Here's what the Eagles need to do beat the Redskins and keep their season alive

The Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins are set to play a big game tonight on the Saturday edition of Thursday Night Football. It's absolutely a must-win affair for the Birds. Philadelphia will be eliminated with a loss and Washington can clinch the division with a victory. Here are three keys to an Eagles win in this do-or-die game.

1) Air it out

You can bet Kirk Cousins will be looking to connect deep with DeSean Jackson quite a few times in this game. The Eagles might not have a vertical threat like Jackson, but that shouldn't stop them from airing it out in this game.
