Jalen Hurts

Anytime Touchdown (+100)

Not too long ago, Philly appeared to be on a beeline toward the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The Eagles entered their Week 13 matchup against San Francisco boasting a record of 10-1, which was the best record in the division and conference by a two-game margin at the time.

The tables have turned on them quickly over the last few weeks as the Eagles enter this week’s matchup following back-to-back blowout losses – one in a road rematch against the Cowboys and the other in a home game against the 49ers.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has seen his numbers tumble during Philly’s struggles. However, the Eagles' overall success level usually doesn’t have much of an effect on his ability to score touchdowns via the Tush Push. Hurts has found the end zone on the ground in seven of his last nine games, and nine of 13 on the season overall.

Last week against Dallas was the first time Hurts failed to score a rushing touchdown since Oct. 29, snapping a streak that saw him rush for six touchdowns over a four-game stretch. 

I think we’ll see Hurts get back into the end zone in a matchup against a Seattle defense that ranks 29th in rushing touchdowns allowed per game.

Pick: Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown (+100)

DK Metcalf

Over 60.5 Receiving Yards (-110)

The biggest difference between last year’s Eagles team and this year’s Eagles team has been their defensive play, and it’s only getting worse for the current iteration of the Birds as top CB Darius Slay is set to miss time after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

Philadelphia ranked in the top eight in scoring on both sides of the ball last season — this year’s team wields nowhere near that impressive level of balance. The Eagles offense has continued to pull its weight as they rank seventh in points scored per game. But when you combine that with a defense that ranks 28th in scoring, Philly is far less dangerous than the team that reached last year’s Super Bowl.

Over the last few weeks, the most noticeable flaw in the Eagles defense has been their inability to contain big, physical pass-catchers in the open field – and that was with Slay. Dalton Kincaid and Gabe Davis combined for 143 receiving yards on 11 catches against Philly three weeks ago. Deebo Samuel and George Kittle shredded them for 184 yards on nine catches two weeks ago. Jake Ferguson and Tony Pollard had 109 yards on 12 catches last week. So, who’s next?

Without Slay on the field to anchor Philly’s secondary, this has the makings of a great spot for one of the biggest and most physical wide receivers in the league in DK Metcalf, who’s tallied 65-plus receiving yards in five of his last eight games.

At face value, Metcalf has fallen short of 55 receiving yards in two of his last three outings. But it’s important to take into account that both of those performances came in tough divisional matchups against San Francisco.

Pick: DK Metcalf Over 60.5 Receiving Yards | Bet to 63.5

D'Andre Swift

Over 58.5 Rushing Yards (-110)

In the grand scheme of things, I hate making excuses for teams based on strength of schedule. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that the Eagles have played the toughest schedule in the league thus far, and the level of difficulty has been sky high of late. 

Six of Philly's last seven games have come against a gauntlet of Miami, Kansas City, Buffalo, San Francisco and Dallas (twice) – and it still managed to win four of those contests. Sure, the Eagles got stomped in their last two, but the 49ers blow out pretty much everybody they face (when healthy) while the loss to the Cowboys reeked of weird turnover luck and officiating. 

As a result of their struggles, the Eagles have found themselves trying to play catch-up with pass-heavy game scripts, which has negatively impacted D'Andre Swift's numbers. Swift carried the ball six times for 13 yards against San Francisco and he had 11 carries for 39 yards against Dallas.

When the Eagles offense hums, Swift is usually a huge part of their success. Prior to Philly’s two-game skid, Swift rushed for 56-plus rushing yards in eight of 10 games and cleared the 75-yard mark on the ground in four of those contests.

I believe we’ll see Swift bounce back against a Seattle defensive front that ranks 23rd in rushing yards allowed per game and 29th in yards allowed per carry.

Pick: D'Andre Swift Over 58.5 Rushing Yards (-110)
