It’s hard to believe that if the Eagles beat the dreaded Cowboys this Sunday at the Linc, they will finish 2017 with a 7-9 record — the same as last season!
Three straight wins put the Eagles ahead of the game, but not enough to overcome a middling roster that lacks playmakers on both sides of the ball.
And while losing nine of 11 games is grim business, the Eagles can still match last season’s win total with a promising rookie passer at the helm in Carson Wentz.
Plus, as we saw on Thursday against the Giants, the team is still playing hard for first-year coach Doug Pederson — a very good sign.
