The Philadelphia Eagles did not give their fans much reason to cheer over the final three quarters of their last home game as they were outscored by Washington 25-7 en route to their first loss of the season. Philadelphia (9-1) hopes to put on a far better display in its own building when the Eagles host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. The Eagles avoided a second straight setback last week, scoring a touchdown with 1:20 remaining in the fourth quarter to give them a 17-16 triumph at Indianapolis. Green Bay (4-7) has been in a major funk, losing six of its last seven contests after falling 27-17 to Tennessee at home in its last outing.
Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia is a 6.5-point favorite in the latest Packers vs. Eagles odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total points scored is 46.

Why the Eagles can cover
Philadelphia trailed throughout against the Colts last week before Jalen Hurts' 7-yard touchdown run and the subsequent extra point late in the contest helped the team pull out a victory. The rushing TD was the eighth of the season for Hurts, who is fourth in the NFL in that category. The 24-year-old has the third-most running scores by a quarterback in his first three seasons during the Super Bowl era with 21, trailing Cam Newton (28) and Josh Allen (25).
Hurts has done a solid job leading the Eagles' aerial attack as well, with 15 touchdown passes and only three interceptions. One of his top targets is A.J. Brown, who is ninth in the league with 785 receiving yards on 49 receptions and tied for sixth with six TD catches. Fellow wideout DeVonta Smith has amassed 559 yards and three scores on a team-high 52 receptions. See which team to pick here.
Why the Packers can cover
Despite the fact Green Bay is experiencing its worst 11-game start since 2006, Aaron Rodgers still is among the league leaders in several categories. The four-time NFL MVP ranks fourth with 19 touchdown tosses and sixth with 2,542 passing yards. With longtime favorite target Davante Adams now in Las Vegas, Rodgers has begun to form a connection with rookie receiver Christian Watson.
The 23-year-old Watson made only 10 catches for 88 yards with no touchdowns in his first six games after being selected in the second round of this year's NFL Draft. But he has broken out over his last two contests, hauling in eight passes for 155 yards and five scores to become the seventh rookie in the NFL since 1970 with five touchdown receptions in a two-game span. Watson joined Max McGee (1954) as the only Packers rookies with multiple TD catches in consecutive games. See which team to pick here.
