The Eagles are back in the mix after their 35-28 win against the Patriots put them within a game of the NFC East lead.

And the NFL is looking to cash in, utilizing the Eagles’ Week 15 matchup against the NFC West-leading Cardinals and moving it from 1 p.m. to 8:25 p.m.

The move comes as somewhat of a surprise, as the Panthers play the Giants that week as well. Carolina could very well be unbeaten at that point (14-0).

But the Eagles, with tie-breakers in toe, can win the division by winning their final four games, regardless of the outcome of Monday night’s Cowboys-Redskins battle.

The Eagles host the Bills in Week 13 at 1 p.m., welcoming former Eagle LeSean McCoy back to town.

The game will be Philly’s sixth prime time game of the season. Kickoff will be at 8:25 p.m. on NBC.
