Eagles' Bradford, Mathews may sit Sunday
PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles could be without three key offensive players when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday in a game critical to their chances in the NFC East.
Quarterback Sam Bradford, running back Ryan Mathews and left tackle Jason Peters all missed practice Thursday, making it tenuous at best that they will play against the Bucs.
An Eagles win would move them to 5-5 and into a first-place tie with the New York Giants in the division. New York has a bye.
The Eagles beat the Giants 27-7 earlier this season.
Washington also is 4-5 in the division and plays unbeaten Carolina on Sunday.
