After a humbling loss on the road to the Seattle Seahawks a week ago, the Eagles return home to Philadelphia to take on the reeling Green Bay Packers in what is an extremely crucial game as the NFL season enters the home stretch.
The Eagles head into this matchup with just two players listed on their injury report, while the Packers list eight. Green Bay is particularly thin along the interior of their offensive line and in their secondary. You can find the updated injury report with analysis here.
The Eagles' embattled receivers will have an outstanding opportunity to redeem themselves to some degree against a Packers secondary that is allowing a disgusting 8.6 yards per pass attempt this season. Meanwhile, the Eagles will have a second crack at a mobile quarterback in Aaron Rodgers after Russell Wilson made play after play against a frustrated Eagles defense last week. Here are our five matchups to watch.
The Eagles head into this game as 3.5-point favorites. In the past, when all three of our staff writers picked the Eagles to win, we've jinxed them. See our staff picks here.
