How philadelphia Will Try To Win ::
The 3-6 Eagles come into Week 10 having seen their faint playoff hopes all but end after losing a competitive game against a good Chargers team. Nick Sirianni is building an Eagles squad that feels a year or two away from being good. They have a lot of pieces but they are weak on defense (24th in DVOA overall) and need Jalen Hurts to take another step forward. The Eagles have been playing fast (2nd in situational neutral pace) but slowing way down (30th in place when winning) if they’re ahead. The Eagles massive gap in pace means their games have a very different feel depending on game flow.
The Broncos defense has been attackable on the ground (23rd in DVOA), middling through the air (15th in DVOA), and just traded away Von Miller. The Eagles have miraculously held Jalen Hurts to 14/17 attempts in their last two games. At first, it looked like it was because of game flow but it now looks like it was by design. Sirianni seems to believe the best way to win games with Hurts under center is to try and play as Harbaugh did in Lamar Jackson’s early years. That might be his best shot this season but Hurts will have to improve as a passer (much as Jackson did) if this team is going to take the next step. Expect the Eagles to come out playing at warp speed, while attacking with a creative running game where Hurts is essentially a hybrid RB/QB. The Eagles will keep their foot on the gas unless they take a lead, at which point they’ll be happy to fall on the ball.
How denver Will Try To Win ::
The 5-4 Broncos are coming off two straight wins against the NFC East, having knocked off the Football Team and Cowboys. The AFC West is suddenly a very competitive division, with all four teams sitting at five wins. This feels like a game the Broncos must win — at home against a 3-6 team — if they want to be the ones who emerge from the pack. The Broncos play slow (31st situational neutral pace), stay slow when winning (29th in pace when ahead), and barely speed up when losing (24th in pace when trailing). The Broncos move slow no matter what is happening in the game, and play like a team that is desperately trying to hide their QB. Their coaching staff hasn’t seemed to figure out that Bridgewater is more average than bad. This isn’t likely to be the week the light bulb turns on.
The Eagles are attackable through the air (21st in DVOA), as well as on the ground (20th in DVOA), and the Broncos weren’t going to be tilted away from how “they play” anyway. Bridgewater was held under 30 attempts in both Broncos wins the past two weeks. Expect the same approach in this one, as the Broncos coaching staff will be happy to “hide” Bridgewater while trying to win with the ground game and defense.
Likeliest Game Flow ::
This game has a lowish 45 point total, mostly because of how the Broncos want to play. The Broncos will try to suck the air out of this game, and the Eagles will be happy to slow it down if they are ahead, creating a lot of paths to a low-scoring contest. Neither team wants to throw, and there is a realistic chance both teams’ QBs finish below 25 attempts. The one hope for this game showing signs of life is that both defenses are vulnerable, and both offenses have enough weapons to take advantage. The most likely game flow here is both sides run the ball effectively, creating long, time-consuming drives. If a few of those drives end in FGs instead of TDs, this game has paths to go way under.
