And, just like that, another week of NFL action is in the books. Before the Philadelphia Eagles' emotional win in Week 11 on Monday Night Football, they enjoyed a week off. They earned it following a draining win at Lincoln Financial Field over the hated Dallas Cowboys in Week 9. This time, however, there won't be any time for relaxation.
This time, the Birds get a few hours to enjoy their victory before have to turn the page quickly. They host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at 4:25 pm EST.
The playoff picture is beginning to come into focus. The Birds are owners of pro football's best record. They're 9-1 for the second time in two seasons.
Here are your current playoff standings in the National Football Conference after Week 11.
