Packers vs. Eagles preview:
What is wrong in Green Bay? Even when Aaron Rodgers has a solid game, the Packers still can't seem to get the ball rolling. Green Bay has lost four games in a row after a 4-2 start and are in trouble of missing out on the playoffs. The Packers got trounced by Washington and made Kirk Cousins look like Peyton Manning. They need to fix something quickly.
Philadelphia found a big win over the Atlanta Falcons, but then had to play the Seahawks. Seattle is rolling and the Eagles became the Seahawks latest victim. Once 3-0 with a huge win over the Steelers, the Eagles have come crashing down to Earth and now sit in last place in the NFC East.
The Packers and Eagles have played 43 times in history, with the Packers holding a 26-14 advantage in the regular season. The Eagles have a 2-1 advantage in the playoffs.
Packers vs. Eagles prediction:
This is a tough call. Both teams need a win to get back into the playoff conversation.
The Eagles defense is far and away better than the Packers, but Green Bay has Aaron Rodgers. At some point he is going to take over a game and win. And that day will come Monday when the Packers beat the Eagles.
