NFL Week 15: Vikings and 49ers can slightly help the Eagles

Late games, NFL Week 15, 2014.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Now that the NFL Week 15 early games are over, it's time for the late games.

Here's which teams Eagles fans should be rooting for.

What to root for and why:

(LATE) Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions - Root for the Vikings. The Lions losing is good insurance for the Eagles if they lose to the Cowboys and end up aiming for the wild card. A Minnesota win raises the Eagles' playoff chances by 5.1%.

(LATE) San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks - Root for the 49ers. A San Francisco win raises the Eagles playoff chances by 1.6%. It also increases Philadelphia's odds of a first round bye by 8.8%.

Games with no impact on the Eagles:

Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers (LATE)

New York Jets at Tennessee Titans (LATE)


The Philadelphia area will receive the Seahawks-49ers game on FOX.
