Here's how the Philadelphia Eagles can still make the playoffs

The math isn't as complicated as you might think.

The Eagles' 32-30 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday kept their playoff hopes alive!

But what has to happen to ensure the reigning Super Bowl champs make it past the regular season?

Right now, there's just one path to the postseason:

Wild Card

With the Cowboys winning Sunday, the Birds only path to the playoffs is a Wild Card berth. To get there the Eagles will have to defeat the Washington Redskins on Sunday, December 30.

A win from the Birds isn't all it will take, however: the Minnesota Vikings also have to lose to the Chicago Bears.

If that were to happen, their record would be 8-7-1, compared to a 9-7 record for the Eagles if they win over Washington.
