green bay packers 33 vs philadelphia eagles 40
This NFC matchup features old vs. young quarterbacks as one of the all time greats will try to hand young Jalen Hurts his second loss of the season on Sunday night.
The Packers have entered uncharted territory this season. After going 3-1 to start their season, the Packers proceeded to go 1-6 over their next 7 games, making it easy to forgot they were #1 in the NFC last year. In last week’s game against the the titans, rookie Christian Watson secured 2 more touchdowns, giving him 5 in his last 2 games. However, Watson’s scores were the only touchdowns the Packers scored that week, and their defense was unable to hold up.
While the Eagles have seemed unstoppable, their last two games show that they may be losing momentum. After getting upset by the Commanders, the Eagles struggled to beat the Jeff Saturday coached Colts in a nailbiter 17-16 road win. Jalen Hurts continues to dominate on the ground, with 6 rushing touchdowns and 440 rushing yards on the season. The Philadelphia defense is nothing to be trifled with either, and they have held their opponents to under 20 points in all but 3 games this season.
