Not-so-bold prediction: Jalen Hurts throws two TD passes OR he runs for a pair.

It's easy to be right when we play both sides of the fence, and that's exactly what we have done with this one.

Hopefully, the Eagles tailbacks have a few long-gainers in them and they can score that way because if the Birds are set up with first-and-goal opportunities at the goal line, we already know whose number is being called.

Yes friends... Until we see someone stop Philly's quarterback sneak, we don't see it happening. Then again, we can also see a scenario in which Jalen Hurts throws multiple scoring strikes in this one. The way we see it, QB1 is good for one or the other. Heck, me may be able to pull off both.

Another not-so-bold prediction: Jake Elliott doesn't miss a field goal or an extra point.

Saying that we expect Jake to have a perfect kicking game seems like cheating when you're mentioning one of the best in the business. The further the target the more accurate Elliott becomes.

With that being said, the above statement seems as distant from being a bold prediction as one can be

With his buddy Siposs gone and with the duty of building chemistry with a new holder, Braden Mann, there could be some issues. We believe Jake and Braden will be okay though. Plus, they have had some time to work together at practice.

These stories should keep you busy as well.
