Are Next Few Weeks The Real Litmus Test For The 2018 Eagles?
After NFL Week 6, the Eagles record stands at 3-3 which places them a half game out of first place in the NFC East. The Eagles have scored the most Total Points in the NFC East (137) as they prepare for a tough stretch of games over the next 5 weeks against teams with a combined record of 13-9 with their bye week sandwiched in the middle.
The Sporting News NFL Writer Vinnie Iyer joined Josh Hennig on Monday discussing the opponents coming up for the Eagles over the next few weeks:
"(Eagles) got the Panthers and Jaguars and Cowboys (and) Saints ahead so that’s going to be a real indication of where this team is going to be after the next four weeks of the season. But at home, you figure really good chance to beat the Panthers who just not the same (team on the road) - The London game is a good swing game to see where they are at; The Jaguars are not playing like themselves now and so (if Eagles) win there, it builds some momentum. (They) have a Bye (Week) before facing the Cowboys there in Prime Time, I think it’s gonna set up well in a few weeks where they’ll have the control in the division that they are looking for.”
