After blowing a fourth quarter lead against the Lions at Lincoln Financial Field last season, the Eagles look to avoid letting another potential win slip away.
The Eagles need this win to nudge ahead of the Cardinals in the playoff race, just in case. It will not be easy with Arizona finding a bit of a hot streak over the last month. This will be a true character game for the Eagles that could demonstrate what this team will be made of the rest of the year.
The Eagles and Redskins appear to be meeting this week heading in opposite directions. While it seems the Eagles may have started to find a little bit of a groove, the Redskins continue to stumble their way through the season and are in real danger of not being able to defend their NFC East crown.
The Eagles and Raiders have met 10 times in the regular season dating back to 1971 and have split the record right down the middle. Of course, the Raiders won the most important game between the two long-time franchises, with a 27-10 victory in Super Bowl XV. The Eagles are just 1-3 all-time against the Raiders in their house, with the only win coming in 1986 when Randall Cunningham scored a short touchdown run in overtime for a 33-27 win in Los Angeles. The Eagles are 0-3 in Oakland.
Nobody would have expected that Eli Manning and the Giants would be getting their first win in late October, but that is what happened this season. The Giants beat the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night and look for revenge against rival Eagles this Sunday.
The Giants may have been the worst team the Philadelphia Eagles have faced this season, but the Buccaneers are almost as much of a mess right now. Greg Schiano is likely to be looking for a new job at the end of the season unless he can pull a miracle this season.
Talk about a game where both teams need a win. The Eagles have lost three straight games and the Giants have yet to win one. What should concern the Eagles this weekend is walking in to a buzz saw.
Denver is a legitimate Super Bowl contender right now, and their offense has all of the tools to take advantage of this Eagles defense. If the Eagles can manage to tighten up their ball protection and get the offense back on track, it still may not be enough this weekend.
The Kansas City Chiefs are off to a 2-0 start this season, which matches the entire win total from a season ago. So who exactly are these Kansas City Chiefs?
The San Diego Chargers will come to Philadelphia looking to get over a collapse at home on Monday night. While the Eagles enjoyed a road victory on Monday night, the Chargers gave up 24 unanswered second half points to the Houston Texans to drop their season opener at home.
Washington is coming into the new season on a seven-game win streak, and they aren’t looking to end that any time soon. The Philadelphia Eagles need to try and focus on every offensive weapon the Redskins have and stay away from their defensive stars. Philly also needs to expose RG3 if his knee really isn’t 100 percent, and force him into making mistakes.
