Eagles rooting guide for Week 10 games

Sunday afternoon reference material.

NFL: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The tenth Sunday of the 2020 NFL regular season is here and that means it’s time to run through a Philadelphia Eagles-focused rooting guide for all of the Week 10 games.

NFC EAST GAMES

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES at NEW YORK GIANTS: With a win, the Eagles will reach 4-4-1 and drop the Giants to 2-8. With a loss, the Eagles drop to 3-5-1 and keep the Giants in the running for the division title at 3-7. Important game for the Birds to win. Root for the Eagles, obv.

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM at DETROIT LIONS: The Football Team can stay alive in the division by beating the Lions to advance to 3-7. Harder for them to make a run if they drop to 2-8. Root for the Lions.

DALLAS COWBOYS: They’re on their bye.

NFC PLAYOFF PICTURE CONSIDERATIONS

The Eagles have a 0.1% chance of winning a wild card spot, according to Football Outsiders. So, instead of focusing on that, we’ll be looking at getting the Eagles the most favorable matchup as their No. 5 seed opponent assuming Philly wins the NFC East.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS at CAROLINA PANTHERS: If the season ended today, the Eagles would host the Bucs in the wild card round. More preferable to see a team like Chicago get that spot instead. Root for the Panthers.

BUFFALO BILLS at ARIZONA CARDINALS: The Cardinals losing gives Chicago a chance to pass Arizona in the NFC playoff picture. Root for the Bills.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS at LOS ANGELES RAMS: The Rams losing gives Chicago a chance to pass LA in the NFC playoff picture. Root for the Seahawks.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS at CHICAGO BEARS: The Bears are the preferred opponent for the Eagles in the first round. The Birds need Nick Foles to take down Kirk Cousins and company. Root for the Bears.

DRAFT POSITIONING

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS at GREEN BAY PACKERS: The Jags are currently second in the 2021 NFL Draft order. Need them to stay ahead of Dallas, NYG, and Washington. Root for the Packers.

HOUSTON TEXANS at CLEVELAND BROWNS: The Texans won’t be drafting a quarterback high but they could potentially trade their high pick to a team that wants one. Preferable to see Houston picking ahead of the three NFC East teams. Root for the Browns.

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS at MIAMI DOLPHINS: The Bolts won’t be drafting a quarterback high but they could potentially trade their high pick to a team that wants one. Preferable to see LA picking ahead of the three NFC East teams. Root for the Dolphins.

DENVER BRONCOS at LAS VEGAS RAIDERS: The Broncos are in position to take a quarterback high in the draft. Need them to stack more losses. Root for the Raiders.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS at NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: With four wins already, the 49ers might not be able to get ahead of the bad NFC East teams in the draft order. But they might be interested in trading up for a quarterback with Jimmy Garoppolo not looking like the long-term answer. Better for the 49ers to be within range of moving up. Root for the Saints.

CINCINNATI BENGALS at PITTSBURGH STEELERS: The Bengals won’t be drafting a quarterback high but they could potentially trade their high pick to a team that wants one. Preferable to see Cincy picking ahead of the three NFC East teams. Root for the Steelers.
