The Struggling Eagles Head To Historic Lambeau Field This Sunday
This Sunday, the Eagles travel to historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay to play the 8-3 Packers. This mythical football "Field Of Dreams" where Vince Lombardi once walked the sideline will be the backdrop for Sundays 4:25 kickoff. After Monday Night's loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the Eagles third straight loss, they have to face the highest scoring offense in the NFC: Green Bay has scored 349 Total Points this season. Packers' Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is playing some of his best football defying logic at age 37, leading the NFL with 33 Touchdown Passes along with only 4 Interceptions.
The Eagles defensive secondary will have their work cut out for them against one of the best offenses in the league. Even though Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver DK Metcalf torched the Eagles Secondary, specifically Darius Slay, the Birds Defensive Backs have played surprisingly well this year. The Eagles Defense has given up only 14 Passing Touchdowns this season, which is the third best in the NFL, and they have allowed just 2,318 Passing Yards against, which is eighth best in the league. If the Eagles Defense can put pressure on Aaron Rogers, who has only been sacked 11 times this year, and they can win the turnover battle, the Eagles have a shot to beat the NFC North leading Packers at home, which the Eagles did last year on September 26th.
In The Locker Room with Billy Schweim this Saturday, Scott McKay and I will discuss Monday Night's loss to Seattle and look at what chances the Birds on Sunday at Lambeau Field. Plus, we will also talk with Hall of Fame Offensive Lineman Jerry Kramer, who played for Vince Lombardi and the legendary Packers teams during their Championship run during the 1960’s. Jerry has put together 2 CD’s and a photo book from that time period capturing audio from “ Inside The Locker Room” that's on sale exclusively on Facebook.
