Eagles are NFC East Champs!

Thanks to a Packers 45-17 win over the Giants, the Eagles have clinched the NFC East title! It is the first division title for the Eagles since 2006.

While the Eagles are now officially in the playoffs, there are still plenty of scenarios to play out before they know who they will play. The Eagles could still finish anywhere from 1st to 3rd in the NFC and could have a bye or play the Packers or Giants in the first round. While we can't assume anything at this point, if the Eagles beat the Vikings and the Cowboys in the final two weeks, their seeding will depend on who wins the Bears/Packers game. That game will likely determine whether the Eagles get a first round bye or face the Giants in the first round.

Of course, there is still that little matter of playing the postponed game on Tuesday night, a game that may be more difficult now that Adrian Peterson and Brett Favre are getting more time to heal.
