Can the Philadelphia Eagles return to their winning ways and end this two-game losing streak? After being embarrassed by the 49ers (42-19 Final Score) two weeks ago at home and last Sunday night in Dallas (33-13 Final Score), the Eagles need to prove that they can turn it around in Seattle on Monday night. Philadelphia's defense has allowed 75 points in the last two games and have surrendered 24.7 points per game this season, which is 28th in the NFL ahead of the start of Week 15. What’s worse is they are last in the league in getting off the field on third down, which is a recipe for losing games.
The Offense isn’t playing much better: Out of the four NFL teams that are 10-3 this season, the Eagles points differential is just plus 21. Compare that to the Cowboys (+188), The 49ers (+ 175), and the Ravens (+143). Eagles Quarterback Jalen Hurts and the Eagles offense have turned the ball over 19 times this year and are a -4 in turnover differential. If the Eagles are going to win the NFC East for the second straight year and go deep into the NFL Playoffs, they have to clean up this mess and turn things around before it is too late.
Thank God the Sixers have won six of their last eight games and the Flyers are 15-10-3 heading into action on Thursday night. We will talk about it all this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim.
