The Philadelphia Eagles look like they have gotten their groove back as they have rattled off impressive back-to-back wins over the Packers and Jets. Kirk Cousins had a big game against the New York Giants, but the Eagles defense is a whole new breed as they will look to put pressure on the offense with Graham and Cox. The Eagles are banged up on the offensive side of the ball, but I believe Carson Wentz and company can do enough damage to escape with a road win. Final Score Prediction, Philadelphia Eagles win and cover ATS 27-24.
