How can I get him back?

2020.07.10 09:48 New-Average3798 How can I get him back?

I work at the state capitol where I met the legislator I ended up dating after the 2020 session. While in session, we never spoke a word to each other and never really noticed each other until...... We matched on Tinder a couple months ago.
We started messaging each other through the app, then texting, and then eventually started going on dates. We immediately hit it off and even went for an evening swim where I felt that there was chemistry in between us.
After a few dates, I had to stop by the capitol to drop off something for my boss and didn't tell him that I was in the building (because I didn't want him to think that I was stalking him). I only planned on dropping the stuff off and leaving. My boss and I were heading up the elevator when in comes.... The guy that I've been dating.
The elevator ride was really awkward and from that day on, he stopped engaging with me. I finally sent a message from Matthew Hussey's, "What to message a man when he pulls away," "I'm feeling some confusion from you, which is totally fine, but I'm going to take some space. Because I don't want to get closer to someone who's not sure what they want." And he stoped messaging me completely.
I have some guesses as to why - 1) he told me he doesn't like my boss and maybe seeing that I was with my boss made it weird? 2) He finally realized that there's major power differences in between us? 3) He doesn't want to risk his job? 4) I'm just not interesting to him anymore? 5) I became too clingy?
But, he still views all of my Instagram stories... Why is that? (Or does he view everyone's posts and I'm just making something out of nothing?) Either way, I get really excited when I see that he's seeing my posts which makes me post more and more and I feel like being constantly reminded of my existence will only make him turned off by me more.
I'm tired of feeling rejected and not being wanted. And coming off the high of dating someone of a high profile makes me feel miserable and I really would like for us to reconnect..
In the meantime, I decided to get plastic surgery in the hopes that he'll want me afterwards.

2019.11.01 19:04 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 9 - Philadelphia Eagles(4-4) vs. Chicago Bears (3-4)

Philadelphia Eagles (4-4) vs Chicago Bears(3-4)
The Eagles return to the friendly confines of Lincoln Financial Field Sunday after salvaging one win on their 3 game road trip taking care of business against the Buffalo Bills last week. They welcome the Chicago Bears to town in a rematch of last years NFC wildcard round and the second matchup of the Battle of Reid’s Bastards. where the Eagles squeaked out a win after the double doink missed field goal by Cody Parkey. The Eagles offense has struggled this season, but found a rhythm last week against a tough Bills defense by pounded it on the ground. They will need to do the same this week to slow out the always disruptive Khalil Mack. Part of that ground attack will be former Bear Jordan Howard who will look for some revenge on his former team after he was traded to Philadelphia in the offseason. In the passing game, the Eagles may get a boost with the return of the speedy Desaen Jackson who hasn’t played since week 1 where he put up 152 yards and 2 TDs in the season opener. Jackson was a limited participant this week, and is listed as questionable, but if he returns to the lineup it will be an immediate upgrade in the receiving corp giving Wentz a speedy deep threat and a guy with excellent hands who is always dangerous in space. On the defensive side, the Eagles will try to limit the Bears ground game and force Mitchell Trubkisky to beat him with his arm, something he has struggled with this season. Cox and Graham seemed to find their grove last week against the Bills and new Eagle Genard Avery will look to make and impact as well. Avonte Maddox will also resume his duties in the slot after missing the last three games with a neck injury. If the Eagles can get their offense going and get some turnovers on defense it should lead to an Eagle victory at the Linc.

Eagles 16 - Bears 15
In the battle of Reid’s Bastards, Pederson’s team struck first as the Eagles scored on a Jake Elliott field goal on the opening possession. The scoring went silent until a Nick Foles INT set up a FG for the Bears to bring the score to a tie, the Bears added another field to take the Bears into halftime up 6-3. The Eagles took the lead on their first possession of the second half with a Dallas Goedert TD before the Bears answered with a TD and FG of their own to take a 15-10 lead. The Philadelphia Eagles needed help to get into the playoffs, and Chicago provided it. The Eagles repaid them by knocking off the number defense for the second year in a row in the playoffs to send the Bears home. Foles lead the Eagles offense down field and scored a Golden Tate TD with under a minute to go in the game. The Bears marched down the field with a chance to answer and come away with the win on a last second field. Pederson iced Parkey on his first attempt when he lined up for his second shot. He lined up and kicked it with a slightly low trajectory, just low enough for the pinky of Trayvon Hester alter the flight and cause a double doink off the upright and crossbar. The Philadelphia Eagles needed help to get into the playoffs, and Chicago provided it. The Eagles repaid them by sending them home in the wildcard round as Pederson came out victorious in the Battle of Reid’s bastards.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video Have spending a week churning on 37-10 loss to the Cowboys, the Eagles responded with a 31-13 win over the Bills. The Eagles defense set the tone and the Eagles pounded the ball on the ground on the windy New York afternoon. The Eagles took control by scoring touchdowns 83 seconds apart spanning halftime to build a 17-7 lead. Graham's forced fumble of quarterback Josh Allen at Buffalo's 24 led to Carson Wentz hitting Dallas Goedert for a 5-yard touchdown catch with 25 seconds left in the second quarter. On the second snap from scrimmage in the third quarter, Sanders followed Howard's block of linebacker Matt Milano in bursting up the left sideline. The second-round draft pick celebrated his touchdown by leaping into a group of Eagles fans in the northeast corner of the endzone's stands. After the Bills answered with a Devin Singletary score on a 28-yard catch on Buffalo's next possession, the Eagles responded with Wentz overseeing a six-play, 68-yard touchdown drive capped by Boston Scott's 4-yard touchdown run. The Eagles finished with 218 yards on the ground their highest total in a game since 2014.
Bears
Video Three straight punts preceded Piñeiro's 33-yard field goal hitting the right upright. On the Chargers' ensuing drive, Fuller intercepted Philip Rivers and returned it to the Chargers' four-yard line, but the offense struggled to gain a yard, leading to Piñeiro making a 27-yard kick. Chicago reached Los Angeles' nine-yard line but only reached their seven; Piñeiro kicked a 25-yard field goal. The Chargers answered with a four-play, 75-yard drive that ended with Melvin Gordon's four-yard touchdown run. Down by one, the Bears reached the Chargers' five-yard line with help from Montgomery's 55-yard run, but further red zone woes persisted, leading to Piñeiro giving his team the 9–7 lead on a 19-yard kick. To start the second half, the Bears mounted an 11-play, 75-yard series that included eight rushes as Montgomery recorded a four-yard score. Chase McLaughlin made a 20-yard field goal to end the third quarter. Early in the final period, Trubisky was intercepted by Casey Hayward, but McLaughlin's 42-yard kick was wide right; the Chargers regained possession on the next series after Trubisky lost a fumble on his 26-yard line. The takeaway led to Rivers' go-ahead score to Austin Ekeler. After two drives ending with punts, the Bears got the ball back on their 35 with 1:33 remaining in the game. Although Trubisky led the Bears to the Chargers' 21, Nagy called to kneel to run down the clock and set up Piñeiro's potential game-winning 41-yard kick. The kick went wide left as time expired,] marking the Bears' first three-game losing streak under Nagy.

Stats to Know
Bears’ Play Action Passing
In 2019, Mitchell Trubisky is averaging a higher Yards Per Attempt and slightly higher Completion % via Play Action than not (6.0 vs. 5.5 & 65.6% vs. 64.4%). Trubisky is only using Play Action 16.7% of dropbacks, which is 2nd-lowest of all QBs. It’s kind-of tough to threaten a team with Play Action when your running game is playing so relatively poorly (no Bears RB is better than 71st in RB Yards After Contact or 62nd in Yards Per Attempt. The best a Bears RB fares in overall Offensive PFF Grade is 58th.
Matchups to Watch
Bears Defensive Line vs Eagles Offensive Line… or Andre Dillard
Everyone who covers the Eagles is quick to point out the likely matchup between Khalil Mack and Andre Dillard for good reason. While the Bears will move Mack all over the defensive front, he will likely get the bulk of his snaps across from the Eagles rookie tackle. Dillard has shown steady improvement since taking over for the injured Jason Peters. He is a great athlete at the position and moves very well for a man his size. Additionally, he’s pretty good in the run game despite the common criticism of him in that area in the pre-draft process. One area of his game that Dillard must improve, which will take his game to greater heights, his is ability to handle power rushes and to anchor. Right now, that ability is somewhat limited, likely due to his college coaching and competition. In the PAC-12, Dillard didn’t face the quality of rushers a lot of other prospects get to face in the Power 5 conferences; additionally, he wasn’t asked to do a variety of pass blocking sets in the scheme Washington State runs. Khalil Mack makes life difficult for All-Pro Offensive Linemen putting Dillard under the microscope on Sunday. Mack isn’t the only good player on this defensive front. The Eagles will catch a break with stud IDL Akiem Hicks on IR but the Bears still have Eddie Goldman with other effective rotational linemen behind him. Leonard Floyd has also emerged as a quality EDGE opposite Mack. Chuck Pagano isn’t afraid to bring the athletic linebackers they have on blitzes either. While this Bears defense isn’t producing turnovers at the insane rate they did last year, this is still a stout defensive front that has kept the team in games. They haven’t let the team down this year. This is a significant matchup for the Eagles given the quality of the opposition and their own offensive struggles. Can Dillard quickly rise to the occasion? How do the Eagles game plan, or alter what they’ve done, to account for Mack?
Bears Defense vs. Eagles Newly Dated Offensive Game Plan
Listen, running 40 times per game and averaging 5 YPC in the process is great to watch since we get to see the soul taken from our opponent. This happened last week against the Bills, especially on the 8 minute drive the Eagles had to effectively end the game. The issue with the philosophy is it’s normally an inefficient and ineffective way to win football games. Since the Eagles Super Bowl season, they have become more run oriented, with that shift occurring sharply this year. Part of the reason is due to injury; Desean Jackson figured to be a large part of the Eagles attack and can’t when he is injured. Another reason is due to players underperforming expectations. Alshon Jeffery is a solid receiver, but Nelson Agholor has remained the general liability he’s always been while somehow regressing and Mack Hollins is basically useless. Don’t even get my started with whatever is going on with JJAW. The Eagles are getting nothing from their WRs and the offensive coaching staff isn’t doing a good enough job scheming an offensive attack while suffering from roster construction issues. The Eagles are currently the 17th best offense by DVOA – 19th rushing, 14th passing. That’s not going to get it done for this team. The Eagles problems from 2018 have continued into 2019 while getting slightly worse. This is a Bears defense that is 7th in DVOA. This is a perfectly winnable game for the Eagles but their offensive struggles could keep this game too close for comfort. This is a long term problem for the Eagles this season and one that could have ramifications Sunday. Against a tough Bills defense, on the road, and in poor weather conditions, the coaches had a good game plan on offense that lead to the win. That’s not something the Eagles have consistently had this year. Part of the turnaround the Eagles need to have rests on the offenses ability to improve; improving the struggling passing game would work wonders for this team. The Eagles will likely have Desean Jackson back on Sunday. How effective he’ll be and what that means for the Eagles offense is huge. Ultimately, it’s a coaching and player execution problem above all else. Wentz hasn’t been the problem this year, which will aid in the turn around.
Bears Offensive Line vs Eagles Defensive Front
It has been slow-going for the Eagles defensive front on the season but it appears that this unit is starting to become a more effective group. The Bears offensive line is decent but isn’t playing at the level it has previously. Furthermore, their best offensive lineman, Kyle Long, is done for the season with injury. Fletcher Cox is fresh off a strong performance and appears to be rounding into form; the effectiveness of the Eagles pass rush rests on Cox given his dynamic ability. Brandon Graham also appears to be returning to a move effective form after notching a sack and forcing a key fumble last week in Buffalo. Derek Barnett has put together consecutive good performances which the Eagles really need. Prior to the trade deadline, the Eagles added Genard Avery via trade with the Browns. While Avery has been a healthy scratch this season, his play last year has shown him to be a more effective day 3 rusher than Shareef Miller has been for the Eagles in 2019 – not great. Avery is a pure pass rusher, though undersized. In Gregg Williams scheme, Avery was a good rotational rusher, which is where he thrives. Avery was a bit miscast under Steve Wilks this season since Avery isn’t effective dropping into coverage and playing in space. I don’t understand why coaches like Wilks don’t adapt their scheme to fit their personnel but what do I know? Either way, the Eagles still have issues in pass coverage. What is the best way to hide that? That’s right, pass rush. The Eagles still have a good defensive line that is slowly getting better each week. They face a QB that is a mess all around and an offensive line that isn’t as good as it needs to be to make up the difference. Pressure can force QBs into making mistakes; this is huge against Trubisky, who makes mistakes when he isn’t under pressure.
Bears Passing Offense vs Eagles Passing Defense
For the second consecutive week, the Eagles will face a QB that is a better RB than he is QB. The Eagles secondary has made fewer mistakes with the return of the swag-tastic Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby but “fewer” is deceiving. Simply put, the Eagles are up against another middling to bad offense and a passing attack this week that they need to take advantage of. The biggest issue they face this week are the Bears receiving options. Allen Robinson is a very good receiver and easily the best receiver Philly has seen since Amari Cooper. Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, and Tarik Cohen are all playmakers in their own right. This is a deeper group of weapons the Bears have to work with than Josh Allen has. It’s just the QB is considerably worse with an offensive scheme that has regressed mightily. The Bears offense is ranked 28th by DVOA – 21st passing, 27th rushing – and it shows when you watch them. Allen Robinson is really the only player Trubisky can seem to get the ball to and he regularly struggles with that. The Eagles secondary was “better” against the Bills… but not really. Allen had issues locating open receivers for various reasons (pressure, general inability) that left points on the field for their offense. The Eagles still haven’t cleaned up a lot of the mistakes that regularly plague them. Their opponent this week may afford them the opportunity to skirt disaster again but all it takes is one mistake to cost them the game. The Eagles aren’t in a position to give up games against teams they should beat so every possession matters. The defense, while struggling, should be able to handle what the Bears will throw their way. More consistent execution from the players and coaches would work wonders here. Keep the Bears in a hole – force their offense to chase. Play and coach smart.

2019.10.25 19:28 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 8 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-4) at Buffalo Bills (5-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at Buffalo Bills (5-1)
The Eagles road trip struggles got worse as they were thoroughly embarrassed by their division rival on primetime last Sunday. The look to salvage a win on their three game road trip as they take on the 5-1 Bills on Sunday. Finding a win against the tough Bills defense led by former Eagles DC Sean McDermott will be no easy task. McDermott learned from one of the best in late Jim Johnson and his attacking defense will look to shutdown Carson Wentz. It will be up to Doug Pederson and the Mike Groh to put together a game plan to keep the Bills on their toes and slowdown the Bills attacking offense. On the defensive ball Jim Schwartz’s defense has been shredded the last two weeks. Schwartz remains stubborn as he continues to leave his corners out to dry opting instead to lend more help to stop the run despite being the 29th ranked pass defense in the league. The Eagles got a boost last week in Jalen Mills returning at his corner spot for the first time in over a year. Mills had an interception and played tight coverage for most of the day, but he alone wasn’t enough to stop the high powered Cowboys offense. Allen isn’t the QB that Dak or Cousins are, but he still has a cannon and a dangerous deep threat in John Brown who has torched the Eagles in the past when he was on the Cardinals. Schwartz will need to put his guys in the right position or this game could be filled with some big plays to Brown and allow the Bills to do what they prefer which is pound the rock and eat up clock. This game should determine if the Eagles are buys or sellers next week at the trade deadline. The Birds are going to need to man up and come out of here with a win if they want to make it to the post season for the 3rd consecutive season. Go Birds!

Eagles 23 - Bills 20
Sam Bradford and a tenacious defense ruined LeSean McCoy's homecoming. McCoy had 74 rushing yards and 35 receiving in his first game back in Philadelphia after Chip Kelly traded the All-Pro for the oft injured Kiko Alonso. But the effort wasn’t enough to overcome Sam Bradford and the Eagles Bradford threw for 247 yards, including a 53-yard TD to Nelson Agholor. The Bills had chances at the end of the game, but Caleb Sturgis kicked a 30-yard field goal with 3:26 left, Ed Reynolds intercepted Tyrod Taylor's pass in the final minutes and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Buffalo Bills 23-20 on Sunday.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video The Eagle stunk it up for the 2nd consecutive week. They came out flat from the get go and basically looked to give the game to the Cowboys turning the ball over with back to back fumbles on their first two series. The team never looked like they had their heart in the game and just wanted the game to be over by halftime outside of a few players. Malcom Jenkins was one of them as he was ran over on back to back plays by Zeke Elliott for a touchdown that was overturned and then one that wasn’t. The Cowboys ran all over the highly touted Eagles run defense to the tune of 189 yards. Playing the clock game and wearing out the defense after they were firmly ahead and lead most of the day. The Eagles coaching staff did not have their team prepared for this game and it showed from the opening quarter as the Eagles fell 37-10 to their rival.
Bills
Video Against the winless Dolphins, the Bills trailed at halftime 14–9 following a strong second quarter from Miami QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was Buffalo's starter from 2009 to 2012. The Dolphins looked to extend their lead in the third quarter, but CB Tre'Davious White intercepted Fitzpatrick at the Buffalo 2-yard line. The Bills then regained the lead with two Josh Allen touchdown passes to receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley, respectively, with the latter occurring after White forced the Dolphins to fumble near their 30-yard line. Though the Dolphins scored again later in the fourth quarter, the Bills iced the game after safety Micah Hyde returned Miami's ensuing onside kick for a touchdown.] With the win, the Bills improved to 5–1 for the first time since 2008.

Philadelphia has registered a 7-6 (.538) all-time record vs. Buffalo in a series that dates back to 1973. The Eagles are 3-4 (.429) in games played at New Era Field.
Since 2003, Philadelphia has won 3 of its previous 4 games vs. Buffalo. The Eagles defeated the Bills, 23-20, at home in their last meeting on 12/13/15.
Philadelphia owns the No. 6-ranked rushing defense (89.6) in the NFL. The Eagles also rank 1st in that category since 2016 (including playoffs), allowing 92.8 rushing yards per game.
Philadelphia has produced the 5th-best third-down offense (48.4%) in the NFL, behind Dallas (51.9%), Oakland (50.0%), L.A. Chargers (48.9%) and Houston (48.9%). The Eagles’ 48.4% third-down conversion rate is the team’s 3rd-best mark through 7 games since at least 1991, trailing only the 1994 (51.0%) and 2017 (50.6%) campaigns.
Carson Wentz ranks 2nd among NFL QBs in passing TDs per game (2.16) since 2017, behind Patrick Mahomes (2.71). Wentz is also tied with Matt Ryan for the 5th-best passer rating (100.0) in the NFL in that span, trailing only Mahomes (112.1), Drew Brees (108.8), Russell Wilson (104.4) and Deshaun Watson (130.3) (min. 500 attempts).
Miles Sanders is the first NFL RB to post 450+ scrimmage yards (450) and 250+ return yards (259) in their first 7 career games since Adrian Peterson in 2007 (927-324). Sanders leads all NFL rookies with 709 all-purpose yards.
Jordan Howard ranks 3rd among NFC RBs (9th in NFL) in rushing average (4.51), behind Dalvin Cook (5.45) and Christian McCaffrey (4.87) (min. 75 attempts). Howard also ranks 4th in the NFL (leads NFC) in rushing first down % (26.1%), trailing only Mark Ingram (28.3%), Carlos Hyde (27.0%) and Marlon Mack (26.1%) (min. 75 attempts)
Since 2003, Philadelphia has produced a 40-24-1 record vs. AFC opponents, marking the 4th-highest interconference winning percentage (.623) in the NFL in that span (also the best mark among NFC teams).
Buffalo and Philadelphia don’t share a deep history. However, it should be noted that Philadelphia was the only current NFC East team that did not beat the Bills in their four-year Super Bowl stretch.

Stats to Know
QBs under pressure
Among the 31 NFL quarterbacks with at least 50 pressured dropbacks this season, Eagles’ Carson Wentz ranks first in PFF passing grade (81.3), fourth in yards per attempt (8.3) and fifth in NFL passer rating (85.7). He has completed 40-of-82 attempts for 579 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions across his 100 pressured dropbacks on the year. On the other side only Mitchell Trubisky has a lower grade than Bills second-year quarterback Josh Allen on throws of 10-plus air yards among the 26 signal-callers with 50 or more throws of such depths through Week 7. Allen has completed just 32-of-63 attempts on such throws for 663 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Including plays nullified by penalty, Allen has logged just four big-time throws and five turnover-worthy plays when throwing 10 or more yards down the field.
Matchups to Watch
The Bills passing attack vs the Eagles secondary
Josh Allen is nowhere near the level of Kirk Cousins and Dak Prescott who have shredded the Eagles secondary in back to back weeks, but Allen does have a strong arm and two receivers who have given the Eagles trouble in the past. John Brown has faced the Eagles 3 times while with the Cardinals and scored a touchdown in each of those meetings. Allen loves to go deep to the speedy Brown who has turned himself into a number one wideout the last two seasons. Look for the Bills to exploit the Eagles slow corners with go routes and double moves on the opening series, two things they struggle to defend. Schwartz has been stubborn, refusing to give his corners help over the top and I don’t expect that to change Sunday despite the threat of the deep ball from Allen. Schwartz will most likely stack the box and force Allen to beat him, which hasn’t worked out for Schwartz outside of the Jets game against the now unemployed Luke Falk. In the slot the Eagles will also see a familiar face as they line up against Cole Beasley. The scrappy Beasley has given Eagles corners fits over the years with the Cowboys. Beasley creates matchup problems and is great at finding the open part of the field on 3rd downs. Sidney Jones will most likely be asked to defend Beasley has he returns from a hamstring injury. Jones has failed to live up to his hype a projected first round before the injury, but the Eagles need him to step up Sunday to shutdown Beasley in the slot.
Eagles WRs vs the Bills Secondary
The Eagles WRs have not been good this season outside of Desean Jackson who has been missing following his 158 yard 2 TD game against the Redskins to open the season. The rest of the WRs have been one of the worst units in the league having the fewest yards per target when you take out Jackson and his 17.11 average. They have not only failed to get separation and get open for Carson Wentz, but they also lead the league in dropped passes. Someone is going to need to step up Sunday as they take on the Bills who are allowing 201.3 passing yards per game (4th best in the NFL), 5.9 yards per pass attempt (3rd best in the NFL), and they have allowed just one pass of 40+ yards (tied for best in the NFL). The Bills secondary is led by CB Tre'Davious White who leads the Bills with 3 INTs this season. The one advantage the Eagles WRs do have is size as the Bills corners are all 6’0ft or shorter and under 200lbs, so the Eagles WRs should have the advantage on any 50/50 balls. That said it is unlikely anyone from this unit impresses against the strength of the Bills defense.
Eagles Pass Rush vs the Bills Offensive Line
The Eagles pass rush looks like a shell of itself, if you take out the Jets game they only have 7 sacks in the other 6 games. However, the Eagles have some matchups they should be able to exploit this game. Brandon Graham who leads the Eagles with four sacks this season will be matched up against rookie Cody Ford. The rookie has struggled in pass protection this season giving up 4 sacks on the year so far. Jon Felicano has the second lowest grade on the Bills OL according to PFF sitting at 59.3. The scrappy guard will be lining up against Fletcher Cox who has struggled to get going this season as he returns from injury. Feliciano has allowed 1 sack and 8 pressures so far this year. If Graham and Cox can win their matchups and play in the Bills backfield it could be big in forcing turnovers. Allen has 7 INTs and 5 fumbles in his second season, DL needs to be disruptive and get Allen seeing ghosts to force him into mistakes. If the Eagles defense can force some turnovers and put their offense in good field position it will go a long way on getting some points on the board against a strong Bills defense.
Eagles Running backs and Tight Ends vs the Bills Safeties and Linebackers
As mentioned above the Eagles WR is abysmal without Desean Jackson in the lineup, so someone will need to step for Carson Wentz. Goedert and Ertz are probably the most talented TE dou in the league, but Pederson and Groh have struggled to use them as effectively as the Patriots utilize Gronk and Hernandez when they were paired together. The two big TEs should have a size advantage, however the Bills have allowed the second fewest receptions, second fewest yards and no TDs to Tight Ends this season. One possible outlet may be the speedy Miles Sanders who has flashed as a receiver this season. James White was the leading WR for the Patriots in the Bills one loss this season. If Pederson and Groh can get their head out of their asses and better highlight Sanders in the passing game it could mean a big day for the rookie and lead to points on the scoreboard.

2018.10.26 01:21 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 8 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-4) vs Jacksonville Jaguars(3-4)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars (3-4)
The Eagles Super Bowl hangover isn’t just real it is a roll out of best head to Wawa and buy 5 breakfast sandwiches and all the Gatorade you can carry real. The Eagles blew a 17-0 lead in the 4th quarter against the Carolina Panthers as same issues for the Eagles reared their ugly heads for the Eagles. After taking the lead 17-0 rather than closing out the running game, the Eagles ran the ball just one time and gained just 22 yards in the 4th. On the other side of the ball it was just as bad as the Eagles gave up over 200 yards in the air to Cam Newton and blew the lead surrendering 21 points. The Eagles will have to be better this week as they make the trip across the pond to London to take on the Jaguars who they almost faced in the Super Bowl last season. The Eagles offense will need to be better as they take on one of the best defenses in the league especially against the pass where they rank 2nd. Wentz has been throwing for yards since returning from injury, but he will need to start putting the ball into the endzone more often to take some stress off the Eagles struggling defense. The Jaguars have had some struggles over their own as they are coming into the game with a 3 game losing streak and their starting QB being benched as they fell to the Texans last week. Bortles will probably be happy heading to Wembley where he is 3-0 with 8 TDs and only 1 INT. He is going to look to add to those stats against an Eagles secondary that has struggled against the big play this year. Don’t be surprised to see Bortles take some shots to Dede Westbrook deep as the Eagles cornerbacks give up the big play more than a freshman on prom night. The Eagles will get some reprieve as the Leonard Fournette will most likely miss 6th game this season with a hamstring injury. The Jaguars did trade for Carlos Hyde this week, though it will unlikely he will have a large part in the offense as learns the offense. The Jaguars have turned the ball over especially Bortles who has 8 INTs and lost 3 fumbles so far this season. The Eagles pass rush needs to pressure Bortles and forcing him into mistakes this game and put their offense in good field position. Hope everyone is ready for kegs and eggs Sunday for the 9:30am kickoff, it should be a good one.

Eagles 34 - Jaguars 17
The Eagles got caught off guard as the Jaguars came out firing on all cylinders to start the game with Chad Henne connecting on consecutive drives in the first quarter as the Jaguars jumped out to a 14-0 lead after the first. Josh Scobee added a field coach to start the 2nd quarter and the Jags took a 17-0 lead into the halftime. It was all Eagles in the second half scoring on their first two possessions with a 49 yard Darren Sproles TD run and a Nick Foles TD pass to Zach Ertz to bring it within a field goal. Cody Parkey tied the game to start the 4th quarter with a 51 yard FG and Jeremy Maclin caught a 68 TD pass on the next possession to take the lead. Parkey made it a two score game with just 2 minutes to go in the game and Trent Cole closed it out sacking Henne and causing a fumble which was picked up and taken to the house by Fletcher Cox to seal the game giving the Eagles a 34-17 win.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video The Eagles took on the Carolina Panthers at home in a game that could have brought them back above .500. The Eagles took an early lead as Wentz found Jeffrey in the endzone in the 2nd quarter and Jake Elliot hit on a field goal after missing on in the first to make it 10-0 heading into halftime. Wentz found Goedert in the endzone for the rookie’s second career TD to make it 17-0. The Eagles had held the Panthers’ offense in check through the first three quarters. The Panthers had no third-down conversions in the first half and their first five possessions ended in punts. But in the fourth quarter the Eagles choked the game away and the coaching staff failed to make adjustments as the Panthers had 226 yards to the Eagles’ 22. Newton completed 16 of 22 passes for 201 yards in the fourth alone. The Panthers scored 21 points in the 4th taking 4 point lead and the Eagles comeback attempt came up short as the Eagles fell 21-17.
Jaguars - Video – The Jaguars looked to stop the skid of against the division rival Texans, but struggled off the get go as Blake Bortles fumbled on the opening series give the Texans an easy three points. The Texans weren’t able to get anything going offensively as they punted on their next 4 possessions in the first halfs as the Texans added another FG and a Lamar Miller TD to push the score to 13-0 heading into the half. Bortles fumbled for the second time in the game on the Jaguars first possession which set up a DeAndre Hopkins touchdown. Following the fumble Bortles was benched in favor of Cody Kessler who wasn’t enough as he was only able muster one TD drive as the Jaguars fell 20-7 to their division rival.

Philadelphia will make its first trip to London to face Jacksonville in an inter-conference matchup at Wembley Stadium. The Eagles have won each of their last 2 games against the Jaguars.
Carson Wentz ranks 3rd in the NFL in INT% (0.5%), trailing only Drew Brees (0.0%) and Aaron Rodgers (0.4%). Wentz (10 TDs, 1 INT) has recorded a career-best 173 consecutive pass attempts without an INT, marking the longest streak by an Eagles QB since Nick Foles from 12/23/12-12/8/13 (237 pass attempts).
Wentz ranks 4th in the NFL in completion percentage (70.8%), behind Drew Brees (77.3%), Derek Carr (71.7%) and Matt Ryan (71.1%). Wentz has completed at least 65.0% of his pass attempts for a team-record 5 straight games, including a career-high 81.1% (30-of-37) in Week 7.
Wentz ranks 6th in the NFL in passer rating (108.1), trailing only Drew Brees(121.6), Philip Rivers (117.8), Matt Ryan (114.2), Patrick Mahomes (114.0) and Jared Goff (112.7) (min. 150 attempts). Wentz owns the highest passer rating in Eagles history (91.8) (min. 1,000 attempts).
Since joining the Eagles in 2017, Alshon Jeffery is tied for the 5th-most receiving TDs (13) in the NFL, behind DeAndre Hopkins (17), Davante Adams (16), Antonio Brown (15) and Tyreek Hill (14). Including playoffs, Jeffery has caught 7 TDs in his last 6 games (14 TDs in his last 16 overall).
Zach Ertz ranks 2nd in the NFL in receptions (57), trailing only Adam Thielen (67). Ertz, who ranks 5th on the Eagles’ all-time receptions list (369), is one of only nine players in NFL history to record 57+ receptions in the first 7 games of a season (only TE to accomplish the feat).
Ertz ranks 5th in the NFL in receiving yards (618) (1st among TEs), behind Adam Thielen (822), Julio Jones (708), DeAndre Hopkins (707) and Tyreek Hill (635).
Ertz joins Ben Coates in 1994 (51-744) and Mike Ditka in 1964 (50-617) as the only TEs in NFL history to produce 50+ receptions and 600+ receiving yards through 7 games. Ertz is the only player in Eagles history to do so.

Matchups to Watch
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Jaguars Offensive Line
Even with Derek Barnett going on IR with a shoulder injury, the Eagles defensive line is still very talented and still has a significant matchup advantage in this contest. While the defense has had it's inconsistencies this season it is still a good and well-coached unit that has kept the team in games and even bailed out the offense on occasion. Even if the offense was humming along at the pace it was last year, it would still have a significant challenge in the Jaguars defense. The Eagles would still need the defense to play at a high level to make life easier for themselves. And while the Eagles defense has been good it hasn't forced the amount of turnovers that it has in the past. Enter the Jaguars, who are among the league worst in giveaways, and their bad QB Blake Bortles. If there was ever a chance for the Eagles defense to have a truly dominant performance this will be the week. The matchup in the trenches for the Eagles defense will provide them with a chance to really control the game. Blake Bortles is a bad QB and is heavily reliant on favorable game scripts. This means his defense needs to be dominant, close enough games for the offense to lean on the power running game, and smart, calculated throws attacking opposing weaknesses in defensive pass schemes - basically the 2017 Jaguars offense. That's the best you'll see from Bortles and even then you don't see a guy capable of carrying anything other than a pack of smokes on game days. Why have they struggled? A big reason is they are down to their 3rd string left tackle due to injuries. Andrew Norwell is still a good guard but hasn't been playing at the elite level he did with the Panthers last year. AJ Cann isn't a good guard on the otherside and Jermey Parnell is a solid right tackle but definitely struggles in pass protection. Without favorable offensive situations and a QB that can pick up the slack, the Jaguars offensive line has been leaking pretty badly. Bortles is bad but isn't getting a lot of help from the cast around him. This unit will face an Eagles pass rush that can still get after the QB at a 40% rate which can cause turnovers that are bound to come in a Blake Bortles led offense. More will be asked of Graham, Bennett, and Long without Barnett than with him but all three are talented enough to eat this week. When you add in Fletcher Cox playing at a DPOY level, you can start to see how the Eagles defense can dominate this game. They cannot let the Jaguars get into any kind of rhythm offensively. Force Bortles to win with his arm. If they can do that they should be perfectly fine.
Eagles Secondary vs. Jaguars Offensive Weapons
The Eagles secondary has shown a propensity to break down against any opponent this year which could make this favorable matchup more problematic for the Birds than it should be. After losing Allen Robinson to the Bears in Free Agency, the Jaguars signed former 4th round pick Donte Moncrief to a two year contract. Moncrief never put it together even with a healthy Luck and has been a bad receiver for the Jaguars despite the offense forcing him targets. He is a lazy and slow route runner with limited big play ability. He is the kind of guy the Eagles secondary should be able to shut down this Sunday. Opposite him is WR Keelan Cole; on the season, Cole has shown to be an unreliable receiver despite the fact he is able to separate from coverage. He went to the Jordan Matthews School of Don't Catch Good showing an inability to consistently catch passes. In the slot the Eagles will likely see Dede Westbrook, who may be the most talented receiver on the roster. Westbrook might not be a true game-breaking talent outside but he has the ability to get open deep as well as accumulate a lot of yards after the catch. The Eagles will be without starter Sidney Jones this week which is unfortunate since that means Dexter McDougle will start in the slot again after being signed off the street a week ago. Eagles fans should not fear Moncrief or Cole but Westbrook has an opportunity to have a good game against a favorable opponent. I don't think coaching has been an issue for the Jaguars offense this season; it is a unit ravaged by injuries, limited help from the weapons, and poor QB play the entire organization committed to. Head coach Doug Marrone and OC Nathan Hackett have shown an ability to draw up plays and game plans that can attack the coverage tendencies of their opponent. They not only cannot execute, they aren't good enough to overcome their deficiencies. The Eagles defense was excellent for 3 quarters last week. It will need to pick itself up and play a complete game this week. There is no excuse to get gashed by the Jaguars offense Sunday.
Eagles Offensive Line vs Jaguars Pass Rush
When healthy, the Eagles have the best and deepest defensive line in Football - the Jaguars are second. The Eagles offense vs the Jaguars defense will be a fun battle to watch all day Sunday and puts each teams strengths at odds against one another. A lot has been made of the Eagles offense and the OL this season and for good reason. They are scoring fewer points than they did last year with a lot of mistakes that have really prohibited the team from turning their season around. Even the offensive line has gotten in on the fun by disappointing fans more often than we've been used to. Generally speaking, I do believe the offensive line has been pretty good this season. They've just had more high profile breakdowns than we've been used to seeing. The last two weeks have been a good showing for the OL and they'll need to continue that trend this week against a very formidable Jaguars defensive front. Calais Campbell signed with the Jaguars last season from the Cardinals and has been a man possessed along the defensive line. He'll see a lot of Jason Peters, who has been up and down on the season and is nursing a torn bicep. Malik Jackson and Taven Bryan are very talented and disruptive; they will make life difficult for Seumalo, Kelce, and Brooks. Yannick Ngakoue is a menace on the other EDGE position. His matchup with a banged up Lane Johnson will be one of the premier trench matchups week 8. Yannick was a target of the Eagles in the 2016 draft after they had him visit the facility but was taken before the Eagles selected in that 3rd round. The guy they did select, Isaac Seumalo, is having a resurgent season at LG after being reinserted into the starting line up much to the consternation of the fan base. The Jaguars use their defensive front similarly to the Eagles; they don't like to blitz a ton relying on their front 4 to generate a lot of pressure. They are very good at it as well. This will be one of the best units each line will face on the season. Winning in the trenches here will go a long way in determining who will enter their bye at .500.
Eagles Passing Offense vs Jaguars Passing Defense
The Run the Damn Ball crowd won't be happy to hear this but the effectiveness of the Eagles passing offense will not only go a long way in determining the winner of this game but also how the Eagles finish down the stretch after the bye. Running the ball is good but being successful through the air more strongly correlates to winning football in the NFL. Since Carson Wentz has returned to the line up in week 3, the Eagles passing offense has gotten better as he's gotten back into the swing of things and improved off his MVP caliber 2017. The return of Alshon Jeffery has also meant a lot to the success of the passing offense since the Eagles have little in the way of healthy receivers at the moment. They just haven't been able to put up points while regressing in the red zone, on 3rd down, and regressing on big plays created. Some of that is natural after the blistering rate the offense scored at last season. Some of it is also on execution, but a lot of it is on the limited receivers the Eagles have after Alshon Jeffery. They face a significant challenge in London on Sunday with the secondary and LBs the Jaguars have to defend against the pass. Jalen Ramsey is one of the premier CBs in the NFL, but the Eagles will get a break with former Texan AJ Bouye being ruled out for the game. Barry Church and Tashaun Gipson round out the secondary as the starting safeties. The Jaguars like to use rookie safety Ronnie Harrison in their big nickel defense as well. You pair all of these players with one of the most talented and athletic LB groups in the NFL - Myles Jack and Telvin Smith - and you get a ferocious defense that is one of the best in the league against the pass for the second consecutive year. Even if the Eagles had their full compliment of weapons for this game this would still be a difficult matchup as the Jaguars have the ability to shut down their opponents one on one. Their defense is still a great unit but has naturally regressed from their insane 2017 campaign. This doesn't mean they are easily beatable; although they should feel shame for getting smoked by Dallas. The Eagles just have their work cut out for them. Nelson Agholor hasn't been nearly as effective this year as the Eagles would have liked and there isn't a viable WR3 healthy on the roster at the moment to take the pressure off of him. While the Jaguars have struggled mightily to defend 12 personnel (2 TEs) the Eagles offense as a whole has been less effective through the air and (especially) on the ground in 11 personnel (3WR). The lack of WR help for the Eagles after Alshon makes this a tricky matchup for Carson Wentz and the Eagles coaching staff. Pederson and company certainly have the ability to scheme open receivers against any defensive group but do the Eagles have enough weapons to take advantage of the matchups they can create? Wentz has made significant strides as a passer and is truly and elite talent. Sure, he can be too aggressive at times and he'll learn to dial things back and take the smart choices. He's going to have to do just that in this game to help the offense against a very talented defense.

Milestones

RB Darren Sproles (18,337) is now 9th on the NFL's All-Time All-Purpose Yards list passing HoF RB Barry Sanders (18,308). He can move into 8th place with 119 more yards, passing RB LaDainian Tomlinson (18,456)
RB Darren Sproles (487) is 12 receptions away from collecting 500 career receptions. Sproles is also 2 touchdowns away from 60 total career touchdowns.
RB Ryan Mathews (4,806) is 194 yards from getting 5,000 career rushing yards.
OLB Connor Barwin (27.5) can move into 15th place on the Eagles All-Time Sack List with 2.5 more sacks, passing DT Jerome Brown (29.5). He is also 3.5 sacks away from reaching 50 career sacks!
P Donnie Jones (1,003) needs 1 more punts to pass P Mike Horan (1,003) to take 21st place on the NFL's All-Time punt list.
P Donnie Jones has 104 punts inside the 20 and is only three away from breaking P Jeff Feagles (104) Eagles team record.
TE Kyle Rudolph moved into second for receptions in team history by a TE with 203. Rudolph, who caught his 25th career touchdown in Week 4, is just three touchdowns shy of matching TE Steve Jordan's Vikings team record for touchdowns by a TE (28).
WKR Cordarrelle Patterson (3,492) is 132 Kick Return Yards away from moving into 1st place on the Vikings All-Time Kick Return Yards list. Patterson would pass RB/KR Darrin Nelson (3,623) on his way to the top.
K Blair Walsh (130) is 4 Field Goals Made away from moving into 3rd place on the Vikings All-Time Field Goals Made list, passing K Fuad Reveiz (133).
LB Chad Greenway (738) is only 34 tackles away from 1st place on the Vikings All-Time Tackles list, passing CB Carl Lee (771).
Matchups to Watch
Eagles RT Halapoulivaati Vaitai vs. Vikings DE Danielle Hunter
Vaitai struggled in his NFL debut, but seems to have put that behind him and is ready to move on to start No. 2. The rookie from TCU will see Viking veteran Bryan Robison on early downs, but Hunter is the Vikes' designated pass rusher and shares the team's lead in sacks with four. Head coach Doug Pederson might be forced to give Vaitai help again in the form of a tight end or a back, but it's not what the head coach wants to do offensively. It's up to the rookie to step up and show the coaching staff was right to stick with him this Sunday.
Eagles DE Brandon Graham vs. Vikings RT Jeremiah Sirles
Graham, after a quick start to the season, was invisible last Sunday against the Redskins. The former first-round pick finally looked like one through the first month, but his play against the 'Skins was more emblematic of his average NFL career. Sunday he goes against probably the weakest past of the Vikings' line. Sirles is a try-hard guy who was an undrafted free agent signed by the Chargers and traded to the Vikings for a low-round pick last season. He's starting because of injury and could soon be replaced by newly-signed Jake Long.
Eagles LB Nigel Bradham vs. Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph
This might be the best matchup of the game. Bradham has become the Eagles' best cover linebacker and has done a good job on tight ends all season. The Redskin' Vernon Davis' touchdown last Sunday came against safety Malcolm Jenkins, not Bradham. Rudolph is quarterback Sam Bradford's security blanket and has caught three touchdown passes this season. Bradham said he remembers going against Rudolph in a college bowl game when he was at Florida State and Rudolph was at Notre Dame. Asked how he did the linebacker smiled and responded, "I had an interception.''
Eagles RB Darren Sproles vs. Vikings LB Anthony Barr
This is a game where the Eagles need a big play from the Pro Bowl return specialist, but in the pass game. In the Eagles' last home game against Pittsburgh, Sproles had six catches for 128 yards including the 73-yard touchdown which put the game well out of reach. Barr, a former first-round pick, is an outstanding player, but has been targeted 17 times in the air and has allowed 14 catches for 170 yards and a touchdown.
Ealges DT Fletcher Cox vs. Vikings G Brandon Fusco
The Eagles' most dominant defensive player was held without a tackle in the loss to Washington. Do you know the last time that happened? His rookie year of 2012. Injuries have impacted the Vikings' offensive line as center Joe Berger is the only Week 1 starter who has not missed time due to injury. Fusco suffered a concussion early in the Week 5 win over Houston and is on track to return Sunday. This matchup is even more important with Bennie Logan likely out.
