We have a potential offensive showdown on Monday Night Football this week. In the twelfth week of the NFL season, the struggling Green Bay Packers will head to the City of Brotherly Love to take on Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Packers are on a downward spiral, with another loss last week in Washington as the Redskins beat them 42-24. The Eagles took a loss as well, falling to the Seattle Seahawks on the road last week.
The Packers need to make some changes and fast. Their season is going down the toilet fast, as they now sit with a 4-6 record following four straight losses. Their last win came in unconvincing fashion against the Chicago Bears, who are not exactly a good team. The team’s defense has not been playing up to par. Aaron Rodgers is making some terrible throws. And Mike McCarthy just seems to be clueless on the sidelines most of the time to name a few of their issues. Now they head out for a road game against a team who plays their best in their home stadium.
Yes, the Eagles are a really good home team, as they have not lost at home yet this season. They have shown a few weaknesses this year, but not when they are in their stadium. Carson Wentz will look like a rookie at times, and an All-Pro at other times. The running game surprisingly ranks seventh in the league, although several backs are banged up right now. Their offense should be able to pick apart this Packers defense the way they are playing. As for the defense, they decide not to show up some weeks, and then grind other weeks. Thankfully for the team, it is usually at home that the defense seems to be motivated.
Line: Phi -3.5, O/U: 47.5
Pick: Eagles and the over
