It’s do-or-die for the Philadelphia Eagles this week against the Houston Texans. Which players are key to a victory?
Ever since last week, it’s been do-or-die for the Philadelphia Eagles. Lose a game, and the season officially amounts to nothing but a ton of injuries and a failed attempt at a repeat. Win, and stay alive while moving on to the next mission. Last week, the Eagles shocked the world and took care of the Los Angeles Rams on the road. This week, they return home to host the Houston Texans.
Once again, the Eagles aren’t exactly playing some scrubs this week. While the AFC has had some dark horses arise in their playoff picture, the Houston Texans were expected to be contenders and they definitley delivered this season. But just because Houston will make the playoffs this year, doesn’t make them any less beatable. The Eagles could, and should, defeat Houston at home.
Unfortunatley, the Eagles haven’t been as dominant at home in 2018, but none of that matters this week. The home field advantage should be in full effect. With the season on the line, the crowd should be feeling it and getting loud, making it very difficult for the visitors. This game won’t be up to the crowd though. Hopefully, the Eagles feed off of the energy and get A-Plus performances from the team as a whole. Who is going to have to lead the charge though?
