Start time, channel, playoffs, how to watch and stream


The Eagles face the New York Giants at Meadowlands on Sunday, and as unimaginable as it might have seemed just a few weeks ago, the Birds will enter the playoff race solidly with a win.

The Minnesota Vikings (5-5) and San Francisco 49ers (5-5) currently hold the second and third NFC wildcard slots heading into Sunday. They are also facing each other today which means one will complete week 5-6. A victory for the Eagles would make the team 6-6, propelling the Birds into a playoff berth with five games to go and one of the smoothest schedules in the league.

The change in fortunes for the Birds is due to a mid-season shift from a first-pass team to an attack that hits opponents with a formidable ground attack. The Eagles have won three of their last four games, each with over 10 points. During this period, the team executed the ball 68% of the time over 870 meters, most yards in a four-game streak since 1950. They also ran over 200 yards in consecutive games for the first time since 1978.

“The ability of Jalen Hurts, what he does on the pitch, that empowers the whole team,” said Mina Kimes, ESPN NFL analyst. NFL Live Friday, comparing the team’s hasty offense to the 2012 Seattle Seahawks under Russell Wilson, who won the Super Bowl the following year.

“Watch the linebackers play against the Eagles. Every game they don’t know what to do, ”Kimes said. “This is an extremely difficult racing game to defend and an extremely fun racing game to watch.”

Not only are the Eagles strong in the hunt for wildcards, but they’re also still alive in the NFC East, thanks to the Dallas Cowboys, who have lost three of their last four games and suffered a string of injuries. The Birds are only two games away from first place in the division before Sunday, although the Cowboys also have an easy schedule to end the season. (They are scheduled to face the Arizona Cardinals on Jan.2.)

Just a few weeks ago angry Birds fans threw flowers at Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni. Who laughs at his flower power metaphor now?
