Week 16: vs. Dallas Cowboys
Hopefully, Doug Pederson won’t dare to guarantee a win and give the Cowboys some bulletin board material during Week 16. The Eagles were flat-out embarrassed by Dallas two weeks ago, and we believe they needed that whooping to wake them up.
Without beating out Dallas for the division, the Eagles more than likely aren’t going to be able to get themselves into the playoffs. They need to rally during this second-half and they will be on the right track to taking over the East.
The good news is that Dallas’ second-half schedule is no cupcake. They are a solid team, but they aren’t as good as they looked against an Eagles team that hardly even showed up two weeks back. An afternoon game in Philly, potentially for the division, will make for some fantastic football. This game will come down to the wire, but the Eagles pull it off to avoid getting swept against Dallas for the second season in a row.
