The Eagles have become one of the most debated teams since starting quarterback Nick Foles went down with a collarbone injury. His replacement, Mark Sanchez, still has plenty of doubters from his time as the New York Jets' signal caller. That perception may chance soon, as second-year head coach Chip Kelly has already enjoyed solid results with Sanchez under center. It also helps that the Eagles are red hot at 7-2 overall, with four wins in their last five games.
As for the Packers, they come off a roaring win over the division rival Chicago Bears that was even more lopsided than its 55-14 score would indicate. Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdowns in the first half alone, and Green Bay steamrolled Chicago in all three phases of the game. Receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb also had stellar games, catching three touchdowns between them.
One of the best stories of the 2014 season has been the resurgence of Philadelphia wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. After tearing up his knee a year ago, Maclin has become a bona fide No. 1 wideout, catching 48 passes for 828 yards and eight touchdowns. Only three receivers have more receiving yards in the NFC. The season has not gone as well for LeSean McCoy. He led the league in rushing yards in 2013 with 1,607, but has managed only 641 through 10 weeks. Worse, he averages only 3.7 yards per attempt.
No quarterback is playing better than Aaron Rodgers right now. He leads the NFL in yards per attempt with 8.7, and his 25:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio is by far the league's top mark. Top receiver Jordy Nelson has been the primary beneficiary, catching 56 passes for 889 yards and eight touchdowns. Though not quite as dominant, Randall Cobb too has produced impressive numbers, catching 44 passes for 650 yards and 10 touchdowns, the most by a wide receiver this year.
The Eagles enter Sunday's game with a record of 7-2. The Packers come in at 6-3.
