Week 17 non-Eagles rooting information

With a win over the New Orleans Saints on New Yr’s Day, the Philadelphia Eagles can clinch the NFC East in addition to the No. 1 seed, a first-round bye and home-field benefit through the playoffs. If they will try this, what occurs round the remainder of the league is insignificant, comparatively talking. Nonetheless, there are nonetheless issues to root for round the remainder of the NFL, I suppose, so let’s get to all that. Ultimate winners in daring.

Once more, as famous above, if the Eagles win in opposition to the Saints, it is a wrap. If they do not win, then one of many following two issues must occur for the Eagles to nonetheless get the 1 seed:

I believe it is fairly protected to say that if the Eagles cannot win certainly one of their ultimate two video games, they can not rely on all three of the Cowboys, Niners and Vikings to lose another recreation. And so, you’d most likely higher hope for a great NFC seeding association as an alternative of “Eagle fail insurance coverage”.

In my view, the Eagles’ greatest risk to a Tremendous Bowl look is the 49ers. Assuming the Eagles care for enterprise in opposition to the Saints or Giants in Weeks 17 or 18, the Niners and Vikings would be the 2 and three seeds within the NFC playoffs, relying on the outcomes of their ultimate two video games. Neither staff would face the Eagles till the NFC Championship Sport.

It is best for the Eagles if the Vikings win the two seed, which might put them in a greater place to beat the Niners within the divisional spherical if each groups advance that far. And even when they can not beat the Niners at residence, no less than the Niners would have some small stage of added fatigue from having to journey to Minnesota through the divisional spherical, after which theoretically to Philly for the convention championship spherical.

  2. vikings at Packers

The Niners are heavy favorites over the Raiders, whereas the Vikings are underdogs to the Packers.

Eagle failure insurance coverage

• Foals at Giants: If the Eagles fail to care for enterprise in opposition to the Saints, they’re going to need to beat the Giants in Week 18. If the Giants beat the Colts, they’re going to clinch a playoff spot, and sure relaxation their starters in Week 18, which might profit the Eagles in the event that they want that recreation.

If the Eagles beat the Saints, although, it is higher if the Colts win, for Saints draft decide positioning functions.

Gross positioning

Every week in the past, the Saints’ first-round decide, which in fact is owned by the Eagles, was ninth general. With the Saints’ win over the Browns Week 16, it dropped to tenth general. As at all times, we ignite the mock draft simulator each week only for enjoyable:

• Decide No. 10: Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia: He does not drop to 10, however no matter.

• Decide No. 31: Jared Verse, Edge, Florida State: Massive season at FSU in 2022 after transferring from Albany.

• Decide No. 63: Drew Sanders, LB, Arkansas: Massive-hitting, productive, athletic off-ball linebacker/edge defender hybrid.

• Decide No. 95: Mazi Smith, DT, Michigan: Large, super-athletic inside linebacker.

• Decide #196: Julius Brents, CB, Kansas State: 6’4 exterior CB with ball abilities.

• Decide #227: Sydney Brown, S, Syracuse: Massive-time athlete who had 6 INTs in 2022.

Anyway, getting again on observe, try the highest 18, by Tankathon:

  1. Texans: 2-12-1
  2. Bears: 3-12
  3. Broncos (owned by the Seahawks): 4-11
  4. Cardinals: 4-11
  5. Colts: 4-10-1
  6. Falcons: 5-10
  7. Rams (owned by the Lions): 5-10
  8. Panthers: 6-9
  9. Raiders: 6-9
  10. Saints (owned by the Eagles): 6-9
  11. Browns (owned by the Texans): 6-9
  12. Titans: 7-9
  13. Seahawks: 7-8
  14. Mother and father: 7-8
  15. Jets: 7-8
  16. Steelers: 7-8
  17. Packers: 7-8
  18. Lions: 7-8

Each the ceiling and the ground of that Saints decide can enhance this week. Listed here are the perfect winners round the remainder of the league by draft place, in no explicit order:

• Panthers at pirates: The Bucs will clinch the NFC South with a win over the Panthers. This recreation is critical on two fronts:

  1. It may remove the Saints from the playoffs.
  2. It ensures that the 5 seed (virtually definitely the Cowboys) should face Tom Brady within the wild card spherical as an alternative of the Panthers or Saints.

The remainder:

  1. Cardinals at Falcons
  2. Bears at lions
  3. Broncos at Chiefs
  4. Dolphins at Mother and father
  5. Browns at Commanders
  6. Jaguars at Texans
  7. Jets at Seahawks
  8. Rams at Chargers
  9. Steelers at Ravens

Tremendous Bowl Clock

And eventually, to not get too far forward of ourselves, however the Monday Evening Soccer recreation is between two groups with professional Tremendous Bowl aspirations within the AFC within the Payments and Bengals. In order that might be enjoyable to look at from a “potential future opponent” perspective.
