1. The Eagles are just too damn good
Lastly, is anyone going to be able to stop the Eagles? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were hoping to get the job done on Monday Night Football, but the Eagles barely broke a sweat in taking them down 25-11. Jalen Hurts admitted he was dealing with flu-like symptoms for this one, but you would have never known. He finished with 305 total yards and two touchdowns - but with two INTs.
Despite the turnovers, Hurts looked great and the same can be said for D'Andre Swift. Yet another brilliant acquisition by Howie Roseman, Swift had his second straight monster game - he rushed for 130 yards on 16 carries, good enough for 8.1 yards per carry. Goodness. As for the Philly defense, they made life difficult for Baker Mayfield all night. Mayfield threw for only 146 yards.
Through the first three games of the year, Philly is a perfect 3-0. Their schedule is looking pretty relaxing too, as they'll take on the Commanders, Rams and Jets over the next three contests. Then on Oct. 22, Philly will face Miami in what could end up being a preview of the Super Bowl. Get your popcorn ready for that one.
