Believe it or not, this Philadelphia Eagles defense can limit the Ravens.

It’s not an understatement that the Philadelphia Eagles have struggled mightily this season, both on offense and defense. That’s part of the reason why they are heavy underdogs in their Week 6 matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens.

Sure, it looks like a challenge, especially when you compare the divisions that both of these teams play in. The four teams in the NFC East (or ‘NFC Least’ as some have dubbed them) have four combined wins between them. By comparison, the four teams in the AFC North have combined for 13.

Despite that (and so many other things that suggest that this game won’t be pretty), the Eagles do actually have a chance in this game, and Philly’s defense has the ingredients to slow down or maybe even stop the high-flying Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ offense. No seriously. It’s true. Here’s the blueprint to a Week 6 win for the ‘Birds’ who will be playing in front of about 6,000 fans or so.
