Philadelphia Eagles have interesting matchup history, vs the Denver Broncos

The Philadelphia Eagles face the Denver Broncos in Week 10 for only the 14th meeting between the two teams in their histories. The Eagles hold an 8-5 record in the series, and they’ve won two of the last three contests.

One common denominator that jumps out at you right away is there is never a shortage of points when these two teams play. They’ve combined for 620 points in their matchup history. Denver has scored more often. They own a 319-301 edge, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone to see that trend continue.

In their last two wins over the Broncos, Birds quarterbacks were a key factor in why the team earned the victory. Carson Wentz threw for 199 yards and four touchdowns in 2017.  In 2009, Donovan McNabb threw for 322 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception.  If history repeats itself, we could see a big day for Jalen Hurts in the Mile High City.

The defense needs to bring the pressure in this game. That has also worked in past. In their last two wins against Denver, the Philly defense has collected a combined six sacks and three interceptions.

Every fan knows, if a team can force turnovers, there’s a pretty good chance that they take that win. The Eagles’ defense has to be aggressive and create extra opportunities for the offense as this Broncos team has to feel pretty good about themselves after beating the Dallas Cowboys.

Here are three more keys to a victory.
