Patrick Mahomes was held to 177 yards passing on 43 dropbacks in Week 11.

Let's say you had the foresight to know Patrick Mahomes would attempt 43 passes in Week 11 versus our Eagles. Let's also pretend you didn't know the outcome of the game. We doubt that most of you would have taken the under on a 200-yard-passing threshold for the reigning MVP.

Who would have thunk... Mahomes attempted 43 passes, and the Eagles limited him to 177 yards through the air.

Let's hope Philly's secondary has another impressive showing versus Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen in Week 12.

Verdict: Let Sean Desai cook. The Eagles defense just needs to keep doing what it's doing.

The Buffalo Bills have allowed 1,215 yards passing and 110.5 rushing yards per game.

The Buffalo Bills have allowed 1,215 yards rushing so far this season. They aren't quite a middle-of-the-pack team in that category. Ahead of Week 12's action, 20 teams have allowed more.

They also give up 110.5 rushing yards per game. They are a middle-of-the-pack team in terms of rushing yards allowed per game. 15 NFL teams are doing a better job there.

Verdict: Following an impressive showing by the Eagles on the ground in Week 11, they would be wise to continue attacking with their rushing attack at home versus Buffalo.
