2. NFL Teams That Should Be On Upset Alert In Week 5 – Philadelphia Eagles
“Heavy is the head that wears the crown” is a mantra that will apply to the Eagles for a bit now as the NFL’s last unbeaten team. Philadelphia found itself in an early hole in Week 4, falling behind the Jaguars 14-0, but Trevor Lawrence essentially fumbled away his team’s chances down the stretch.
There is a lot to like with the Eagles, who can win in a variety of ways and are loaded with playmakers on both sides of the ball. The schedule is also largely favorable for Philadelphia, which can push itself towards the NFC’s top seed if they manage the next few weeks well.
All eyes for the Eagles could be on Week 6’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, which could feature the return of Dak Prescott in a game that will be aired in prime time. Looking ahead to that game could leave the Eagles in a tricky spot this week as they head to Arizona to take on the Cardinals.
Philadelphia is favored by 5.5 points against the Cardinals, who have been inconsistent this year but remain very talented and put together their best performance of the season in a road win against Carolina in Week 4. Overlooking Arizona could lead to the 1972 Miami Dolphins popping champagne as the Eagles get upset in the desert.
