The Philadelphia Eagles (7-7) pulled off one of the great upsets of the 2018 NFL season on Sunday night, as they strolled into the L.A. Coliseum and beat the high-powered Los Angeles Rams (11-3) without starting quarterback Carson Wentz. As such, the defending Super Bowl champs are still alive in the playoff hunt, but their margin for error is slim.

FiveThirtyEight’s projections give the Eagles a 37 percent chance to make the playoffs after their 30-23 victory over the Rams. Amazingly, they can still win the division since the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys (8-6) lost on Sunday. They have a 5 percent chance to win the NFC East, per FiveThirtyEight.

It will be an uphill battle for the Eagles to make the playoffs. Assuming the Cowboys win the division, Philadelphia needs to do the same thing as the Carolina Panthers (6-7): Win out and hope the Minnesota Vikings (7-6-1) and Seattle Seahawks (8-6) struggle down the stretch.

That will be easier said than done, as the Eagles’ final two games are against a contender and a fringe playoff team. They get the Houston Texans (10-4) at home next week and end the year on the road against Washington (7-7). They will have to win at least one of those games with Nick Foles at quarterback, as he was confirmed as the starter against Houston.

The reigning Super Bowl MVP was mostly efficient against the Rams, completing 77 percent of his passes for 270 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

Vegas Insider gives the Eagles 60/1 odds to win the NFC and return to the Super Bowl.
