Main Storylines to Watch
How do the Eagles respond after losing their first game in Week 6? The Eagles have lost two regular season games in the past two seasons where Jalen Hurts was the starting quarterback. The Eagles have looked sloppy all season long in 2023 but came out victorious until last week against the Jets. The Eagles need to be sharp on offense if they want to keep up with this high-powered Dolphins offense. The Eagles secondary is very banged-up and will be tasked with trying to stop Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle in the passing game. This is a great test Philadelphia.
Can the Dolphins beat a championship-caliber team? The Dolphins have five wins against teams that have a combined record of (5-24). They faced off against the (4-2) Bills and got blown out. The Eagles are more comparable to the Bills than the rest of their previous opponents. The Dolphins will want to prove they can beat a high-quality opponent instead of just feasting on the lower-tier teams. This is a prime opportunity for the Dolphins to prove they are a worthy championship contender.
