Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Stream: CBS Sports, NFL Game Pass
NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Texans enter this Sunday’s contest sporting a 10-4 record that ranks them No. 1 overall in the division. With a win this Sunday the Texans can clinch the division and subsequently secure a spot in the postseason. Unfortunately the NFL football betting odds aren’t exactly siding with Houston here. Putting that aside, what do the stats have to say about this Sunday’s contest? Well they’re certainly painting Houston as the favorite here. Right now Houston is scoring 25.1 points per game while the Eagles are struggling to score 22.2. Things are similar on defense with the Texans getting the edge over Philly, since they give up 20.1 while Philly allots 22.7.
Players to Watch: Deshaun Watson (3,592 passing yards, 24 TD, 9 INT), Lamar Miller (917 rushing yards, 4 TD, 0 F), and DeAndre Hopkins (1,321 receiving yards, 11 TD, 94 REC).
The Eagles fly into this Sunday’s contest sporting a 7-7 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NFC East. With a win this Sunday and a Cowboys loss as well, Philly could work their way up to the No. 1 spot in the division. With the division very much up for grabs Philly will be coming out in full force this weekend. Although Wentz is sidelined the Eagles were able to upset the Rams this past Sunday with Nick Foles leading the charge. Foles was able to lead them to a Super Bowl victory in January and is now poised to get this franchise into the postseason.
Players to Watch: Carson Wentz (3,074 passing yards, 21 TD, 7 INT), Josh Adams (440 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Zach Ertz (1,038 receiving yards, 6 TD, 101 REC).
