5 Games the Philadelphia Eagles Have to Win to Make the Playoffs

There are very few meaningless games in the NFL. With only 16 games in the regular season, one less win could mean the difference between 9-7 and 10-6, or a high seed versus a low seed. Unlike a sport such as baseball, where there seems to be an infinite number of games per season, every game in the NFL is a must-win game.

It is also true, however, that some games simply carry more weight. Whether that is because of the divisional rivalry, tiebreakers, or a gradient of the strength of one's team, consistent playoff teams are well-respected because they win the games that they should.
