The Philadelphia Eagles are Playoff Bound

After a 20-16 win over Washington and the Vikings losing to the Packers, the Eagles will be returning to the playoffs for the 4th time in 5 seasons. After starting 2-5, the eagles went 7-2 to clinch a wild card spot after a year of extremely low expectations.

How it happened?

To clinch a playoff spot the Eagles needed to first defeat the Washington Football Team. After an extremely slow start, the Eagles used a big second half to take the victory on the road. Boston Scott was the star of the game. He led the Eagles with 2 crucial TD's to help secure the victory. Jake Elliot added two field goals to help put away Washington. Dallas Goedert was the leading receiver with 71 yards followed by DeVonta Smith with 54 yards. With the Eagles clinching a playoff spot, Smith has another opportunity to break the franchise rookie receiving record held by DeSean Jackson.

The Eagles had their fans on the edge of their seat. Washington QB started the game 10/10 passing and it looked to be one of those days for the Eagles. In traditional Eagles fashion, they returned in the 2nd half as a different team. Giving up 0 points in the 2nd half, the Eagles relied heavily on that defense to finish the job. A Rodney McCleod interception in the endzone helped secure the win for the Eagles. Now the Eagles had to sit back and wait. They needed a Vikings loss to secure a playoff spot.

The Vikings needed a win this week and next week, plus an Eagles loss to secure a playoffs. Sadly for them, they had to go through Green Bay. With a win for the Packers, they would secure home field advantage in the NFC. Without Kirk Cousins, the Vikings played flat all game long. MVP front runner Aaron Rodgers did not disappoint for the Packers. Green Bay took care of business with ease and eliminated the Vikings from the playoffs and helped the Eagles clinch a playoff berth.
