Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers Pick & Prediction SEP 26TH 2019


The Green Bay Packers decided to go in a different direction after firing longtime coach Mike McCarthy late last season, and it's hard to argue with the results. While two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers is not putting up the numbers typically associated with him, the Packers are seeking their first 4-0 start in four years when they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.

Rodgers and the offense have not had to do much thanks to a Green Bay defense that has yet to allow more than 16 points in a game and ranks second in the league with 35 allowed. "I want to play better. I want to score more points," Rodgers told reporters after Sunday's 27-16 win over Denver. "I mean, obviously you love having a defense, but I don't take any satisfaction in having an OK performance. No. I want to have greatness out there." The Eagles certainly want more than what they have shown since rallying for a five-point victory versus Washington in Week 1, dropping back-to-back games at Atlanta and Detroit by a total of seven points. "This is not a defining moment for our team at all," Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson told reporters after Sunday's 27-24 home loss to the Lions. "Again, only three games in. We gotta get some things fixed, we know that."

TV: 8:20 p.m. ET, FOX, NFL Network. LINE: Packers -5. O/U: 45

ABOUT THE EAGLES (1-2): Pederson canceled practice one day last week due to the number of injuries on the team, but the receiving corps could get a boost with the expected return of Alshon Jeffery after he sat out Sunday's contest due to a calf strain. DeSean Jackson remains sidelined with an abdominal strain, but Nelson Agholor filled the void with a pair of scoring receptions while hauling in eight catches for the second week in a row. Carson Wentz could use more help from his running game, but rookie Miles Sanders is struggling with ball-protection issues and the team is averaging only 3.6 yards per carry. The Eagles rank 29th in the league against the pass, surrendering 293.7 yards per game, and have recorded only two sacks in three contests.



ABOUT THE PACKERS (3-0): Green Bay is allowing nearly 100 fewer yards passing (197.3) than Philadelphia and has registered 12 sacks after collecting six and forcing three turnovers against the Broncos on Sunday. Rodgers is putting up passing numbers that one would expect under Vince Lombardi in the 1960s - his 235 yards last week represented a season high and his 647 total is his second-lowest in the first three games of a season of his career. Rodgers said it's imperative to get the ball in the hands of wideout Davante Adams, who has recorded 15 receptions and zero touchdowns one season after racking up 111 catches and 13 scores. Marquez Valdes-Scantling made six catches for 99 yards and a TD last week while Aaron Jones also scored twice but gained only 19 yards on 10 carries.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Rodgers has notched 10 TDs and zero interceptions in his last four contests versus NFC East foes.

2. Eagles TE Zach Ertz has made 17 catches but has yet to find the end zone.

3. Adams had five receptions for 113 yards and two TDs in the last meeting, a 27-13 win at Philadelphia in November 2016.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers

Two goal-line stands helped the visiting Philadelphia Eagles beat the Green Bay Packers 34-27 on Thursday night.

Carson Wentz threw three touchdown passes and Jordan Howard ran for 87 yards and two touchdowns as the Eagles avoided a 1-3 start. It was their maligned defense, however, that saved the day with two big fourth-quarter stops.

With Philadelphia leading 34-27, the Packers had first-and-goal at the 1-yard line with about 10 minutes remaining. The Packers threw it on all four plays - even with star receiver Davante Adams in the medical tent with a toe injury - but came up empty. On fourth down, quarterback Aaron Rodgers bought time to his right and threw to the back of the end zone to tight end Jimmy Graham, who couldn't make a leaping grab.

The Packers got another chance, starting at their 11 with 5:02 remaining. Even without Adams, Rodgers completed seven passes to get a first-and-goal at the 7.

On the last of those completions, an 11-yarder to tight end Robert Tonyan with 1:06 to play, Eagles defensive back Avonte Maddox was hit hard by a teammate, safety Andrew Sendejo.

Maddox stayed on the turf for several minutes before being carted off the field. One play later, with the ball at the 3 and about 30 seconds remaining, defensive back Craig James - who was on the practice squad a couple days ago - broke up a pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and linebacker Nigel Bradham made the saving interception.

Rodgers threw for 422 yards as the Packers finished with a 491-336 edge in offensive yards.

The Eagles led 21-20 at the end of a wild first half.

The Packers came out hot again with their third opening-drive touchdown in as many games. A 58-yard reception by Adams set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Aaron Jones. Mason Crosby tacked on a field goal on the Packers' next drive for a 10-0 lead, but Miles Sanders returned the ensuing kickoff 67 yards to set up Wentz's 6-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery.

A 40-yard catch by Adams helped put the Packers ahead 13-7 but the Eagles answered with Wentz's 3-yard touchdown to tight end Dallas Goedert to lead 14-13.

A sack/strip by defensive end Derek Howard set up the Eagles on the Packers' 17, and Howard waltzed in from the 1 to make it 21-13 with 59 seconds left in the half. Green Bay scored just before halftime on Rodgers' 19-yard touchdown to receiver Geronimo Allison.
