4. Simply put, can the Philadelphia Eagles win this game?

This is a question that’s being asked more frequently, especially after the Giants took care of business versus the Washington Football Team, and to be honest, the answer is yes. There’s no reason to believe the Eagles can’t lose this game.

The New York Giants are the most talented team in the NFC East outside of Philly. The Giants are aware of the recent struggles that Carson Wentz has had in protecting the ball, so they are going to look to continue to attempt to throw 11 off of his rhythm.

New York will capitalize on any mistakes that the Eagles make, especially if Philly shows up unprepared (as they have done before). The Giants are fully capable of running away with this one. With his team coming off of their bye week, it’s up to Doug Pederson to ensure that his team is prepared.

With many key players returning to the lineup (hopefully), Wentz has all of the tools necessary to lead his team to a season sweep over the Giants. Philly has had time to rest. They have also had time to work out a few kinks. As long as Wentz protects the ball, the playcalling and execution are better, and the game plan is sound, the Eagles should have no issues walking out of MetLife Stadium as the winners.
