In view of a weak NFC East were the Eagles able to take full advantage to make the playoffs. Philadelphia overcame an underachieving Dallas Cowboys team to take the divisional title. The combination of a stout run defense and timely offense propelled the Eagles to Pro Football betting success. However, Philadelphia finds themselves as a Wild Card home dog. Seattle would have won the NFC East with ease. But in the highly competitive NFC West they had to settle for wild card status. Compared to most other playoff teams the Seahawks are fully capable of a Super Bowl run.
