Im still wondering why so many people thought the eagles were superbowl bound after they beat Pittsburgh. They still had no faced a good team on the road so I could not understand the excitement because they beat the steelers

and that is going to be a problem when philly and the cowboys meet. the cowboys have two solid running backs, and a QB that can take off and run as well, and combine that with a good passing attack, and phillys defense is going to be in trouble.

however rivalry games are always tough to pick, as i an see philly winning in a close game.

That was a huge win though. Completely dominated the Steelers. At that point I was very impressed with the Eagles defense and thought that with Schwartz, maybe they were on to something special. I think the Eagles will battle with the Giants for third place in the division.

Well, to the 'skins credit, they have been making defensive adjustments to both scheme and personnel, and we saw the benefits of it on Sunday. That is not to say they have corrected the problem with their run defense, but my hope is that they have tightened up enough to force the passing game to beat them. Honestly, I think the key was to get to Carson Wentz early and often, and Ryan Kerrigan and company did just that. It definitely rattled the rookie, and in turn, kind of created a domino effect across the board.

Very true! It doesn't matter when it comes to inner division games. Records and how well teams have played other teams outside the division and conference are pretty much thrown out the window. These teams see each other twice every season, so they know each other pretty well.

exactly right. and in the case of the NFC east all four teams are equal rivals, on the order of say the steelers and raiders. and while dallas might pound philly in two weeks, you can bet that philly will be ready for the boys near the end of the season, and the second game wont be any where near easy. however, i think philly is going to be looking past the vikings squarely at the dallas game to see if the can knock dallas off their high horse. it will definitely be an interesting game.

I HOPE that they don't look past a 5-0 team that has their former quarterback.
I HOPE that they stop making so many penalties.
I WISH that their receivers would consistently catch the balls that are thrown to them.

Exactly, teams look past bad teams like Cleveland not a team who is undefeated

i agree most of the time, but in this case, its possible that the eagles might just look past the vikings ahead to the cowboys. if the eagles lose to the vikings, it does hurt, but if they can turn around and beat the cowboys, it keeps them within one game of the cowboys in the division. on the other hand, if the eagles beat the vikings, and lose to the cowboys, they fall two games back in the division.

it depends on which they think more important, the overall race, or the division race. remember, you can lose every other game, outside the division, but if you win the division you still go to the playoffs.
