Philadelphia Eagles Fortunate To Sit Atop NFC East
They share the lead with the Dallas Cowboys, who lost in thrilling fashion in what was one of the better regular season games in recent memory. The Eagles will meet the Cowboys in two weeks time in what will inevitably be a game that decides who will be in first place at the season’s midway point.
The Eagles should consider themselves fortunate that they are in this situation. They still control their own destiny despite playing very poorly in big stretches over the last three weeks. Much of this can be attributed to the fact that this is a dysfunctional division that no other team is running away with.
The Eagles might have to play the next few weeks with quarterback Nick Foles at the controls in place of the injured Michael Vick. It will be key for the offense to sustain their play from the second half on Sunday and have it carry over.
Time will tell if Vick will be ready for the crucial clash with the divisional rival Cowboys. However, Foles has had success against them in the past. Right now, the Eagles look like the best of a very bad division. It is possible that an 8-8 record will get an NFC East team into the playoffs as a no. 4 seed as each of the four teams have their share of issues on both sides of the ball. Coach Chip Kelly will take it.
As the old saying goes, once your in, anything can happen.
