For the Philadelphia Eagles, their march through the 2021-2022 NFL regular season rolls on. It’s truly a week-to-week league.

The irritation of seeing this team put up no fight versus the Las Vegas Raiders, after having ten weeks to prepare, has been replaced by a little better feeling, one that can only come from winning.

The players look like they aren’t dealing with as much stress. The coaches look like they’re relieved that they don’t have to answer questions that they weren’t going to be excited about being asked.

Sure, when it’s all said and done, Philadelphia beat the Detroit Lions, and depending on who you ask, that isn’t really a reason to stick your chest out. That isn’t Philly’s fault though. You play who’s in front of you, so the Birds should be proud of winning. Now, it’s time to move on to the next game.

Don’t let Week 8 fool you. Victories don’t come easy in the NFL, and a tough contest awaits the Birds in Week 9. The Los Angeles Chargers are the opponent. Let’s get into some particulars.

Eagles vs Chargers Prediction Week 9

Seeing as how the Chargers, at this particular juncture, are a better and more complete team than the Eagles are, it’s difficult to imagine realistic scenarios in which Philly comes out of this one with the win.

The Chargers are better coached. Justin Herbert has progressed past what Jalen Hurts has been able to do at this point of his career, but the line sounds about right.

This is a game that should wind up being within striking distance late, especially if the Eagles run the ball (the Chargers are among the league’s worst running defenses). Here’s a game that could come down to a field goal opportunity by Philadelphia late. Let’s just hope Jake Elliott isn’t lining up from that 40-to-49-yard range. Prediction: Eagles 26, Chargers 24
