Philadelphia Eagles vs. Denver Broncos Predictions: Do We Dare Back Philly?

The Denver Broncos are 5-4 on the season and have a real chance at winning the AFC West this season. Each team in the AFC West has five wins on the year, and the Chargers and Raiders have one fewer loss on the season.

Looking to add another win, the Broncos will welcome the Philadelphia Eagles to Mile High in what should be a fantastic matchup. The Broncos defeated the Dallas Cowboys last week, knocking off Philadelphia's rivals. Now they’ll look to knock off their second NFC East opponent on the season.

The Eagles, on the other hand, have looked shockingly bad recently. With three losses in their last four games, the Eagles will really need to pick up a win or they’ll run out of time in the NFC East trying to catch Dallas.

Here are some picks and predictions for the Eagles and Broncos game on Sunday, November 14.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Denver Broncos Prediction

Despite having a 5-4 record, it’s hard to back the Denver Broncos. Most wins, outside of last week, have come against very bad teams. The Broncos have always had their number against the Eagles. Now I’m afraid oddsmakers and the public are going to bet heavily on the Broncos after last week.

On paper, the Eagles are actually the better team. The offense averages 25.2 points per game and they have a much better offensive line in comparison to Denver. The Eagles have really started to shift their focus to running the football, even with Miles Sanders unavailable.

Doing this has minimized turnovers from quarterback Jalen Hurts, as he’s thrown 11 touchdowns and just four interceptions on the year. Towards the end of last week’s loss against the Chargers, Hurts was really connecting with Devonta Smith.

On the other hand, the Broncos are fine offensively, but with a below-average offensive line, things become a bit more difficult.

The Broncos average less than three touchdowns per game but are able to prevent points, allowing 337.9 yards and 17 points per game.

Still, the defense, on paper, is a bit overrated. They’ve struggled making tackles in the open field and have a secondary that hasn’t performed all that well this season. Denver has allowed just 17 points per game but there's no specific area where you can say Denver is electric on defense right now.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have dominated in the pass rush and have been making tackles in the open field and in the backfield. They’re not going to get a ton of stops in the run game, allowing 119.7 yards per game, but the tackling has helped keep runs down a little bit this season.

With the way the Broncos pass protection has been, the Eagles pass rush should be able to force turnovers and create third-and-longs. Therefore, I’ll back the Eagles on the road in this one at +3.0.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Denver Broncos Pick

  • Eagles +3.0 (-110)
