Green Bay will be playing their fourth road game in five games. They enter Monday Night Football losers of four straight games.

In their past two defeats they allowed 47 points at Tennessee and 42 points at Washington. The Green Bay defense is 29th in the league in scoring defense and 24th against the pass. Opponents are throwing for 265 yards per game on the Packers defense. Offensively the team sits near the top third in the league in scoring pushing across nearly 25 points per game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been vocal in recent weeks about his teammates approach to games feeling the attitude is not right which is making the coaching staff feeling a bit uneasy about their roles in motivating the team. Rodgers has played in every game this season and is hitting on 63% of his throws for 2761 yards with 25 touchdowns and 7 picks. He is ahead of last year’s numbers for yardage and touchdowns as well as completing at a higher percentage.

The Philadelphia Eagles is 5-5 and has shown improvement from last year’s squad. After a 3-0 start the Eagles hit a bye week. The timing may have not been good for the off time as the team is 2-5 since then. They traveled up to Seattle last week and was beaten 26-15 as the Eagles defense allowed 439 yards to the Seahawks offense. Philadelphia is the 27th passing team in the league throwing for 222 yards per game and that is the weakest part of this team. They sit seventh in the NFL in total defense and fifth best in points allowed giving up only 18 points per game.
