Here’s what the crystal ball says about the Philadelphia Eagles’ second game.
If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan that’s a member of an office pool or something of that nature, you have to be questioning your football acumen right now. How are those game-by-game predictions going?
Some of you might be in good shape, but if you’re like most of the country and you guessed that the mighty and, to some extent, new-look Eagles, led by Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz would take the measure of the Washington Football Team in Week 1, a team that was led by a new head coach and signal-caller who doesn’t have ten career starts under his belt, you’re probably eating those words now.
But hey. Hopefully, you didn’t put any money on the game. What else can you do now, other than reload, refocus, and get ready for another conference showdown? This is Philly’s home opener. They’ll meet the Los Angeles Rams, and after going 0-1 and blowing a 17-point lead to a divisional opponent, this team can’t afford to lose a second-straight game, one that will give them two conference losses after two weeks.
Dare we say the words ‘must-win game’ already? Here are five bold predictions as at the time of this story being published we’re less than 24 hours from kickoff.
