PHILADELPHIA — Good morning. This afternoon will go a long way toward determining how the Philadelphia Eagles end their season.

The Birds host the Houston Texans at Lincoln Financial Field on CBS at 1 p.m., and with a win, the Eagles would continue their drive toward a playoff spot that seemed so unlikely a scant two weeks ago.

That, of course, was in the aftermath of a 29-23 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys on the road.

That, of course, was before the Eagles upset the Los Angeles Rams, 30-23.

So now the Texans are the next opponent. There are some intriguing matchups in the game, and the Texans boast some of the more interesting names in the sport — J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, Tyrann Mathieu, Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins, just to name a few. And the Eagles will have their work cut out for them.

They also need help.

Here’s everything you need to know for Sunday’s game.
