Eagles playoff possibilities; don't lose to Washington

Basically the Eagles would win the NFC East, where they're tied with Washington and the Giants with a 6-7 record, by:

A) Winning their last three games.
B) Defeating Washington and the Giants.
Too busy to think of playoffs ...

The Eagles don't want to lose to Washington, as the Burgundy & Gold would hold the head-to-head tiebreaker and potentially the division tiebreaker.

The Eagles have a 44 percent probability of claiming the division pennant compared to 38 percent for Washington and 16 percent for the Giants, according to

There are other subtleties depending on how Washington and the Giants fare in their remaining games.

The Eagles would be eliminated from the No. 3 seed in the playoffs if they lose to or tied by the Cardinals, or if the Vikings defeat or tie the Bears or the Packers beat or tie the Raiders.

EAGLES (6-7)
Cardinals (11-2)
Washington (6-7)
at Giants (6-7)

Bills (6-7)
at Eagles (6-7)
at Cowboys (4-9)

GIANTS (6-7)
Panthers (13-0)
at Vikings (8-5)
Eagles (6-7)
