Eagles vs Dolphins: Week 13 NFL Picks & Game Predictions
Eagles starting Avonte Maddox, Ronald Darby and cornerbacks Jalen Mills were all out with injuries.
Within their return from injuries, the Eagles have improved on protection. Their absence produced a narrative that the Eagles had a bad secondary which is not true. They had multiple accidents at the cornerback position. That their secondary is wholesome, the results have returned. They have let 17 or fewer points in less than 225 yards passing in 5 consecutive matches and 4 games. With a greater secondary, the Eagles pass rush has appeared improved. Better coverage provides the rushers longer to get to the quarterback, and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is comfortable phoning blitz plays the enhanced protection in the corners. Now that they are healthy, the Philadelphia Eagles more resemble the unit that is effective that is powerful they’ve been in the last couple years.
Quarterback Carson Wentz should also seem more skilled because Eagles receivers Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery will return from injury too. Rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside had been promoted and will find the bulk of the 3 WR formation snaps. The Eagles use their tight ends. Their top pass catcher is tight end Zach Ertz, also Dallas Goedert is also a good alternative to get Wentz when paired up with a linebacker.
Right guard Lane Johnson has also been cleared to play after missing a week’s game. The Eagles missed the good play of Johnson seriously, as losing him appeared to be as losing the group’s left tackle Jason Peters detrimental. Having Johnson rear gives the Eagles equilibrium and more options when choosing their point of attack. As it is the closest the Eagles team has been to fully healthy, the Dolphins defense is in for a battle.
Among the most pressing problems to the Dolphins on offense would be their inability to run the ball. This inability is killing the Dolphins and puts too much stress on the passing game. Their defense to spend time on the area where they are sometimes exploited is forced by the period of possession shortage. I really don’t think it’s a coincidence that the football can’t run and also are fighting to get wins. Miami is averaging 63.2 rushing yards per game, by far the worst in the NFL. It would be the fewest rushing yards per game.
The Dolphins hampered their running game after they traded star left tackle Laremy Tunsil and running Kenyan Drake back away, looking towards the long term. It is painful for fans as the team win and can not execute the basic play in soccer, off the hand while these moves may have been smart to get a team recognizing its need for a complete rebuild.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross ordered that and a rebuild is just what a rebuild looks like. The Dolphins got rid in an attempt to place up themselves to obtain a large number of talent that may come in exactly the time of age. During this period of time, the present gamers are currently attempting to generate a name for themselves by simply putting very good play to play for a role on a different NFL team, or the enhanced Dolphins team, loaded with their draft selections. The problem is the majority of these players just aren’t that great. While some might find roles as particular teams players or copies, the amount of beginning caliber talent on the Dolphins is less compared to other teams in the league, and certainly less than the Philadelphia Eagles. So Dolphins fans hope their team’s leading office can hit these draft picks and make this period of ineptitude.
The Philadelphia Eagles are currently coming back to health and that is a scary proposition for the teams that clutter their remaining schedule, particularly the Miami Dolphins, this week’s competition. The Dolphins had a nice jog and racked up two wins from unsuspecting teams which took them lightly, but that is still. The Eagles will use this as a”get into” match, coming off a tough loss against a skilled Seahawks team that beat them . The Eagles are clinging to their final hope that is a and they can win their division while the Dolphins know their season is finished. I expect to see a completely inspired Philadelphia Eagles team which will appear and conquer an overmatched Dolphins staff and pay for the NFL odds of 9.5 points, Expect a double digit blowout individuals, my NFL choice is the Philadelphia Eagles -9.5.
