The Eagles continue to build steam as they travel to Washington.

Beating up on a former quarterback twice a year isn’t an opportunity that teams or their fanbases get often, so after the news broke that Carson Wentz was headed to the nation’s capital, Eagles fans were ecstatic.
Smashing their former ‘drama queen’ quarterback twice a year will prove to be a dream for Eagles fans. Judging by the year he had with the Indianapolis Colts a year ago, Wentz hasn’t moved past the struggles he saw as Philly’s signal-caller before his departure.
While divisional games are always tough for the Birds, their new-look defense and improved offense will lead them to a victory against their former signal-caller. The acquisition of James Bradberry along with their other free agent signings raise the level of play all game long.

Wait? What? Are we saying the Eagles will boast an undefeated record after four games? Who’s to say, right? We can say this though. It’s definitely possible.
Doug Pederson returns to Philly in Week 4, but this time, he’ll be donning teal and gold instead of midnight green. The Jacksonville Jaguars are shaping up to have a half-decent team this year, but they’ll provide minimal resistance to the more talented team in this one.
While the Jags are trending upwards, the Birds are too. Philly just has better players, especially in key positions. They cruise to an easy win in this one.
