There are no redeeming factors for this Eagles team. They are the villains, case closed. They only lose when you have to root for them. Did they lose on purpose to screw the Giants? I highly doubt it, but if any city would relish the opportunity to screw New York, it's Philadelphia (I refuse to call it "Philly" because nicknames are for friends, and Philadelphia is no friend of mine).

With the Eagles' loss to the punchless Vikings, the Bears are left with nothing to play for (they can technically clinch the #1 seed, but they'd need the Falcons to lose to the Panthers...not happening). The Bears will now rest players in week 17, and the Packers will cruise into the playoffs.

Sorry folks, it's all over but the crying.
