Miles Sanders dominates against a bad run defense. Philly’s defensive line finally comes alive against a Bengals blocking unit that’s allowed a lot of pressure. Carson Wentz and the team as a whole progresses to the mean after looking awful through two games.
But that’s the thing. To pick the Eagles to win means to ignore how atrocious they’ve been thus far. I gave the Birds the benefit of the doubt last week and they burned me so I’m not about to do it again. They don’t deserve that. The onus is on them to prove they’re not one of the very worst teams in the NFL.
My prediction for this game is a tie because it’d be the least satisfying and most confusing result. A win keeps the Eagles’ hopes alive. A loss confirms this team needs a wake-up call. A tie does ... what, exactly?
Score prediction: 17 to 17, tie game.
Bold prediction: Deontay Burnett leads all Eagles players in receiving yards.
