The Philadelphia Eagles rookies will shine bright in Week 17.

1. Jalen Reagor will finally have a 100-yard game.

Philly fans over the past few weeks have finally started to see the Eagles utilize Jalen Reagor properly. The rookie wide receiver has had a few exciting plays, but the overall product has been just short of a disappointment. The first-round draft pick has seemed to have a chip on his shoulder though, and this could be the game to prove why he was the right choice for this franchise.

With every other rookie in the NFL from Reagor’s draft class contributing in a big way to their teams, it’s long past time for Reagor to have a breakout game. He has had a good connection so far with quarterback Jalen Hurts, and hopefully, that continues in Week 17.

2. Jalen Hurts will shred the Football Teams’ defense.

The WFT defensive front is a powerful one, filled with first-round draft selections; however, their secondary has struggled against speed receivers and elusive quarterbacks. The fact that the Eagles don’t have anything hanging over them for this game should allow them to play pressure-free football and let the rookie signal-caller loose to do his thing.

Jalen Hurts already had back-to-back 400-yard games, and another one will, more than likely, be on its way. He’s being evaluated every game. He’s also hoping to hold on to the starting quarterback job, so fans can expect that he won’t just lie down.

If running back Miles Sanders is good to go, this could be another big game for Hurts to use his legs. He has shown the ability to run and that he is not afraid to let the ball rip when the pocket is closing.
