The Philadelphia Eagles have stomped through their schedule over the first 12 weeks, going 10-1 and showing no signs of slowing down. Philadelphia has the best record in the NFL, which means they'll have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs if they keep it up.

They need to clinch a playoff spot first, however, which they can do as early as this week with a little help.

Eagles Playoff Scenarios

Philadelphia can punch its ticket to the postseason with a win alongside losses by the Washington Commanders, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks. The Eagles can also lock up a playoff spot with a combination of ties and losses by those teams.

A win isn't a given for Philly in Week 13 with the 7-4 Tennessee Titans in town. The Eagles are the better team with their explosive offense and strong defense, however, and should take care of business, as they're favored by 5.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.

The Commanders, meanwhile, will take on the New York Giants. San Francisco faces the high-powered Miami Dolphins in Week 13, and Seattle draws the lowly Los Angeles Rams.

There's a good chance at least one of those squads win this week, which would delay the Eagles officially wrapping up a playoff spot. With how they've played so far, however, that outcome is almost purely a formality at this point.

Besides, Philadelphia has its sights set on more than just making the postseason. The Eagles enter Week 13 tied with the 49ers for the third-best Super Bowl odds (+650) on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
