Week 12 of the NFL season is here as the Philadelphia Eagles play host to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in a Sunday Night Football matchup. Tonight’s matchup features two teams who have traversed down opposite paths over the past few seasons.
Still, in a matchup between a 9-1 Eagles team against a Packers team with such stars as the aforementioned Rogers and running back Aaron Jones, there will be no shortage of excitement for certain.
Eagles (9-1) vs. Packers (4-7) game info
When: Sunday, November 27th, 2022
Kickoff: 8:20 PM ET
Where: Philadelphia, PA | Lincoln Financial Field
How to watch: NBC, NFL+
The Philadelphia Eagles continue to own the top record in the entire NFL. With just seven games left in their season, the odds of the team remaining on top are not certain. Tonight’s game against the Packers presents a unique challenge as Green Bay is an uninspiring 4-7 on the year, yet you can never count out a team with the caliber of stars the Packers boast.
The Packers have dealt with a laundry list of injuries yet but should not be taken lightly — as the Eagles have taken other opponents throughout the season. With Aaron Rodgers under center, Aaron Jones, and AJ Dillon in the backfield, the offense still has the potential to find a way against Philadelphia’s typically strong defense.
Tonight will be exciting enough, but with these must-play props, one can create even more excitement by joining the action!
Miles Sanders | Over 69.5 Rushing Yards | -115
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders is experiencing a career year, averaging 75.7 rushing yards per game. While the former Nittany Lion has been held under 54 rushing yards in each of the past two weeks, that was against two of the more unforgiving run defenses (Washington and Indianapolis), tonight offers an encouraging opportunity.
The Green Bay Packers are allowing the fourth-most rushing yards to running backs among all NFL teams, allowing 120 rushing yards per game — 4.8 yards per carry (tied for fifth worst). Sanders will have the chance tonight to carve up the Green Bay defense on the ground — assuming the game plan allows it.
Take the over for Miles Sanders’ rushing yards tonight.
Devonta Smith | Over 4.5 Total Receptions | -185
Dallas Goedert is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury; AJ Brown, over the past couple of weeks, has not looked quite like himself either, for that matter. With that being the case, enter Devonta Smith, who will — just like last week — find himself as the reliable target for Jalen Hurts in the passing game. With his trademark quickness, agility, and crisp route running at his disposal, Smith will find himself open early and often giving Hurts an option, especially in the short/mid-range parts of the field.
Take the over for Devonta Smith’s receptions tonight.
Jalen Hurts | Anytime Touchdown | +100
Jalen Hurts is the clear and obvious engine of the Philadelphia Eagles offense. Yes, the receivers — especially AJ Brown — and the offensive line play an enormous role, but it is Hurts who has willed this team to their 9-1 record. It’s that same will that leads him to take control so often and put the pressure to score squarely on himself.
Part of the rationale here is that, without Dallas Goedert, the Philadelphia Eagles’ offense seems, to a degree, broken. When that is the case, that is when Hurts tends to step up and not only leads the team through the air but on the ground as well, just as he did last week. Expect him to do so once again tonight.
Take the Anytime Touchdown tonight for Jalen Hurts.
