Philadelphia Eagles: Way too early predictions for every game in 2020
Philly doesn’t just renew acquaintances with an in-state rival in 2020. They also get one of the Steelers’ most bitter rivals. The Eagles have a home date with last year’s Most Valuable Player, Lamar Jackson. That’s the first chance that they’ll have to meet him since his arrival in the pros, and he’ll be visiting Lincoln Finacial Field with what’s become an offensive juggernaut from the city of Baltimore.
Believe it or not, the Ravens have already reached Year 3 of the Lamar Jackson era. There have been fireworks and last year’s aforementioned MVP nod, but unless Baltimore makes a deep run in the NFL playoffs and does so this season, we’re all going start hearing about how Mr. Jackson can’t win a postseason game.
We’re a long way from those discussions though. The Ravens are a contender again and should be good for a while. They’re well-coached, and they can score with anyone. The “Birds”, thanks to a raucous home crowd at Lincoln Finacial Field, will win this one though, thanks to a last-second field goal in a shootout. ITI’s way-too-early prediction: Eagles 27, Ravens 24
