The Eagles are running to daylight and into the NFC Wild Card playoff race.
They totaled 242 rushing yards – three players going for 60 individually – on the New Orleans Saints, who began the day with the league’s No. 1 rushing defense (72.9 allowed per game).
The Eagles became the first team since the 1978 Patriots to run for at least 175 yards in four consecutive games without a 100-yard rusher in any of them.
The Eagles and Saints are part of an NFC scrum of five teams – each with five wins – vying for the conference’s final two wild cards at the moment.
