Know your Eagles enemy: The New York Jets

History

The Eagles and Jets have face each other ten times in their history.  The Eagles have won all ten.

The last matchup came in 2015, with the Eagles winning 24-17. 

Predictions

The Eagles have a golden opportunity to build some momentum going into the Minnesota game in week six. A win at home will put them 2-0 at home, 3-2 on the season, and on a two game win streak. The Jets are a, for lack of a better term, dumpster fire. The Eagles will win, they will win handedly, and will pay homage to a certain final score against the Minnesota Vikings. 

Eagles win 38-7.

Stat line predictions:

  • Wentz: 31/38 400 yards 4 touchdowns
