The Philadelphia Eagles are an odd team. On paper, they aren’t that great, as they tie for giving up the third most yards per rush and are middle of the road when it comes to yards allowed per pass.
However, those numbers are quite misleading, as the Eagles tighten up in a big way when it comes to the red zone. They have only allowed 8 offensive touchdowns through 6 weeks of the NFL season but also have 8 takeaways to make that even scarier .
When you combine that with an efficient offense that doesn’t turn the ball over often (only two times so far this year) with this tough young defense, you have a formidable team that looks to grind their opponents into submission while bending, but not breaking.
If that sounds familiar, that’s because it’s very similar to what the Minnesota Vikings do on a weekly basis.
Don’t miss the Minnesota Vikings taking on the Philadelphia Eagles at noon central time on Sunday, October 23, 2016. This could be a matchup of two similar styled teams which could be very competitive.
