The Eagles are on the verge of making the playoffs, and they can all but nail down a wild card slot today in Washington.
So we turn to the New York Times for all the news that matters about the Birds chances:
Remaining games: at Washington Football Team, Cowboys
WEEK 17+18 OUTCOMES MAKE PLAYOFFS WILD CARD HOST WILD CARD BYE WEEK Win both (10-7) 100% 100% 0% 0% Win + lose (9-8) 75% 75% 0% 0% Lose + win (9-8) 74% 74% 0% 0% Lose both (8-9) 4% 4% 0% 0%
The Eagles are playing for a wild-card berth.
Winning both games will guarantee it.
Winning one will probably be enough.
Losing both will very likely eliminate them.
