For Eagles, wild card now possible via ESPN
PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles return from their bye week with clear directions to the NFC East title scrolling on their smartphones. It is a road, as expected, that leads through Dallas.
But wait. What is this little shortcut? Hard to believe, but that assumption the Eagles absolutely had to win the division to reach the postseason is no longer valid. After sitting out the weekend’s action, they are suddenly viable in the NFC wild-card picture as well.
