At halftime, the Eagles and Raiders are tied at 7-7.

On the Raiders' opening drive, Philadelphia's defense came away with a stop on fourth-and-2 forcing a turnover on downs. The offense took over from its own 42 yard-line.

The Eagles pounded the ball on the ground midway through the first. Running back Corey Clement converted on a fourth-and-1 attempt and Ajayi polished off the drive with a 17-yard touchdown on a screen pass from quarterback Nick Foles. On the score, Ajayi passed 1,000 yards from scrimmage on the season.

The Raiders responded with a score of their own in the second quarter. Quarterback Derek Carr launched one to wide receiver Amari Cooper who beat cornerback Jalen Mills one-on-one on a double move for a 63-yard touchdown down the right sideline.

An offensive holding call against Raiders guard Gabe Jackson negated a 45-yard reception from Cooper that would have placed the Raiders at the Philadelphia 2-yard line. The Eagles were able to force a punt two plays later.

A defensive holding call kept the offense on the field just under the two-minute warning. Kicker Jake Elliott was unable, however, to convert on a 33-yarder to leave the game knotted at 7-7.

The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Oakland Raiders, 19-10. This win clinched home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
