Here are ten Philadelphia Eagles who are going to have to step up and help lead the way for the rest of the 2019 campaign.
Have you looked at the Philadelphia Eagles‘ upcoming schedule? No, this is serious. Once you’re done reading this, stop what you’re doing, pull up the Eagles’ schedule, and take a serious look at the upcoming games. It sounds cliche to say this, but this stretch of the calendar will decide the season.
The race is tight all over the NFC as opposed to the AFC, where most believe that, regardless of what you saw on Sunday Night football recently, the American Football Conference is probably, in all likelihood, a two-team race.
In the National Football Conference, it just feels like Week 4 losses will wind up being tiebreakers later that will end up deciding who goes to the playoffs or, at minimum, where they’re positioned if they get in.
At 3-2, the Eagles already have two losses in the conference, and that’s important. As you know, a road trip to face the Minnesota Vikings is next up on the agenda. After that, Philly heads to Arlington to face the hated Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
They stay on the road in Week 8 and travel to upstate New York where they’ll find their former defensive coordinator Sean McDermott and a very scrappy Buffalo Bills team. They return home in Week 9, but they get the Chicago Bears. Then, there’s a bye, and they’ll see the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. Now, in all honesty, they could realistically win all of those games or lose all of them. That’s how thin the line is between winning and losing in this league.
Leadership will decide what happens. Here are ten guys who must step up the rest of the way.
