The Philadelphia Eagles might be the worst 2-1 team in the NFL based solely on popular opinion. They started out OK with two one-point wins over the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns, but they followed that up in Week 3 with a stinker in the desert. The Arizona Cardinals thumped the Eagles for four quarters, 27-6. That is the main reason why Eagles fans are worried that this team is reverting back to their early 2011 ways.

The NFL is always dominated by teams riding on momentum. This is a “what have you done for me lately” type of sports league. You don’t learn the most about teams after a win; you learn the most after a loss. How do you attack a team and where is a team weakest at?
