Current Records: Baltimore 4-1; Philadelphia 1-3-1
What to know
The Philadelphia Eagles fans better hope that the team will play a great game on Sunday, as the odds are definitely against them. They will face the Baltimore Ravens at home at 1 p.m. ET. The Eagles hope to continue their now four-game streak, scoring more points each game than the last.
Philadelphia was hampered by 84 penalty yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. Philadelphia fell 38-29 to Pittsburgh. A silver lining for Philadelphia was RB Miles Sanders, who hit two hasty touchdowns. Sanders placed himself on the highlight role with a 74-yard TD through the middle of the first quarter. Sanders’ sharp performance kept his single-game rush touchdown high for the season.
A well-balanced attack led Baltimore each quarter over the Cincinnati Bengals on their way to victory last week. The Ravens were the clear winners by a margin of 27-3 over Cincinnati. The match-up was nearly completed at the end of the third, at which point Baltimore had gained an advantage of 20 to nothing. No one had a standout game for Baltimore offensively, but they got scores from TE Mark Andrews and WR Marquise Brown. Jackson has now produced at least one touchdown in the past five games.
Baltimore’s defense was in place, keeping Cincinnati at a meager 205 yards. The defense embarrassed the Bengals’ line of attack to fire QB Joe Burrow seven times for a 48-yard loss. It was a group effort with seven picking up a bag each.
The Eagles are now 1-3-1 while the Ravens are 4-1. A few stats to keep an eye out for: Philadelphia is the worst in the league in terms of interceptions, with seven in the season. To make matters worse for Philadelphia, Baltimore ranks second in the NFL when it comes to forced fumbles, after having caused six in the season.
