Sports are a funny thing. Regardless of which game we're playing, at some point, we'll always talk about winning streaks and losing skids. The Philadelphia Eagles have done a lot of winning under Nick Sirianni, but that doesn't matter much to the Birds contingent right now. All they seemingly want to talk about lately, most of them anyway, is the current two-game losing streak.
Speaking of losing streaks, Philly travels to the Pacific Northwest to tackle the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15. They have dropped seven straight versus those 'other birds' (and nine of the last ten meetings). It's time to turn the tide.
Philly may have found a new groove after this one. Let's hope that's the case. Matt Patricia will call the plays on defense. A win would go a long way in instilling confidence.
Eagles injury news: Philadelphia is down three starters.
