LANDOVER, Md. — The Eagles held on to postseason hopes Sunday when they rallied to beat the three-win Redskins, 37-27. It wasn’t pretty, but the victory allowed the injury-depleted team, and the well-traveling Philly fans who occupied many of the seats at FedEx Field, to consider the real possibility of an NFC East title.
The Eagles are now 7-7. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are also 7-7 after handily beating the Los Angeles Rams, 44-21.
Here’s a breakdown of how the Eagles could clinch the division and who they could host in the wild-card round of the playoffs if they win. Don’t bank on this just yet.
Bottom line: The Eagles must beat the Cowboys next week to play in January.
