As the Eagles attempt to make a run at the playoffs, we all know that the final three games of the season are important. However, Sunday’s game with the 49ers, which may get downplayed compared to the other two games left, is really important. A win on Sunday could solidify a spot in the playoffs for the Eagles. The follow scenarios can get the Eagles into the playoffs on Sunday:
- Eagles win or tie and a Giants loss or tie
- Eagles win and a Cowboys loss or tie
The Eagles can’t put themselves in the playoffs on Sunday, but they can definitely help their own cause. The focus has to be winning and you cant rely on help (although it was nice having some last week). However, they could be a definite playoff team as soon as Sunday.
There’s a lot of stories this week including the loss of Jeremy Maclin and the possible returns of Kevin Curtis and Brian Westbrook. Only time will tell when it comes to these two but one thing is definitely clear. Sunday is an important game and the Eagles need to win.
