PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Eagles are one game away from clinching a playoff spot heading into NFL Week 17. Their record is currently 8-7, and they are tied for seventh place in the NFC East with San Franciso.
Their next matchup is against the Washington Football Team, which is currently 6-9. But, the San Francisco 49ers are vulnerable this week with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo nursing a hand injury.
After a dominating win over the Giants on Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles' postseason chances jumped to 61%, according to NBC Sports' big playoff projection board. In fact, a win over the Cowboys in Week 18 would put the Eagles in a good position to reach the playoffs. In order to secure a spot in the playoffs, the Eagles need to win a wild-card berth. Winning both games will guarantee it. Winning one would likely be enough. However, losing both games will very likely eliminate them.
The Philadelphia Eagles' postseason hopes remain in their own hands, but they need to win at least one more game to ensure that they can stay in the playoffs. The Philadelphia Eagles last two games are crucial for their playoff chances. The Washington Football Team should need to win today to avoid getting eliminated from the playoffs.
