Three weeks ago, the Philadelphia Eagles were firmly in control of the NFC’s No. 1 seed after a 10-1 start.

Three losses later and the Eagles relinquished that control to the San Francisco 49ers and found themselves in a battle with the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East. Two of those losses came in blowouts to the 49ers and Cowboys, raising significant questions about Philadelphia’s championship viability.

After a tough stretch of games, the Eagles close out the regular season with two against the 5-9 Giants and another against the 3-11 Arizona Cardinals with their first against the Giants on Christmas Day. Can they pull it off against a soft schedule in time for the playoffs?

Live44 updates

  • It’s the end of the first quarter, the Eagles beat the Giants 7-3.

    D’Andre Swift thought he had turned the field and scored a second touchdown for Philadelphia, but it was determined that his knee went down on the play.

  • Amazing play by Jalen Hurts to track down a bad snap and hit Grant Calcaterra for a first down!

    This is Calcaterra’s first catch of the season.

  • Mason Crosby signed with the Giants on Saturday. Mason Crosby made his first field goal for the Giants on Monday, a 52-yarder to cut the Eagles’ lead to 7-3.

  • The brotherly jostling ends. The Eagles go up 7-0 early after a big punt puts them in the red zone.

  • A 54-yard punt return by Britain Covey set up the Eagles on their first drive. Philadelphia’s first drive started at New York’s 13-yard line.

  • Three and out for the Giants on their first possession.

  • The Eagles will start the match after winning the toss. Giants have the ball first.

  • Eagles vs. Giants is next.

  • And that’s the game. The Raiders have run out of time and are in for a stunning 20-14 upset of the Raiders. Kansas City still controls the AFC West at 9-6, two games ahead of the second-place Denver Broncos (7-8). But there is cause for concern in Kansas City.

  • Zamir White ended the game for the Raiders. Two big runs (43 and 15 yards) put Las Vegas in the red zone with 2:00 left. Bosses don’t have a timeout. The Raiders can run out the clock from here. What an upset.

  • Big score for the bosses. Kansas City one score later after Patrick Mahomes found Justin Watson in the end zone. Raiders lead, 20-14 with 2:42 left. The Chiefs have two timeouts remaining.

  • Bosses don’t benefit from interception cancellation. The Raiders are on fourth down in the red zone and have a 20-7 lead early in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs will need to catch some big breaks to avoid a Christmas upset at home.

  • Mahomes almost threw another interception. It was canceled as incomplete on re-examination. A big break for the bosses. Raiders lead, 20-7 early in the fourth quarter.
