Which is more likely?
Oakland beats Tampa Bay who are fighting for a playoff spot, Chicago,also fighting for a playoff spot, loses to Houston and the Eagles beat Dallas who, incidentally, are fighting for a playoff spot, all on the same day?
The Eagles beat Minnesota and the Giants again and Atlanta, Arizona or Carolina?
Isn´t it funny how a long season can be turned upside down so completely in just a few hours on the last day of regular season, and when the gloom that most of us have felt for so many weeks has kind of vaporised and disappeared, the mountain that looked insurmountable suddenly appear almost as a smallish hill. It is not of course but by no means are the Eagles out of it. They actually have a real chance here. In fact, counting preseason (which one shouldn´t of course but what the heck!) the Eagles have beaten every NFC playoff team this season except the Vikings who they didn´t play and they haven´t excactly looked unbeatable during the course of the season.
I was thinking about posting something about the Flyers, that they might become the next championship team in philly (and the first in, like, 25 long weeks or so!), given how well they have been playing and how complete they have been looking as a team and blah blah blah. That will have to wait a while now.
First I will enjoy this playoff run.
