If the Eagles are to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy, their stars will need to come up big.

Great teams aren’t always at their best, but they normally play their best football when it’s needed. We trust our guys to get the job done by way of total-team efforts and great individual performances. Surprise showings by role players never hurt either.

James Bradberry and Darius Slay both grab an interception at some point during this run.

If we’re being honest, there were moments during games down the stretch where it appeared that Darius Slay and James Bradberry could have used a day off. That’s expected when your best players are also some of your oldest, but after a much-needed bye week, we expect these guys to return to form. They’re Pro Bowlers (Slay) and All-Pros (Bradberry for a reason.

If everything goes according to plan, the Birds will play three more games. Slay and Bradberry will both pick a pass off at some point during the stretch.

Jalen Hurts won’t throw an interception.

Jalen Hurts has always been careful with the football. He knows that every mistake is magnified in big games. We expect him to make even better decisions in the playoffs.

We can’t promise that Philly won’t put the ball on the turf by way of a fumble. We’ve seen more of those this year than we would like, but we’re certain that QB1 won’t be reckless with the pigskin when he airs it out.
