So much for the hard part of the Eagles schedule. The Eagles have now played The Dolphins, Cowboys, and Chiefs, and beat all of them. Were some of those games closer than any Eagles fans are comfortable with? Sure. But wins are wins. And the Eagles have more wins than anybody. They are 9-1. And if they can win this weekend, they will have a 2-game lead over every other team in the NFL.
The gauntlet is not over quite yet though. They still have 4 more games vs tough teams coming up. Bills, Niners, Cowboys, and Seahawks. Starting with the Bills this Sunday. It should be said, the Bills are not exactly the great team everyone thought they would be. They come in 6-5 and are currently out of the playoffs. But they are still not a team to take lightly. They are 4th in point differential. And perhaps more importantly, they are desperate for a win to stay in the playoff win.
The Eagles go into the game as 3-point home favorites. And to this point in the season, they are 4-0 vs teams with winning records. They may not have looked perfect this year, but they always come out on top. And there is something to be said for pulling out wins. In fact, losing close games is part of the reason the Bills have 5 losses, with 3 of them coming in games where they blew leads late in the game.
So what do the Eagles need to do to pull out their 10th win? Which of their players do they need to step up? Thankfully, there are plenty of matchups the Eagles can exploit. And some of their key players could be in store for good games.
