How NFL playoff hunt shakes out after Eagles stunner

The defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are still in the playoff hunt at 8-7 following their last-second win over Houston.

The Eagles rallied to beat the Texans 32-30 on Jake Elliott’s 35-yard field goal as time expired, completing a remarkable win backed by Nick Foles, who went 35-of-49 for 471 yards with four touchdowns and an interception.

That denied the Texans the AFC South title and a first-round bye in the playoffs and put the New England Patriots back into the No. 2 spot in the AFC playoff standings.

The Patriots won their 10th consecutive AFC East title with a win over Buffalo.

The Chiefs can wrap up the top seed in the AFC with a win over Seattle in the late game today.

The Patriots haven’t had to play in the wild-card round since 2009.

In the NFC, the Saints, Rams, Bears and Cowboys have all clinched their divisions and the Seahawks (8-6) and Vikings (8-6-1) are clinging to the two wild-card spots.

But the Eagles are still in the hunt thanks to their last-second win.
