Following seven wins in their first eight games, the Eagles enter the toughest stretch of their regular-season.

They're off to a commanding 7-1 start. They own the top spot in the NFC East, the National Football Conference as a whole, and the entire NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles have been soaring through the first half of the 2023 season. The questions now are about whether that will continue.

Philly's next six matchups on their schedule will serve as a true litmus test for their mettle. There are two clashes versus their arch-nemesis, the Dallas Cowboys. Several other formidable opponents loom on the horizon.

The question arises: Can the Eagles handle the heat, or will they have to step out of the kitchen? As you might imagine, we're here to make a few guesses.

Perhaps you have heard. On November 5th, at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles host their fiercest rival, the 5-2 Dallas Cowboys.

Quarterback Dak Prescott, in a press conference that followed the Cowboys' dominant 43-20 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, claimed, "If you see me in a fight with a bear, pour honey on me so you can poke it."

Be that as it may, we're calling for an Eagles victory in this one. They emerge victorious following an intense matchup.
