The eighth Sunday of the 2022 NFL regular season is here! It’s time to run through a Philadelphia Eagles-focused rooting guide for all of the Week 8 games.
2023 NFL DRAFT ORDER
PITTSBURGH STEELERS at PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: The Eagles will advance to 7-0 with a win. Go Birds.
CHICAGO BEARS at DALLAS COWBOYS: The Bears winning is good when it comes to 1) giving the Eagles more margin for error at the top of the NFC East and 2) increasing the chances that the Bears do not select ahead of the Saints pick owed to the Eagles. Also would just be embarrassing if the Cowboys lost to Justin Fields. Root for da Bears.
WASHINGTON COMMANDERS at INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: The Eagles don’t want to see the Commanders gain any kind of momentum ahead of their Week 10 Monday Night Football matchup against Washington. Root for the Colts.
NFC PLAYOFF PICTURE
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS at LOS ANGELES RAMS: The Rams have the better record but various metrics indicate the 49ers are the better team. Better to see the bigger threat lose in this spot. Root for the Rams.
DRAFT PICK WATCH
LAS VEGAS RAIDERS at NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: Important game when it comes to the Eagles’ hopes of getting a very good pick from the Saints. The Eagles will be rooting for a Raiders win to help keep New Orleans away from the NFC South crown and closer to No. 1 overall. Root for the Raiders.
DENVER BRONCOS at JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS: The Broncos might be the bigger threat to pick higher than Saints’ pick owed to the Eagles. They’ve never really looked inspiring at any point whereas the Jags have at least had some moments. Sorry, Dougie P. Root for the Broncos.
CAROLINA PANTHERS at ATLANTA FALCONS: The Panthers are currently picking directly ahead of the Saints pick owed to the Eagles. In order for New Orleans to move up, you can root for Carolina to win. Root for the Panthers.
