Although the outcome would be meaningless with last week's elimination from the playoffs, the Eagles weren't ready to call it quits yet, defeating the New York Giants on the road by a score of 34-26. The win gives the Eagles a 10-6 record for the second consecutive year under Chip Kelly. Sanchez threw for 292 yards and two touchdowns to go with one interception. 10-6 was good enough to win the division last season, but wasn't enough this year, as the Cowboys finished 12-4 on the year.
Well, it doesn't look like the Eagles' season will go any further past next week's game against the Giants. While there is a small sliver of hope if the Eagles win next week and the Cowboys lose out, the odds are that the Eagles will be the odd man out come playoff time this year. The Eagles desperately needed a win against the 3-11 Redskins, but failed to do so, losing their 3rd consecutive game in a row by a score of 27-24 in overtime.
Mark Sanchez struggled throughout the night, as the Eagles lost to the Cowboys by a final score of 38-27. He threw for 252 yards on 17-28 passing, but did not throw for any touchdowns and threw two picks. The loss puts the Cowboys in sole possession of first place in the division, meaning the Eagles are no longer in control of their own destiny.
The Eagles dropped to 9-4 on the season after falling to the Seattle Seahawks by a final score of 24-14. The Eagles are still in first place in the division, due to the tiebreaker win over the Cowboys last week. They play the Cowboys again next week, with a win putting them in a great situation to seal up the division.
