An unreal 10-1 start informally secured a Philadelphia Eagles playoff berth this season. However, they haven’t yet sealed the deal after having their first opportunity in Week 14. A pair of (embarrassing) losses has the Eagles in a wild-card spot after holding the NFC’s #1 seed for most of the year. While the team wants to reclaim the top spot, joining the dance is first up. Key games to watch for, besides Eagles vs. Seahawks, are:
- Buccaneers @ Packers
- Vikings @ Bengals
- Broncos @ Lions
- Falcons @ Panthers
- Commanders @ Rams
- 49ers @ Cardinals
Scenarios for a Philadelphia Eagles Playoff Spot in Week 15
- PHI win/tie OR
- MIN loss/tie + ATL loss/tie + LAR loss/tie OR
- MIN loss/tie + ATL loss/tie + SF win/tie + DET win OR
- MIN loss/tie + TB loss + LAR loss/tie OR
- MIN loss/tie + TB loss + SF win/tie + DET win OR
- GB loss + ATL loss/tie + LAR loss/tie OR
- GB loss + ATL loss/tie + SF win/tie + DET win OR
- GB tie + LAR loss/tie OR
- GB tie + SF win/tie + DET win
The simplest option here is the one that every team wants. A Philadelphia Eagles playoff spot is reliant on a simple win and in scenario. However, should the team drop a third straight game, there are other options for Philadelphia to rely on. Their primary needs are losses by the Vikings and/or Falcons this week.
The Philadelphia Eagles Schedule is Favorable Down the Stretch
After a brutal gauntlet of games that included the Cowboys twice, the Chiefs, the Bills, and the 49ers, the Philadelphia Eagles playoff seed will come down to a four-game stretch against losing teams. Their toughest remaining foe is the 6-7 Seattle Seahawks, who the Eagles face this Monday night. After that, they have the Giants twice with the Cardinals between those meetings.
It would take a monumental collapse for the Philadelphia Eagles playoff dreams to evaporate. Even after dropping two massive games, the NFC East title and NFC’s top seed are still very alive. Getting back in the win column this week is the first step toward another home playoff game.
