The Philadelphia Eagles came into Christmas Eve as one of the hottest teams in the NFL with a decent shot at the NFC East division title. Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets did his best to eliminate the Eagles from playoff contention, but the Eagles remained one of the hottest teams regardless.
The Eagles' recent hot play obviously came a little too late, but it gives fans a lot to look forward to. The Eagles can't make the playoffs this season, and that makes a lot of playoff contenders in the NFC very happy. A red-hot Eagles team as the fourth seed would be a very scary playoff matchup.
The offense is clicking on all cylinders, and the defense has been lights out the past three weeks. Hey, there's always next season.
