The Philadelphia Eagles represent the duality of football. One week they’re rolling, building a winning streak over the Broncos and the Saints — the latter on the legs of Jalen Hurts’ three touchdown runs — the next they’re losing to the Giants 13-7 in a game that was not a defensive struggle, but more aptly, a struggle. Hurts was 14 of 31 for just 129 yards and three interceptions, while the Giants held on and put the Eagles at 5-7, three games out of the NFC East in the loss column.
For the Jets, the return of Zach Wilson wasn’t spectacular, but it put a win on the board. A 21-14 win over the Texans put New York at 3-8 on the season, with the Jets hitting 21 in one of the more unconventional ways imaginable. Two touchdowns, a two point conversion, and two field goals put the Jets at 21 points, in a game which saw Zach Wilson go 14 of 24 passing for 145 yards and an interception. Wilson’s timing looked a bit rusty in his return, which is to be expected for a rookie who missed four weeks.
The Eagles are playing for their playoff hopes, as they continue to hunt the NFC East-leading Cowboys. At 5-7 with a bye still pending, Philadelphia is very much in play for the 7th seed, along with what feels like the entire NFC. The parity in the NFC can help or hinder the Eagles, as after this game they’ll run an NFC East gauntlet that features Washington twice and the Cowboys and Giants once apiece.
For the Jets, the rest of this season will likely boil down to roster evaluation, but they’ll have a few opportunities to play spoiler, starting this week. If Wilson improves, that will be a good sign for Robert Saleh and his staff in their first year. He’ll have a good test against an Eagles defense that has hovered around league average against the pass so far this season.
