The Philadelphia Eagles have their work cut out for them in trying to make the playoffs. In addition to needing a win over the Washington Redskins, the defending Super Bowl champions have to hope the Chicago Bears can beat the Minnesota Vikings.

Let’s say the Eagles find their way into the postseason. What team will Philadelphia play on Wild-Card Weekend?

There are two possible first-round opponents for the Eagles. They would go on the road to face either the Bears or Los Angeles Rams.

Philadelphia trails the Minnesota Vikings by a half-game for the NFC’s second wild-card spot. The Seattle Seahawks are only a game ahead of the Eagles for the No.5 seed, but they own the tiebreaker. That means Philadelphia can only find their way into the No.3 vs. No.6 seed matchup.

Chicago enters Week 17 as the NFC’s No.3 seed. They are a game behind the No.2 seed Los Angeles Rams. Because the Bears beat the Rams at Soldier Field a few weeks ago, they own the tiebreaker over L.A.

It’s going to be hard for the Bears to move up in the standings and earn a bye. Even if they defeat the Vikings and allow the Eagles to make the postseason, it’s unlikely that the Rams will suffer a loss in Week 17. Los Angeles will host the San Francisco 49ers, who are winless on the road and lost to the Rams by 29 points earlier this season.

The Eagles are expected to win their Week 17 matchup. They are 6.5-point road favorites against the Redskins, per OddsShark. Philadelphia has won two straight games since Nick Foles has taken over for the injured Carson Wentz at quarterback. Washington has lost five of their last six games and is down to their fourth quarterback.

Foles and the Eagles know that they can win a potential wild-card game against the Rams. The won in Los Angeles just two weeks ago when the Super Bowl MVP completed 77.4 percent of his passes.

The Bears and Eagles haven’t met this season.
