New, comments

Might as well look at both sides.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. It really sucked. Let’s take a look at what the loss means for their standings in both the NFC playoff picture and the 2019 NFL Draft order.

NFC PLAYOFF PICTURE

PLAYOFF TEAMS

1 - Los Angeles Rams: 9-1 overall, 6-1 conference
2 - New Orleans Saints: 8-1 overall, 5-1 conference
3 - Chicago Bears: 6-3 overall, 4-1 conference
4 - Washington Redskins: 6-3 overall, 6-2 conference
5 - Carolina Panthers: 6-3 overall, 4-2 conference
6 - Minnesota Vikings: 5-3-1 overall, 4-2-1 conference

IN THE HUNT

7 - Green Bay Packers: 4-4-1 overall, 2-3-1 conference
8 - Atlanta Falcons: 4-5 overall, 4-2 conference
9 - Seattle Seahawks: 4-5 overall, 3-3 conference
10 - Dallas Cowboys: 4-5 overall, 3-3 conference
11 - Philadelphia Eagles: 4-5 overall, 2-4 conference
12 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 3-6 overall, 2-4 conference
13 - Detroit Lions: 3-6 overall, 2-4 conference

14 - Arizona Cardinals: 2-7 overall, 2-5 conference
15 - San Francisco 49ers: 2-7 overall, 1-5 conference
16 - New York Giants: 1-7 overall, 0-6 conference

ANALYSIS

Had the Eagles won on Sunday night, they’d have been second in the NFC East and seventh overall in the NFC standings. But they did not win. And now they’re third in the NFC East and 11th in the conference. They’re certainly not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs just yet. But there’s no denying that their season is on life support. It’s just hard to envision this team suddenly going on a run given the way they’ve played all season.

2019 NFL DRAFT ORDER

If you’ve given up hope on the Eagles making the playoffs, perhaps you’re interested in looking ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft. If that’s the case, here’s a look at the current first round order via Tankathon.

1 - Oakland Raiders: 1-8
2 - New York Giants: 1-7
3 - San Francisco 49ers: 2-7
4 - Arizona Cardinals: 2-7
5 - New York Jets: 3-7
6 - Buffalo Bills: 3-7
7 - Detroit Lions: 3-6
8 - Denver Broncos: 3-6
9 - Jacksonville Jaguars: 3-6
10 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 3-6
11 - Cleveland Browns: 3-6-1
12 - Indianapolis Colts: 4-5
13 - Dallas Cowboys: 4-5
14 - Seattle Seahawks: 4-5

17 - Baltimore Ravens: 4-5
18 - Miami Dolphins: 5-5
19 - Green Bay Packers: 4-4-1
20 - Tennessee Titans: 5-4

The 2019 NFL Draft will be important for the Eagles to try to rebuild a roster that clearly is in need of upgrades.
