Suddenly, tremendous buzz hits Philly

PHILADELPHIA — There is a tremendous buzz a few minutes before kickoff because this game now means everything — especially to the Eagles.

With Tampa Bay losing to Oakland and the Bears losing to the Texans, the Eagles now can get in as the second wild card should they beat Dallas. The Cowboys already were in a win-and-in scenario, but Philadelphia needed help — and got it.

With Carolina winning the NFC South by virtue of its victory over New Orleans, the top five seeds in the NFC are set. This game is for the No. 6 seed.
