Philadelphia Eagles NFL Betting

Maybe we were all wrong about the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles lost by double-digits for the second straight week in Week 2, and this team has not played like the Super Bowl contender we thought they could be in 2020. Carson Wentz has had a really rough go of it, and this team is once again dealing with injuries to skill position players. Philadelphia is still respected enough to be nearly a touchdown favorite at home against Cincinnati this week, but that will change if the Eagles happen to lose this game.

Philadelphia Eagles Week 3 Matchup

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Joe Burrow. The overall No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft has played well in his first two games in the league, keeping Cincinnati competitive in its first two games of the year. The Bengals covered the three points if you got them early in the week against the Chargers, and they picked up the backdoor cover last Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.

Burrow is throwing a lot of underneath passes, but he is finding success. He has completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 5.2 YPA with three touchdowns and an interception. The rookie doesn’t have a reception longer than 25 yards in 97 attempts though, so defenses are going to start to roll up and force him to throw deeper passes. That may be an issue, especially with top target C.J. Uzomah lost for the season and A.J. Green not looking like a No. 1 after missing all of last year due to injury.

Joe Mixon is averaging just 3.3 YPC, as Cincinnati has one of the worst offensive lines in the game. Burrow has been sacked six times despite being elusive in the pocket and throwing a lot of underneath routes, so Philadelphia’s defensive line should win this battle in the trenches. The Eagles are allowing 3.7 YPC despite Derek Barnett and Brandon Graham playing through injuries.

Wentz needs to play better. There’s no question about that. He looked jittery in the pocket against the Rams last week after being sacked eight times against Washington, and he continues to make some questionable decisions with the ball. These are mistakes that should be out of his system entering his fifth year, but he continues to make them. This is by no means a Jameis Winston situation, but the Eagles are right to expect more out of Wentz.

Of course, it hasn’t helped that he continues to be without Alshon Jeffery. Philadelphia has had a hard time keeping talented receivers on the field between Jeffery and Desean Jackson’s woes, but at least the Eagles have two solid tight ends in Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.

The Eagles should be able to move the ball against Cincinnati though. The Bengals still might not have Geno Atkins back on the defensive line, and this secondary has been more than suspect. Cincinnati is allowing 8.0 YPA when other teams take to the air, and those numbers could be worse if the Bengals didn’t see less passes than any other team in the NFL.

Philadelphia Eagles Week 2 Recap

It was a rough outing for the Philadelphia Eagles last week. They turned the ball over three times, and they allowed the Los Angeles Rams to rack up 449 total yards of offense for their second straight loss.

Wentz threw two interceptions and Sanders fumbled once in the 37-19 defeat. Philadelphia otherwise moved the ball somewhat well in this game, but the turnovers were too costly. The Eagles were forced to only use one side of the field in the passing game though as no receiver caught a pass against Jalen Ramsey. This offensive line seemed to rectify a lot of its problems in Week 1 by not allowing a sack and averaging 4.7 YPC.

Philadelphia’s issues on defense are becoming readily apparent. Although Darius Slay was supposed to shore up the secondary, the Eagles are still allowing some big chunk plays in the passing game. Of course, it doesn’t help that the offense is leaving them out to dry due to their turnovers and miscues.
