The Eagles got a win in their own game on Sunday. And then they got another when the Packers beat the Vikings.

With Minnesota’s 37-10 loss to Green Bay, Philadelphia officially clinched a playoff berth in Nick Sirianni’s first season as head coach.

The Eagles had four ways to clinch a postseason slot on Sunday, and did it when their win, the 49ers victory over the Texans, and the Vikings’ loss to the Packers.

The 49ers were close to clinching, but New Orleans’ victory over Carolina prevented that from happening on Sunday.

Philadelphia will host Dallas for the regular-season finale next week. The Eagles won’t host a playoff game, but their ultimate seed from No. 5 to No. 7 will be determined by the Week 18 results.

  1. Eagles in the playoffs due to expansion of the wild card. Greed got the eagles a playoff spot. NFL should have left it as it was. Why mess with perfection? Now they are watering the playoffs down like MLB.

  2. There’s really nothing for either Dallas or Philly to play for next week. Kind of makes the season finale potentially boring if either or both team rests their starters.

    With no running game the Cowboys can’t afford to lose another receiver.

  3. Bunch of happy eagle fans for sure. They should text Kirk Cousins for not being vaxed and screwing his team out of a chance to get into the playoffs. I think that move is going to bite him in the arse. The Vikes need some rebuilding, not a lot but some and he may be part of that package.

    Lol yea because we all know cousins always shows up big in big games when they need him. It would have been the same exact outcome. Vikings lose.

  5. I believe the Eagles have 3 first round picks. They are going to be scary. I would probalby keep trading down and stock up on more picks.

  6. Way to go Cousins! Another guy who believes the world is flat, and no man has set foot on the moon.

  7. Its just awesome the Eagles made it. No, we’re not a very good team and we’re not expecting to go far, but that’s what made this special. We won all the crap games we should have won, we played hard, Hurts showed us he isn’t perfect but perfectly capable, and Siriani, how he’s recovered from his first press conference and that awful 2-5 start. Easy team to cheer for.

  8. The Eagles with 1/2 a team makes the playoffs…..meanwhile the Cowboys at full strength can’t beat another playoff team that is at 1/2 strength….. hummmmmm

  9. No expectation that the Eagles get out of the first round, but always good to get playoff experience.
