Either way, the Eagles won’t change their plans for Christmas night.
That’s the word straight from Eagles coach Doug Pederson, who was asked by reporters if there’s a dual plan for whether the Vikings lose or the Vikings win. And it was literally the word. As in one word.
“No,” Pederson said.
"I think it's important that they continue to play," Pederson said. "If we're in that position, if we're fortunate to be in that position to rest, I'll make that decision at that time. I think it's important that we continue to play."
This is good news for fantasy owners. Even if the Eagles were to clinch home field advantage Saturday, it appears safe to start your Eagles on Monday night. As always, check our latest rankings updates before lineup lock for your players.
