Why Philadelphia Eagles Will Win
Jalen Hurts wasn’t bad.
He’s not Aaron Rodgers quite yet, but he was fine against New Orleans, he brought a new energy, and the team broke a four-game losing streak with a win. The offense came up with its best day since mid-October.
The defense continues to be great against downfield pass plays, the Eagle passing attack is decent at pushing the ball a bit, and in this, it’s about the turnovers.
Philadelphia is 4-0 when generating two or more takeaways, and 0-8-1 when it doesn’t. Arizona has given it up two times or more six times and in two of the last three games.
Why Arizona Cardinals Will Win
Jalen Hurts wasn’t that good.
He was fine, and the running game was great thanks to Hurts, but he misfired on a few too many passes. There isn’t much of an Eagle passing game to worry about, and now the Cardinals have a full game tape of Hurts to figure out how to try keeping him in the pocket.
Arizona should be able to run well. It’s been a bit hit-or-miss over the last few weeks, but the Eagles had problems with the Browns, Giants, and Packers were able to run without any issues. If the Cardinals can commit to the run and get Kyler Murray in a groove and if they outrush the Eagles, they win.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
QB Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia
He’s one of the biggest home run swing calls in the fantasy playoffs. He’s going to run, and he’s eventually going to be a playmaker around the goal line. While he only threw for 167 yards and a touchdown against New Orleans, he ran for 106 yards. There’s a chance you can win your big game if Hurts comes up large.
What’s Going To Happen
Philadelphia needs this to stay alive – barely – in the playoff chase, and Arizona has to pull this off to stay in the top seven. A 7-6 Cardinal loss is a big, big problem with the 6-7 Vikings and Bears playing each other.
Home hasn’t meant everything to the Cardinals, but it’ll come up with a good defensive effort to go along with a strong all-around performance from Murray.
