Micah Parsons already talks about the Philadelphia Eagles ahead of their Week 16 matchup. But the Eagles aren’t moving too fast.
Parsons, a star defender on The Voncast asked if quarterback Jalen Hurts was only a MVP candidate due to the “system” and “team”.
According to ESPN’s Tim McManus, Parsons was encouraged by Jordan Mailata, Eagles offensive tackle, to keep his eyes on the upcoming opponent.
“I’m going to worry about the Chicago Bears this week. I’m worried about this game,” Mailata said. “Micah should worry about his game this week, too. I don’t know who the f— they’re playing, pardon my language. Just worry about who you got this week.”
He concluded that the Eagles “got the Chicago Bears, not the Chicago Micah Parsons” on their schedule in Week 15.
“We’ve got the Chicago Bears, not the Chicago Micah Parsons.”

When asked about Parsons’ comments, Hurts used a similar approach but was more concise and less profane.
He stated that he was worried about Bears right now to reporters on Wednesday.
The Cowboys need to be wary of a trap against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They have scored 294, despite their 5-8 record. This was after a stunning Week 14 victory over the Tennessee Titans.
The Eagles have been trying to avoid the temptation of overlooking the 3-10 Bears who have lost six of their last six games. If they beat the Cowboys on Christmas Eve, they can keep their seat in the driver’s chair for a division title or first round bye.
Before they prepare for the epic Week 16 showdown, Super Bowl hopefuls need to take care of business.
