The Eagles’ chances of making the playoffs have fallen without them even playing a game, according to MakeNFLPlayoffs.com. They do, however, remain in control of their own destiny - winning their last five games would guarantee a playoff berth.
Before their bye week, the first-place Birds had a 54 percent chance of playing postseason football. They also had a 46 percent chance to win the division. Those numbers are down after Week 12 wins from the Cowboys, Panthers, 49ers and Cardinals.
The Eagles, now tied with Dallas for first place in the NFC East, currently have a 46 percent chance of making the playoffs. They also have a 40 percent chance to win the division.
The Cowboys currently hold the NFC East tiebreaker advantage after beating the Eagles, 17-3, in Week 7. A 4-0 divisional record gives Dallas the second tiebreaker as well.
