It had to be an NFL "dream come true."  The final playoff schedule wasn't decided until nearly the final possession of the last regular season game.  The Philadelphia Eagles filled in the final blank intercepting a Kyle Orton pass with 2 minutes left for a 24-22 win.  That gave the Eagles the NFC East title.  Click to see the playoff matchups and TV schedule.
