This will be an interesting matchup with both teams affected by injuries to defensive starters. For the Eagles, they’ll be without Darius Slay, Jalen Carter, and Justin Evans, and the Jets announced Saturday that both of their starting CBs, Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed, will miss the game. That’s going to be good news for Philly who should be able to take advantage, big time, of the matchups their absences will create.
Jalen Hurts led the Eagles offense to one of their most complete performances to date last weekend against the Rams, but they still only went 2-for-5 in the red zone. A win is great, but the QB admitted that game, and the four before it, would have been completely different if they were able to get into the end zone.
While the injuries to Philly’s defense are less than ideal, this is the week to have them, as they face a Zach Wilson-led Jets offense. Head coach Nick Sirianni was sure to point out that Wilson has a ton of weapons around him and a lot of talent, which is true, but the QB still has to get the ball to them, which hasn’t been all that consistent.
Jason Kelce said he doesn’t believe there are trap games in the NFL because it’s really any given Sunday, but if there was going to be a trap game for the Eagles, this would be it. But, Sirianni and Hurts are nothing if not emphatically consistent with not looking ahead, and taking things one day and one game at a time. With that mindset, it’s tough to see the Eagles not extending their undefeated streak both this season, and all-time against the Jets.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
