The Philadelphia Eagles will travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills this week for their third-straight road game.
The last couple of weeks have been somewhat of a disaster for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not only are injuries taking a toll on this team — but so are underperforming players and locker room concerns. From anonymous texting to television appearances — the Eagles locker room just doesn’t sound like it is in one piece right about now.
We know what happens when locker rooms begin to fall apart. Teams start to lose, and they tend to lose badly. So far, the Eagles are going down that path. With a loss to the Vikings by an 18-point margin two weeks ago, the Eagles failed to bounce back by losing to the Cowboys by 27 points.
Now, the Eagles have a trip to Buffalo planned on Sunday, and they will face a Bills team we aren’t quite used to seeing. When the schedule initially came out, it felt like Week 8 against the Bills could be somewhat of a breeze. That’s no longer the case.
Going into this matchup at 3-4, the Eagles have to face a Bills team that’s 5-1. Granted, their strength of competition hasn’t been very high, but on the flip side, they gave the undefeated Patriots a run for their money holding the New England offense to only 16 points.
In other words, the Bills just might be the real deal. The Eagles, however, do not have an identity as a team yet. But this week will be yet another major test. Can they bounce back and even out their overall record? They will need these five key players to play some of their best ball this week in order to do so.
