EA­GLES STA­TIS­TICS

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Ea­gles’ keys to vic­tory: With QB Car­son Wentz back start­ing, the Ea­gles will have to get back to es­tab­lish­ing a healthy run/pass bal­ance with the em­pha­sis on es­tab­lish­ing some phys­i­cal­ity from the out­set. Wentz missed the Ea­gles’ first two games while con­tin­u­ing to re­cover af­ter tear­ing knee lig­a­ments last De­cem­ber. He was en­joy­ing a break­out sea­son in his sec­ond year in the NFL be­fore the in­jury, record­ing 33 touch­down passes against just seven in­ter­cep­tions. Es­tab­lish­ing the deep ball will be key.

Matchup to watch: Colts WR T.Y. Hil­ton vs. Ea­gles de­fen­sive backs. On de­fense, the Ea­gles need to clean up their cov­er­age is­sues and surely will ex­pect Luck and Hil­ton to go deep af­ter watch­ing all the suc­cess the Buc­ca­neers had with that tac­tic vs. the Ea­gles.

Who wins? With Wentz’s re­turn and the Ea­gles de­fense usu­ally play­ing much bet­ter at home, we can ex­pect the team’s in­ten­sity to im­prove.
