Something’s got to be fixed over at the side of the Philadelphia Eagles, and if they want to make a huge statement after back-to-back losses, they can do that by bringing down the Green Bay Packers – at Lambeau Field no less. The Packers are coming off a dominant win that they are looking to duplicate this week. Check out our preview of this game below.

Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay
When: Sunday, December 6, 2020, 4:25 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (+9.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-6-1
We’re not sure what the Eagles are waiting for before they make a switch at the quarterback position because Carson Wentz is clearly not delivering for the team. Whether the Eagles’ struggles on offense are due to Wentz’s poor performance or not, Philly has to make a move, and at this point, turning to Jalen Hurt seems to be a fair adjustment. That being said, Doug Pederson appears to be leaning toward starting Wentz again, and if that’s the case, the Eagles’ defense may have to carry this team again. Philly’s defense kept the team competitive for at least the first half of last Monday’s 23-17 home loss to Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. The Eagles held Seattle down to only 225 passing yards and sacked Wilson twice. Slowing down Aaron Rodgers isn’t an easy task for any team, but between that and moving the chains, it appears that the Eagles are more equipped to accomplish the former. The Eagles have allowed just 193.0 passing yards over their last three games.
The under is 5-0 in the Eagles’ last five games overall.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (-9.5)
Regular Season Record: 7-3
After stumbling during a loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11, the Packers regrouped and unleashed hell on the Chicago Bears in a 41-25 home win last Sunday. Aaron Rodgers tossed four touchdowns and 211 yards on 21-of-29 completions. Green Bay doesn’t have the huge problem that Philly has, as Rodgers has been impressive all season long. Rodgers has 3,100 passing yards and 33 touchdowns (tops in the league) against just four interceptions. The Eagles’ pass rush will look to get to him of course, but Rodgers is protected by an offensive line that has allowed just 12 sacks on the season — third-fewest in the NFL. Green Bay’s defense, on the other hand, isn’t the best out there, but with the Eagles’ offense functioning like a disassembled Lego set with missing parts, the Packers should have success in containing Wentz and company.
The Packers are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games at home.
The Packers win, 29-21.
