Post 3 reasons why the Philadelphia Eagles will lose to the Tenne
However , there are also quite a few reasons to be optimistic. Brandon Gowton, the smartest man on the internet and manager of Bleeding Green Nation, gives us his 3 reasons that the Eagles will lose to the Titans on Sunday.THREE REASONS WHY THE EAGLES WILL LOSE:1) Jim Schwartz’s defense struggles on the roadPhiladelphia’s defense plays very well at the home. Since the beginning of the 2016 season, the Eagles have allowed just 13.8 points per game when playing at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles are 17-3 in that stretch. Playing on the road has been a different story for Schwartz’s unit, however. In that same time frame, the Eagles are allowing 24.3 points per game in away matchups. They’re 7-10 in those contests. The Eagles obviously don’t have the same crowd noise advantage to help their pass rush in road games. That’s a bit of a concern going up a Titans offensive line that’s allowed the fewest quarterback hits through Week 3. Philly’s defense is very reliant on getting to the quarterback. It’s something they’re typically very good at doing considering they lead the NFL in pressures generated. But Marcus Mariota’s mobility presents the Eagles with a challenge they won’t face on most weeks. His ability to avoid pressure and take off running should be a concern for the Eagles. Since 2017, the Eagles have surrendered 282 rushing yards (6.6 yards per rush attempt) and one touchdown to mobile quarterbacks. 33 of those yards came on a run by Andrew Luck last weekend. 2) Carson Wentz might continue to be rustyWentz showed plenty of encouraging signs in his return to the field last week. But he also showed a lot of mental rust. Wentz threw an interception when he stared down Zach Ertz. He got the ball out late a little too often which caused some sacks and incompletions. I have complete confidence Wentz will improve over the course of this season. But it might take him more than just one game before he’s completely shaken the rust off. While I don’t think the Titans’ defense is a juggernaut just yet , the unit has performed well under new head coach Mike Vrabel and veteran defensive coordinator Dean Pees. Tennessee’s defensive line ranks 10th in pressures generated, per Pro Football Focus. The defense obviously did a great job of shutting down Blake Bortles, who had played well in Week 2, on the road last Sunday. The Titans might be able to stifle Wentz at times. It doesn’t help the Eagles that they’re still missing some skill players (Darren Sproles, Mike Wallace, and maybe more). 3) Special teams could be a factorThe Titans rank fourth overall in special teams DVOA while the Eagles check in at 29th. Tennessee is averaging 10.3 yards on punt returns and they’ve returned one kickoff for a touchdown. The Eagles, meanwhile , are averaging just 4.2 yards per punt return and 19 yards per kick return. Last week, the Eagles used Corey Clement at punt returner in place of Darren Sproles and he muffed multiple return attempts. Perhaps the wet and rainy conditions were to blame but it’s not like he has a ton of returner experience so that’s something to keep an eye on. If this turns out to be an ugly game, a special teams mistake could make all the difference.On the Titans defense winning day 1 of training camp Yesterday all of the reports out of St. Thomas Sports Park were about how the defense won the day. I am sure you saw the video 1,000 times, where Maclolm Butler jumps the route against Corey Davis, picks the ball off, and punts it in the air (of course remember that Davis got Butler for 2 touchdowns in the playoffs last year). There were also interceptions by Logan Ryan and Dane Cruikshank.There are a couple of things you need to keep in mind:The Titans’ defensive scheme this year is much more similar to the Titans’ defensive scheme last year than this year’s offensive scheme vs. last year’s offensive scheme. That’s a good thing because the Titans defense was pretty good last year and the offense was , well the offense was led by Terry Robiskie.With that being the case, it makes sense that the defense would be ahead of the offense. It is also a pretty normal thing around the NFL for the defense to win early in camp. I bet if you toured around the other 31 NFL SB Nation blogs, you would read a lot of posts about the defense winning the first day of training camp.This offense is new to pretty much everyone on that side of the ball. You have the offensive line switching from power-blocking scheme to a zone-blocking scheme (not to mention missing their formal All-Pro right tackle and practicing yesterday in the team periods without their Pro Bowl left tackle). In addition to that, if you have listened to Dan Orlovsky* at all, he has said that things will look bad for the offense early in camp. They break everything down to build it up, but he said there will be a day where it clicks and then you will see it take off. That probably won’t come until sometime in the middle of the preseason.So all of that to say, keep the faith! Anyone who has watched Marcus Mariota play over the first 3 years of his career know that the sky is the limit for him. He just needs to be in a system that plays to his strengths. He finally has that Womens Derrick Henry Jersey , and it is going to be really fun to watch!*You really should be listening to Orlovsky (You can follow him here). He is a rising star in the analyst field, and was with Matt LaFleur with the Rams last summer in training camp. You aren’t going to find anyone that knows more about this offense in the media than Dan.
