The Eagles entered Week 12 against the Giants with the momentum of a two-game winning streak and a potential late-season playoff run.

The winning streak went up in flames, but Philadelphia’s playoff hopes remain intact despite the embarrassing loss, and as the team prepares for a matchup with the Jets, we’re breaking down the playoff picture going forward.

Dallas Cowboys — 7-4
Washington Football Team — 5-6
Philadelphia Eagles — 5-7
New York Giants — 4-7

It’s the NFC East, so Philadelphia’s never totally out of it, but the Giants loss took them from within a game of first place, to almost 3 games out.

The Eagles still have another matchup with the Giants, two with Washington, and the season finale against the Cowboys.

Philadelphia (11th in NFC) is still one of the few teams in the NFL that control their own destiny. They’ll have a must-win matchup with the Jets in Week 13 and will probably need to win out, sweeping four straight NFC East matchups to land the final Wild Card spot.
