Philadelphia Eagles try to ride on the momentum of their big win over the Chargers. It all starts with Wentz as he tries to connect well with the Philly offensive. Aside from Ertz, there is also Aslhon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson to help out. Jeffery owns an overall rating of 85 while Jackson is at 84. Defensively, all eyes will be on Fletcher Cox (95) and Brandon Graham (87). There is also Malcolm Jenkins leading the secondary, giving the Lions offense something to worry about on Wednesday.
The Lions may not be among the favorites this SIM season but are expected to give the Eagles some competition. They do have a formidable duo in Golladay and Jones but need other players to step up. Stafford is trying to do his part quarterbacking the team. However, their offense may be in for a rude awakening against the vaunted Philly defense. Defensively, Detroit Lions will turn to Damon Harrison Jr. who has an overall rating of 89. Darius Slay Jr. can help out as well, someone who has a decent rating in the 80s.
