Here are the Philadelphia Eagles’ next two games on the schedule.

Philly’s final stop in October on their ride through the 2020 NFL season doubles as the Eagles’ first of the usual two annual games played versus the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott is out. If Mike McCarthy was a pro athlete we’d be calling him a bust, and following the injury to Andy Dalton, the Cowboys are relying on something called Ben DiNucci to resurrect their season.

Here’s a statement that is as objective as any statement can be. If you’re an Eagles fan, you should be embarrassed that your team had to rally to beat a very bad Giants team. This might be a game that’s even more winnable, so if Philly doesn’t win this game and win big, it may be time to start asking if this team can beat anyone else left on their schedule that doesn’t play in the NFC East. Prediction: Eagles 31, Cowboys 13

31. . . . New York Giants, November 15th. . player

Following Philly’s bye in Week 9, they’re scheduled to do battle with ‘Big Blue’ for the second time in a span of about 25 days. These are the games that the ‘Birds’ should win easy, and so far, even though this team’s fans have seen them play up to the level of better teams on occasion (the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens), they’ve also witnessed them struggle versus teams that should fall under the category of inferior (Washington, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the ‘G-Men’).

If you’re going to make the argument that good games versus better teams are moral victories, you also have to acknowledge that close wins versus bad teams don’t feel like wins at all. Prediction: Eagles 24, Giants 17
