1. Philadelphia Eagles Need Consistent QB Play

The Philadelphia Eagles will go as far as quarterback Sam Bradford goes. In the first half, Bradford couldn’t get anything going which has been the theme for most of the season. The team was going three and out as usual which led to the run game being shutdown. The Eagles for whatever reason refused to go deep against a banged up Washington secondary in the first half. Flat out, Bradford stunk.

The second half was a completely different story. Sam threw three touchdown passes, and two of them were perfect bombs to receivers Riley Cooper and Miles Austin. The team finally decided to take shots down field and Sam was hitting them. The offense looked a lot better and the run game started to open up as well. If Bradford can just play like he did in the second half for four quarters, the Eagles might not lose very many games. The offense has really been the achilles heel of the team.
