disappointing season for Raiders fans.,Oakland is likely to fire Todd Downing this offseason, while Jack Del Rio, the head coach, is considered a “coin flip

The Eagles could have clinched the top see in the NFC with a Packers upset of the Vikings on Saturday. They didn’t get that, though, so they’ll have to hope for a win to clinch.

In Philadelphia’s final injury report, they listed Stefen Wisniewski, Jalen Mills and Mychal Kendricks as questionable for Monday’s game.

was their best and most consistent offensive lineman last year and this offseason they paid him like the left tackle of the future. If he's suspended,Johnson, 26, he won't even be the right tackle of the present.

So what's the plan if Johnson misses 10 games? Well, here's a look:

Jason Kelce,Right now the offensive line (if healthy) looks like this, from left to right: Jason Peters, Johnson. , Allen Barbre, Brandon Brooks

The most obvious and easiest solution would be to just plug in second-team right tackle Dennis Kelly. Kelly has 15 career starts and nine have come at right tackle — two came last season.

it could slide Tobin over,While Kelly has been the second-team right tackle, Matt Tobin is the team's second-team left tackle. Tobin will fill in for Peters (quad) at left tackle in the first preseason game. If the team doesn't want to put Kelly at right tackle, or it could completely keep Tobin and Kelly off the field.

Barbre is slated to start at left guard for the second straight year, but has eight career starts at right tackle.

and his 77 career starts,So if the Eagles want,Authentic Torrey Smith Jersey, they could slide Barbre out to right tackle and bring in solid veteran Stefen Wisniewski, in to start at left guard. This makes sense because it seems the Eagles have much better depth at guard with Wisniewski than at tackle with Tobin or Kelly.

Sure, this scenario would mean some shifting, but it might be a way to get the five best remaining offensive linemen on the field together.

but has been the third-team left tackle in practice. He won the starting right guard job out of training camp a year ago,Aside from Tobin, Kelly and Barbre, Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey,but has clearly been behind Tobin and Kelly during the 2016 training camp. , the team doesn't have much depth at tackle. Andrew Gardner is recovering from Lisfranc surgery (see story), but is probably more of a natural tackle. He's an option

Then, the team has a fifth-round pick in Halapoulivaati Vaitai, but the rookie doesn't quite seem ready for game action. Malcolm Bunche (practice squad in 2015) and undrafted Dillon Gordon don't seem like great options either.

Perhaps the team will pick someone up off the waiver wire after cuts, or try to make a trade, but there aren't a bunch of decent offensive tackles growing on trees.

The scariest thing about a Johnson suspension is the somewhat likely scenario that Peters can't stay on the field. At 34 years old, Peters isn't the player he once was, had injury trouble last year and already has a quad injury that will keep him out for the first preseason game.

If he gets hurt during Johnson's suspension, Gardner, the Eagles could have any combination of Tobin, Kelly,Authentic Brian Winters Jersey, blocking elite NFL pass-rushers as Sam Bradford desperately tries to stay healthy. ,Authentic Timmy Jernigan Jersey, Barbre, a rookie or someone who isn't on the team yet

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is admittedly in the twilight of his career so Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks eliminating them from the postseason was undoubtedly hard to swallow, but that didn’t stop him from making a relatively immediate decision about his future.

devour the strawberries,“I got a great support system. The next half hour just take a few deep breaths,Authentic Ronald Darby Jersey, try to process it and enjoy the moment, so to speak. I wish I could tell you that it would be easy. Having a good wife helps. I’ve been fortunate.

“I’ve lived the dream here for the last 15 years with this organization. Great ownership, great coaches and great opportunity. Disappointed that we couldn’t get it done this year.”

Despite all that,Authentic Fletcher Cox Jersey, his current plan is to keep playing.

“I see too much positive,Womens Torrey Smith Jersey,Womens Jalen Mills Jersey,” Witten said. “I really do. I feel too good to think that would end, so my intentions are to keep playing.”

Witten will conclude his 15th season next Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, the 35-year-old remains under contract through 2021. So he could theoretically play for four more seasons, though a Cowboys championship would be the ideal send-off for the future Hall of Fame candidate.

The Raiders enter Week 16 against the Eagles on the heels of a disappointing loss to the Cowboys in what will forever be dubbed the “index card game” after referee Gene Steratore’s shenanigans. But it wasn’t just biased officiating that cost Oakland Week 15. Quarterback Derek Carr fumbled away his team’s chances of victory over the pylon with under one minute left to go in regulation.

After the Eagles lost quarterback Carson Wentz for the year in Week 14, few expected them to look as good as they did Sunday. However, Philadelphia didn’t miss a beat with backup QB Nick Foles stepped in to throw four touchdown passes in a 34-29 victory over the Giants.

The Eagles didn’t have to do much to adjust their game plan to suit Nick Foles, who becomes the latest in a long succession of players that demonstrates just how dated and terrible of a scheme former Rams coach Jeff Fisher was running before he was terminated.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson remained aggressive with Foles to good effect, and there is no reason he won’t continue to do so against a Raiders defense. It’s been porous all season despite its recent improvement rushing the passer under assistant head coach-defense John Pagano.

Oakland also placed a total of three players on the injured reserve list this week, including starting left tackle Donald Penn, who was just selected as a starter for the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl.

With their 23-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, the New Orleans Saints ended their four-year playoff drought. Next week’s regular-season finale will help determine whether the Saints are NFC South champions or a wild-card entry. Regardless, they have shown they just might be the most dangerous team in the NFC.

Philadelphia doesn’t pose the same threat. And although they boast a dominant defense and efficient offense,Sure, the Eagles and Vikings both have 12 wins — one more than the Saints — but with Carson Wentz no longer leading the way, the Vikings still have a couple chinks in their armor.

As the regular season draws to a close, you can make the argument that no NFC squad appears as equipped for a deep postseason run as the Saints.

Drew Brees will burn you through the air. Start concentrating on limiting the passing game,The New Orleans offense ranks among the best. Not only do the Saints have a future Hall of Fame quarterback, but they also have a pair of platooning Pro Bowl running backs to ensure exceptional balance. Key on the ground attack, and Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram gash you from the backfield.

Not only do the Saints average 4.7 yards per carry, but they also lead the league with 22 rushing touchdowns.

recording two takeaways and five sacks while denying the Falcons on 11 of 13 third downs.,Authentic Jalen Mills Jersey,Yet against Atlanta, it was the New Orleans defense — led by linebackers Craig Robertson and Manti Te'o, edge rusher Cameron Jordan and rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore — that shined brightest. The unit played at an elite level, producing two goal-line stands

Against the Panthers, who were already swept by the Saints, New Orleans’ offense holds the edge — just way more consistent and well rounded than up-and-down Cam Newton and Co. You’d take the Saints over the Falcons nine times out of 10 for the same reasons.

Minnesota's defense is superior, but if the game comes down to a shootout, Brees holds the edge over Case Keenum. And the Eagles now appear a tick below the Vikings both defensively and under center.

and the experience that New Orleans boasts could make a difference,The Rams did beat New Orleans at the Los Angeles Coliseum in Week 12, and Todd Gurley leads a rushing attack capable of rivaling the Saints’. But things kick up a notch in the postseason, especially if it comes down to Brees vs. Jared Goff in a pressure situation.

and Russell Wilson basically being a one-man show on offense,Seattle remains in the hunt, and the Seahawks also have impressive postseason experience. But with the defense battered, New Orleans wins this matchup on paper as well.

The San Francisco 49ers gave the rest of the league the blueprint for beating the red-hot Jaguars on Sunday. Because of that, Jacksonville should be concerned about its chances for longevity in the postseason.

The Niners jumped on the Jags early, going up 16-0. Forced to play from behind, Jacksonville had to scrap its run-heavy calling card and put an inordinate workload on the shoulders of quarterback Blake Bortles.

Yes, Bortles had been the NFL's hottest quarterback this month. But he’s still not the guy you want throwing on every play. A strong rushing game and aggressive defense are his two best friends. But forced to stray from their offensive recipe — and with the defense on its heels as the 49ers extended one drive after another — the Jaguars struggled.

the 49ers were 10-for-15 on third downs,Bortles did rack up 382 passing yards and two touchdowns and did so while spreading the ball around to nine pass-catchers. But he also threw three interceptions. The Jags struggled on third downs in particular, converting just five of 13. Meanwhile, effectively wearing down the Jaguars defense.

causing doubts that Caldwell will make it to a fifth season in Detroit despite signing a contract extension this past offseason. He is regarded as a good coach in NFL circles,Caldwell guided Detroit to the postseason in 2014 and 2016, but the Lions lose in the wild-card round both times. Then this year's team underachieved, however his players haven’t responded consistently.

— A 16-point loss to Washington on Sunday ensured Vance Joseph double-digit defeats in his first season as head coach in Denver, and next week could conclude his tenure with the Broncos. The quarterback situation has been a disaster, a talented defense has underachieved,Womens Brian Winters Jersey, and Joseph has long appeared to be in over his head.
