PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — What if I told you the Eagles would finish second in the NFC East behind the New York Giants and lose in the first-round of the playoffs, to those same Giants, by one point? Predictionmachine.com, which calculates their 2014 NFL season predictions by playing each NFL game 50,000 times, projected exactly that.

Using an adjusted strength-of-schedule, relevant statistics from every player’s career to a fairly traditional player development curve that considers age and previous playing time, Prediction Machine has concluded the Eagles would be the second wild-card in the NFC, heading into the postseason as a No. 6 seed, and losing their first-round matchup at the Giants 27-26.

Prediction Machine has the Eagles ranked as the eighth best team, the third best offensive team, but the second-to-worst defensive team in the NFL. The Eagles are given a 46.5% chance at making the playoffs, but only a 2.1% chance at winning the Super Bowl. Prediction Machine also says the Eagles biggest strength will be their “league’s best” offensive line.

Ultimately, the Denver Broncos are predicted to beat the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl, 24-23. Good thing they actually have to play the games.
