The Eagles rushing defense must regain its mojo.

The Eagles have had one of the better rushing defenses in 2023 for the most part. They entered Week 16 ranked seventh versus the run (1322 yards allowed), but in recent weeks, they have been unreliable.

MVP candidate Christian McCaffrey showed off his skills against the Eagles with 93 yards and a rushing touchdown on the ground during the 49ers' demolition of Philly. San Francisco finished with 146 rushing yards in the contest.

Four Cowboys combined for 138 yards on the ground one week later. Most recently, Seattle tallied 100 rushing yards against Philadelphia. Kenneth Walker III racked up 86 of those yards, and he also scored a touchdown.

Two of the Eagles' final three games are against Giants star Saquon Barkley. He has eclipsed 83 yards rushing in three of his last six games.
