The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 NFL schedule continues on Sunday afternoon as the team is scheduled to play the New York Jets in Week 3. It's a battle between a winless team (the 0-2 Eagles) and an undefeated team (the 2-0 Jets). Which side will continue their streak?
For the Eagles, this is a must-win game. Many said the same thing about the Eagles' Week 2 game ... which Philadelphia lost. The truth is that the Eagles looked awful last week against the Dallas Cowboys. Their offense could barely muster a first down. While offensive line issues were largely to blame, the truth is the entire offense struggled. Now it's up to Philadelphia to somehow get back on track against a tough New York defense. The Jets have forced 10 turnovers through the first two games and have only allowed a total of 17 points.
The Jets' offense doesn't look nearly as challenging, but the Eagles' defense will be without several key players on Sunday. Inside linebackers Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks have both been ruled out, as has starting defensive end Cedric Thornton.
The Eagles will really need to step up and overcome the odds in order to save their season.
