One of the obvious storylines for the Eagles' game against the Oakland Raiders on Monday is Nick Foles facing the team against which he had his greatest accomplishment 鈥 throwing seven touchdown passes, tying an NFL record.

well, new coaches, new,A lot has happened to both teams since then 鈥 new quarterback prodigies, just about everything.

But there is one other storyline that perhaps has been overlooked by the Eagles' euphoric run to a 12-2 season, a run they're trying to continue without starting quarterback Carson Wentz:

The Raiders themselves went through this same scenario last season,Womens Brandon Graham Jersey, where they lost their franchise quarterback Derek Carr to a season-ending injury when he broke his leg in the second to last game of the season.

It didn't go well at all.

Oakland lost its season finale to the Denver Broncos. The loss cost the Raiders the AFC West title, thus forcing them into the Wild Card round,The next week,Womens Brent Celek Jersey, even though they had a 12-4 record.

the same quarterback who was with the Eagles during training camp, then released). So the Raiders traveled to Houston for their playoff game,It also cost them their backup quarterback in Matt McGloin (yes,Womens Jason Peters Jersey, with third-string quarterback Connor Cook taking over.

They lost 27-14 to the Houston Texans and their season that had Super Bowl hopes was over.

That provides the Eagles with a cautionary tale as they head into a postseason with high expectations.

of course, is much better than McGloin,Foles,Womens Rodney McLeod Jersey, meaning the Eagles are better equipped to handle Wentz's injury than the Raiders were last season 鈥 as long as Foles stays healthy.

Foles has started 37 games in his six-year career, with 60 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions. His career quarterback rating is 88.9. That's better than many NFL starters.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was asked how the team tried to adapt without Carr:

" Del Rio said. "I think the Eagles have a tremendous football team. Nick Foles is very capable. He's got plenty of experience,"You just focus on the parts of your team that are really good, played very well in the first game leading the team last week."

Del Rio was referring to the Eagles' 34-29 win over the Giants in which Foles rallied the Eagles back from a 13-point deficit in the second quarter. Foles threw four touchdown passes without an interception.

Still,Womens Nigel Bradham Jersey, the Eagles struggled to beat a Giants team that was 2-11 heading into the game.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson chalked that up to a lot of things... other than barely beating a team that had given up on the season, whose abysmal offense torched the Eagles defense for 504 total yards.

instead, cited fatigue from playing three straight games on the road,Pederson, and the intensity from a rivalry game. The Pederson said this:

we were in a dogfight,"The beauty of it is," Pederson said. "We needed to be in a dogfight the other day ... It's going to happen. Offense might be sluggish and the defense has to step up. Last week it was the offense coming through. That's the beauty of football and team sports. But we were in a dogfight. We figured out how to win the game."

winning 43-35. And they were in a dogfight the week before that against Seattle,The Eagles were also in a dogfight the week before against the Rams, losing 24-10.

Do they need another dogfight against the Raiders, who are 6-8?

Here is another cautionary tale: Carr is healthy this season. He has a good core around him. The Raiders were expected to build off of last season and become a contending team for many years to come.

So are the Eagles once Wentz is ready to play next season.

What went wrong for the Raiders? Del Rio answered in coach-speak:

and earn the victories, and a lot of preparation goes into it, and then it comes down to the teams that execute the best,"The biggest thing is you get these opportunities for these games that you play," he said. "We just haven't earned enough this year."

That's another way of saying success isn't guaranteed.

That brings us back to Foles' game for the ages against the Raiders. Soon after, former Eagles coach Chip Kelly proclaimed Foles the starter for "the next thousand years."

Foles was traded a year and a half later. He lost his starting job in St. Louis late in the 2015 season, then spent last season as a backup in Kansas City and this season as a backup to Wentz.

Riley Cooper,Kelly was fired twice since then and is now back to coaching in college. Foles' top receiver that day, had 139 yards and three touchdowns. He was released after the 2015 season and hasn't played in the NFL since.

Terrelle Pryor was the Raiders' quarterback that day. He had 288 yards passing and 94 yards rushing. He's now a wide receiver.

the Eagles should make the most out of this playoff run, even without Wentz,In other words, because there are no guarantees that it will happen again.

leaving the club at 6-8 and requiring plenty of help over the last two weeks to make a miracle return to the playoffs. That didn鈥檛 happen,Oakland鈥檚 postseason hopes took a major hit with last week鈥檚 loss to the Cowboys, and now the best the team can hope for is to trip up the Eagles and Chargers as 2017 comes to a close.

Philadelphia鈥檚 season hasn鈥檛 had nearly as much drama. The Eagles were supposed to stumble after losing MVP candidate Carson Wentz to a torn ACL two weeks ago, but Nick Foles proved a capable replacement after slinging four touchdown passes against the Giants. Another big performance Monday will ensure the NFC鈥檚 road to the Super Bowl runs through Pennsylvania.

the Raiders were driving on the Cowboys with their playoff hopes in the balance. Quarterback Derek Carr scrambled right and dove for the pylon, then he let go of the ball so that it bounced over the goal line and out of the end zone. By rule,A few hours later, it was a Raiders turnover and a touchback for the Cowboys.

If Nick Foles is successful as the Eagles鈥 quarterback,Authentic Brandon Graham Jersey, it won鈥檛 be the first time.

Donovan McNabb,The Eagles embarrassed the Raiders 49-20 when Foles tied an NFL record for the most touchdowns in a single game with seven. He joined elite company 鈥 Brett Favre, and Tom Brady 鈥 as the only quarterbacks to throw for 250 yards and four touchdowns and preserve a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3 at the half.

Rodney Hudson played every snap of last week鈥檚 game despite a kidney stone,Authentic Brent Celek Jersey, which is a toughness I don鈥檛 even want to consider

鈥淚 want to relay a story about incredible grit and toughness and determination to be there for his teammates yesterday,Authentic Brandon Brooks Jersey,鈥 Del Rio said to lead out his Monday press conference. 鈥淩odney Hudson yesterday had a kidney stone that he was having significant pain with in the lead-up to the game and he was able to somehow tough it out. . .

and Nelson Agholor has more receiving yards this year than his previous two years combined. He has the second most touchdown receptions on the team with 8, tied with Zach Ertz,Authentic Jason Peters Jersey,We are 14 games into the season, and only one TD behind Alshon Jeffery. He has a career high 13.1 yards per reception and more games with a TD catch than without this year.

Oakland was in great position to topple the Cowboys at home. Derek Carr was trailing 20-17 and had driven his team to the Dallas 8-yard line with just 31 seconds left when he scrambled right and cut toward the end zone. As Jeff Heath met him to push him out of bounds, Carr extended the ball toward the goal line 鈥 and fumbled it through the end zone and out of bounds.

All the Philadelphia Eagles need to ensure they stay home in January is one more win.

A victory over the Oakland Raiders (6-8) on Monday night secures the NFC鈥檚 No. 1 seed for the Eagles (12-2) and gives coach Doug Pederson an opportunity to rest his starters in Week 17.

First,Authentic Rodney McLeod Jersey, they have to beat the Raiders.

I鈥檒l make a decision at that time, if we鈥檙e fortunate enough to be in that position, to rest,鈥淚f we鈥檙e in that position,Authentic Nigel Bradham Jersey,鈥 Pederson said.

one quarter, maintain the aggressiveness. If it鈥檚 one play, one series,Womens Brandon Brooks Jersey,鈥淏ut I think it鈥檚 important here in these next couple of games that we continue to play. I think it鈥檚 important to maintain the edge, I鈥檒l make that decision at that time.鈥

Players and coaches will have an unusual game day because it鈥檚 Christmas. Pederson is allowing the guys to spend the morning with their families before they report for work.

so I鈥檓 giving them an opportunity,鈥淚 think it鈥檚 important that they spend time with their families Christmas morning,鈥 Pederson said. 鈥淚 pushed the schedule back just a little bit. We don鈥檛 play obviously till 8.

coaches with young kids, you don鈥檛 get these times back. You don鈥檛 get them back. It鈥檚 too important to me, my family. I want to make sure these players with young kids,鈥淟isten, they get a chance to spend Christmas morning together.鈥

including a long trip to the West Coast, a former backup quarterback, is a players鈥 coach. He gets it. So after the Eagles returned to practice after three consecutive road games,Pederson, he cut back on their workload.

The extra day to prepare for Oakland gave Pederson a chance to rest some banged-up players earlier in the week.

鈥淚 just make sure I communicate with the players and see how they feel, too, and then just monitor some of the GPS stuff that we鈥檙e doing (with sports science), see where they鈥檙e at, tracking data that鈥檚 out there that we have and then just overall injuries,鈥 Pederson said.

giving them that extra rest, staying off their feet,鈥淭he health of the football team overall. Listening to players and things of that nature, more up-tempo walkthrough practices this week. It鈥檚 been good. Guys are feeling good. We鈥檝e just got to keep guys fresh and healthy.鈥

Resting players is a priority because the Eagles have suffered a slew of injuries to key players. Carson Wentz was having an MVP-caliber season when he tore his ACL in Week 14.

middle linebacker Jordan Hicks,Nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, return specialist Darren Sproles and special teams ace Chris Maragos also have sustained season-ending injuries.
