Expert Predictions for Week 9 NFL – The Athletic
Time to worry about the Charger? Probably. Consecutive losses put Los Angeles in 4-3 place for the year. Justin Herbert there was another pedestrian game, which ended with 223 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. The second was returned for a touchdown that gave it the lead in a 27-24 aggregate loss to the Patriots. Los Angeles converted only four of the 12 down to third and ran 10 times in New England territory in the final 30 minutes. The defense was also not much better, as its inability to stop the run from continuing was an ongoing problem. Perhaps Philadelphia’s similar struggles require a larger dose Austin Ekeler this week? Whatever the game plan, the Chargers have shown more consistency than the Eagles this year and are still considered 3-point line favorites.
Philadelphia was the biggest winner last week, beating Detroit with a score of 44-6. For the first time in weeks, the Eagles look solid on both sides of the ball. The ground match is breach-paced with the season’s fastest 236 yards while Boston Scott and Jordan Howard each hit pays dirty money twice. As for defence, Philadelphia has a 228-yard low on the season with just 57 appearances. Beating Detroit doesn’t add much value right now, but it’s the kind of victory that helps young people build confidence. Sunday will be the eighth time the Eagles have played as an underdog this year, and they are currently losing 3-4 in that situation.
