The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 NFL schedule continues on Sunday as the team is set to play the Buffalo Bills in a Week 14 game. The Eagles are 5-7 after shocking everyone and beating the New England Patriots in Foxborough. Philadelphia is now tied for first place in the NFC East and actually favored by some to win the division. Can the Birds build off their big win as they kick off the first game of a three game home-stand?
It certainly won't be easy. At 6-6, Rex Ryan's Bills are still fighting to stay alive in the AFC playoff picture. Former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is undoubtedly eager to have a big day against the team that traded him earlier this offseason. Philadelphia's defense will be tested by a Buffalo offense that also features dangerous players such as Sammy Watkins and Tyrod Taylor. The Bills' defense isn't as intimidating as some might think; they only rank No. 26 overall by Football Outsiders. The struggling Eagles offense might be able to have some success in this game. The Birds need Sam Bradford to continue trending in the right direction. Can you believe I made it through this whole mini-preview without mentioning DeMarco Murray? Oh, crap.
