The Eagles are scheduled for a tough road game in Southern California this weekend. Their NFC East rivals have tough games ahead of them as well.

Following the Miami Dolphins' loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 4, the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers are the only undefeated teams entering the fifth week of the 2023 season. While Philly committed mistakes in each game, they have managed to play well enough to win. Can they keep up their winning streak this week on the road?

It will be challenging. They fly across the country to Tinseltown where the Los Angeles Rams await them. This one should draw a few eyes (and a few Birds fans to L.A.).

The Washington Commanders and New York Giants are both aiming to break losing streaks this weekend. It won't be easy. The Commanders have a short week of rest before playing on Thursday Night Football at home against the Chicago Bears. The Giants travel to Miami, who have one of the premier offenses in the NFL.

Who plays on Sunday Night Football? The San Francisco 49ers host the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas will be eager to earn a win against the franchise that eliminated them from the postseason the previous two years.

Here are a few predictions for each contest.
