Game Preview – PHI at NO

Posted: November 18th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | Comments Off on Game Preview – PHI at NO

Big game. Tough game.

I do think this is a winnable game.

The Eagles defense needs to make some key plays. The offense needs to score TDs. That hasn’t happened enough this year, but I think the reality of the situation is finally getting to the players. Chris Long told ESPN’s Diana Russini that he thinks the Eagles are a desperate team and this is a must-win game.

If anything good might have come out of Sunday night’s disaster, that might be the thing that finally woke the Eagles up. We’ll see.

I wrote my full game preview for PE.com.

Getting Lane Johnson and Sidney Jones back will help. Looks like we’ll have to wait for Tim Jernigan.

Here is some good stuff from Mike Garafolo on the Eagles defense and a problem we haven’t talked about. Winning on first down.

I’ll be watching that today.

Can Jim Schwartz come up with the right gameplan?

That’s not encouraging, but to be fair, those were Detroit defenses that weren’t that good.

The Eagles have had their issues this year, but no team has scored more than 27 points on them. Will that change today?

Carson Wentz and the offense have to do their part. Move the chains. Score points.

I think play-action and RPOs will be key today. The Saints love to play the run. They will bite on fakes. You must make them pay when they do that.

Turn these into big plays.
