Eagles win on third-and-goal from the Eagles 20 with 9:42 left

Philadelphians have seen their team win the last two games in a row and the Eagles will look to keep the streak going in Saturday night’s home game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles are 5-0 all-time against the Eagles but they are 5 1/2 games behind the franchise-record 14-game winning streak.

They’re also the only team that hasn’t lost to Philadelphia in the playoffs since 2008.

The Eagles, though, are 1-3 against the defending Super Bowl champions in the postseason.

Philadelphia coach Andy Reid said the Eagles are excited to get back to the field.

“I thought we got a lot of momentum going on in the last few weeks,” Reid said.

“We’ve been trying to get that momentum going in the right direction and we’re getting closer.

We’re just happy to get in the locker room and play football.”

Reid’s team has lost five of six.

Philadelphia is 4-3-1 at home this season.

Coach Chip Kelly said he expects his team to have some trouble scoring.

“We’re going to have to find a way to score a lot,” Kelly said.

“Our goal is to win the game, and we’ll have to do that.

We’ll get to that goal, but it’s not a guarantee.”

The Eagles will need to find some answers for their defense after allowing a franchise-high 108 yards on 25 carries, including four touchdowns, in their Week 6 loss at the New York Jets.

“They’re a good team,” Reid told reporters on Wednesday.

“I don’t think they have a lot to say.

They play good football, they’re good in the huddle, they are a tough team to play against.

We have to play better defense and get a lot better in the run game.

But it’s a tough schedule, too.”
