NFL: The Philadelphia Eagles Will Win The NFC If They Defeat The Chicago Bears

The Philadelphia Eagles will put themselves in a great position to finish the season with the best record in the NFC with a win against the Chicago Bears this Sunday. 

The matchup between the two 7-3 teams is one of the two most significant games left on Philadelphia's schedule; the other being the Week 15 road game against the New York Giants.  

Currently, seven NFC teams are battling for five playoff spots, as the sixth spot goes to the winner of the weak NFC West. 

The Atlanta Falcons are in first place in the AFC South and lead the NFC with a record of 8-2. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints, and Green Bay Packers are all 7-3, while the New York Giants have fallen to the back of pack with a record of 6-4. 

In the remaining six games, the Eagles play two of the seven teams, Chicago and New York, that are playoff contenders in the NFC. 

Other teams, such as the Falcons and Bears, play three of the seven teams fighting for the five playoff spots. 

A win in Chicago this weekend will greatly increase Philadelphia' chances of locking up a wild card spot and potentially give the Eagles a more comfortable lead in the NFC East. 

Here is how the Eagles' schedule compares to the other NFC contenders.
