1. The Philadelphia Eagles are going to win their remaining divisional games.

Philly truly shot themselves in the foot by losing that first game versus the Washington Football Team, but everything is going to be okay. After wins over both the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys in consecutive weeks, Philly has a 2-1 record in this division with three divisional games remaining.

Week 10’s contest is a rematch of their Thursday night game versus Big Blue. The Cowboys are slated for two days after Christmas. The Birds close 2020’s show with a home game versus the Washington Football Team. That one may decide the division even if Washington won’t be the team with the best shot at winning it.

Yes, two of those three games are on the road, but Philly should win all three. No, scratch that. Philly will win all three games. They’re getting healthy. They have the most talent of all four NFC East teams. If they limit the mistakes and they don’t turn the ball over, there’s no reason to believe that they won’t exit each of those games as the victor.

Philly’s remaining games outside of the division are against the Cleveland Browns, the Seattle Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers, the New Orleans Saints, and the Arizona Cardinals. Even if they lose all five of those games, which sadly is a real possibility, they’d finish the 2020 regular season campaign with a 6-9-1 record which, sadly, might be good enough to win the division and earn them a home playoff game. Here’s why.
