The Philadelphia Eagles get Winston and Wilson after Week 10.

Jameis Winston, Round 1 / Pick 1 in 2015 (Week 11): For the first time in 16 seasons, the New Orleans Saints will do battle without Drew Brees leading them. Jameis Winston should be able to beat out Taysom Hill, and that alone makes this Saints team interesting.

Zach Wilson, Round 1 / Pick 2 in 2021 (Week 13): The Jets are expecting a lot from Zach Wilson. That’s why they traded Sam Darnold away, but despite all of that, this is a game the Eagles should actually be favored in.

Here are a few other things to think about if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Keep in mind the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles also draw Justin Herbert by way of their Week 9 tilt with the Los Angeles Chargers. He was the sixth-overall selection in 2020 and the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year.

As you know, they’ll also see Daniel Jones twice (Week 6 and Week 12) by virtue of their annual two-game tilt versus the New York Giants. The Birds split their series with their rivals from The Big Apple in 2020 with both teams winning at home.

If they can get back to their winning ways versus Big Blue, it could go a long way in helping Philly winning the NFC East, a feat that may not be as difficult as some people believe it to be. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
