Forecast: Mostly cloudy. A chance of rain after midnight.
Aaron Rodgers said earlier this week he believes the Packers are good enough to win their remainingl six games. He has five TD passes and two INTs at home. Rookie Wendell Smallwood and fourth-stringer Kenjon Barner would be have to lead the rushing attack if Mathews is out.
After Cincinnati, the Eagles finish with the Redskins home, at Baltimore, then the Giants and Cowboys at the Linc. Other than Jordan Matthews, the Eagles receivers have struggled. Wentz can't get into a rhythm and throws two interceptions.
Miami won even though Jay Ajayi had trouble finding running room behind an offensive line missing three starters. In addition to praising Rodgers, he pointed to the quarterback's strong connection with receiver Jordy Nelson as a point of concern for Phily's defense.
The problem, however, might not be on Rodgers' side of the ball. He enters Monday's game with 53 receptions for 663 yards - Adams has the exact same numbers - with a team-high nine TDs.
Trailing 17-16 with 5:04 left and the ball on the Patriots 17, Brady led an efficient drive by completing six passes to drive New England down the field.
Philadelphia faced another mobile quarterback in the Seahawks' Russell Wilson last week, but Cox think Rodgers is more hard to defend because of his quick release and accuracy. The last time Philadelphia defeated the Packers was in 2013.
The game is likely to be the most important game of Carson's rookie season in my eyes. The Packers, meanwhile, are only 1-4 on the road this year. Philadelphia is 5-1 SU and ATS in its last six appearances on Monday Night Football. "We've got to turn this streak around and get going back in the right direction". Agholor could be benched because of a loss of confidence. They've been particularly bad defending tight ends, according to Alex Smith of the Eagles.
Packers: Injuries have taken a toll on the lineup. Running back Eddie Lacy and cornerback Sam Shields are out for the season.
Starting guard T.J. Lang (ankle) is out.
Rest assured Rodgers knows the overtime rule. Nelson and Adams are a risky tandem. We've just got to get together a game where we're more consistent from the first snap to the last.
Sure, the coach can fire any of his assistants and the G.M. can fire the coach and the CEO can fire the G.M. and the executive committee can fire the CEO and the board of directors can supplant the executive committee, but those powers take a back seat to corporate politics that become much harder to navigate when there isn't one person who can say without fear of resentment or repercussion or revenge that change is happening. The defense is hemorrhaging big plays and surrendering an average of 38.3 points over the past four games.
Rodgers has played better in recent weeks, but some of those issues remain.
"Obviously, we're not where we want to be", Rodney McLeod said. They have allowed 89 points in the past two games. Blake Martinez said this week he has a sprained MCL.
Their last seven opponents have a winning record, and only two of their last 13 opponents - the Packers Monday and the Bengals next Sunday in Cincinnati - have losing records. Four cornerbacks are nursing injuries. At OLB, assuming Matthews moves inside, are Nick Perry (7 sacks) and veteran Julius Peppers (4.5).
Perhaps linebacker Clay Matthews' analysis was most accurate.
Players typically deny looking at the standings and the teams ahead of them in the playoff chase.
