A lot of people have been saying the rest of the field in the NFC got lucky with Aaron Rodgers getting injured. As far as the Eagles go, they would still be 10-1 whether Rodgers has been playing or not, and with the way this team has been playing, I think the Eagles have a better team than the Packers, and while I will never count Rodgers out, I would/will fear them less if we had to meet in the playoffs in the slim chance they can climb their way back into things. They needed that win against the Steelers last week. They played surprisingly well, but of course we also know the Steelers make a habit of playing down to their opponents and did a swell job in allowing Hundley and the offense to make it a game with several blown coverages. With that said, if they can grab a win this week, it would go a long way in at least giving Rodgers a shot to work a miracle and get them in. The good thing for them is that they have Tampa Bay and the Browns coming up over the next two weeks, not the worst obstacle for them to overcome before facing three quality opponents in the Panthers, Vikings, and Lions. I'd rather not have to face Rodgers in the playoffs in any scenario, but I would be confident in the case that we had to. Should be interesting to see how the rest of their season plays out with these two weak opponents and needing some help along the way. I used the playoff path tool that VaBeach_Eagle found to mess around with some things for them and the Eagles as well. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/upshot/green-bay-packers-nfl-playoff-picture.html
