THE TEAM NEWS

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

  • Philadelphia suffered defeat to Detroit on Sunday as the Eagles' injury-hit side were incapable of hanging on to a first-quarter lead and now they must head to Green Bay to face the 3-0 Packers.
  • The Eagles endured more injury woe against Detroit with CB Ronald Darby having his game ended early with a hamstring problem and it is sufficient enough to rule him out of this trip to Green Bay with a longer spell on the sidelines also possible.
  • One big weakness for the Eagles last week was at WR with both DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery ruled out but the latter is set to feature this week after overcoming a calf issue which has seen him log two full practices.

GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Green Bay moved to 3-0 with a solid win over Denver as their defense held firm despite being under pressure late in the game and they will be confident of making it four wins in a row to begin the year as they host a struggling Philadelphia.
  • The Packers placed LG Lane Taylor on IR before the game with the Broncos meaning rookie Elgton Jenkins is likely to be the full-time starter for the foreseeable future until Taylor returns later in the season.
  • TE Jimmy Graham logged a limited practice on Tuesday as he bids to overcome a quadricep injury but he should be good to suit-up but doubts remain over the availability of DL Montravius Adams and LB Oren Burks.

THE PREDICTION

Green Bay continued their impressive start to the season with a win over Denver and will look to move to 4-0 as they host injury-ravaged Philadelphia. The Eagles have injuries on both offense and defense which has seen them lose two in a row and this could be three with the Packers able to improve their record. Green Bay are difficult to beat at Lambeau and this TNF game presents them with a real chance to shine on both sides of the ball with Philadelphia likely to fall short.
