HOW HURTS INJURY AFFECTS EAGLES CHANCES FOR A BYE!

By Mike Bennett

The Eagles can clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFC this week, but the availability of Jalen Hurts against Dallas — and possibly for long-term — is now in question.

The Eagles are still very likely to clinch the bye, but their odds do drop by about 6 percent if they lose to the Cowboys on Saturday.

But that isn’t the only ripple effect of Hurts’ uncertainty. The Eagles play the Giants in Week 18, and not clinching the bye before the final week of the regular season could see Philly having to play to win that week and potentially shake up things in the NFC wild-card race.

The Eagles clinch the NFC East title with a win or tie at Dallas on Saturday and clinch NFC home-field advantage and a first-round bye with a win or a tie and loss or tie by the Vikings.
