UPDATE: The Eagles crushed the Giants 48-22 and have clinched a playoff berth. They have not yet clinched the NFC East title, but are moving closer.

The Philadelphia Eagles head into Week 14 cruising along atop the NFC East. They are 11-1 and hold a two game lead on the Dallas Cowboys. They can’t clinch the division for at least a couple more weeks, but they have moved into position to secure a playoff berth this week when they travel to face the New York Giants.

The Eagles can clinch a playoff berth with a win or a tie against the Giants. Additionally, they can clinch a berth if both the 49ers and Seahawks lose on Sunday. If the Eagles win and the Cowboys lose a shocker to the Texans in Week 14, the Eagles still couldn’t clinch the division until at least Week 16.

Philadelphia is a touchdown favorite against New York on Sunday at DraftKings Sportsbook. They are a -300 favorite on the moneyline while the Giants are a +250 underdog. The 49ers host the Bucs on Sunday and are a field goal favorite in QB Brock Purdy’s first start in place of Jimmy Garoppolo. The Seahawks host the Panthers on Sunday and are a four-point favorite.
