16. Miami Dolphins: Play on Monday Night Football vs. New Orleans Saints
The Miami Dolphins enter Week 16 on a six-game winning streak and it could very well become a seven-game streak due to the issues their opponent is facing. The New Orleans Saints already lost Jamies Winston earlier this year and now had to place Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian on the COVID list.
With all that being said, they’re down to their fourth quarterback of the season, Ian Book. Of course, Miami can’t take anything for granted but they could improve to 8-7 with a win in this one. However, the road gets tough after that as they close things out with the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots.
15. Philadelphia Eagles
There was a lot of hype for Washington in the NFC East but it’s been the Philadelphia Eagles who are trying to make a run. While they’re not going to be able to catch Dallas, they did improve to 8-7 on the season with a convincing win over the New York Giants in Week 16.
It was their third win in a row and was also a bit of revenge since their only loss in the last six games came at the hands of the Giants.
Philadelphia has two games against East opponents in Washington and Dallas and if they manage to finish with a winning record, that could be huge. But they could also sneak into the postseason, which seemed impossible earlier this year.
