2. No Philadelphia Eagles rival can catch them if they win their divisional games.

Okay, so you got all of that right? The worst-case scenario is the Eagles win their three divisional games and they lose all five of their games versus non-divisional opponents. That means, in order to slide past them, the 2-7 Cowboys would, at minimum, have to go 6-0 in their remaining games if they were indeed to lose on December 27th versus Philly at AT&T Stadium.

The Washington Football Team would have to post a 6-1 record at minimum prior to January 3rd to take the crown if they were indeed to lose the finale, and the Giants would probably have to win all six of their remaining games to finish at 8-8. Ladies and gentlemen, check their schedules. It ain’t happening for either team.

Philly could still pick up another win somewhere else, and that would make the tasks for their rivals even more daunting. Can Philly surprise the Packers at Lambeau Field for the second season in a row? Can they edge the up-and-coming Arizona Cardinals in a road game? They’ve always struggled with Larry Fitzgerald, but it’s doable. What about that Browns game? Maybe Baker Mayfield will have a letdown performance. It happens more often than Cleveland’s fans would like.

Philly will win their final three divisional games. If they can pick up another win somewhere else we’re looking at a 7-8-1 mark to close the season, and they would have closed the 2020 campaign by doing something that no NFC East team would have done since the Birds accomplished the same feat from 2002 to 2004, repeat as champions. Cross your fingers if you’re an Eagles fan. We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but from here, things look pretty promising.
