The Philadelphia Eagles are the underdogs heading into Week 11.

In Week 11, the Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled for a trip to FirstEnergy Stadium to meet the 6-3 Cleveland Browns. This is the 50th time these two franchises have met one another, with the series lead belonging to the Browns (31-17-1). Recent history has been kind to the Birds as they’ve taken the last five matchups in the series.

A lot of things have changed since the last time these two teams played one another. The Browns are on track to have their first winning record season since 2007 and the Eagles, as of now, have one of the worst records in franchise history. Even with a winning record though, Cleveland is in third place in the AFC North and the Eagles, despite a losing record, currently, still hold the lead in the NFC East. That’s crazy, right?

The Browns also have a new quarterback. You may have heard of him. His name is Baker Mayfield. Their head coach is a new one, Kevin Stefanski. Cleveland’s new general manager is a former member of the Eagles family, Philly’s former vice president of football operations, Andrew Berry.

With all the new changes for Cleveland, they have still managed to create an identity fairly quickly, and that’s, unfortunately, something that the Eagles haven’t done. We’ll all dive more into that, as well as answer some of the major questions surrounding this game. Hey, there’s no better time than the present right?
