10. Does anyone realize that Matthew Stafford is 3-1 versus the Eagles?
Prior to the arrival of Matthew Stafford in 2009, the Eagles were 2-9-1 versus Detroit in the Super Bowl era (the NFL has to get rid of ties). Stafford’s 3-1 versus Philly in his last four games.
Now, some of that has been overblown. There was a turnover that should have been ruled as a dead ball that led to a go-ahead score in 2016, and neither of these teams looks like the same teams that were on the field when these two last met.
Sure, there are a few exceptions (Carson Wentz, Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, Malcolm Jenkins and Doug Pederson for instance), but when it’s all said and done, this just turns out to be a really interesting stat. It isn’t much more than that. This is a game the Eagles should win.
