Philadelphia, PA - With a win against the Texans, the Eagles keep the team alive in the playoff run with their 32-30 triumph making them 8-7 for the season. Since the Cowboys won the NFC East with a win over the Buccaneers, the Wild Card is going to be their sole option at this point.
Eagles Playoff Scenarios: What Needs to Happen
So, what now, the Eagles will have to win next Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Truth be told there isn't any other way to get into the postseason at this point. However, that's not all! The most straight-forward path for Philly is a Bears win in Minnesota to close out the year. Philadelphia can also get in if Seattle losses this week, and they even somehow manage to lose to the Cardinals next week.
So to sum it up, the Eagles will need to win in Week 17, combined with two Seahawks mishaps or one Vikings loss, to earn a spot in the postseason. However, anything can happen with this team.
*UPDATE: Seahawks won Sunday Night, meaning now Eagles must win next game and Vikings need a loss
