This weekend the Eagles go into Dallas with first place in the NFC East up for grabs. Before the teams take the field, our writers need to make their bold predictions for the game known. Here's a recap of previous bold predictions from each week and the winning predictor from our writers:
Week 1: Mike W.
Week 2: Michael V. (partial credit)
Week 3: no correct predictions
Week 4: Andrew W. & Mike W. (both partial credit)
Week 5: Chalie (Dylan partial credit)
Week 6: Dylan (partial credit)
We'll see if anyone can have a fully correct prediction this weeks as the Eagles try to win their second divisional game of the year. Here's what our writers are boldly predicting for this weekend:
Michael V.: Miles Sanders has over 100 receiving yards and two TDs. Unfortunately this will lead the Eagles WR corps.
Andrew: Undrafted rookie T.J. Edwards is expected to have a bigger role now with Nigel bradham sidelined and Zach Brown on the streets. He'll have a breakout game in the primetime spotlight, racking up 15 tackles and one forced fumble.
Alexis: The Eagles offensive line makes up for the lack of production on the defensive line. Carson Wentz will throw for a long touchdown pass to Zach Ertz in the first quarter. Eagles take the win 32-24.
Chalie: Jordan Howard has a big game on the ground, rushing for 130 yards and two TDs.
Dylan: Eagles defense keeps Ezekiel Elliot under 75 rushing yards to keep the streak going of not allowing 100 rushing yards.
Travis: Dallas' interior defensive line is weak this year, so I expect the Philly running backs to combine for at 175 yards and two TDs.
Ryan: Eagles corners struggle, but Dak cant hack it and the Eagles come away with the win.
Mike W: Carson Wentz ends up with 350 passing yards, two TDs and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside ends up with his first TD grab.
