The last team the Eagles played the Chiefs, we all got our hearts broken. They took a lead into the locker room at halftime. Philly fans were on cloud 9 thinking a parade down Broad Street was in our near future. But it was not to be. The Chiefs roared back, and the Eagles’ defense failed to get a single stop in the second half. In the end, it was Patrick Mahomes, not Jalen Hurts, who was lifting up the Lombardi Trophy. But now we get a rematch tonight on Monday Night Football.
With both teams coming off of a bye week, they meet in Kansas City tonight for a game with huge implications in the standings. They each come in atop their respective conference but without a lot of wiggle room. The winner will likely come away being called the best team in the league, while the loser will suddenly be on their heels to protect the 1 seed.
The Eagles have a lot of tough games coming up. Bills, Niners, and Cowboys. They have a 2 game buffer in the division which gives them some wiggle room. But the Lions are right on their heels with just two losses, and have a very easy schedule the rest of the way.
They are thankfully getting some reinforcements. Both Bradley Roby and Cam Jurgens are back this week. Which should help with a couple of their issues. Mainly defense over the middle of the field, and the run game on offense. But even still, this is one of those games where everyone will have to be on their game to come away with a win. What matchups are the most important to watch though? Who needs to step up tonight the most for the Eagles to win?
