If Dallas beats Washington on Sunday, the Week 17 matchup between the Eagles and the Cowboys will determine the NFC East division title regardless of the result of the Sunday night matchup between the Eagles and the Chicago Bears.
Head coach Chip Kelly said that he will not rest his players if that scenario presents itself.
"We have to get back on a winning track," Kelly said.
On the flip side, if Dallas loses to Washington then the Eagles can clinch their first NFC East title since 2010 with a win over the Bears.
The game will be important for the Bears nonetheless. Chicago currently holds a half-game lead over Detroit and Green Bay in the NFC North. The Lions play on Monday Night Football against the Ravens and will assume first place with a win since they hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over Chicago.
On a bigger scale, Sunday night's matchup between the Eagles and the Bears will also impact seeding for the NFC playoffs no matter who wins the respective divisions.
