Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column forecasts doom for the Philadelphia Eagles, the top seed in the NFC. Two weeks removed from Carson Wentz’s season-ending ACL tear, the Eagles bested the Raiders in an incredibly ugly 19-10 win. The Eagles recorded a measly 37 yards gained in the second half against Oakland, and the game did nothing to inspire fan confidence in replacement QB Nick Foles. Despite owning home field advantage throughout the playoffs, the Eagles will have to muster enough offense to beat some combination of the Saints, Panthers, Rams, and Vikings, a prospect King finds unlikely. The Wentz injury is likely to haunt Eagles fans well into 2018.
