The Eagles Go 11-5, Lose To The Cowboys, Still Win The Division

Let's just go through the schedule. 

Week 1 - at Washington Redskins (Sept. 13, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)

W

The Redskins have a scary d-line, but Haskins hasn't proven he can be actually good yet.

Week 2 - vs. Los Angeles Rams (Sept. 20, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)

W

The Rams offense has gotten a little more toothless over the last two years, plus it's the home opener. 

Week 3 - vs. Cincinnati Bengals (Sept. 27, 1:00 PM ET, CBS)

W

Will Joe Burrow be starting yet? Sunday at the Linc could be a nice "welcome to the league" moment.

Week 4 - at San Francisco 49ers (Oct. 4, 8:20 PM ET, NBC) Sunday Night Football

L

At San Fran? Prime time? New assistant Rich Scangarello uses a lot of Shanahan's offense, but this is an L.

Week 5 - at Pittsburgh Steelers (Oct. 11, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)

W

Sanders is from Pittsburgh, Hargrave is headed home. They should play this at Beaver Stadium.

Week 6 - vs. Baltimore Ravens (Oct. 18, 1:00 PM ET, CBS)

L

Jalen Hurts studies Lamar Jackson close up, then realizes they're actually nothing alike.

Week 7 - vs. New York Giants (Oct. 22, 8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFL Network/Amazon) Thursday Night Football

W

The Eagles always show out for Amazon. The giants and their new coaching staff aren't ready. 

Week 8 - vs. Dallas Cowboys (Nov. 1, 8:20 PM ET, NBC) Sunday Night Football

W

Early tone-setting game. Can we match up with their 3-headed receiving monster? At home, yes.

Week 9 - BYE

Perfect spot for a bye. 

Week 10 - at New York Giants (Nov. 15, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)

W

I would go to this game, but then I realized how awful it is to leave that stadium, even after an easy win.

Week 11 - at Cleveland Browns (Nov. 22, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)

W

Kevin Stefanski hosts the Eagles. The Browns rushing attack is gonna be scary, but the Birds need this one.

Week 12 - vs. Seattle Seahawks (Nov. 30, 8:15 PM ET, ESPN) Monday Night Football

W

The Seahawks have, frankly, dominated the Eagles, with two painful losses last year alone. That has to end.

Week 13 - at Green Bay Packers (Dec. 6, 4:25 PM ET, CBS)

L

The shoe is on the other foot, as Green Bay gets revenge for last year. The first of four afternoon games.

Week 14 - vs. New Orleans Saints (Dec. 13, 4:25 PM ET, FOX)

L

The meat of the hardest part of the schedule, the Saints seem to be loaded.

Week 15 - at Arizona Cardinals (Dec. 20, 4:05 PM ET, FOX)

W

This is a mega trap game. In Arizona, before the Cowboys? This could be a tough one. 

Week 16 - at Dallas Cowboys (Dec. 27, 4:25 PM ET, FOX)

L

Cowboys beat us at their place. Christmas is ruined. 

Week 17 - vs. Washington Redskins (Jan. 3, 1:00 PM ET, FOX)

W

Doesn't matter tho, Eagles win the division, but don't get the lone bye.
