Eagles Nation took a break on Sunday since the Birds didn’t play — so it was a time to savor the 33-10 thumping of the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. and also do some shopping, attend holiday parties and watch the Red Zone.
In case you missed it, the Eagles at 9-3 now share the best record in the NFC with the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals.
The Eagles, however, lose the tie-breaker to both the Packers, because of their 53-20 loss in Green Bay; and to the Cardinals because of a 24-20 loss, as well as to a worse conference record.
Each of the three teams have two home games and two road games left on their schedule. The Eagles host Seattle (8-4) and Dallas (8-4) before traveling to Washington (3-9) and the Giants (3-9). The team will not board another flight the rest of the regular season.
Green Bay faces Atlanta (5-7) at home, goes to Buffalo (7-5) and Tampa Bay (2-10) and hosts Detroit (8-4).
Arizona hosts Kansas City (7-4 before last night’s game), goes to St. Louis (5-7), hosts Seattle (8-4) and goes to San Francisco (7-5).
So as the season turns to its final quarter, the Eagles hold the third seed in the NFC. Arizona is still No. 1 and Green Bay is No. 2.
If the playoffs started now, the Eagles would host the Detroit Lions (8-4), who would be the sixth seed, winning the tie-breaker over the Dallas Cowboys (8-4) for the final playoff spot in the NFC.
Detroit has a 6-2 conference record, while Dallas is 5-4.
In the other first-round game, Atlanta (5-7), as the winner of the South, would host Seattle (8-4), the No. 5 seed.
