You Gotta Love The Eagles' Super Bowl Chances

I am sure this has happened in the past but with two weeks left in the NFL’s regular season only one division has a winner. This weekend could reveal a few more division winners. You have to love this sport. It isn’t like the NBA where before the season starts you have an idea how the teams will stack up in the playoffs. But not in the NFL. You may have an idea of who will win their respective divisions but many times it doesn’t work out that way.

As far as the NFC East is concerned it is a possibility the division winner may be decided in AT&T Stadium December 9th. The Eagles control their own destiny. If they win the last two games of the season they win the division. Of course if the Dallas Cowboys keep being the Cowboys the Eagles could be crowned the NFC East Champions this weekend.

This season we have learned that any team regardless of their record can be beaten in any week. No team is safe. Some teams obviously stand out; the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints. But it can be argued that all these teams have lost games this year they should have won. Currently 15 teams are still in the hunt and the Indianapolis Colts have won their division. That is half the NFL teams with only two weeks left.

Now I believe the Eagles have just as good a chance to go to the Super Bowl and win as many other teams. Most teams have weakness that can be exploited. A smart coach can capitalize on those weaknesses. A smart coach like Philadelphia Eagles Chip Kelly. I love this sport.
