After 4 games in just 17 days, the Eagles can exhale

Rest up Asante... and sorry for riding you earlier this season for your tackling.

The brutal part of the Eagles' schedule is over.  In just a 17-day span from November 15 to tonight, the Eagles played 4 games.  In today's NFL, that's not easy. They came away with 3 wins during that stretch:

Day Date Opponent Score
0 15-Nov Redskins W 59-28
6 21-Nov Giants W 27-17
13 28-Nov Bears L 26-31
17 2-Dec Texans W 34-24

The Eagles' remaining opponents have a collective record of 17-27 (.386), and they'll have 9 days of preparation before they face the Cowboys in Dallas next Sunday.  Obviously, every extra day you have to get ready for the great Jon Kitna is crucial.  The Eagles' remaining schedule:

Date Opponent
12-Dec At Dallas
19-Dec At Giants
26-Dec Vikings
2-Jan Cowboys

The defense was terrible tonight against the Texans, and I want to be careful not to make excuses for that side of the ball.  With that said, hopefully some of what we saw tonight and in Chicago was a result of fatigue during a grueling stretch, and not just a unit that's... I hate to say... soft?

Whatever the case, a win is a win, and Eagles fans now get to enjoy a stress-free weekend of football, hoping for some of the Eagles' NFC threats to slip up.
