Here’s a quick synopsis of the Eagles playoffs chances as they prepare to play the Houston Texans tomorrow at the Linc:
Best possible playoff outcome: No. 4 seed
Worst possible outcome: Out
The Eagles’ upset victory over the Rams last Sunday night helped their playoff chances, but they’ll still need help to make the postseason.
Though it’s possible for an 8-8 Eagles team to make the playoffs, winning out to 9-7 would give the team a much more realistic chance.
Because the Eagles lost twice to the division-leading Cowboys, a wild-card berth is much more likely than a division title.
Eagles fans should be rooting against the other wild-card contenders: the Panthers, the Seahawks and especially the Vikings.
