Just when I could start feeling good about my Philadelphia Eagles, they come out last Sunday and played a stinker against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

Quarterback Jalen Hurts looked awful in throwing three interceptions. In the first half, the Eagles abandoned the running game, which had been vital in their resurgence. Normally sure-handed running back Boston Scott had a crucial fumble late in the fourth quarter as the Eagles were driving for a touchdown and the lead. And then wide receiver Jalen Reagor, a wasted first-round 2020 draft pick, had two inexcusable drops as the Eagles had a second chance to take the lead.

The Eagles are back at MetLife Stadium on Sunday when they face the New York Jets. The Jets are 3-8 and are in last place in the AFC East. It’s a winnable game for the 5-7 Eagles. But so was the game against the Giants. I keep hearing that the Eagles have an easy schedule down the stretch. I don’t want to hear anything about easy schedules. If you don’t win those games, then it’s not an easy schedule.

And for you Giants fans, don’t think for a second that the win over the Eagles cured everything. You still have issues on offense, and now it’s going to get even more complicated now that quarterback Daniel Jones appears to be out with a neck issue.

I had a good Week 12, going 10-5. I improved to 107-74-1.
