This weekend the Eagles start a grueling three game road trip with a stop in Minnesota as they will face the Vikings. 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)
We'll see if anyone can have a fully correct prediction this weeks as the Eagles try to win their third consecutive game. Here's what our writers are boldly predicting for this weekend:
Michael V.: Fletcher Cox comes up with a strip sack in Vikings territory that the Eagles convert for a touchdown. This play may ultimately be the difference in this one as I expect it to be close. Go Birds.
Andrew: Carson Wentz will have some of his closest family and friends in attendance for this game up in Minnesota. Wentz will show what he can do not only with his arm, but also with his leg. He'll end up with two rushing touchdowns and give both balls to his family members in the stands.
Alexis: With both teams entering the game with the same record, I predict a close game that’s worth the watch this Sunday. The Eagles will start with a touchdown off the bat and keep that aggression throughout the whole game. Eagles win 24-20.
Chalie: Eagles defense steps up for the second game in a row with multiple turnovers and score at least one defensive TD.
Dylan: The Eagles will hold Dalvin cook under 75 yards on the ground to keep the streak of forcing running backs under 100-yards going. Fletcher Cox will also get his first sack of the season.
Travis: The Vikings go as far as Kirk Cousins goes -- not far. That being said, I think Kirk will throw three INTs, one of which goes to Nate Gerry. Eagles win 29-20.
