Philadelphia at New York Jets Game Preview
Why Philadelphia Will Win
The Eagles should run for a bazillion yards.
The Jets had a few problems with Houston running the ball. No one has a problem with Houston running the ball.
The Eagles might not be consistent enough and they’re struggling game in and game out to generate consistent points, but they’re running wild with the league’s best ground attack.
Helped by a slew of good backs in a rotation to help out Gardner Minshew – filling in for an injured Jalen Hurts. The Eagles hit 200 rushing yards in each of the last three games and in four of the last five.
Teams are usually too busy throwing to bother with the ground game against the Jets, but that’s about to change.
Why New York Jets Will Win
As long as the offense isn’t turning the ball over, the team can keep up.
Philadelphia’s offense put up 70 points over a two-game stretch before falling off the map against the Giants, but in general the offense stalls way too often and the defense doesn’t force enough mistakes – a recent win over the Saints aside.
Helped by the emergence of Elijah Moore, the Jet passing game has more pop, the defense held Houston to almost nothing, and in general the team has been far more competitive than it was early in the season.
To pull this off, though, the Eagles have to turn it over four times like it did last week against the Giants, but …
What’s Going To Happen
Hurts has issues with his ankle, Boston Scott might be sick, and Jordan Howard is out, but …
The Eagle running game will be too much.
The Jets really are getting better, and they’ll connect on a few big plays to make Minshew and company press, but the 200+ rushing yards will be too good to overcome.
