NFL experts differ in their opinion of the difficult or ease of the Philadelphia Eagles schedule. Let’s predict some wins and losses for the 2019 campaign.

It’s just something about the NFL game that turns all of us into experts. It never fails. As soon as we get our fingertips on a new Philadelphia Eagles schedule, we jot ‘W’ or ‘L’ down by each individual game until we’ve constructed a win-loss total.

Sometimes, we’re right. Often, we’re wrong. Every single time, we have a ball doing so. It’s hard to forecast these things, but as long as a sports fan lives in all of us, it will never end.

2019’s regular season is approaching, and it’s time to do it again.

These days, it’s all about strength of schedule. Last season’s results determine three of this season’s opponents, and ladies and gentlemen, there’s something you need to understand. Even the discussion of whether or not Philly’s road will be tough can foster a disagreement.

Two of the NFL’s best writers, Around The NFL Editor  Gregg Rosenthal and John Breech of CBS Sports are on opposite sides. Rosenthal sees Philly’s road as a difficult one. Breech disagrees. He thinks Philly’s road will be pretty easy.

Let’s settle this. Here’s a way-too-early prediction of Philly’s win-loss total.
