The Eagles (2-4-1) find themselves in front of a prime-time audience for the second consecutive week. This week, they will play host to the divisional foe Dallas Cowboys (2-5) on Sunday Night Football.
While both teams are leaking oil in key areas, it is evident that the Cowboys are dealing with significant internal turmoil, and an inevitable implosion is looming...
The Philadelphia Eagles found a way to sneak out of Lincoln Financial Field with a victory thanks to Carson Wentz and the offense. They were down 21-10 with 6 minutes left in the game and Wentz led the team on back-to-back drives to take the lead. His most noticeable throw was to Boston Scott down the sideline for the game-winning touchdown and let me tell you, this throw was ELITE. This was coming after a Jason Kelce facemask which brought the Eagles away from the goal-line and you could argue it was a blessing in disguise based off of their redzone numbers. Doug Pederson had so many head-scratching plays, I don't even know where to begin.
As the Eagles prepared to square off against perpetual NFC East cellar dwellers in the Washington Football Team, the initial expectation was that the Eagles would cruise on a relatively smooth road to victory.
