The Eagles’ 25-22 win over the Giants yesterday at the Linc improved their record to 5-6, one game behind the Redskins and Cowboys in the NFC East.

Here’s a breakdown of the NFC playoff possibilities:

Here’s how the NFL playoff picture looks after Week 12’s Sunday games.

1. New Orleans Saints (10-1): Saints have inside track to home-field advantage but begin stretch of three in a row on road Thursday night in Dallas.

2. Los Angeles Rams (10-1): NFC West leader. With Seattle hanging tough, they’ll have to wait at least one more week to clinch division.

3. Chicago Bears (8-3): NFC North leader. Enjoying mini bye after Thanksgiving win, though apparently no guarantee it will be sufficient amount of time for Mitch Trubisky to be ready for Week 13 (at Giants).

4. Dallas Cowboys (6-5): NFC East leader. Superior division record gives them tiebreaker over Washington, though Redskins appear to have more favorable schedule rest of way.

5. Minnesota Vikings (6-4-1): Wild card No. 1. Outlasted Packers to maintain tenuous grip on this berth.

6. Washington Redskins (6-5): Wild card No. 2. Carolina has now lost to Washington and Seattle, but Redskins get the spot (instead of Seahawks) for time being due to better record in NFC games.

In the hunt: Carolina Panthers (6-5), Seattle Seahawks (6-5), EAGLES (5-6), Green Bay Packers (4-6-1), Atlanta Falcons (4-7), Detroit Lions (4-7), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-7)
