LombardiAve: With the Dallas Cowboys still left on the Eagles’ schedule twice along with a visit from the Seattle Seahawks, how important is Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers?
Insidetheiggles: The game on the road at Lambeau is the toughest game on the Eagles schedule.
The history, the atmosphere, the pure sport is centered there.
Earlier in the season, the Eagles had to travel cross country to the West Coast, which historically has placed East Coast teams at a disadvantage. At a 2-2 road record, the Eagles could conceivably do OK if they win out after a loss, but Dallas is playing at a high level and there is always the potential for the letdown game.
Seattle is also returning to form, just in time to visit Philly. To ensure the Eagles compete for home field in any postseason, this game is huge.
