Eagles

So you’re telling us there’s a chance.

Yeah, a small one, but there’s a chance the Eagles can still make the playoffs.

Here’s what has to happen:

NFC East

The Eagles (6-7) need to win their remaining games against the Rams, the Texans and the Redskins.

The Eagles would need the Dallas Cowboys (8-5) to lose all of their remaining games against the Colts, Buccaneers and Giants.

The Eagles would win the NFC East with a record of 9-7 to the Cowboys' 8-8.

The wild card

The Eagles would likely need to win their remaining games against the Rams, the Texans and the Redskins to jump two of the teams ahead of them. Should the Eagles win only two of their remaining games, add one additional loss to the teams below.

The Eagles would need the Seahawks (7-5) to lose three of their remaining four games to NFC opponents, the Vikings, the 49ers and the Cardinals.

The Eagles would need the Vikings (6-5-1) to lose two of their remaining four games to the Seahawks, Dolphins, Lions and Bears.

The Eagles would need the Panthers (6-7) to lose one of their remaining three games to the Saints, Falcons and Saints again.

Is it possible? Yes, but it’ll take some much better play from the Eagles on the field to pull it off.
