Nick Foles left the game with a chest injury in the fourth quarter.

Eagles need win, help from Bears to extend season
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles need to win and get help to keep playing and have a chance to defend their Super Bowl title.
All the Washington Redskins can do now is play spoiler.
It's do-or-die for the Eagles (8-7) when they visit the Redskins (7-8) on Sunday. A victory coupled with a loss by the Vikings (8-6-1) at home against the Bears (11-4) gives Philadelphia the final wild-card spot and the NFC's No. 6 seed. A loss sends them on an early vacation.

"I don't regret nothing, because I know I gave 100 percent effort from my heart," Swearinger said.
The Redskins later Monday sent out a release with the transaction.

Jags’ latest odd call: Fournette on sideline in crunch time

Redskins are unraveling amid four-game losing streak
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have lost four in a row, are down to their fourth quarterback and are mired in criticism from several players.
