The Philadelphia Eagles were on their bye week in Week 7 and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
The Eagles are currently on a two-game losing streak after starting out 3-1 and now have to prepare for a tough matchup at home against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Giants have a game lead of 1.5 in the NFC East. The Eagles have a lot to work on if they plan on catching the Giants. If the Eagles continue playing the way they are, they won’t make it to the playoffs and the Andy Reid era in Philly will be over.
In order for the Eagles to presumably save Reid’s job, the offense and defense must come out of their bye week more explosive than ever, and that starts with handing the Falcons their first loss.
