Eagles can clinch an NFL playoff spot this Sunday in this scenario

There is nothing keeping the Eagles from the playoffs after the Saints loss Monday night to the Miami Dolphins.

And that can become official as soon as this Sunday.

The Saints’ 20-3 loss to the Dolphins increased the Eagles’ playoff chances to 68% according to the website fivethirtyeight.com. 

It will be 100% if the following happens this Sunday:

►The Eagles (8-7) beat the Washington Football Team (6-9), coming off a 56-14 loss to Dallas. The Eagles beat WFT 27-17 last Tuesday.

►The Vikings (7-8) lose to the Green Bay Packers (12-3). The Packers are trying to clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFC and thus a first-round bye.

►A win by the 49ers (8-7) over the Houston Texans (4-11).

An Eagles win Sunday would prevent the Saints from overtaking them because the Eagles won the head-to-head matchup on Nov. 21.
