5. What can be expected from the Philadelphia Eagles’ offense?

The Eagles have found a diamond in the rough with wide receiver Travis Fulgham at the ‘X’ (primary) position. The young receiver has quickly made a name for himself and was a joy to watch in Week 5. The Eagles have not been able to count on their veteran receivers, and as of now, no word has been given that Alshon Jeffery or DeSean Jackson will be able to play any time soon. That means that the ‘Birds’ are going to have to depend on the young guys.

So what can Philly’s fans expect to see? Though the Ravens secondary is solid, the absence of someone like former safety Earl Thomas has left some noticeable holes in the middle of the field. Expect to see some deeper shots taken from Wentz. Fans may even see Fulgham double-covered. If two defensive backs are assigned to Fulgham, it will allow Zach Ertz (remember that guy?) to finally see some consistent one-on-one matchups. Might we see Miles Sanders and/or John Hightower given some room to work the middle on slants?

The Eagles’ offense also needs to win the time of possession battle. As stated earlier, the Ravens will do what they can to avoid putting Lamar Jackson in a shootout, so if Philly wants their offense on the field more, this offensive line needs to use its size to create holes for Sanders to run through.

Fans may also see an increased role from second-string quarterback Jalen Hurts. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that he will give the Ravens a taste of their own medicine. As we all know, hope isn’t enough to win games. The Eagles will need every single player and every single coach to perform at the maximum level if they hope to score an upset victory.
