The Philadelphia Eagles will travel to Green Bay for Thursday Night Football. Which players are to a victory against the Packers?

Just a few days ago, the Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up week three with a disappointing loss against the Detroit Lions at home. As the team was set to make a statement after failing to come back against the Atlanta Falcons on the road, Philly came up short once again.

They dropped the ball — pun intended. At this point, many thought the Eagles would be 3-0. With a couple of key injuries and some critical mistakes, the Birds are now holding a 1-2 overall record, with two losses coming within the conference.

Well, conference play continues on Thursday night, and the road doesn’t get any easier. With only a couple of days to recover, the Eagles are set to face their toughest opponent to date in the undefeated Green Bay Packers. While it’s still early in the season, many claim the Eagles’ Thursday night battle is a must-win for Philly on the road.

Is the season over if they fall to 1-3? Not exactly. But the Eagles will be thrown in a deep hole early on that will be extremely tough for them to climb out of. So with Thursday being a must-win matchup for the Eagles, which five players are key to a Week 4 victory?
