Eager Eagles get back to work after rare win

A quirky schedule meant the Philadelphia Eagles had little time to celebrate a rare win.

Less than 24 hours after Nick Foles led a remarkable 23-21 comeback victory at Tampa Bay, the Eagles (4-9) were back on the practice field for a walkthrough Monday afternoon. With a game against the Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) coming up Thursday night, the Eagles couldn't bask in the glow of their first win in more than two months.

"They don't happen a whole lot, but when they do there is something very special," Foles said of winning. "It's a great feeling for the team. I think the big thing is, it's a great thing for the team sticking together. We can build off of this."

While the Eagles went back to work, at least their frustrated fans had a chance to reflect on some positives for change. The Eagles had lost eight straight games since beating the New York Giants on Sept. 30.
