The Philadelphia Eagles ultimately lost in Week 16 as Jalen Hurts saw the game on the sidelines against the Dallas Cowboys. They go into this weekend game with a huge target on their forehead but there are some doubts on how they will manage this matchup. As of the moment, their 3 best offensive options are in the doubt list for this bout, and that will definitely put them a notchback. Nevertheless, the Eagles are sitting comfortable with a 13-2 record, right on the top of the entire NFC division. Thankfully for the franchise, their defensive side is completely healthy, and backup QB Gardner Minshew is capable of pushing the game into a win. Philadelphia can technically clinch a home field advantage thanks to seeding throughout the NFC Playoffs if they manage to win this game. Thus there is definitely some motivation for the Eagles to push themselves into one more victory.
This game will be decided by the fact that Minshew is expected to play at QB for the Eagles. The reason for this is Jalen Hurts is expected to miss at least 1 more week due to a shoulder injury. On top of that, the Eagles released their first official injury list for this game. This list showcased their 4 players as “did not participate:” Hurts, Lane Johnson, Avonte Maddox, and Miles Sanders. Philadelphia then also listed 2 players as “limited participation:” AJ Brown and Jordan Davis.
On the other side of the field, the Saints are relatively healthy player wise. They have also won their last 2 bouts and are technically still in contention for a playoff spot. New Orleans are right behind the NFC’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers by just a single game. They will give everything they have to win this matchup.
Nevertheless, we believe the Eagles will take the win.
