Tonight’s Monday Night Football game isn’t just a match-up of two high powered AFC teams. It’s a match-up of two teams the Eagles will face in the second half of their season. The Birds will take on the Colts next Sunday and will see the Texans come to town in Week 13.
Both teams enter the night with a record of 4-2. This will be their second match-up of the season, as they played already in Week One. The Texans came away with a 34-24 win in that game as Arian Foster was absolutely dominant.
Foster ran for 231 yards and recorded three touchdowns in the match-up and will look to have similar success tonight.
Peyton Manning and the Colts will look to split the season series and remain undefeated at home.
I’m sure the Eagles will all be at home watching as they try to learn more about their upcoming opponent. With the week off, I’m sure they’ve already seen film from the Colts this season. However, I’m sure there will be film reviews this week that come from tonight’s game as well.
Tonight should be a good learning experience for the Eagles as these are arguably the two most talented teams they will play in the remainder of their schedule.
From a fan’s perspective, I’m excited to watch the match-up closely and particularly look for areas where the Eagles may be able to exploit both teams.
If you have the time, it’s definitely a match-up that you should try to keep an eye on.
