Eagles 'W' = playoff game at Minnesota
That's because the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears both sustained 31-24 losses to the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans, respectively.
Those results rocked Lincoln Financial Field and appeared to pump the Eagles.
Interestingly the Eagles didn't take the field for the start of the game Sunday until 4:10 p.m. for a 4:15 kickoff. That was the exact moment the results of the preceding games were in and it was clear the Eagles still were in playoff contention. The Cowboys had been on the field for 15 minutes.
The Eagles would open the postseason at Minnesota against the NFC North champion Vikings.
