The Eagles look to get back on track in prime time, and we believe they will.

Reasonable request: A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith both eclipse 100 yards receiving.

The Seahawks' defense has given up 30 points or more five times in their first 13 games this season. They have given up 20 points or more seven times this season. Here's what that means. The Eagles will have opportunities to make big plays on offense. Again... We're looking for 28 points or more.

Head coach Nick Sirianni put you on notice during a press conference earlier this week. The passing game runs through A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Dallas Goedert. Look for Philly to look to their playmakers for big plays. Expect the Eagles offense to bounce back thanks to nic games by their wide receiver duo.

Bold prediction: Eagles limit the Seahawks attack to 275 yards or fewer.

Truthfully, even before the decision to take the play calling duties away from Sean Desai, we expected a nice showing from the defense. Darius Slay is out for this one. So is Zach Cunningham, but even without two key pieces on the defensive side of the ball, this is what you would refer to as a potential 'get right game'.

Seattle has their fair share of offensive weapons, but something tells us the Birds are going to be ready.
