Last night, thanks to a Vikings win the Eagles were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

The Eagles were eliminated from playoff contention last night when the Vikings, coached by Andy Reid's long-time friend Brad Childress, beat the Bears for their fifth consecutive win.

One day after celebrating their biggest win of the year, 10-6 over the NFC East-champion Cowboys at Texas Stadium, the Eagles were mathematically eliminated from the NFC wild-card race.

This is the second time in three years, but only the second time this decade, that the Eagles won't participate in the postseason.
