The Eagles’ path to the playoffs got a whole lot easier Sunday night. In an early Christmas gift to fans, the injury-plagued squad pulled off a 17-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys in South Philly. The team improved to 8-7, and now all that stands in their way is the 4-11 Giants next Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
While the Giants have had a rough season, they a showed a lot of fight in a 41-35 overtime win against the Redskins on Sunday. A re-energized-looking Saquon Barkley logged 189 rushing yards, 90 receiving yards, and two touchdowns.
So, the Eagles can’t afford to overlook the season finale and come out flat. If they do, it’ll take a Dallas loss to the Redskins for the Philadelphia team to clinch the division.
