The Philadelphia Eagles’ final three games begin with a tough contest in the desert.
Venue: State Farm Stadium, Date: Sunday, December 20th, Time: 4:05 PM EST (Week 15)
The young and potentially surprising Arizona Cardinals have a lot going for them in this one. They’ve got the legend, Larry Fitzgerald, who’s always been a bit of an Eagles killer, and they’ve got one of the game’s human cheat codes in DeAndre Hopkins.
Fortunately, the Eagles added Darius Slay and Nickell Robey-Coleman in the offseason, and that should neutralize that some. The Eagles will win this one, and here’s why. You have to feel a little better about Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz than you feel about Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray right now. Prediction: Eagles – 24, Cards – 17 (Record: 8-6)
Venue: AT&T Stadium, Date: September 27th, Time: 4:25 PM EST (Week 16)
You can always count on some tight, highly contested games between the Eagles and the Cowboys regardless of what their records are. Most believe the NFC East will be won by one of these two rivals. This game, like last year’s Week 16 game between these two, will decide the NFC East.
Expect a close one, but expect an Eagles victory and a second-straight division title. Prediction: Good guys – 20, Bad guys – 17 (Record: 9-6)
Venue: Lincoln Financial Field, Date: Sunday, January 3rd Time: 1 PM EST (Week 17)
In Week 17, the “Birds” end their regular-season campaign in the same manner that they began, with a game versus the Washington Football Team. Just like Week 1, Eagles fans will be treated to a win versus their old foes in a game in which Washington will have nothing to play for. Prediction: Philly – 27, Washington – 10 (Record: 10-6)
