Seattle heads into Philadelphia one game behind the 49ers in the NFC West, while the Eagles are a game behind the Cowboys in the NFC East. Fortunately for the Seahawks, their 8-2 record gives them plenty of hope to make the playoffs even if they can’t usurp the 49ers, but the Eagles 5-5 record likely means they’ll need to beat out the Cowboys in the division to make the playoffs.
The Eagles have a slight edge at home, as they are favored by -1.5 points in this matchup. Their division leaders also get tough matchups, as the 49ers take on the Packers at home and the Cowboys head to New England. Whoever wins could be tied for the division lead Monday morning.
The Seahawks have a real shot at winning the division, as they’ve already gone into San Francisco and beaten the 49ers and face them again in Seattle in Week 17. There is a good chance the winner takes the division.
Dallas smashed the Eagles 37-10 in Week 7. The game was embarrassing to watch, but a win against Seattle could jumpstart them as they head into the last leg of the season and an easy schedule. After the Seahawks, they face the Dolphins, Giants twice, Washington, and have a home game against the Cowboys. Much like the NFC West, the NFC East could hinge on a single matchup.
