Philadelphia Eagles (vs. Seahawks)


Is it possible the Chiefs beat the Bucs? Absolutely. It should probably be the expectation. Can the 49ers defeat the Rams? Sure.

A loss for the Seattle Seahawks would also be beneficial, but they come up against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12. OK, let’s look at the positives. The Seahawks are hosting a division leader who currently would own the fourth seed in the playoffs. Let’s just forget the fact that the Eagles have a 3-6-1 record which, while good enough for first place in the NFC East, would put them last in the NFC West.

Again, the Seahawks’ record might count for little if they don’t win their division. As long as the Packers win the NFC North, they’d be guaranteed a higher seeding than the Seahawks if they finish second or third in their division.

But Seattle is still very much in the mix for the NFC West title and has a great schedule to come with games against the New York Giants, New York Jets, and Washington Football Team up next.

It would certainly help if they could slip up somewhere along the way. Maybe that will happen this week against the Eagles on Monday Night Football.
