PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Eagles' chances of winning the division are virtually over thanks to the team's overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday. 

And fans watching in town were unsurprisingly upset.

"Very depressed," added Patrick Mansfield. "That's how we end it, a play like that, that's how it ends? I'm at a loss for words for, like, the first time in my life."

He called losing to the Cowboys in this game a double whammy, because now the season is over. 

"It's a very, very depressing moment," he said. "We've got that hangover this year so we're not too sad when you think about. We got our first Super Bowl ever, but just to watch how mediocre they're performing this year is tough in general."

The Eagles aren't mathematically eliminated, but they've dug themselves in a hole they likely won't get out of.

But Jim McBride said he almost felt a sense of relief after this loss.

"It's been a rough season, but it's over," he said.

And like many Eagles fans are probably doing right now, McBride is using that Super Bowl win to cheer him up.

"I'll still enjoy last year's victory. I'll savor that for this year."
