Jason Kelce, the heart and soul of our Philadelphia Eagles, couldn't care less about a…
The Philadelphia Eagles will square off against the New York Jets in an NFL Week 6 showdown at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The Eagles improved to a perfect 5-0 on the season following a 23-14 victory over the Los Angeles Rams last weekend.
Jalen Hurts completed 25-of-38 passes for 303 yards, a touchdown, and an interception while rushing the football 15 times for 72 yards and a touchdown. Dallas Goedert had a breakout game, hauling in eight catches for 117 yards and a tuddy, while AJ Brown caught six receptions for 127 yards in the win.
Hurts and the Eagles’ offense out gained the Rams on offense 454-249 in total yards.
On the other side of the football, the Eagles’ defense held the Rams scoreless in the second half while holding Matt Stafford and company to just 14 total points.
Through five weeks, the Eagles are second in total offense and fifth in points per game (28.2). On the defensive side of the ball, the Birds’ shines in the trenches. They lead in the NFL in rushing yards allowed (61.2) and surrender just 3.4 yards per carry.
Eagles will be without defensive tackle Jalen Carter and cornerback Darius Slay Jr against the Jets. According to Nick Sirianni, both injuries are not considered to be long-term issues.
As for the New York Jets, they beat up on the lowly Denver Broncos last weekend 31-21 to stop a three-game losing streak. They outscored Denver 23-8 in the second half and finished the game with 407 total yards.
Zach Wilson completed 19-of-26 passing attempts for 199 yards and an interception. Breece Hall led the offensive charge for the New York with 22 carries for 177 yards and a touchdown.
The New York Jets are a very bad team offensively. They average just 18.6 points per game (24th in NFL). Zach Wilson has thrown for just 911 yards and four touchdowns while getting picked off five interceptions.
|Philadelphia Eagles||-7 (-110)||-320||O 41.5|
|New York Jets||+7 (-110)||+260||U 41.5|
Jalen Hurts is 22-1 in his last 23 regular season starts. The Philadelphia Eagles have NEVER lost to the Jets and will enter today’s game a perfect 12-0 against New York all-time.
The game plan for the Eagles against the Jets is clear as day. Put the ball in Zach Wilson’s hand and make him beat you. Losing Jalen Carter up front against a rush-heavy offensive game plan from the Jets with Breece Hall running well is certainly not ideal but the depth and personnel on defense for the Birds should be perfectly fine.
The Jets inability to move and really, pass the football on offense with Zach Wilson under center will ultimately lose them this game by double digits.
Lay the points with the Eagles on the road against the New York Jets.
