The Denver Broncos look to extend their winning streak next week when they host the Philadelphia Eagles.

The reverse jinx worked again (and proved us wrong) for the Denver Broncos. Kudos to the AFC West team, because no one gave them a shot against the Dallas Cowboys. Yet, they held a shutout over the perennial Super Bowl contenders until they surrendered two garbage time touchdowns. Regardless, the Broncos emerged with the 30-16 win.

It seemed impossible, but the Broncos are now on a two-game winning streak. They have gone 3-0 against NFC East teams this season, and look to make it a perfect 4-0 record with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday in Denver.

Here are 5 bold predictions for Broncos against Eagles

5. Javonte Williams has back-to-back 100 yard games

It took nine weeks, but 2021 second-round pick Javonte Williams finally had his first 100 yard rushing game. Better late than never, and he did so inside the bright lights of AT&T Stadium.

The Cowboys run defense had no answers for the Broncos, specifically on the ground. Williams was like a wrecking ball as he bashed his way past the line of scrimmage. Perhaps his best run arrived in the third quarter, where he was seemingly stopped before powering his way forward for a huge gain of yardage.

Williams picked up 111 yards on the ground on 17 carries.

Williams is a master at breaking tackles. According to Pro Football Focus, Williams has a missed tackle rate of 37-percent. No running back has over 30-percent!

The rookie is slated to face an Eagles run defense that has allowed an average of 119.7 yards per game (13th-most in NFL). We say that Williams runs for 100 yards for the second week in a row.
