The Vsgclothing-Blog-Here’s what has to happen for the Eagles to win the NFC East record moved to 13-2 after a Christmas Eve loss to the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.
Despite the unwanted result, the coveted No. 1 seed is still well within reach – Philadelphia needs to win just one of the remaining two regular games to clinch the NFC East, the No. 1 seed, the lone first-round bye, and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
The Eagles could even secure the NFC East before ringing in the New Year – they’ll clinch if Dallas loses or ties the 7-8 Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. The Cowboys (11-4) still trail the Eagles (13-2) in the race for the top spot in the NFC by two games, with only two left in the regular season.
The Minnesota Vikings are the closest competitor for the No. 1 seed outside of the NFC East with a 12-3 record after defeating the New York Giants 27-24 in Week 16. If the Eagles and the Vikings end the season with the same record, Philadelphia would still obtain the top seed in the conference due to a tiebreaker; they handily beat Minnesota in Week 2.
The San Francisco 49ers are also a threat – they’re trailing by two games. If they win out and the Eagles lose out, they’d be tied with Philadelphia. If that comes to be, the 49ers would claim the No. 1 seed because they’d have more conference wins.
If the season ended today …
• The Eagles would have the No. 1 seed, a first-round bye, and home-field advantage.
• They would NOT play in the Wild Card Round, which falls January 14th-16th.
• The Eagles would HOST the lowest-remaining seed of the Bucs, Cowboys, Giants, or Commanders in the Divisional Round on either Saturday, January 21st or Sunday, January 22.
The Eagles need to either win or tie one of their two final games, or the Cowboys must lose or tie once.
