The Philadelphia quarterback has received a lot of criticism this season. This is true. Carson Wentz has just 16 touchdowns and 15 steals in 13 weeks. Overall, the team only averaged 21.1 points per match. And only 3 NFL teams are worse than Philadelphia by a yard. It is clear that with such an offensive play it is impossible to count on stable results. The Eagles have only 3 wins in 12 matches and there are very few chances, despite the weakness of the NFC East division, to compete for the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Washington has practically nothing to oppose to opponents in the opening game. The team makes two matches only 37.5 yards. In fact, the Redskins don’t have any worthwhile runningback, and the lane doesn’t do the outbound very well. At the same time, the team looks not so bad in the passing game. In particular, with quarterback Keyes Kinum, the club is in ninth place in the league in terms of points scored. The Eagles, in turn, are not very good precisely at the stage of confrontation with a pass already made by the opponent’s quarterback.
