Packers Have Dim Playoff Hopes
It’s been a long time since the Packers were out of the playoff picture this early in the season. They can at least gain some respect if they can pull off a win on the road tonight. After surprising the Cowboys in overtime two weeks ago, Green Bay was beaten at home by the Tennessee Titans 27-17 last Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers isn’t listed on the team injury report but says he’s been playing with a broken right thumb he suffered back in Week 5. He’s thrown for 2,542 yards and 19 touchdowns, which is fourth in the league.
Aaron Jones leads the ground attack with 778 yards and two touchdowns, and Allen Lazard is Green Bay’s top receiver with 38 receptions for 529 yards and five touchdowns.
Eagles Must Control Running Game
The Eagles look to get their offense back on track after two straight mediocre performances. They’ll have to depend on their running game, ranked sixth in the league, to control the clock against Green Bay.
Philly is ranked fourth in the NFL in scoring but must go up against the Packers’ fourth-ranked pass defense. The Eagles are looking to have a big game at home and recover from two below-average performances recently.
Jalen Hurts has thrown for 2,407 yards and 19 touchdowns to lead the Philadelphia offense. Miles Sanders is the leading rusher with 757 yards and six touchdowns, and A.J. Brown is the Eagles’ best receiver with 785 yards and six touchdowns. His 16 yards-per-catch ranks him seventh in the NFL.
