If the Philadelphia Eagles want to repeat as NFC East division champions, there are a few games of which they must come out victorious in 2014. Here are five must-win games heading into the season.
With Philadelphia playing at Indianapolis and at San Francisco during the first four weeks of the season, it will be crucial for the Eagles to get off to a strong start against the Jags.
One has to assume that it will be tough for Philadelphia to beat the Redskins in Washington, with DeSean Jackson wanting revenge. However, their first matchup is in Philly, one the Eagles will not take lightly.
The Eagles have a few tough games on their schedule, but they are going to need to prove they can beat a solid football team, and on the road. Coming off a bye against the Cardinals seems like no better time.
With the Eagles struggling at home over the past few years, they also need to prove the can beat a good team at the Linc.
The Cowboys should not be anything special this year. However, with their first matchup being on Thanksgiving, Dallas will definitely come to play, making the rematch in Philly a must-win game, no matter the outcome on Turkey Day.
