The argument can be made that the Eagles and Jaguars entered their Week 8 game at Wembley Stadium in London as the most disappointing teams in their respective conferences. The loser of Sunday’s game will be 3-5 halfway through a season in which Super Bowl expectations were realistic, especially for defending-champion Philadelphia.
Then again, since 2011, seven teams have made the playoffs after starting 3-5. Both teams have the talent to turn things around in the second half of the season.
