With their 20-16 victory over the Washington Football Team at FedEx Field, the Philadelphia Eagles inched closer to securing a playoff berth. With the victory, the Eagles improved to 9-7 and can lock up a postseason spot if the Minnesota Vikings (without Kirk Cousins) and New Orleans Saints lose later this weekend.

In the victory, quarterback Jalen Hurts was kept relatively clean, and played a relatively clean game. He completed 17 of 26 passes for 214 yards, without a touchdown or interception, and was sacked just once. He also had seven carries for 44 yards.

Whatever works. And with a little help, it might all add up to a playoff berth for Philadelphia.
