How do you expect the Eagles secondary to respond to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery?
Well, that is an excellent question. I do believe last weeks humbling loss against the Vikings Kelly and the Eagles will adjust appropriately. I am sure Kelly spent a lot of time breaking this down this week. It was definitely a wake up call for them and I feel that Kelly and the players will adjust and not let that happen again. They are making changes to improve their secondary. Eagles Safety Keelan Johnson was promoted to the active roster. I think that is a wise move. Eagles Safety Earl Wolff is planning to play against the Bears and his presence will be a much needed shot to the Eagles secondary. That said, he is coming off an injury from 5 weeks ago. So I think Keelan is an insurance policy in case Wolff can’t play at his full potential his first game back from injury.
What is your prediction for the game and final score?
I do think the Eagles will prevail on Sunday. The Bears defense is porous. They are ranked 27th in yards allowed per game. LeSean McCoy has had his way with many defenses. If he struggles early he always finds a way eventually and will end up in the end-zone. Also, Nick Foles is a stingy and accurate quarterback. I think last week’s humbling loss will motivate the Eagles on both sides of the ball. That said, it could be a meaningless game if the Dallas Cowboys win earlier in the day. I don’t think Kelly will rest his starters. I think they will play to win the game regardless of what happens earlier in the day. Eagles Win 38 – 27.
