The Philadelphia Eagles might not be good enough to win the east, but the wild card is certainly within their grasp. They put a beatdown on the Falcons last week, showing they can play with the best in the conference and weather it's Michael Vick or Kevin Kolb running the show they keep winning games.
The defense is still a solid aggressive unit that loves to get to the QB and while DeSean Jackson might be out the next few weeks, the big play ability is still there and LeSean McCoy is doing a good job with the carries he's getting in a pass friendly offense.
The schedule doesn't work in their favor however, as they've played just one division game so far, (which they lost) but coach Andy Reid has done a great job of getting the Eagles up for big games in his tenure with the team.
The Atlanta Falcons will also make a return to the playoffs after missing last season due to injuries to their star players. Micheal Turner is having a great season after being banged up most of last year and Matt Ryan continues to show maturity and poise in the pocket.
What's even better for them, is their defense has played above expectations so far this season. They're still getting torched through the air, but this season they've been able to stop the run making it harder for teams to get in third and short situations. They also have five games left in their division and have already beaten the Saints this season, so the rest of the division shouldn't be too much of a problem.
