The Eagles now find themselves in a position they haven’t been in since they took the field in week one to face the Browns. They’re the favorites.
How do they handle the pressure? Will this be a letdown game? Can “Wentzamania” continue and lead the Eagles to a 4-0 start? These are all the questions that are being asked over and over this week.
