The Eagles are coming off of their worst loss in quite some time, as they were blown out by the Green Bay Packers in Week 11. On Sunday, the Eagles will face a less daunting challenge against the Titans. Tennessee comes into Week 12 with a 2-8 record, while the Eagles are still leading the NFC East at 7-3.
While the Titans present an underwhelming match-up on paper, the Eagles will need to play well to beat the road underdogs. The Titans have been able play tight against some teams and the Eagles would be foolish to look past them. The Eagles will play two games within a five-day span up ahead, so they'll need to stay healthy and churn out a solid performance against the struggling AFC South squad.
