The Eagles’ defense gets to feast on some mediocre quarterback talent for the next two weeks.

Overall and divisional record: 6-1, 1-1

After the Eagles’ bye in Week 7, they face the Pittsburgh Steelers, who will either have Mitch Trubisky or first-round rookie Kenny Pickett starting at quarterback. While we are unsure about which quarterback will make the start, the Birds’ defense will most likely be able to handle either of them.

Whether it’s Pickett’s rookie mistakes or Mitch Trubisky being, well, Mitch Trubsiky, there shouldn’t be anything to worry about regarding quarterback play.

The Steelers do have some talented players, however. Philadelphia will need to neutralize Najee Harris, T.J. Watt, and Cameron Heyward, but if they play up to their competition, they could win this game convincingly.

Nothing much to say here. The Houston Texans are a mess right now, and there is little reason to think the Eagles will fumble the bag on this one. Davis Mills looked serviceable last season, but the Texans did little to help him, and sophomore slumps are a thing for a reason.

The Texans truly aren’t anything special. We’ll see if Derek Stingley Jr. or John Metchie III break out, but the rest of their roster is in shambles. Things are looking up at the Birds as they rise to seven wins by defeating Jalen Hurts’ former favorite team.
