The Philadelphia Eagles are in the playoffs! The question is who will they be playing?
Say what you want. Yes, the Philadelphia Eagles played some inferior quarterbacks. You can, most certainly, argue that the slow starts, week after week, are a cause for concern.
Both the offense and defense fall asleep behind the wheel sometimes. They have one legitimate wide receiver, and they’ve missed on way too many draft choices. None of that should matter right now though.
From where the Eagles were a season ago to where they are now, there’s a lot to be proud of about this team. Think back to September. We didn’t know what we had, but no one thought that we had a team that would clinch a playoff spot with a full week of NFL football yet to be played.
No, this isn’t a Super Bowl team, but it has a lot that it can build upon when we turn the page from the current season to the one that follows. First things first though. The Birds have one more regular-season game scheduled. Then, they’ll find themselves in an NFC Wild Card Game.
The question is who will they be playing? Here’s a ranking of possible first-round opponents.
