Week 5 vs. New York Jets – Oct. 6th, 1:00 PM
The New York Jets will be a much better team in 2019 than they were last season after spending a good chunk of change on veteran free agents. Will they be dominant though? It all depends on their now second-year veteran quarterback, Sam Darnold. They gave him the tools to succeed, but now he has to execute. New York won’t be an easy win, but I see Darnold struggling at the Linc.
Results: Eagles win, 5-0
Week 6 at Minnesota Vikings – Oct. 13, 1 PM
Minnesota Vikings fans will have this one marked on their calendars as they get to host the Eagles for the first time since the NFC Championship in 2017. Vikings fans were not too pleased with Eagles fans behavior that day, and they probably want revenge this season. The Eagles played at the Vikings’ stadium once since it’s been built, but that was in Super Bowl LII, where it was a neutral site. This time around, Minnesota fans’ presence will be felt. This is a tough one, and the Eagles fall short on the road.
Results: Vikings win, 5-1
Week 7 at Dallas Cowboys – Oct. 20th, 8:20 PM
It’s a yearly occurrence where the Eagles play the Dallas Cowboys on the road while being broadcasted on primetime television. Last year, the Cowboys swept the Eagles. This year, Philly should be healthy and out for revenge. Generally, they play well against the Cowboys on the road, but in this case, the defending NFC East champions come out firing.
Results: Cowboys win, 5-2
Week 8 at Buffalo Bills – Oct. 27th, 1:00 PM
This marks the third-straight away game for the Eagles and here’s an interesting little tidbit – the Eagles are the only team in the NFL this year with three consecutive road games. Go figure. Buffalo is a tough place to play, but at least this matchup isn’t going down in the brutal winter cold. The Eagles should have no problem taking care of the Bills in this one.
