The best way for the Eagles to get into the playoffs is via the wild card, and it’s a conundrum for the final two playoff spots in the NFC. San Francisco is the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoffs at 7-6 while Washington is the No. 7 seed at 6-7 – ahead of Minnesota, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and New Orleans for the final playoff spot via tiebreakers.
Here are the NFC playoff standings from No. 6 to No. 11 and the remaining schedules for each:
No. 6 seed: San Francisco 49ers – vs. Falcons, at Titans, vs. Texans, at Rams No. 7 seed: Washington Football Team – at Eagles, at Cowboys, vs. Eagles, at GiantsNo. The best-case scenario for the Eagles is for Dallas to sweep Washington, giving Philadelphia an extra opportunity if the Eagles were to split with the Football Team.
