If you thought it’s been hard being an Eagles fan this year with all their inconsistencies, try being a Denver Broncos fan. They get rid of Jay Cutler and there’s question of how Kyle Orton can come in and handle the offense. To everyone’s surprise, they come out 6-0 with wins over teams like the Bengals, Cowboys, Patriots, and Chargers. Life is great and they get to use their Week Seven bye to reflect on their perfection to that point. They come back Week Eight and all hell breaks lose. The team travels to Baltimore and gets pummeled 30-7. From here the slide continues, and they drop 3 more games after that to sit at 6-4. On Thanksgiving day, they crush the Giants at home then have a cake walk in Kansas City the following week. So life is good right? Not quite. They drop a game to the Colts (no reason to hang your head there) and then come out and lose a heart breaker to the Raiders.
So here we are. An 8-6 Denver Broncos team will come to Philadelphia this weekend desperate for a win to keep on pace for the playoffs. Which team can we expect? Who knows but I can see this game being a battle. The Broncos are in the position they are in because of their defense. Statistically, they’re 7th in total points, 3rd in total yards, 2nd against the pass, and 22nd against the run. They also have some psychopath safety that used to play in Philadelphia or something?
It’s no secret, the Eagles offense has flourished as of late and showed that they can put points on the board in a hurry. I think it’s going to be tough to expect that type of performance out of them on Sunday. Looking at the numbers, it would seem that the Eagles should try to run first against this team. However, we all know how Andy Reid can be. The Broncos don’t give up a whole lot of points, so it would be nice to see the Eagles control the clock and establish nice drives with a solid running game.
All signs point towards this being an epic match up, but I guess we’ll have to wait until Sunday to see for sure.
