PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — It's Christmas time in South Philadelphia and Eagles fans are making a list they hope St. Nick can deliver to them.

Many of the tailgaters at the Eagles versus Texans game are writing their Christmas wish list to the Birds' backup and now starting quarterback Nick Foles, and they hope he can deliver.
 
Dave from Bethlehem said what he would like to see is "a trip to the playoffs, trip to the playoffs that's what I want." 

Kyle from Allentown said for him, "Nick Foles taking us back to the Chip. I'd love it. I'd love it. Underdogs, baby." 
 
As for Kevin from Allentown, his hope is "another Superbowl, why not?" 
 
The sunshine and moderate temperature is not typical of December football weather, but fans say it's a sign of brighter days to come for the Eagles who are fighting to stay in the playoff race.
 
"It's exciting, Nick is back in the saddle, and we're ready for a playoff push," said Eagles fan Brian. 
 
Due to a season that's been full of lots of ups and downs, the Eagles need a little bit of Christmas magic if they hope to make another Super Bowl run.
