Week 9 of the 2022 NFL season will get underway with the Philadelphia Eagles (7-0) on the road against the Houston Texans (1-5-1) for a Thursday Night Football matchup.
The Eagles are still the only undefeated team left in the NFL coming off their huge win over the Steelers. The 35-13 victory was such a runaway, the offensive starters came off the field in the fourth quarter, and DC Jonathan Gannon noted that they had discussed doing the same for the secondary.
Philly’s offense was once-again completely dominant, and the Jalen Hurts to A.J. Brown connection continues to strengthen each week. Brown only caught 6 of the 11 passes thrown his way, but still managed to set career-highs with 156 yards and three touchdowns. Hurts also set a career-high against Pittsburgh with four passing touchdowns in the game.
With the Steelers secondary woes, it’s not surprising that the Eagles would focus on the passing game. But, we’ve seen through nearly half the season, that the offense can be formidable both through the air and on the ground. Hurts may rely a little bit more on Miles Sanders in Houston, especially coming off a short week.
To make matters more challenging for the Texans, the Eagles success isn’t solely due to their offensive play, the defense has been just as important this season to keeping the team undefeated. Philly did put rookie Jordan Davis on IR ahead of the trip to Texas, but with the addition of Robert Quinn last week, they still have more than enough talent along the defensive front to provide a host of different looks.
