I agree that if the Bears win, it will give Philly hope and they will be extra motivated Monday
That too. I’m more worried about week 17. If Dallas clinches after week 16 Philly will be a no show in the game at MetLife. If they are in it, it’ll be a Philly home game with Eagles fans buying up tickets. It’s be a cool atmosphere, Eli’s last game v a playoff game for Philly. I’d like a nice heroic effort by Eli in a close loss.
Its also about winning % of our opponents. Because both the Bears and Cowboys played it was a cancel out
It’s also about record. The games mattering for Philly through week 17 increase our odds greatly of losing that final game, Now if Dallas loses to the rams the Eagles remain alive week 17 even if they lose the head to head matchup. If Dallas had beaten the Bears and then won the Eagles game they’d have clinched the division in week 16. Leaving the Eagles dreams shattered and unlikely to try in MetLife. We can’t afford to win more than - of these final 4 if we want # 2. I’d rather go 0-4 and see if we can get # 1.
