Football Outsiders is predicting 10.5 wins and a likely playoff appearance. I think that undersells us, as their work does not include 100% of Vick. If Vick continues what he's done through 4 full games, he'll end up as one of the top QBs in the league and will be in the conversation for MVP.
So, before the season started I predicted an 11-5 season. While it will be tough to go 6-2, I think it's doable, maybe even surpassable! Here's our remaining schedule (all rankings per DVOA)
Eagles #2 in the NFL in DVOA at 29.5%
At Wash #22 (-9.5%) - likely win
NY Giants #1 (30.9%) - probable win (home field advantage means we'll be a slight favorite)
At Chicago #26 (-19.6%) likely win
Houston #16 (1.4%) likely win
@Dallas #27 (23.4%) likely win
@NY Giants - probable loss
Minn #21 (-8.3%) likely win
Dallas - likely win
So, we'll likely to be favored in 7 of our remaining games. 12-4 isn't crazy, and 11-5 is a good bet. Other than the Giants, no team we face is better than mediocre. Any given Sunday and all that, but I think we've got a great shot at this.
