Inspired Eagles still holding onto playoff hopes

PHILADELPHIA - December 12, 2011

They've run out of time to turn things around, but, hey, at least they're still clinging to playoff hopes.

A 26-10 win at Miami on Sunday coupled with the New York Giants' 37-34 victory at Dallas kept Philadelphia alive in the division race. Even at 5-8, the defending NFC East champions have a chance to repeat. They must win their last three games, and the Giants and Cowboys each have to finish no better than 1-2.

Tough task, for sure. But until they are mathematically eliminated, the Eagles aren't conceding anything.

"It's exciting. We've got three games left and it's up for grabs," coach Andy Reid said Monday. "I'd say that's a good thing."
