Several Philadelphia Eagles are seeing their stock rise ahead of Week 9’s game.

We get it already! You don’t have to say anything. The Philadelphia Eagles‘ Week 8 dismantling of the Detroit Lions is probably never going to fall under the category of one of the great wins in franchise history. This one feels more like 2019’s win over the New York Jets.

The Eagles trounced New York in that one by a 31-6 margin, and by the time that one was over, much of the narrative surrounding the game was how no one should put a lot of stock in the win because the opponent was so bad. Does that sound familiar?

Regardless of what your opinion is on that, there are some positives to build on. Detroit is an NFL team, and no wins in this league come easy. Ask the Baltimore Ravens or the Los Angeles Rams how they feel about the lowly Lions.

Still, as you’ve heard hundreds of times before, teams can never get too high after a win or too low following a loss in this league. Philly’s next opponent, the Los Angeles Chargers, will test their mettle. The Birds have some guys they can depend on though, especially after a few of their guys that have seen their stock rise over the past week.

Here are five Eagles who are trending up ahead of yet another must-win game in Week 9.
