The tenth Sunday of the 2019 NFL season is upon us. Here’s aPhiladelphia Eaglesfocused rooting guide for all of the Week 10 games. No Eagles game today, obviously, since the Birds are on their bye.
NEW YORK GIANTS at NEW YORK JETS:The 2-7Giantsaren’t sniffing the playoffs. Wins only serve to ruin their positioning in the 2020NFL Draft. Then again, it would be nice to seeSam Darnoldshred the team that passed up on him to take a running back at No. 2 overall last year. Consider that angle a consolation prize to a Giants loss.Root against theJets.
MINNESOTA VIKINGS at DALLAS COWBOYS:A Dallas loss would have theCowboysand Eagles both at 5-4 with seven games left to play. It’s really hard to count onKirk Cousins coming up in a big spot but it’d sure be nice if he could help the Eagles here.Root for theVikings
ARIZONA CARDINALS at TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS:The 3-5-1 Cards are closer to making an unlikely playoff run than the 2-6 Bucs are.Root for theBuccaneers.
ATLANTA FALCONS at NEW ORLEANS SAINTS:The Eagles know that the Superdome is one of the toughest places to play. They won’t want to see theSaintsget a top two seed. The consolation to a likely Saints win here is that the 2020 sixth-round pick theFalconsowe to the Eagles projects to be a high one.Root for the Falcons.
LOS ANGELES RAMS at PITTSBURGH STEELERS:Easy call to root for the AFC team over the NFC team potentially standing in the way of an Eagles wild card berth.Root for theSteelers.
CAROLINA PANTHERS at GREEN BAY PACKERS:Ideally thePackerswill collapse andAaron Rodgerswill miss the playoffs entirely . Can’t really count on that, though, so if the assumption is that Green Bay is making the postseason anyway, might as well root for the Packers to get a top two seed if it means the Saints won’t be getting one. APanthersloss also aids the Eagles’ chances of landing a wild card spot.Root for the Packers.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS at SAN FRANCISCO 49 ERS:A49 erswin is a preventative measure when it comes to the Saints getting a top two seed. ASeahawksloss also hurts Seattle’s wild card chances and potentially allows the Eagles to catch up in that regard.Root for the 49 ers.
BUFFALO BILLS at CLEVELAND BROWNS:The Eagles’ strength of victory tie-breaker only stands to gain from aBillswin.Root for the Bills.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS at TENNESSEE TITANS:Here’s to rooting on Andy Reid.Root for theChiefs.
