The final four games will tell the Eagles’ tale for the 2022-2023 season.
It must suck to be a Chicago Bears fan. Though they entered the 2022 offseason void of a first-round draft choice, they somehow finagled their way into 11 total selections. They also had money to spend which many thought would allow them to be competitive in free agency.
They elected instead to blow up their roster. General manager Ryan Poles and head coach
Matt Eberflus have potential. They can figure this out, but it won’t be this season. Philly wins easily over a team that, by this point of the season, will have nothing to play for.
With Dak Prescott back in the lineup, the Eagles’ defense is challenged more than they were in Week 6. With Philadelphia no longer struggling from second-half offensive droughts (we hope), they’re up to the challenge of a Christmas Eve shootout.
The holidays are happy for Birds fans as Philly wins a close divisional war and wins the NFC East in Arlington at Jerry’s World.
We’ll be honest. We thought the New Orleans Saints would be better. We thought there was a chance that the Eagles would lose this game. We were wrong on both counts. Philly struggles with the Saints early, but they pull away late. Four Jake Elliott field goals save the day.
There’s no need for a flair for the dramatic. The Eagles drop this one but only because they have nothing to play for, and they’re resting their starters. The Giants, still in contention for a Wild Card spot, give this one everything that they have.
