New Orleans Saints Vs Philadelphia Eagles Game Day Preview
The Philadelphia Eagles don’t need a reminder about what happened the last time these two teams faced off against each other. It was in the 2018 divisional playoffs. Nick Foles threw a perfect pass that went right through the hands of Alshon Jeffery, and was picked off. The Eagles look to get sweet revenge, but this time, its with a new cast of players.
New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints are rolling through the 2020 season. They have won their last 9 games. Taysom Hill has done a great job at the QB position filling in for Drew Brees who is hurt with some cracked ribs. Now, as they approach an ever so important road game against the ailing Eagles, Taysom Hill will need to be on top of his game in an effort to keep the streak going.
The Eagles have had one heck of a year and not necessarily in a positive way. Today the team will be starting Jalen Hurts, as questions surface on if this is the end of the line for Carson Wentz. It is an interesting game for the Eagles, and really will be a telling game for the Eagles front office. If Hurts plays well, they look like geniuses. If he plays poorly, they look like idiots again. There is no middle ground.
While the offense has been horrendous, the defense has seemed to improve. The biggest improvement has been the defensive line. The front line is led by Brandon Graham. He has 7 sacks on the year. But, Fletcher Cox is not too far behind him with 6.5 sacks of his own. In conclusion, the defensive line will need to come to play again if the Eagles want a chance to win.
