The Eagles are five spots ahead of Dallas on Yahoo Sports.
Lastly, we have Yahoo Sports who ranked not only teams but potential MVP candidates at the quarterback position as well. Carson Wentz comes in third on a list that’s topped by the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes (Dak Prescott ranks eighth), and Philly comes in third on an NFL Power Ranking where Dallas barely cracks the top ten at number ten.
Here are the thoughts of Frank Schwab, the writer of this one.
"If Carson Wentz stays healthy all season, the Eagles can win a Super Bowl and Wentz can win MVP. If he is hurt again, I’m not sure the Eagles can make the playoffs. Yes, you can say all of that about many quarterbacks but given Wentz’s recent injury history, it seems more relevant to Philadelphia."
While all of these are nice talking points, we all know that games are won on the field, not on sports blogs and in magazines.
Ladies and gentlemen, we made it. Week 1 is upon us, and the experts seem to agree. The NFC East may, again, have a new champion. Can the Eagles capture a second Lombardi Trophy too? A win versus the Redskins at home would be an awesome start to what may be a great season.
In the meantime, you can circle those really intriguing games on the schedule. Week 7 and Week 16 definitely qualify. Those are both of Philly’s annual clashes with the Cowboys.
