    The Philadelphia Eagles came into the game with a chance to capture it's 3rd division title for Coach Lazaroe. Lazaroe will be leaving Philadelphia for warmer, sunnier weather down in Tampa, Florida. But not just yet. The Eagles hosted the St. Louis Rams tied for the division lead with the New York Giants, who they had previously swept during the course of the season. The Rams, in last place in the NFC West, would put up an early fight and QB Sam Bradford would drive his team down the field on a beautiful opening drive. The Rams took an early 7-0 lead on what was at least a 10 play drive. The Eagles however would soon strike, when on the first play from scrimmage QB Ryan Tannehill would find WR Jeremy Maclin. Maclin was able to break a tackle and scamper 89 yards for the game tieing touchdown. From there Philadelphia's defense really turned it on. They would pick off Bradford 4 times during the game and pressure him constantly. Lasean McCoy carried the ball 17 times for 93 yards, while RB Dion Lewis added 4 carries of his own for 34 yards. Tannehill would finish the game with a 151.0 QBR, going 11 of 16 for 220 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. The Eagles would eventually pull away from the Rams and win the ball game, 34-17. In doing so they secured their 3rd NFC East title under coach Lazaroe's regime and have no doubt been the dominant team in this division. They're not done yet, however. They now will wait their fate and see who they will host. It will most likely either be the New Orleans Saints or the Chicago Bears, the team who beat the Eagles in the NFC Championship a couple years back. Either way, it has been a great run for Lazaroe and he definitely looks forward to going out with a bang in Philly and also new adventure in Tampa.
