The Eagles are in for a tough defensive game this week with the Denver Broncos coming to town. They match up well on defense and with the LT Jason Peters out expect the Broncos to throw a lot at Big V, yes big V because his name is to hard for most people to pronounce. Oh you don’t think so, well here try it out. Halapoulivaati Vaitai (pronounced hal-lah-poo-lee-VAH-tee VIE-tie), yeah even with the pronunciation help you still screwed it up. Any way, they are going to throw a lot his way not because he sucks but because he isn’t Jason Peters. He may be one day just not today. This will be okay because we can offset the blitz with quick passes and a fluid running game.
Wait!!!!!!! Did some one say running game, hell yeah. Jay Ajayi, welcome to Philly big dog. We are already the #5 rushing team in the NFL and with the addition of Ajayi we will be the number 1 team over the next 8 games. Ajayi is coming off a short practice week which means he will get some designed carries. I expect him to run the ball 10-15 times at most. I do think he will find the end-zone. Being able to run the ball effectively will offset the blitz packages that are sure to come. Plus its age-old tactics in football that you use the run to set up the pass. Did someone say pass, oh yeah that’s right we have the MVP from the first half of the season in Carson Wentz who is nasty on third downs and just so happens to lead the league in TD passes. Sorry Deshaun Watson, it would have been nice to see you and Carson battle for that top spot. You two are the wave of the future in this league.
The Eagles will struggle a little in the beginning but ultimately take care of business. The statue known as Brock Osweiler will turn the ball over at least twice, and get sacked at least 3 times in the game. Eagles will drop over 20 points in this one continuing their streak of 20+ points in a game to 13 straight games dating back to last season.
Final Score in this 24-13. Eagles of Course.
