Eagles fans rooting guide for Week 11 games

New, comments

Here are the teams you should be rooting for ... and against.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The eleventh Sunday of the 2019 NFL season is upon us. Here’s a Philadelphia Eagles focused rooting guide for all of the Week 11 games.

NFC PLAYOFF PICTURE

Here’s what the race for the playoffs currently looks like, via ESPN.

EAGLES GAME

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS at PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: A win over an 8-1 Pats team would reignite hope in Philly. Just win, Eagles.

NFC EAST

DALLAS COWBOYS at DETROIT LIONS: The Cowboys aren’t going to lose to Jeff Driskel but it would be pretty great for the Eagles if they somehow did. Root for the Lions.

NEW YORK JETS at WASHINGTON: Winning only serves to screw up Washington’s positioning in the 2020 NFL Draft. WASTEAM currently owns the No. 2 overall pick. Root against the Jets.

NEW YORK GIANTS: Bye week.

NFC GAMES

ATLANTA FALCONS at CAROLINA PANTHERS: The Panthers losing further damages their wild card chances. (The consolation to a Panthers win is that the 2020 sixth-round pick the Falcons owe to the Eagles will be higher.) Root for the Falcons.

DENVER BRONCOS at MINNESOTA VIKINGS: The Vikings are ahead of the Eagles for a wild card spot in the NFC playoff picture. Easy call to root for the AFC team. Root for the Broncos.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS at TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: The Saints are obviously a much bigger playoff threat than the Bucs. Root for the Buccaneers.

ARIZONA CARDINALS at SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: The 49ers are obviously a much bigger playoff threat than the Cards. Root for the Cardinals.

CHICAGO BEARS at LOS ANGELES RAMS: The Rams are a bigger threat for a wild card spot than the Bears, especially since Philly has a tie-breaker over Chicago. Root for da Bears.

WHAT’S LEFT

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS at INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: Take your pick of rooting for either Nick Foles or Frank Reich. Root for whatever makes you happiest because BGN readers deserve only the best in life.

BUFFALO BILLS at MIAMI DOLPHINS: Washington and the Giants are currently ahead of Miami in the draft order. It’d be nice to see the Dolphins move back ahead of them. Root for the Bills.

HOUSTON TEXANS at BALTIMORE RAVENS: Lamar Jackson versus Deshaun Watson should be a fun one. I’m partial to the Ravens and you should care about that for some reason. Root for the Ravens.

CINCINNATI BENGALS at OAKLAND RAIDERS: I’ve always had something of a soft spot for the Raiders, who I’ve viewed as the Eagles of the west. Also, need the Bengals to stay ahead of Washington in the draft order. Root for the Raiders.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS at LOS ANGELES CHARGERS: During my appearance on the 94WIP Morning Show last week, Angelo Cataldi got mad at me for telling Eagles fans they should be rooting for Andy Reid. I’m gonna have to anger him again by saying this same thing here. Sorry, Angelo. Root for the Chiefs.

BYE WEEK

Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans
