The Eagles are NFC East Champs!

The Philadelphia Eagles (9-7) trekked to the Meadowlands in what can be described as a playoff game.

Simply put, win and get in playoffs.

Philadelphia found a way to get it accomplished with a 34-17 defeat of the rival, Giants.

Philadelphia has dealt with adversity, in the form of injuries and, after Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson went down, Carson Wentz was dealing with only four offensive players who were on the squad on Opening Day.

Yet again, a Star Was Born and the Star is Boston Scott… former Practice squad player, Scott tallied three rushing touchdowns  ( 2,2 and 7 yards) and picked up 54 yards on the ground and another 84 on 4 catches.

Philadelphia had a battle all afternoon and, in the 3rd Quarter, Daquon Barkley scampered 68 yards to tie the game, 17-17.

The Eagles gutted it out and slammed the door on the New York offense to Clinch the East Division.

Note: Wentz became a franchise record holder with his 4,039 passing yards.

Wentz had another stellar day, with a 23 of 40 passing and acquiring 281 yards and a Touchdown.

Philadelphia awaits the winner of the late game to see if they are welcoming San Francisco or Seattle to the Linc in the Wildcard playoff game.
