Okay Philadelphia Eagles fans, let’s talk about the outcome.
3. Jalen Hurts will throw for over 200 yards and run for 100 more.
This may not be a bold prediction in some of your minds, considering Jalen Hurts ran for 36 yards and threw for over 100 yards in a quarter and a half, but if Hurts produces this type of stat line in Week 14, the Eagles’ chances of winning will increase heavily.
The Saints have not faced a mobile quarterback like Hurts so far this season, so it will be interesting to see how Doug Pederson will utilize his rookie quarterback.
4. Despite the hype, the Philadelphia Eagles will lose in Week 14.
Fans may be saying to themselves that another Eagles loss isn’t the outcome they want to imagine. They’d be correct to feel that way, but let’s put some context to this prediction. The Eagles have a huge advantage over the Saints simply because there isn’t a ton of game film that the Saints can use to study.
The Eagles will have an opportunity to strike quickly if they can execute the game plan. The Saints will have a hard time covering all of the moving pieces that the Birds can throw at them on a wide variety of plays, so ultimately, this game could come down to a game-winning field goal. If it does, that means the Eagles played their butts off, and that alone should bring some life back into a starving fan base. Final score: Saints, 34 Eagles, 31
