We'll see if anyone can have a fully correct prediction this week as the Eagles try to get their second-straight win and their fifth overall win of the season. Here's what our writers are boldly predicting for this weekend:
Andrew W: Jim Schwartz makes the necessary adjustments to the defense to prevent DeAndre Hopkins from getting 60+ yards, and they'll also keep Hopkins out of the endzone. Zach Ertz will make his presence felt with 7+ catches for 70+ yards.
Trevor: With Slay out and nobody to “contain” DeAndre Hopkins, Kyler Murray and the Cardinals will have a field day. The Eagles will give up 300+ yards through the air. Miles Sanders will score two touchdowns, but the Eagles lose, 38-15.
Paul: Eagles will carry their momentum from their win last week into this game. Hurts will run for 150 yards, throw a touchdown to Dallas Goedert, and Miles Sanders will have another explosive game with 150 yards and two touchdowns. Final score: Eagles 24 - Cardinals 14.
Andrew Palagruto: Jalen Hurts will have three total touchdowns, two through the air and one on the ground as well as 250+ passing yards and 50+ rushing yards.
Caitlin: Eagles defense forces the Cardinals to throw the ball. Hurts rushes for 50+ yards and tosses for 200+. Miles Sanders will also score a touchdown. Eagles win 21-17.
