The Eagles battled their archrivals, the NY Giants, on Sunday and fell by a final score of 13-7 in what was an ugly, turnover-filled game. A late drop from Jalen Reagor was the cherry on top of a disastrous day.
Meanwhile, the Jets managed to win their third game of the season in Week 12 on the back of a strong defensive performance. Zach Wilson made his long-awaited return, and while he had his fair share of struggles, he still came away with the victory.
Can the Jets keep their winning streak alive or will the Eagles bounce back against their inferior foes?

NY Jets vs. Philadelphia Eagles Prediction Week 13
Zach Wilson was bad on Sunday. Really bad. So bad that it's hard to see the Jets winning another game if he struggles as much as he did in Week 12.
The good news is that Wilson showed signs of settling down as the game went on. And it's important to remember that it was his first game back from injury, on top of the fact that it was just his sixth full NFL start.
It's (hopefully) only up from here.
The Eagles are hoping the same is true for quarterback Jalen Hurts who put together perhaps his worst performance of the season on Sunday finishing 14-of-31 for 129 yards, three interceptions, and no touchdowns.
If the Jets could apply pressure on Hurts much as they did against the Texans, they could turn this into another defense-heavy game.
Ultimately, this game might come down to Wilson. If he shows improvements and the defense plays as well as they did in Week 12, the Jets might just be able to win.
This is a beatable Eagles team, as evidenced by their loss to the Giants. But I think they bounce back on Sunday and climb back closer to .500.
Eagles win by a final score of 27-17.
