Gameday – DET at PHI

Posted: September 22nd, 2019 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | Comments Off on Gameday – DET at PHI

The big question for today…who is playing?

Carson Wentz will be missing his top two WRs. He will have Dallas Goedert, although we’re not sure how effective Goedert will be. Jimmy Bama kept a close eye on him in pre-game workouts and Goedert was clearly less than 100 percent. It is possible the Eagles made him active as an emergency option.

Young WRs are going to have a real chance to show what they can do. Nelson Agholor is the old man. Mack Hollins, JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward will need to make plays to help the passing game be effective. I’m sure the Lions will be focused on shutting down Zach Ertz.

Wentz and Pederson will need to be at their best today for this offense to put up points. Doug has to call the right plays and Carson has to execute them.

An X-factor in this game could be special teams. The Lions have been sloppy in that area. The Eagles are usually good so they could have an advantage.

Daeshon Hall will make his 2019 debut. It will be interesting to see if he plays on defense. I’d love to see him get out there and make a play.

Homefield advantage has served the Eagles well in the Pederson era. Let’s hope that is true today. This is not a game you want to lose.
