LombardiAve: When all is said and done on Sunday, what is the final score and what players made the difference?

Insidetheiggles: There is a sneaking suspicion that two great offenses face off against two so-so defenses and the score will go through the roof. But that’s not the NFL. This game will be a chess match. I think scoring will happen, but not as rapid fire as the offenses have shown.

There is a chance of snow in the forecast. If that is the case, the Eagles will go with a power set and exploit bad footing. In that case, LeSean McCoy will have a huge game, and will be complimented by passes to tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz. If the field is sound, it could turn into a pass fest.

I think Mark Sanchez will have another 300-yard passing game, and will likely have 3 passing touchdowns. I would be surprised if Jordan Matthews does NOT get one touchdown on the day.

A forgotten element of the Eagles offense is Riley Cooper. If the Packers focus on loading the box and doubling up Maclin, the Eagles will throw the ball long to Cooper.

I know the Packers are very good and are capable of winning this game, but the Eagles have lost two games in that category already. The ball bounces their way this time.

A big thanks to and Bret Stuter for going one-on-one with us this week. You can check out my side of the story on their site. I was just glad to make it through without a 4th & 26 question. That play still keeps me up some nights.
