I expect us to lose 35-17.......so we'll probably win 48-3.
Here's the glimmer of hope I have:
We lost to the Chiefs who have the best D in the league (going by pts/g)
Before that we lost to the Panthers who are ranked 3rd (and even came close to beating SEA)
Before that we lost to Denver who is ranked averagely in pts/g, but mainly because they get huge leads and the D softens up late in games.
Before that we lost to Dallas who is ranked 12th and really if not for the turnovers, we win that game with how bad they played against us.
So.....we're allowing the most pts per game, but mainly because our offense sucks and the D is gassed by the 4th quarter. Our offense will be playing a PHI defense that allows the 2nd most pts/g and the MOST yards/g.
So this is it. A real test for a shaky offense now playing a bad defense. I accept nothing less than a 20 pt win, otherwise we truly are ****ed. Make a statement here and let it snowball into some wins and we could be right back in it.
But with this oline, and it'll likely change AGAIN, I don't see it happening. But it absolutely SHOULD happen this week of all weeks.
loss...philly has our number even when when we're good. Now we're *****..it's gonna be that much worse
We embarrassed them week 17 last year. Same defense, but a little worse really. The offense is better, but if we can run the ball on them (we've faced some strong run Ds so far) a little and control the tempo, it's winnable.
