The division that nobody seemed to want to win this season could have an unlikely champion before the end of Saturday night. The NFC East title is hanging in the balance this weekend when the Philadelphia Eagles host Washington in a game that will go a long ways toward deciding the postseason fate of both teams.
Thanks to the Eagles and New York Giants both losing in Week 15, combined with Washington’s win over the Buffalo Bills, Jay Gruden’s club can clinch its first division title since 2012 with a win in Philly.
At 7-7, the team has a one-game lead in the standings with two games to go. A win by Washington would give the Eagles their ninth loss, eliminating them from the race. It would also wrap up the tiebreaker advantage over New York, regardless of what the Giants do in their final two games.

This will be their fourth straight playoff-less campaign, their longest drought since the current playoff format was established in 1990. They are also the only NFL team in that span to win a Super Bowl and then miss in the postseason in the next four years.

The Giants certainly had their chances to avoid this disappointing outcome. They’re masters of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, thanks to some questionable late game play-calling and a dreadful defense that’s been unable to get stops in the two-minute drill. They’ve been this close to owning the two biggest wins of any team this season: they lost on walk-off field goals to the two best teams in the NFL â€” the Patriots and Panthers.
