As expected, the Eagles are once again underdogs in Week 7.

Alrighty, Philly fans, after a bit of break, the Philadelphia Eagles, once again, are hitting the road to visit the City of Sin and their hometown Las Vegas Raiders. This will be the 14th meeting between these two franchises, with the Birds holding the series lead by one game.

A lot of controversies have surrounded these two teams as of late. Jon Gruden was forced to resign in shame, and the Eagles’ season-long offensive implosion has set this up to be an exciting matchup.

The Birds are the underdogs in this matchup, but the Raiders, despite a fast start and a win in Week 6, have recently come back down to earth over the past few weeks.

This is, once again, a winnable matchup for the Iggles, but it will take more than luck to beat Las Vegas at home. Philly has had its share of ups and downs this season, and it is time for them to put their foot in the dirt and make a stand.

Simply put, they cannot have a repeat offensive performance of what’s been witnessed over the past few games.

Their schedule gets easier down the stretch, beginning with Week 7’s matchup versus a decently built team. Are you excited yet? If so, let’s get into three reasonable expectations for a very winnable game in Week 7.
