Six weeks ago, after a thrilling 37-34 overtime victory over the Buffalo Bills, the Philadelphia Eagles seemed like a team destined to reach the Super Bowl and repeat as NFC Champions. 

Philadelphia was 10-1 and were sizable favorites to at least win the NFC East and host a playoff game. But the Eagles have now backed their way into the No. 5 seed in the NFC after losing five of their final six games. 

Sportsbooks once touted Philadelphia as one of the Super Bowl favorites. Now, following Sunday’s 27-10 loss to the New York Giants, there’s a lot less brotherly love for Nick Sirianni’s squad.

The Eagles are +1600 to win the Super Bowl at FanDuel Sportsbook heading into the Wild Card Round.

Can the Eagles win the Super Bowl? 

Since it coughed up its commanding lead in the division to the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia would likely have to go on the road and win multiple times in the postseason to reach the Super Bowl. 

Last season as the NFC’s top seed, Philadelphia had little issue disposing of the New York Giants (38-7) and the injury-plagued San Francisco 49ers (31-7) from the comfort of Lincoln Financial Field. 

So, where did it all go wrong? 

Why Philadelphia sputtered down the stretch

Quarterback Jalen Hurts was a frontrunner for the league’s Most Valuable Player award during the Eagles’ 10-1 start. Hurts had 11 consecutive games with multiple touchdowns before Philadelphia was trounced by Dallas, 33-13, in Week 13. Over the final five games of the regular season, Hurts had seven total touchdowns and six turnovers and only threw for over 200 yards once (301 in a win over the Giants Dec. 25). 

Top wide receiver A.J. Brown, who recorded six consecutive 100-yard receiving efforts earlier in the season, hit the century mark just once over the last nine games. Further, he suffered a knee injury that could cost him postseason action.

While Hurts shoulders some blame, the Eagles’ defense is a far cry from what it was last year.

Here's a comparison of Philadelphia's defense this season vs. last year's championship unit.

You can point back to the offseason as the start of the problem for the Eagles when offensive coodinator Shane Steichen (Indianapolis Colts) and defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon (Arizona Cardinals) took head-coaching jobs.

Philadelphia Eagles are slight favorites in Wild Card round

Despite its glaring issues on both sides of the ball, Philadelphia is still a small favorite to advance to the divisional round of the playoffs. The Eagles visit the No. 4 Buccaneers in the Wild Card on Monday, Jan. 15 in Tampa Bay.

The Eagles are a 2.5 - to 3-point favorite on the road in the first round. Philadelphia is -145 on the money line (to win the game outright), which gives them a 59.18% of advancing past the NFC South champions.

A $100 bet on the Eagles to win would net $68.97 in profit. The total (over/under) is set at 44 points.

It's a tricky matchup between two teams that have looked sub-par in recent weeks. Philadelphia limped into the No. 5 seed and Tampa Bay, after winning four straight, lost to the New Orleans Saints by double digits at home and failed to score a touchdown against the Panthers on Sunday, winning 9-0.

Could a shootout be in store in matchup between two of the NFL's worst passing offense? It could all depend on the health of the signal-callers. Hurts has been hampered by a knee injury this season but hasn't missed time, though he is day-to-day after a gruesome finger dislocation suffered on Sunday against the Giants. Tampa Bay quarterback Baker Mayfield, who was listed as questionable for Week 18, was limping in the first half of the Buccaneers' division-clinching win over Carolina.
