The Eagles have their eyes set on a much higher goal: home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs and a Super Bowl victory.
The NFC is very top heavy this season, and the Minnesota Vikings are breathing down the Eagles’ necks. Minnesota is 9-2 and only has one conference loss.
Lower in the standings are the Rams, the Saints, the Panthers, and the Falcons. All of those teams have three losses except for the Falcons who have four.
