Philadelphia Eagles: NFC East Champs

New, comments

It's not quite as fun as clinching the division with an Eagles win, but with the Mets-like collapse that the Giants continued this afternoon in their 45-17 loss in Green Bay (complete with 6 Giants turnovers), your Philadelphia Eagles are going to the playoffs and have clinched the NFC East division title.

NFC EAST    
  W L
Eagles 10 4
Giants 9 6
Redskins 6 9
Cowboys 5 10

The only thing left for the Eagles to play for is the #2 seed, which is currently possessed by the Chicago Bears, who beat the New York Jets 38-34 earlier today.  For the Eagles to get the #2 seed, they'll need to beat the Joe Webb led Minnesota Vikings this Tuesday, and the Stephen McGee led Dallas Cowboys next Sunday, and have the Bears lose to the impressive Green Bay Packers next week.  A scenario also exists in which the Eagles could get the #1 seed, although they'd need the above scenario with the Bears to occur and also have the Atlanta Falcons lose their 2 remaining games against the Saints and Panthers.

Few picked the Eagles to take the NFC East this preseason, and yet here they are... division champs, and playing high level pro football.  Congratulations to the Eagles!
