After starting the year 2-5, the Philadelphia Eagles have won four of their past six games and prepare for an uphill battle to make the NFL playoffs, according to betting odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

FanDuel Sportsbook has released odds for every team to make the NFL Playoffs. The Eagles hold -205 odds to miss the postseason following their bye in Week 14. Philadelphia prepares for a stretch of four games against NFC East rivals to close out the year.

Eagles Playoff Odds

Closing out the year against the NFC East is a tale of two tapes for Philadelphia. They face the division-leading Dallas Cowboys (9-4) just once, which means three games against sub-.500 teams (New York Giants and Washington Football Team).

But, Philadelphia is a full three games back of the Cowboys in the NFC East standings with their 6-7 overall record. It's not easy to count on the Cowboys dropping three-of-four or all four games to close out the year, meaning it's likely Wild Card or bust in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia features offensive and defensive units that both rank in the top-half of the NFL. Jalen Hurts and the offense score the 12th-most points (25.9) per game while the defense allows the 16th-fewest points (22.4). However, the aerial attack averages less than 200 yards (196.2) per game, an obvious sore spot as the third-worst passing offense across the league.

The Eagles face off against the Washington Football Team in Week 15, a game which sees Philadelphia favored by 5.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook.
