Before the first game of the 2014 NFL season begins, let’s finish up predicting what the Philadelphia Eagles will accomplish during the second half of the regular season. Today we look at the Philadelphia Eagles regular NFL season wins and losses, part two.
Week 9 – @ Houston Texans – W
New head coach for the Houston Texans, Bill O’Brien, will be a good thing for a franchise that has been very unpredictable in recent years. There does not seem to be a surefire quarterback in position to lead this team to double-digit wins as of yet, but there is some top-notch talent on both sides of the football.
The Texans d-line arguably boasts the best defender in football, J.J. Watt, and recent number one overall draft pick, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney will probably be the defensive rookie of the year. The Philadelphia Eagles will have their hands full trying to stop these two freaks-of-nature, but Eagles head coach Chip Kelly should devise a way(s) to win this matchup.
Week 10 – Carolina Panthers – W
The Carolina Panthers will not be the force they were in 2013. They have a completely new receiving corps, their run-game is mediocre at best, and quarterback Cam Newton could still be battling lingering injuries. The Panthers defense is the truth, but beating a better team (the Eagles) at home is a tall order. The Eagles can walk away with a win.
