My New Favorite Teams...

Not into fantasy football? Not into point spreads? No Eagles to watch this Sunday. Well if you are still thinking Eagles and the playoffs, cheer for these teams...
  • Giants over the Redskins ('Skins would then also have 5 losses)
  • Packers over the Panthers (Panthers, 2nd in the NFC South and would have 4 losses)
  • Buccaneers over the Saints (Have the Bucs with the South, Give the 'Aints their 6th loss)
  • Chargers over the Falcons (Maybe the Chargers can play to their potential, while also handing the Falcons their 5th loss)
  • Chicago vs Vikings (either way one team gets their 6th loss)

Enjoy the scoreboard watching....

Actually as an Eagles fan you would want the Bears to win and force the Vikings to get their sixth loss. We want the Bears to win the division and not fall into the wildcard hunt since they own the tiebreaker over the Eagles by virtue of their head to head win. I assume you just forgot that.

Update- Since the Vikings won the formula to getting into the playoffs for the Birds is clear. One wildcard will definitely fall to Tampa or Carolina with the other winning their division(NFC Sounth). All of the remaining wild card contenders would need to have 6 losses and the Birds could get in if they run the table at 10-5-1. The problem is that means the Cowgirls and Atlanta would both need to lose 2 out of their remaining 4 games. The rest of the contenders will surely have 6 losses. All that and the birds have to win 4 straight. The perfect storm would have to occur for the Eagles to have any shot. If we had only beaten Cincinnati this would be much easier. Watching the Ravens take apart the Bengals today reminds me just how pathetic the Eagles tie was.
