One very important reason to feel good about the Eagles this week

It’s science.

There’s every reason to not feel good about the Philadelphia Eagles right now.

And yet, the Eagles just made a decision that actually inspires some hope heading into Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.

For the first time since Week 17 last season, the Eagles are breaking out their white jersey top and midnight green pants uniform combination:

The Eagles are UNDEFEATED in their last three games wearing their green pants:

  • Week 15 of the 2017 season: Eagles beat New York Giants, 34 to 29
  • Week 15 of the 2019 season: Eagles beat Washington, 37 to 27
  • Week 17 of the 2019 season: Eagles beat New York Giants, 34 to 17

Further, they are 9-1 in their last 10 games when they haven’t worn their normal white pants.

Ergo, the Eagles can’t possibly lose to the Browns this weekend. And they’re scoring at least 34 points.

Boom. Season saved.
