Well, once again the jolly, fat man delivered on Christmas.
No, not Santa. I’m talking about Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid, who delivered to me and all Eagles fans a HUGE and impressive 23-7 win over the despised Dallas Cowboys today that clinched a playoff spot for the Birds.
The victory gave the Eagles a 9-6 record and pulled them into a tie with Dallas for the lead in the NFC East. However, since the Eagles swept the Cowboys this season, Philadelphia owns the tie-breaker and the No. 1 spot in the division.
The Eagles only need to beat the Atlanta Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on New Year’s Eve to wrap up their fifth NFC East title in six years.
