The Philadelphia Eagles schedule gets easier as the 2021 season continues

A lot of doubt has been placed on this team, and at times, it is warranted. However, as the Eagles’ season continues, their strength of schedule gets significantly more manageable. Their remaining games are all winnable. Take a look at who they play coming down the stretch.

In Week 7, they face the Las Vegas Raiders, who have many issues, including no longer having a head coach. In Week 8, they are facing the 0-6 Detriot Lions squad, and they’re an absolute mess.

You can make the argument that aside from the Eagles game versus the Los Angeles Chargers and their home date versus the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles should be favored in many of their remaining matchups.

This team can catch fire down the stretch and close the gap between them and their division rivals in Dallas. It wouldn’t be the first time that this happened either. As the saying goes, “the night is the darkest before dawn”. Yep, it’s pretty doggone dark, but the dawn truly is coming for this team.

Hopefully, after this mini bye-week, the Birds can sort a lot of things out and get back on track. This team does have talent on both sides of the ball that can make big plays happen, but this coaching staff needs to put them on the correct path to success.
