      OFFENSEThe Eagles are going to win a lot when Carson Wentz and the entire offensive line plays the entire game. Good to see Jason Peters making it through his first full game this season after he had to leave early in Week 1 and Week 2. Peters was a force out on the edge.With the Eagles being so depleted at the skill positions Authentic Lane Johnson Jersey , Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor basically had to play the entire game.Great to see Dallas Goedert much more involved here after he only logged 22% of the snaps in Week 2. The rookie tight end caught all seven of his targets for 73 yards and a touchdown. With the Eagles being so depleted at the skill positions, it’s a no brainer to throw his way.Corey Clement took the most snaps of any Eagles running back. He had 19 combined touches (16 carries and three receptions) while Wendell Smallwood had 13 combined touches (10 carries and three receptions). These two guys combined for 112 rushing yards, 54 receiving yards, and one rushing touchdown. Josh Adams only played eight snaps but he made the most of them by taking six carries for 30 yards. That’s a nice NFL debut for the undrafted rookie. Kamar Aiken outsnapped Jordan Matthews but failed to register a target. I wouldn’t just assume it’ll be Aiken who goes to the bench if/when Alshon Jeffery comes back this week. It could be Jeffery and Aiken on the outside with Agholor in the slot. JMatt could still get some playing time but I don’t think Aiken is just going to the bench, although he probably should. It’ll be much better when the Eagles offense is at a point when they don’t have to play Joshua Perkins for 38% of the snaps.It’s really disappointing to see that Shelton Gibson can only get one measly snap while the Eagles are missing three of their top four wide receivers. Not to mention that Philadelphia’s offense needs a field-stretcher and Gibson has the speed to do that. We saw as much in the preseason. For whatever reason, the coaching staff just doesn’t trust him. DEFENSEMalcolm Jenkins, Jordan Hicks, and Ronald Darby played the entire game. Hicks continues to be the Eagles’ dime linebacker. He finished the day with a team-high eight tackles and two passes defensed. Jalen Mills would’ve played the entire game if he didn’t have to come out for a little bit to get checked up on after breaking up a pass. Rasul Douglas briefly filled in for him.Last year Youth Nelson Agholor Jersey , the Eagles made an effort to conserve Fletcher Cox by limiting his playing time to some extent. Hasn’t been the case this year with the Eagles being thinner at defensive tackle.Corey Graham had to play a lot more than usual with Rodney McLeod leaving the game early due to a knee injury. McLeod indicated he’s going to be OK but we’ll see. Nigel Bradham had to leave the game at one point because he had the wind knocked out of him after colliding with Jenkins. Brandon Graham received the fifth most snaps of any defensive lineman. He played the most snaps of any Eagles defensive end in 2017. A reminder that the Eagles’ weakside linebacker spot isn’t incredibly important: Kamu Grugier-Hill played nine defensive snaps on Sunday. The Eagles don’t really trust undrafted rookie free agent Bruce Hector to play much. The defensive tackle options behind Cox just aren’t very inspiring, which is why we see Michael Bennett get a lot of interior work. SPECIAL TEAMSAvonte Maddox is tied with Grugier-Hill for the Eagles’ lead in special teams tackle with two. D.J. Alexander got flagged for running into the Colts’ punter. Thankfully it didn’t end up costing the Eagles a third down stop.Nathan Gerry didn’t see a single defensive snap for the first time this season.DID NOT PLAYInactive: Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles, Alshon Jeffery, Nate Sudfeld, Chance Warmack, Jordan Mailata, Matt PryorActive but did not play: Nick Foles , Josh SweatEagles vs. Giants Game Predictions Well, here we are.It’s only Week 6 and in some ways it already feels like the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles’ season is on the line.Beating the New York Giants tonight means advancing to first in the division at 3-3. Losing means dropping to dead last at 2-4. But tonight’s game isn’t just about the impact on the standings. It’s about gauging this team’s makeup. How are they going to respond to losing their last two games in disappointing fashion? Are the Eagles a good team going through some struggles or are they just a flat out bad team?The Eagles have an opportunity to answer those questions tonight, and it all starts with the guy under center: Carson Wentz. This is the kind of game where a franchise quarterback needs to put the team on his back and carry them to victory.Wentz should be aided by the fact that the Giants have a pedestrian pass rush; New York ranks dead last in sacks and 27th in hits. At the same time, the Eagles could potentially be without Lane Johnson, who reportedly has an up-hill battle to play tonight. That’s not good for an Eagles offensive line that’s already had some issues protecting Wentz.Defensively, we all know the Eagles’ pass rush is a mismatch for the Giants’ offensive line on paper. But we thought the same thing last year and New York countered by having Eli Manning getting rid of the ball super quick.A big reason why the Eagles were ultimately able to beat the Giants twice in 2017 is because Manning turned the ball over. He threw three picks in those two games combined. The Eagles will likely have some chances to intercept him again tonight. They need to capitalize on those opportunities. So far this year, Philadelphia has only logged five takeaways. Only two teams have fewer. I’d be lying to you if I said I had immense confidence heading into this game. It’s not that the Giants are some super scary opponent. It’s just that the Eagles have been their own worst enemy so far this year. It’s hard to fully believe in them when they’re constantly shooting themselves in the foot. Here’s hoping the Eagles will be able to get out of their own way tonight. I do think they have the capability to right some of these wrongs. It’s not like they’ve been getting blown out all year. They still have a lot of talent.It won’t be easy tonight. Missing Johnson could really hurt. The weather being bad makes me a little uneasy because Wentz hasn’t had his best games in the rain. Ultimately, though Fletcher Cox Jersey , I’m taking the Eagles because I think they’re the better team. Real invigorating analysis there, I know, but I’m not taking the combo of an inspiring Pat Shurmur and a washed Eli Manning over Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz.Suggested format:Score prediction:Bold prediction:My predictions:Score prediction: 33-30, Eagles win.Bold prediction: Corey Clement scores three touchdowns in his return.Fan predictions:Bleeding Green Nation FanPulse (survey of Eagles fans): Eagles favored by 5 pointsBig Blue View FanPulse (survey of Vikings fans): Eagles favored by 1 pointLeave your own predictions in the comments.
