Here’s the formula for a bounce-back win for the Philadelphia Eagles.
278 yards, two touchdowns, and a 29-10 victory. What an NFL debut it was for Carson Wentz versus the Cleveland Browns. Fast forward to 2020 and a lot has changed for both teams. The Philadelphia Eagles are 3-5-1 with major questions surrounding the entire organization. Cleveland, on the other hand, is rebuilding but feels like they can win now. They sit at 6-3 with a chance to break the NFL’s longest playoff drought.
Following Philadelphia’s bye week and embarrassed themselves versus the New York Giants. Not only that but four of the next five games are against teams that would be in the playoffs if they started today. The Browns are just one spot out of the final Wild Card berth. In fact, it’s a tight race with five teams tied for the last three spots. Each game down the stretch will be extra important for Cleveland. Expect them to bring their A-game on Sunday.
The Eagles are very familiar with Browns’ Head Coach Kevin Stefanski. He was the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings last year. For those of you who blocked it out of your memory, Stefanski’s squad dominated the Eagles in a 38-20 win in 2019.
This year, he has the Browns team in a rhythm. They have their identity as a team which is something that Philly can’t say. Head Coach Doug Pederson does not have this group together at the moment. However, the Eagles always seem to win when it seems the most unlikely. A lot would have to go their way in Week 11 but let’s dive into how it can happen.
