Week 4 in the NFL is underway. The only thing keeping those annoying 1972 Miami Dolphins from popping the cork on another bottle of champagne to celebrate their status as the only perfect team in pro football’s history is the 3-0 Philadelphia Eagles.

Philly’s next game stacks them against a scrappy Jacksonville Jaguars squad. This will be a tough test, but most believe the Birds’ winning ways will continue.

Now, let’s address one thing before we say anything else. Though they’re sometimes reduced to Fantasy points and Madden ratings, the men that play this great game are real people. Fingers are crossed for a speedy recovery by Tua Tagovailoa, but the Miami Dolphins must forge ahead. However, the next time we see them, there will be a blemish on the record. Let’s hope the Birds won’t meet a similar fate in their Sunday afternoon battle.

With each passing week, we’ve seen some aspect of Jalen Hurts‘ game evolve. In Week 3, he relied less on his ability to scramble, posting season lows in carries (nine) and rushing yards gained from scrimmage.

What does Week 4 have in store? We won’t have to wait long to find out. In the meantime, here are a few predictions.
