Sunday’s forecast: Ryan and Jack predict the outcome of the Eagles vs. Saints game
18 November 2018 Eagles News
It’s do or die, put up or shut up. The Eagles are in a must win game against the New Orleans Saints today. The Saints are sitting comfortably in the NFC and the Eagles, well, they have no room for complacency. Today’s game will go a long way in determining the rest of the Eagles season.
Are the underdog masks out?
The Eagles come into this game sitting 4-5 and with no identity. But, today’s the day that identity comes back. With their backs against the wall, the Eagles show up in New Orleans and behind quarterback Carson Wentz they’ll take it to the Saints’ 31st ranked passing defense. They aren’t a good defensive team what so ever and the Eagles are going to take it to them. Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz are going to have big days. Defensively, the same could be said about the Eagles, but getting back Sidney Jones will go a long way today. The Eagles will do just enough to slow down the Saints and win. Under this new mentality, the Eagles will come home to Philadelphia with a win.
Score: Eagles 31 – Saints 28

The Eagles are in desperate need of a win. They know that. Sidney Jones IV and Lane Johnson are returning, and every player is playing for the season. Doug knows this. Every creative play will be used. It’s do or die, and the Eagles will come through.
