Week 12 of the NFL regular season couldn’t have gotten off to a more explosive start than it did on Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, we’ll have to endure 11 more games until we arrive at the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers matchup on Sunday Night Football. This one is scheduled for an 8:20 p.m. EST kickoff.
Truthfully, that isn’t that long from now. Still, for whatever reason, after watching Philadelphia come from behind in the fourth quarter to vanquish a stubborn Indianapolis Colts team, it feels like this has been the longest week, even if most of us were given a much-needed day off on Thursday.
FanDuel favors the Eagles by 6.5 points. That line has been pretty steady all week. The OVER/UNDER is set at 46.5 points. Here are a few of the more intriguing player props that will hopefully usher you to the winner’s circle alongside your beloved Birds.
Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown Anytime TD Scorer (-125)
We won’t call it struggling, but for an NFL star with A.J. Brown‘s ability, six catches and 67 yards receiving definitely qualifies as a mini-slump. He appeared on Thursday’s injury report with an ‘illness’ but is expected to play on Sunday night. We expect him to play well.
How many yards he’ll add to his 2022 resume is arguable, but we expect a bounceback game and for him to reach the end zone at some point.
Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Alternate Passing Yards: Over 200 (-250)
The Eagles’ offensive attack looked anemic for the first 45 minutes of game action in Week 11 before they caught fire late and scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
This time around, the hope is we’ll see a more consistent performance. Green Bay’s secondary will give Philly a few opportunities, and we believe the offense will cash in when those moments present themselves. 200+ yards passing sounds like a safe bet for QB1.
Eagles tight end Jack Stoll Receiving Yards: Over 11.5 (-114)
Dallas Goedert‘s absence in Week 11 seemingly gave Jalen Hurts minimal options across the middle of the field for much of the contest, especially seeing as how Philly tends to spam a handful of routes that keep DeVonta Smith operating somewhere between the hash marks and the sideline.
Perhaps Jack Stoll sees a few more passes thrown in his direction?
The six-foot-four, 247-pounder is never going to be a huge part of Philadelphia’s passing attack as a receiver. He’s been targeted eight times on the season, but necessity is the mother of invention.
It feels like, at some point, he’ll shake loose in Week 12. He’s met or exceeded 11 yards receiving three times in 2022, and something tells us he’ll come up big at some point in this one.
