The Eagles are the only undefeated team left in the NFL. However, with 10 weeks left, it looks like the Eagles can’t go undefeated for the rest of the year. Then you look at their upcoming schedule.
@HOU, WAS, @IND, GB, TEN, @NYG, @CHI, @DAL, NO and NYG
I mean, just look at this. Even worse (for Cowboys and Giants fans), almost all of Philly’s toughest fights will take place in Philadelphia. Titans, Packers, Saints and Giants games will finally be available at Lincoln Financial Field. I’m not saying Cowboys and Giants aren’t tough, but the Titans are arguably the best match for the Eagles of anyone on this list, the Saints have shown progress towards the end of the year, and the Packers, As poor as they looked, there was still Aaron Rodgers. Furthermore, the Eagles only have to face one of the teams that are about to say goodbye: the Chicago Bears. This year, the Bears are surprisingly solid, they won’t beat the Eagles. Sure, they added Chase Claypool, but the Eagles’ greatest strength is secondary. They also lost their best defensive player in Roquan Smith, so… yes.
“Any Sunday” is the saying, right? So can the Eagles lose one of these games? Sure. I’m not saying they’re definitely undefeated in the regular season. Rather, I am shocked that the Eagles might have the opportunity to do so.
Let’s look at each match individually:
Houston Texas – I don’t think I need to delve into this issue at all. Philly outperformed the Texans in every way. It will be an easy victory.
Washington commanders – Inappropriate midfield play from Washington will be their drop point. The Commanders are near the top of the league in terms of pressure ratio (4th place, at 26%). However, the Eagles’ attack has lost its way in recent weeks. The Commanders are also quite mediocre at the back, and the last time these two teams played in Washington, Philadelphia held them to 8 points (only 6 were allowed by the defense), all of which came in free time.
Indianapolis Colts – Sam Ehlinger. That’s all there is to say. Jonathan Taylor is also facing a nagging wound if that helps the argument.
Green Bay – This team is best when Rodgers is in good shape. Philadelphia’s sub-team this year has been terrible, and with Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon’s inconsistency in ball management, Rodgers will likely have to throw a lot. Not a good match.
Tennessee Titans – Possibly the best chance for any team to beat the Eagles. A heavy dose of Derrick Henry will go right between the teeth where the Eagles’ weakest defence. Defensively, the Titans are also pretty solid when running allowing only 4.2 yards per take (seventh in the NFL).
New York Giants – Giants are at their best when they control the clock. They’re third in the NFL for possession time this year. Eagle is the first. The lack of explosiveness in attack for the Giants will be their downfall. They should make a move at the receiver.
Chicago Bears – I mentioned this. No Roquan Smith would be a problem. Chase Claypool doesn’t help much with the secondary Philly’s strength. Their best chance to create explosive attacks will likely come from the odd use of their utility receivers like Claypool and Velus Jones Jr.
Dallas Cowboys – Even with the Cooper Rush, the Cowboys weren’t blown out of the water by the Eagles in Week 6. That said, most of Dallas’ offense came in the second half after the Eagles had taken the lead in a decent way. comfortable. If they don’t take their feet off the pedals, who knows what the final score will be.
New Orleans Saints – They just lost Michael Thomas in the off-season, but otherwise should have been at full strength. They have significantly improved offensively in recent weeks, coinciding with the resurgence of Alvin Kamara. However, I do not believe Andy Dalton will play better than Jalen Hurts.
New York Giants – see above
I’m not quite ready to say that the Eagles will definitely be invincible, but I can’t help but dream of the possibility. I don’t think they’re the best team in the league and so if they were to meet the Bills, Chiefs, or even the 49ers in the knockout stages, I wouldn’t be shocked if they pulled the 2007 Patriots. , an undefeated season is not only beyond its reach, but it seems more and more possible. Regardless of their playoff results, this will be the first 17-0 record in NFL history, and I hope we get to see that.
