The Philadelphia Eagles suffered the second-biggest upset of the season Sunday, losing to the Arizona Cardinals who were +550 underdogs on the road. While the loss was rough, the ramifications of the loss are even more consequential for Philly.

The Cowboys are now favorites to win the NFC East after the Eagles loss. Entering Week 17, the Eagles were -350 to win the division while the Cowboys were +280. After the loss, the Cowboys are now -900 to win the NFC East at DraftKings.

For the past few weeks, the Eagles have been significant favorites to win the division, but are just 1-5 in their past five games, including a 33-13 blowout against the Cowboys. Meanwhile, Dallas pulled out a dramatic 20-19 win Saturday night against the Lions after a controversial 2-point conversion.

The Cowboys are 3-point favorites on the road against the Washington Commanders in Week 18 while the Eagles are 6.5-point favorites at the Meadowlands against the New York Giants. If both teams win and finish with the same record, the Cowboys own the tiebreaker based on conference record since both teams split their two matchups this season.

If the Eagles end up losing the division, they'll be forced to play on the road in the Wild Card round against the Detroit Lions. A stunning turn of events for a team that had +170 odds to clinch the No. 1 seed in the conference just three weeks ago.
