Jaguars Vs Eagles Week 8

Up next for Week 8 we have Jaguars Vs Eagles. For the third consecutive week. The NFL will play a game in London, England. This time around, the Jacksonville Jaguars will take on the Philadelphia Eagles. This is in a battle of teams that have underachieved this season. The game will be played on Sunday, October 28 at Wembley Stadium. Also, it is scheduled to begin at 9:30 AM. ET.

The Eagles came into the season hoping to win the Super Bowl in consecutive years. However, they haven’t looked anything like the team that won the championship last season. After snapping a two-game losing streak with a win over the New York Giants. The Eagles fell to the Carolina Panthers in their last game and will try to rebound from the loss with a win over Jacksonville.

Philadelphia’s defense continues to play well. They held opponents to 19.7 points per game. Which is sixth in the league. However, their offense, which was one of the best in the league last season, hasn’t played as well this season, averaging 22 points per game, which is 22nd in the league.
One of the reasons the Eagles have struggled offensively is injuries to their running backs.

Darren Sproles is dealing with a hamstring injury that has kept him out of the last six games, while Jay Ajayi is out for the season after suffering a back injury. With LeGarrette Blount leaving for Detroit in the offseason, the Eagles don’t have an experienced running back on their roster, which has forced the team to rely on Carson Wentz more than they would like to.

If the Eagles can run the ball effectively, they will be able to get the win over the Jaguars.

Week 8 Jaguars Vs Eagles

The Jaguars were expected to contend for the Super Bowl this season. After seven games, they are 3-4 and don’t seem to be on the same page. The Jaguars have lost three straight games and they will be trying to avoid losing their fourth consecutive game when they face the Eagles on Sunday.

Jacksonville’s defense, which is supposed to be one of the best in the league, has given up 90 points in their last three games. They will need to bounce back against an Eagles team that is also struggling if they want to have a chance to win this game.

The Jaguars have also struggled offensively. Most of which is due to the fact that they currently don’t have a running game and have an offense that was built around the run. With Leonard Fournette sidelined with an injury. The team traded for Carlos Hyde, who they hope can help their running game.

Blake Bortles was benched in the second half of their loss to the Houston Texans. However, he will likely get the start on Sunday. If he avoids turning the ball over, the Jaguars should be in good shape. What does this mean for the Jags?

In conclusion for Week 8 NFL Jaguars vs Eagles. The Eagles are favored to win this game by three points. The over/under on total points scored is 41.
The Eagles are playing better than the Jaguars right now and should be able to take advantage of Jacksonville’s struggling defense. Take Philadelphia -3.
