Philadelphia Eagles win this one by a two-touchdown margin

Bad teams, starters sitting on the sideline, and desperate efforts to make the roster by some guys on roster bubbles lead us to believe that several things are possible. Mistakes will be made. Big plays will come from both rosters, but in the end, Philly should triumph. They’re clearly the better team.

That isn’t saying much. Both teams are terrible, but you’ve looked at the rosters and have used the eyeball test. The Eagles are better than the Jets, right?

Talking about points seems like an exercise in futility however. The Birds have been shut out during the last six quarters of in-game action.

For months, we’ve been preached to by Nick Sirianni about competition. The Philadelphia Eagles apparently compete at practice. Coach declares a winner between the offense and defense from what we understand. They apparently play Rock Paper Scissors in the hallway and find ways to compete in the lunchroom. They just, for whatever reason have decided that they won’t compete in preseason games.

Trending. 4 Jets to watch during final preseason game. light

That isn’t going to fly in Philadelphia. It’s one thing to be vanilla and refuse to tip your hand in training camp, but what we’ve seen from this team from the second half versus Pittsburgh on is inexcusable.

Again, you won’t have to worry about that in this one. Guys will go all out. Points will be scored. Look for one or two field goals and touchdown drives by both Joe Flacco and Nick Mullens. Philly will win by two touchdowns.
