    Eagles have the best record - but
    They squeaked by a bunch of teams. They are playing much better lately.
    Have they peaked too early?
    If they are going to get bumped out of the playoffs, who is going to do it?

    Make your case.....

    The way Philly is playing it will likely take a team with a vet QB who doesn't rattle easy and can play from behind if need be. Teams with playoff experience probably have the best chance to knock off Philly. So the Saints, Panthers, Falcons and Seahawks would be my picks to take them out. And I think any of those teams beating the Eagles, in Philadelphia, in the playoffs would probably be considered an upset right now. But the season isn't over so things can change.

    No playoff experience (or barely any) for either of them. I like both those teams but I think it's going to take a seasoned QB to be Philly right now, especially on the road during the playoffs.

    We are playing really good and not really a traditional 9-1 dominant team. NO with Brees, Minny having a top 5 O and D, and Seattle could all kick them out. Again, Philly is playing very well but far from a true dominant team.

    I think Minny is very well rounded. Top 5 O and top 5 D

    Hopefully, no one. But the team that worries me most is New Orleans. The Saints knocked Philly out of the playoffs twice in the past decade. Payton seems to have our number.

    There will be 2 blue moons in the sky and pigs will fly.....

    Either Saints or Minnesota will bounce Philly when the chips are down.

    They need just about everything to go right for them from here until the season ends to have any prayer of making the playoffs. By the time Zeke comes back they'll likely be eliminated already. There are already 5 NFC teams ahead of them for the two wildcard spots. Dallas would need to win out and have all the teams ahead of them really stumble. It's not impossible, just highly improbable.
