In this week’s pick, we are going to the NFL. My game to watch is the Philadelphia Eagles at the FedEx Field to face the Washington Commanders. 

Former Philadelphia Eagle and now Washington Commander starting quarterback Carson Wentz will try to defeat his former team. Wentz played five seasons for the Eagles, winning an NFL Super Bowl in 2017, according to Pro Football Reference. This game will be the first time Wentz faces his former team in the regular season

My pick is the Eagles winning this week three matchup, as the receiving core of A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith will be too much for the Commanders. Eagles starting quarterback Jalen Hurts will have to play his best versus a solid Commander’s defense. 

This National Football Conference, or NFC, eastern conference matchup should be a good one, as both teams look to be frontrunners for the division championship.

From someone who is not an insufferable Dallas Cowboy fan, this sucks.
