Week 1: no one
Week 2: Andrew W.
Week 3: no one

We'll see if anyone can have a fully correct prediction this week as the Eagles try to get their fourth win of the season and somehow stay alive in the NFC East. Here's what our writers are boldly predicting for this weekend:
Andrew W: Since Darius Slay will likely be covering Davante Adams the entire game, it's likely he'll be targeted 10+ times. He'll be able to get his first interception as an Eagle on an off throw from Aaron Rodgers. On the offensive side of the ball, the Eagles need to find out what they have in Jalen Reagor. He'll have 10+ total touches (catches/designed runs), resulting in his first 100-yard performance of his career.
Caitlin: Doug finally remembers how to run the ball and we rush for two touchdowns. Ertz makes his presence known with a touchdown in his return. the Eagles defense sacks Rodgers twice, but ultimately fall to the Packers 27-24.
Trevor: Bringing Jordan Howard back reminds Doug Pederson that there is a run game. Eagles rush for over 100 yards combined, but it’s not enough, 27-22 Packers.
Paul: I see Carson Wentz throwing for 150 yards, one interception, one rushing touchdown and a touchdown thrown to the returning Zach Ertz. Green Bay wins this one though, 30-14.
Andrew Palagruto: Even with Jordan Howard back, Miles Sanders will finish this game with 10+ carries, 100+ all-purpose yards, and a touchdown.
