Without getting into too much math, it's easy to see that the Eagles can win the NFC East simplyby winning their final three games.
But with the 11-2 Cardinals heading to Philly for next Sunday night's game, the Eagles are still favored to win the division regardless.
According to FiveThirtyEight.com, the Eagles havea 47 percent chance of winning the division, as opposed to the Redskins 27 percent and Giants 24 percent chance (even if the Giants win against the Dolphins Monday night to keep pace.
Interestingly, all three of the contending squads are expected to lose their Week 15 games, with the Eagles 4.5 point underdogs at home, the Giants 6.5 underdogs at home (against the Panthers) and the Redskins one-point underdogs at home against Buffalo.
If all three teams remain tied heading into Week 16, things get very interesting.
First, the Eagles host the Redskins on a Saturday night game where they are 6.5 point favorites. The Giants have a fierce matchup in Minnesota as five-point underdogs against the Vikings, who will be vying for playoff position in the NFC North.

If things aren't decided by the time January rolls around, the Eagles head to MetLife Stadium where they could walkoff with the title, or hand it to New York as early 1.5 point underdogs.
The Redskins, if they can keep pace, face the Cowboys on the final day of the regular season in another inter-divisional battle.
In all, the Birds are in pretty good shapeand Sam Bradford couldn't be happier.
“I think that is all you can ask for," the quarterback said after Sunday's 23-20 win over the Bills."Obviously to start the year the way we did and kind of dig ourselves in a hole, it was unlikely that we would be in this position this late in the year. But for us to, like you said, control our own destiny where we don’t have to depend on anyone else, and if we take care of our business, we will end up where we want to be. I think that’s all you can ask for.”
According to FiveThirtyEight.com (an ESPN-affiliated statistics site), none of the teams in the NFC East have higher than a one percent chance of winning the Super Bowl.
