The Philadelphia Eagles might very well be playing Wild Card Weekend. The team leads the New York Giants on Sunday. With a victory over their division rivals, the Eagles will earn the NFC East championship.

Unfortunately, injuries have defined Philadelphia’s season. That came out in droves in the second quarter of Sunday’s game after Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks was carted off the field with an apparent arm injury.

This could be potentially devastating news for an Eagles offense that’s already without Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz and longtime center Jason Kelce.

With a win Sunday, Philadelphia will host either Seattle or San Francisco in the Wild Card round next week.

The hope here is that Brooks’ injury is not as serious as it seems. The Eagles did note that their Pro Bowler is questionable to return.
