After four straight losses Philadelphia Eagles tickets looked like they had lost their luster. The Eagles were in shambles, the so called “Dream Team” assaulted on all sides by the media, those famous Eagles fans, and the talking heads of television. But what we didn’t hear was a whole lot of dissension from within. And the last fact has sparked some hope among Philadelphia Eagles fans, fickle as they may be.
The Eagles have now won two straight, a win over the Washington Redskins and a very convincing win over the Dallas Cowboys. Of course that still leaves them two games behind the New York Giants at 5-2 but the light at the end of the tunnel lies in the schedule over the next few weeks. While the Giants are 5-2, they haven’t been a very convincing 5-2. New York is also faced with the New England Patriots and the resurgent San Francisco 49ers in their next pair of games, while the Eagles have the Chicago Bears and the Arizona Cardinals.
What it all boils down to is that the Philadelphia Eagles will have a chance at going into New York on Nov. 20th and playing for the lead in the NFC East. Or at least getting within striking distance. They aren’t out of this thing yet by any means, especially if they can keep up the level of played they showed Sunday night.
