Even after a disastrous two games by Nick Foles and the Eagles' offense, the team isn't tempering expectations of a deep playoff run.
Outside the locker room, the national media is abandoning ship. Down MVP candidate Carson Wentz, the top-seeded Eagles are not just no longer the NFC favorites, they are now looking at a divisional round exit, according to Sports Illustrated.
Of 11 staffers polled, 10 have the Eagles losing in the divisional round, when they will host either the winner of Saints-Panthers or the Falcons, should they beat the Rams — fingers crossed. Shoutout to Andrew Brandt for picking the Eagles to knock off the Saints in the divisional round before losing to the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.
Things were equally grim over at ESPN, where nine of 11 writers picked the Saints over the Eagles.
Not depressing enough? Well, both sites like the Patriots to win the Super Bowl again. If only Wentz had eaten more avocado ice cream.
