Have you heard people say this week something along the lines of “it’s hard to beat a team three times in one season?” Of course you have.

Turns out that’s fake news:

So no, it’s not “hard.” It’s probably tricky going up against a division rival who knows you very well and sees you twice a year, but the win/loss records are what they are.

Plus, the Eagles and Giants didn’t REALLY play twice this season. That second game was a throwaway. Put a fat asterisk on it because the G-Men started Davis Webb and the Birds removed 50% of the playbook to protect Jalen Hurts. If we’re counting that one as a real game, then I’m Kenny G on the saxophone.
