Week 21: vs New England Patriots

All RB vs NE

FBG says: Good matchup. The Eagles running game has turned to Jay Ajayi, but what is interesting is that Jay Ajayi has started off tremendously in each of his last two games, but then has struggled throughout the second and third quarter as the defense gets in rhythm against the offense. Ajayi had 49 yards in the first quarter against the Falcons only to have 53 yards for the game. Against the Vikings, Ajayi had 20 yards on his first two carries, but only had two carries for three yards for the rest of the first half. This is a running attack that has to find more consistency in the Super Bowl in order to win this game. LeGarrette Blount has taken most of the short-yardage and goal-line work as the Eagles have tried to mix the roles of Ajayi, Blount and even Corey Clement who has filled in the third down roles. The Eagles are very strong on the offensive line with the exception of left tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai who is filling in for the injured Jason Peters. Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, and Lane Johnson have all been very solid this season. The Patriots defensive front is one of the weaknesses on this team as their front seven is the one weak spot on their team. The linebackers of the Patriots have struggled this season as Kyle Van Noy, Elandon Roberts, Marquis Flower, and Jordan Roberts have all struggled at the linebacker position while Deatrich Rowe and James Harrison have struggled at the defensive end position. On the season, the Patriots allowed 4.8 yards per carry which was the second worst in the NFL. This is the matchup that will likely determine the Super Bowl this week as if the Eagles can consistently stick with Jay Ajayi they will win this game but if they get off to a strong start and then avoid him, then it could be a tough road for them in this game.
