The Philadelphia Eagles lose one game and now every NFL media pundit is talking out…
The Philadelphia Eagles will be traveling to MetLife Stadium on Sunday for a Week 6 matchup with the New York Jets.
Luckily the Eagles won’t have to travel far in Week 6. This will be their second straight road game and third away from The Linc in four weeks – all of which happen in just a 20 day window.
For the second consecutive year, the Eagles will enter Week 6 with a perfect 5-0 record. Last week, they left Los Angeles with an impressive road win on the road, defeating the Matt Stafford and the Rams 23-14. They will enter Sunday against the Jets as 7-point favorites.

As we inch closer to tomorrow’s 4:25 PM ET game, we will take a look at what some the New York Jets players and staff have to say about the Eagles.
Breece Hall, RB
“Every game you’re looking at coming out and winning. So I guess just because they’re undefeated doesn’t really play a factor in motivating us to win. We want to go out and win every week regardless of who we’re playing.”
Robert Saleh, Head coach
“They’ve got playmakers all over the place. It’s as talented a group as I’ve seen in a long time. … There’s a reason why they were the NFC champs and that close to winning a Super Bowl. It’s going to be a challenge.”
Jeff Ulbrich, Defensive coordinator
“Goodness gracious. There is no secret why they went to the NFC championship game, why they went to the Super Bowl, why they’re 5-0. A tremendous team that is talented at all three levels. They’re an absolute pain in the butt. It’s not only talent, but schematically they challenge you a lot of different ways. They do a lot of stuff that, it’s just not common in NFL football. That’s a lot more prevalent in the college game.”
Zach Wilson, QB
“These guys are obviously really good. A lot of players all the way around. Obviously, the big guys up front, too. I think I remember playing them my rookie year, and they talk a lot. As a quarterback, that is exciting because those guys are getting after it.”
The Jets have a long-standing record of 0-12 against the Eagles, never managing to secure a win against them. Their last encounter occurred two years ago, resulting in a 33-18 victory for the Eagles, a win that came with Gardner Minshew under center filling in for an injured Jalen Hurts.
Speaking of Hurts, in the last 23 regular season games he’s started, the Eagles have an outstanding 22-1 record.
Will the Jets fall to 0-13 all-time against the Philadelphia Eagles?
There’s a great chance of that happening. There’s only one NFL quarterback rated lower than Zach Wilson, and he shares MetLife with him in Daniel Jones, which is very fitting.
The strong suit of the Jets was supposed to be the defense, which has been middling at best because they’re on the field too much due to the offense being unable to move the ball. That sounds like a recipe for disaster, as the Eagles dominate the time of possession game.
