After starting the season 0-3, the Houston Texans have been on a roll, winning 10 out of their last 11 games. Bill O'Brien's squad has a tough test Sunday when they visit Philadelphia to face an Eagles squad looking to reach the playoffs with a late surge.

Oddsmakers give Philadelphia the slight edge after their big win on Sunday. The Eagles went on the road in Week 15 and edged the Los Angeles Rams to keep their playoff hopes alive. Philadelphia has won three of their last four games and confidence appears to be building for the defending champions in the tight NFC.

"We know where we’re at and what we need to get done," head coach Doug Pederson said after the win over the Rams. "It’s no different than last week. It’s a one-game season for us, and it’s a resilient group. Backs were against the wall. They came out and played well the other night and we’re going to need that again this week."

The Eagles are back to relying on reserve quarterback Nick Foles, with Carson Wentz sidelined. Foles did a serviceable job against Los Angeles, completing 24 of his 31 passes for 270 yards.

Also out are cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring) and left guard Isaac Seumalo (pectoral), while defensive end Michael Bennett (foot), defensive tackle Tim Jernigan (back), cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc (hamstring) and linebacker D.J. Alexander (hamstring) have been listed as questionable.

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and place kicker Jake Elliott missed Thursday's practice due to illness but are expected to play.

The Texans, who are looking to clinch the AFC South, effectively bounced back from a 24-21 home defeat to the Indianapolis Colts with a 29-22 road win over the New York Jets in Week 15.

Houston would no doubt like a convincing win on the road before they head home to face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 30. Two of the Texans' wins have been in overtime, while four others have been by seven points or less.

The Texans' struggling running game could use a boost and might be without Lamar Miller, who is listed as "day-to-day" with an ankle sprain. There's a chance D'Onta Foreman could make his debut after rehabbing from an Achilles injury.

Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is listed as questionable and so are cornerback Johnathan Joseph (hip), left guard Senio Kelemete (elbow/rib), wide receiver Keke Coutee (hamstring) and nose tackle Brandon Dunn (ankle).

Defensive back Mike Tyson (concussion) is out. Safety Andre Hal's status is unclear with an ankle injury.

Betting Line: Eagles -1.5 points

Over/Under: 46 points

Prediction: This should be a very tight battle. With the game in Philadelphia, and with the Eagles desperate for a win, expect the Eagles defense to step up when it counts.
