Every Philadelphia Eagles fan can agree that they’ve thought about this.

As mentioned, both teams are extremely limited and leave a lot to be desired, but both teams are also within striking distance of a divisional crown. When two teams know each other this well, games often come down to a few great individual efforts. Let’s talk about some of the talent for a few ticks.

3. Okay, so who is James Bradberry covering?

James Bradberry, earlier this week, spoke a little bit about some of the strengths of the Giants defense. In the first game between these two age-old rivals, he picked off a Carson Wentz pass in the end zone. The question is, with Jalen Reagor and Alshon Jeffery back in the lineup, who will he spend most of his time covering?

4. Can Carson Wentz finally limit the turnovers?

It’s been said a thousand times. It will continue until he starts playing better. Carson Wentz has been horrible, but all NFL quarterbacks will struggle from time to time. Come on. We’ve even asked if Tom Brady and Drew Brees were washed up this season.

The problem with 11’s struggles is this. He isn’t being held accountable, and he doesn’t seem to be worried about what he’s doing. He’s thrown an interception in every game the Eagles have played this season minus Week 6’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He did lose a fumble in that one though. He’s got four of those on the season, so yes, whether you like it or not. This will come up every week until it stops happening.
