There’s just one way for the Eagles to make the playoffs, and it begins at 4:25 p.m. on Sunday
All the games with NFC wild-card implications will begin at the same time. Talk about exciting.
With the playoffs on the line in Week 17, the Eagles' game against Washington was moved from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. on Dec. 30.
The Minnesota-Chicago game, Seattle-Arizona game, and Los Angeles Rams-San Francisco game will kick off at the same time, so the matchups with NFC wild-card implications will all be played at the same.
The Eagles need to beat Washington and have the Vikings lose to the Bears. Washington has already been eliminated from the playoffs.
Had the Seahawks lost to the Chiefs on Sunday night, there would have been one more path for the Eagles to reach the playoffs, but it required Seattle losing to the 3-12 Cardinals in Week 17.

The Bears still have something to play for, though, because a win over the Vikings and a Rams loss would give them a first-round bye.
All that the Eagles can control is their own game, but there will be scoreboard watching throughout the afternoon.
