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?
