Philadelphia Eagles: 5 Players that are key to a victory over Jacksonville
Which five Philadelphia Eagles players are key to a victory across the pond against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week?
Game time is much closer than usual this week, as the Philadelphia Eagles are set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars for an early one this Sunday. A few days ago, both teams traveled across the pond to get to London, where the Eagles will play in the NFL’s International Series for the first time since it has started.
The Jaguars, on the other hand, are very used to this. In fact, they are usual suspects to play in London every year. But that doesn’t mean that they are the popular team in town this week. Per usual, Eagles fans are preparing for a takeover in London as majority of the fan base flocked over there earlier this week. It will take a lot more than favorable crowd noise to win this one, though. That’s for sure.
The Eagles are coming off of what could be their toughest loss all season. After they were shutting out the Carolina Panthers for most of last week’s game at home, they allowed 21 unanswered points go through as the Eagles took yet, another loss on the season.
Although they are only one game back from being on top of the NFC East, they are beginning to reach desperation mode and week eight becomes a must-win situation for the Birds. What better way to head into the bye week with a major victory in London? In order to stay relevant in the playoff picture, which Philadelphia Eagles need to go above and beyond on Sunday?
