Philadelphia Eagles Inside Slant 2008-12-17
The Eagles need help to make the playoffs. If they win their final two games against Washington and Dallas, they would finish 10-5-1. But both Tampa Bay and Atlanta are 9-5 and could clinch the two NFC wild-card spots with wins in their final two games.


Eagles coach Andy Reid said he has warned his team not to do any scoreboard-watching during Sunday's game against the Redskins at FedEx Field.

"I harp on that all year," he said. "You control what you can control. Don't stress out about the other stuff. We need to be concerned only with the Washington Redskins. We can't afford to get emotionally caught up in what's going on in those other games."

The Falcons travel to Minnesota to face the 9-5 Vikings on Sunday. The Bucs host the San Diego Chargers. Coincidentally, Vikings coach Brad Childress, who was formerly Reid's offensive coordinator in Philadelphia, could help the Eagles' playoff hopes if his team can beat the Falcons.

Reid said he and Childress talk on the phone every week, but he won't be giving his former protege any advice on how to beat the Falcons, who lost to the Eagles earlier this season, 27-14.

"I don't think he needs any help right now," Reid said. "He's doing very well. We'll talk, but I don't think he needs help."
