Eagles Playoff Odds Take Slight Dive Ahead of NFC East Rematch With Cowboys in Week 16
By Zach Brunner
At this point in the season, most divisions have clear title contenders emerging and locking up playoff spots. For the NFC East, the eventual division champ has now come down to a pair of 7-7 teams fighting for a shot to climb above .500.
With a win on Sunday against the Washington Redskins, the Philadelphia Eagles kept their playoff hopes alive, but their odds to make the postseason did take a slight step in the wrong direction after Week 15.
Eagles' Odds to Make Playoffs
With a 7-7 record, the Eagles are tied with the Dallas Cowboys atop the lackluster NFC East. This creates an early win-or-miss-the-postseason matchup in Week 16 between these two teams, with the winner clinching the division and the loser falling out of the playoff race entirely.
Football Outsiders gives the Eagles a 33.4 percent chance to win the division and clinch a home playoff game, while FanDuel Sportsbook reflects a similar level of confidence, giving the Eagles +130 odds to win the NFC East and +114 odds to make the NFL Playoffs overall.
As stated previously, everything comes down to this Week 16 matchup between the Eagles and Cowboys. The Cowboys had a dominating 37-10 win in the first matchup back in Week 7, but with this Sunday's rematch comes on the road in Philadelphia, and anything could happen.
