Gotta keep winning

The Eagles rejuvenated their playoff chances with an improbable win over the Rams, but if they want a realistic shot to make the playoffs, they need to win out. That starts with a win over the Texans on Sunday. How important is this game? Well, according to FiveThirtyEight, if the Eagles win, their playoff chances are up to 53 percent, but if they lose, they'll be down to 12 percent. 

While the Eagles need to keep winning, it won't be enough if the Vikings and Seahawks keep winning too. If those two teams win out, it won't matter what the Eagles do. They wouldn't be able to get a wild card spot. 

There's an outside chance the Eagles could still win the NFC East, but that would take the Eagles' winning out and the Cowboys' losing out. 

More Foles-magic?

Nick Foles didn't fill up the stat sheet last week, but he had a really good game and helped the Eagles pick up a win. Can he really do this again? Obviously, this is a much different situation than when he took over the starter's role last season from Carson Wentz. But we know he can go on a run and he needs to go on a run right now. 

The last time he played the Texans, Foles broke his collarbone down at NRG Stadium in Houston in 2014 and Mark Sanchez took over. A lot has changed since then. 

On the lines

The Eagles' offensive and defensive lines played great last week, which is the biggest reason they have a chance to get to the playoffs. The Texans have a very good defensive line but not a great offensive line. If the Eagles can win the battles in the trenches, they can win this game. But it won't be easy to slow down J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.
