Undefeated Green Bay Packers hope to remain undefeated at Lambeau Field next Thursday Night (Sept 26th, 2019). On the flip side, the Eagles are trying to improve their current record of only 1 win over the past 3 games, with both heartbreaking losses happened in back to back games.
The Packers have vastly, say that again, have VASTLY improved their defense which has led to their success this year. Their offense still has a lot to figure out: Aaron Rodgers has been playing average football at best, and the team is only 2 – 9 on third downs (30th on the league), nevertheless, they manage to squeeze the win.
The Packers defense is holding opponents to just 11.7 points per game, and this is bad news for Philadelphia, whose offense has been sloppy this year. To their defense, they have suffered from “lack of weapons” due to injuries, both Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson have not been playing.
Interesting historical notes for you:
- The Packers are 0-4 ATS during the month of September.
- The Eagles are 0-6 ATS during the month of September.
Beyond past history, at this moment, the Green Bay Packers are the superior team. The Packers defensive unit will pressure Carson Wentz all night long.
Take Green Bay -4.
