The Philadelphia Eagles saved their season momentarily last week with a big road win against the NFC East-leading New York Giants. This week, the Eagles will have to do even better when the New England Patriots come into town.
The Patriots come in at 7-3 with the second-ranked passing offense in the league, averaging over 315 yards in the air per game. The Eagles will have to cool the red-hot Patriots in order to continue to save their season.
With the Dallas Cowboys escaping the Miami Dolphins on Thanksgiving, an Eagles loss would put them three games back with five games left. A win would keep the Eagles in the NFC East race, with their next two games coming against very beatable opponents, the Seattle Seahawks and the Miami Dolphins.
A Sunday afternoon upset of the Patriots won't come easy, but not much has this season for the Eagles.
