The Philadelphia Eagles (7-2) are looking good coming off of a blowout win against the Carolina Panthers. Now, the team's focus shifts to their toughest task of the season to date. The Eagles will travel to Green Bay to face the Packers (6-3) at Lambeau Field. The Packers are always a formidable opponent, but they are absolutely dominant when playing at home.
The Eagles lucked out last season when they were able to beat the Packers with Scott Tolzien and Seneca Wallace at quarterback. The teams are facing completely different scenarios this time around, as Aaron Rodgers is back for the Packers and Mark Sanchez has replaced Nick Foles in the Eagles lineup. This match-up has the makings of a high-scoring shoot out between two of the best teams in the NFC.
