The Eagles tackle two of the AFC's toughest teams on opposite sides of the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Eagles don't play on Thanksgiving every season like their division rivals from Dallas. They do, however, this time around, face huge tests before and after the holiday thanks to games versus the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills.

2. Week 11: Kansas City Chiefs (Win)

This game carries a personal edge, as the Eagles' heartbreaking 38-35 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII hurts almost as badly now as it did in February.

The wounds from that night still run deep, and this rematch is an opportunity to regain some lost pride. The Birds' defense cannot, under any circumstances, allow Patrick Mahomes to exploit their defense once again.

This game won't be a walk in the park. It is, however, a game that we expect the Eagles will dig deep in and find a way to secure a win.

3. Week 12: Buffalo Bills (Win)

This matchup will be a clash of offensive titans, with Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs of the Buffalo Bills doing all that they can to create some fireworks. Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown will do the same for the Eagles.

This contest will be nothing short of electric. Both teams possess significant firepower and passionate fan bases.

However, despite the competitive nature of this one, the Eagles have the upper hand. Hopefully, Josh Allen's inconsistency will work in Philly's favor, and if the Birds can maintain their offensive and defensive prowess, a victory seems to be extremely likely.
