It was a stress-free Sunday for the Eagles and their fans in Week 3 with Philadelphia not playing the Dallas Cowboys until Monday night. The Birds witnessed a number of favorable outcomes.

An overview:

So, the Eagles benefited from 1) two of their NFC East rivals losing and 2) draft pick positioning improvement. Not bad.

Of course, this Sunday satisfaction will be short-lived if the Eagles don’t manage to beat the Cowboys in prime-time. The pressure is on.
