Carson Wentz completed 23 of his 45 pass attempts for 218 yards and a pair of touchdowns that were cancelled out by a pair of interceptions in the game. It didn't help his cause that Wentz was also sacked twice in the game.

Jordan Matthews led the Eagles with 59 yards on 5 receptions while Dorial Green-Beckham also caught 5 passes for 54 yards and a touchdown.

Green Bay burned me last week, and it may very well happen again. But the Packers are too good to be on this bad of a slump. The Eagles are good but are sliding in their own right, so getting points with what I feel is the better team overall is something that definitely catches my interest. Green Bay needs to win out to have even an outside chance at making the playoffs and I think it starts here.
Give me Green Bay and the points.
