Eagles Playoff Picture: Standings & Postseason Scenarios for Week 17

Wednesday, 01 Jan, 2020

They did it without many of their offensive starters - including Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram - as the defense got the job done, holding Devlin Hodges to just nine completions and 95 yards from his 25 attempts along with a forced fumble and a safety.

We made it! The final regular-season NFL Power Rankings of 2019! As I noted in the playoff preview, Baltimore will take on the lowest remaining seed in the AFC, giving them three potential opponents to watch out for.

Facing the other NFC division winners means a game against the Green Bay Packers at Levi's Stadium and returning to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to face the New Orleans Saints.

- The Seahawks loss to the 49ers in Week 17 makes their road schedule a little less advantageous for fans wanting to travel to see their team.

For the Cowboys to advance to the postseason, the Giants would have to beat the Eagles and beat the Washington Redskins.

Along with being in control of their own playoff destiny for the No. 1 seed at one point, Seattle also saw Wilson find his name in the conversation for the MVP award as well when seeing how effective the Seahawks quarterback was running the offense. That's a big "if", though, and the oddsmakers aren't insane to forecast this as a two-score game. The Saints would need to defeat the Carolina Panthers (5-10) and have Green Bay and San Francisco lose.

The Saints are sitting pretty as the No. 3 seed right now but they could vault to the No. 2 seed with a loss by San Francisco. Houston (10-6), AFC South champion 5.

"I worked for a guy that has a lot of playoff games under his belt and the message I took from him was, 'You can only control what you can control, ' and that's this week", Daboll said. The 49ers could clinch home-field advantage until the Super Bowl with a win. The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New York Giants which propelled them to an NFC East victory over a Cowboys team that was supposedly destined for greatness.
