PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Eagles fans are dreaming of a trip to the playoffs after Sunday's thrilling 32-30 win against the Texans in the final seconds of the game.

The Foles factor and is re-energizing the faithful. But are the Birds playoff-bound?

Steve Chang of Berlin, New Jersey, offered his assessment.

"I still have hopes to the make the playoffs," he said. "And once we're in, it's anybody's game."

"We have to wait 'til next week to confirm what we're really gonna do," said another fan. "Are we gonna make it to the playoffs? Are we not?"

And if they do clinch, all who spoke to KYW Newsradio want No. 9 Nick Foles on the field.

"I know the team plays better right now than they ever did this whole season for wentz," said one. 

"Wentz is hurt," added another. "He's not playing 100 percent. Nick Foles is playing good. The team likes it. Let's go!"
