We have reached week three of the NFL season and in this game it’s a matchup between two teams who have a 1-1 record. The Indianapolis Colts make the trip to Lincoln Financial Field to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles have won the last four games played between the two teams.
The Indianapolis Colts had a disappointing loss to start the season with the defense having a bad outing against the Bengals giving up 34 points.
In the second game they took on the Washington Redskins and the defense was much improved giving up only nine points and it led to a victory.
Andrew Luck seems to be getting more comfortable in the pocket but he still seems to be making some questionable decisions and that resulted in two interceptions against the Redskins.
The Colts are using a running back by committee and it seems to be working for the most part so far. Against the Redskins Wilkins and Mack both had ten rushes with Wilkins rushing for over 60 yards while Mack only had 34.
In this game it’s going to come down to what defense decides to show up for the Colts. Will it be the team who let Andy Dalton light them up or will it be the defense who slowed down Alex Smith.
If they can get pressure on Carson Wentz and get him uncomfortable in the pocket they have a good enough quarterback to pull the upset.
On the other side of this matchup is the Philadelphia Eagles who have announced that Carson Wentz will be getting the start in this game so that will be the big storyline going into this game.
He is coming back off a bad ACL injury and it will be interesting to watch how well he will take the first sack and if he will get happy feet in the pocket.
The Eagles come into this game with a 1-1 record and against the Buccaneers the defense struggled against the deep ball and the offense didn’t look comfortable.
The Eagles are hoping the change from Nick Foles to Carson Wentz will help the offense with the struggles they have had in the first couple of weeks.
In this game it’s all going to come down to how well Wentz plays. There is no question he will be nervous and how he responds to the pressure will be the difference.
I would expect the Colts to put a lot of pressure on Wentz and how he plays will decide 100 percent how this game plays out.
